Sex Is Comedy is not sure what it's really about, or how to get there.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
More intriguing than it is entertaining.
As usual with Breillat, not much happens outside the boudoir.
| Original Score: 2/5
a mistitled disaster
| Original Score: 1.5/5
All of this might have made a really great short film. But at feature length, it is tedious self-indulgence.
| Original Score: 2/4
While it could have been an interesting behind-the-scenes look at the making of a movie, with substantial full frontal nudity, it is a bore.
| Original Score: 4/10
Auto-critique or ego trip? Sex Is Comedy is a little bit of both-sadly more of the latter.
Curious but small and lackluster film.
Breillat herself manages to jerk off for 92 long minutes and never comes... she actually seems to fake herself into thinking she's had an artistic orgasm.
Talky and mostly humorless.
You so won't care.
This is amusing, and even poignant in the final moments. But Breillat just can't help herself.
If you sometimes have the feeling French films are made by the most spoiled and self-involved upper-middle-class twits imaginable, it might be because of such films as Sex Is Comedy.
Annoying, soporific and, despite its title, singularly humorless.
| Original Score: 1/4
Reminds us what a vulnerable undertaking acting can be, and what an intimate, manipulative, caring and torturous act directing is.
An eyes-rolling, forehead-smacking glimpse through the eyes of an artist in her farcical struggle
| Original Score: 3/4
An insightful glimpse into the mechanics of filmmaking.
| Original Score: 3/5
| Original Score: 4/5
an off-putting egocentrism...permeates [Breillat's] otherwise intriguing discourse on the relationship between directors and actors
| Original Score: B-
It feels too self-satisfied, but the prickly personalities and relationships have the ring of experience.
