With repeated use of such ridiculous, 'risqué' terms as 'the love lunch' and 'sex singer,' can anyone take this film seriously as drama or erotica?

Audience Reviews for The Blood Oranges

This film is from the 1997 Toronto International Film Festival, and its a film I would expect at a Film Festival it just had that theme about it. Philip Haas took what would have been just another story and turned it into a masterpiece. The backgrounds were fantastic, and locations out of this world. Story about Love, Romance, Sex and Desire. Put me in a house like this to live. As far as the love life sorry don't share with anyone. Its worth 4 stars. If you haven't seen films from International Film Festivals you should, most never see the light of day on TV or US Movie theaters, you will be shocked at what you can find. Again 4 Stars

An intriguing movie about love, relationships, and blind desires. Interesting story plot and cast.

i remember thinking this movie was okay, I really had wanted to see it because I loved Haas' Music of Chance and Angels and Insects, and then was shocked when everyone hate, hate, hated it. I'd be hard pressed to remember much about it, except that it kept my attention throughout. Should really rewatch this one.
