It's a documentary that says that the alternate sexuality meant to set you free may require so much relationship maintenance that celibacy can start looking good.
As a thoughtful and unflinching examination of an alternative lifestyle, Sex with Strangers is a success.
Couples titillated by the possibility of swinging will probably leave the theater gripping each other's hands a little more tightly.
Finally, a movie for people who just can't get enough Jerry Springer.
I didn't find much fascination in the swinging. What they're doing is a matter of plumbing arrangements and mind games, of no erotic or sensuous charge. But that they are doing it is thought-provoking.
A film that forces you to bring along and confront your own sexual mores, whether you like it or not.
If you want to see a train wreck that you can't look away from, then look no further, because here it is.
Sex With Strangers will shock many with its unblinking frankness. But what is missing from it all is a moral. What is the filmmakers' point? Why did they deem it necessary to document all this emotional misery?
Swinging, the film makes it seem, is not a hobby that attracts the young and fit. Or intelligent.
If you've ever entertained the notion of doing what the title of this film implies, what Sex With Strangers actually shows may put you off the idea forever.
As it stands, there's some fine sex onscreen, and some tense arguing, but not a whole lot more.
