Through passionate sex, soul-searching conversations ranging from politics to philosophy, and other worldly pleasures, Angela introduces Bill to another worldview.

A hollow concoction of sex, politics and endless chatter that's just a few camera angles short of hard-core porn.

Exudes an amiably accessible vibe that softens the edges of its freewheeling explicitness.

Sex or politics? Politics or sex? Director-writer Philippe Diaz can't decide what "Now & Later" should be about. So he mixes the two -- and comes up with a murky mess.

An oddball hybrid of porn film and message movie.

For all of its subtext-free critique of American hypocrisy, Now & Later's sex is strictly all-American.

The politics is probably more entertaining than the sex and neither is particularly new and exciting.

A cast and crew of newcomers bring a social/political manifesto to the big screen with mixed results.

The most sexplicit romp you'll encounter in theaters this year, guaranteed!

February 18, 2011 Full Review Source: NewsBlaze

Essentially a lazy porno with an dull plot, poor performances and tacked-on, underexplored sociopolitical messages.

An intelligent exploration of sexuality...More reminiscent of moody, literate films like "Henry & June" and "The Unbearable Lightness of Being" (and others) than "Debbie Does Dallas" or ChiChi Larue's latest gay porn epic.

Shrilly over-written and artlessly directed by Philippe Diaz, and with the same presumptuousness he brought to the documentary The End of Povery?

The writer-director cites Wilhelm Reich's theory that sexual repression leads to violence but this is merely a highfalutin way of introducing a desultory soft-core porn movie.
