[Randle] holds the film together as best she can with her luminous presence and dignity, but can't supply the lacking subtext, past history and motivation.

There's something refreshing about the film's reckless proximity to anarchy, the stylishly imaginative cinematography and lusciously exorbitant Prince soundtrack, even if it does ring hollow when Lee tries to get serious on us.

Lee's never been too hip to women's perspectives, and in Girl 6, he proves that marriage, maturity and 10 years of filmmaking haven't substantially corrected his blind spot.

Lee has done the impossible: He's sucked the fun out of call-in sex and replaced it with sanctimonious prattle.

While Lee is a skillful director, he's also more coldly analytical than emotional, and it is not his style to get us to feel for this woman as much as we should.

Lee draws his lines between fantasy and reality without much confidence and with only a sketchy logic.

Lee may have a keen sense of setting and dialogue, but his characterization is off.

Frenetic but lazily conceived, it's like one of those puny low-budget toss-offs Brian De Palma used to spring on us when he thought nobody was looking.

Instead of effervescent and mercurial, the movie is simply muddled. What happened?

Mr. Lee isn't as successful at shaping a story around Girl 6, but enjoying her company is all his slender, sunny film really tries to do.

Strongly told stories have a way of carrying their characters along with them. But here we have an undefined character in an aimless story. Too bad.
