Critic Reviews for Bare
Leite directs the film with a distinctly feminine sensibility, and the meandering sexuality between Pepper and Sarah is so hazily intoxicating, you'll root for the girl-next-door to run away with the drug dealer.
Ho-hum. Yet another movie goes looking for wisdom and insight in a strip club, and yet another movie fails to find them.
Though you'll recognize familiar tropes, [Natalia] Leite's direction and Dianna Agron's performance mean that Bare is interesting in a way that feels new.
Leite's direction is artful and insightful, her dialogue sparse and real; her debut feature signifies she is a talent to watch.
Audience Reviews for Bare
A poorly made indie drama, Bare is monotonous and unfocused. When a small town girl meets a drifter the two form an unhealthy friendship that leads to her using drugs, becoming a stripper, and lying to her friends and family. Dianna Agron and Paz de la Huerta don't have any chemistry together, and give rather bland and lifeless performances. And the plot is completely pointless. It pretends to be a coming-of-age film, but it really isn't; as the character doesn't resolve any issues and seems to be as lost and confused at the end as at the beginning. Though Bare tries to say something about letting going of things and finding oneself, it ends up being a convoluted mess due to the bad storytelling.
