... the film is passably entertaining but dramatically inert.
Full Review | Original Score: C-

By the end, you're likely to be left wondering, 'What was the point of what I just watched?'
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
March 8, 2007
An act of nearly overwhelming self-congratulation ... like Wings of Desire directed by Zalman King.
May 22, 2007
It lacks any introspection to illuminate the erotic subject matter.

Critics I admire have assured me that many of Brisseau's earlier films are less silly, more interesting, and even commendable.
May 10, 2007
It's not smart enough to actually pull off what it purports to do, and it's not free enough to simply enjoy itself.

March 7, 2007
A very straightforward, if absurdly executed, argument in favor of not just the director's innocence, but the essential hysterical whorishness lying dormant in the modern female.
May 10, 2007
Little more than Lesbians Lesbians Lesbians.

The only thing shocking about this French film is its Puritanical finale.

It's about the sex, stupid.

This is the stuff of male fantasy.

Has heat but little light; it speaks of pleasure while treating it as a dirty word. The cast huffs and puffs but the exercise, sadly, remains academic.

Can the modern man handle Brisseau's cup of tea? The answer: Dude! All-girl threesome!
| Original Score: 3/5

Erection-inducing but borderline gynophobic.

March 2, 2007
The coldness of the artist in observing life is here so embarrassingly done as to unintentionally bring about titters, not titillations.
May 4, 2007
Gorgeous French silliness, yes, featuring stunning women having languorous, artful sex with each other. What was I saying? Oh yes, the silliness. Artful, gorgeous, sexy, sure, but ridiculous nonetheless.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Exterminating Angels is beautifully lensed and acted, but it lacks substance.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 11, 2007
Endless auditions get the annoying Francois nowhere closer to grasping what turns women on.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 5, 2007
The director can't get past his notion of himself as a fearlessly transgressive artist-hero, a martyr to the limitations of male gaze. With all those lovely naked women helping him act out his own Promethean fall, it's less autocritique than autoeroticism
March 7, 2007
The movie, for all its huffing and puffing, explores very little, even if some of it is sexy in a Howard Stern-meets-9 1/2 Weeks way.
