Critic Reviews for Girl 6

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (12)

[Randle] holds the film together as best she can with her luminous presence and dignity, but can't supply the lacking subtext, past history and motivation.

Top Critic

There's something refreshing about the film's reckless proximity to anarchy, the stylishly imaginative cinematography and lusciously exorbitant Prince soundtrack, even if it does ring hollow when Lee tries to get serious on us.

Time Out
Top Critic

Lee's never been too hip to women's perspectives, and in Girl 6, he proves that marriage, maturity and 10 years of filmmaking haven't substantially corrected his blind spot.

Top Critic

Lee has done the impossible: He's sucked the fun out of call-in sex and replaced it with sanctimonious prattle.

Rolling Stone
Top Critic

While Lee is a skillful director, he's also more coldly analytical than emotional, and it is not his style to get us to feel for this woman as much as we should.

Frenetic but lazily conceived, it's like one of those puny low-budget toss-offs Brian De Palma used to spring on us when he thought nobody was looking.

Audience Reviews for Girl 6


It's a very average Joint as nothing really happens in the form of true plot points. It's a about an aspiring actress who finds talents in the phone sex business. Problem is nothing really happens besides that? No real big plot ordeals or challenges in the film. It's just a Woman who works as a sex operator and we see very little insight to more in her life.

76% "This movie is gonna be big, bigger then big, huge, the greatest romantic African American film ever made. Directed by me, of course, told by the point of view, of a African American woman."-Director #1 N.Y. "Q.T." (Quentin Tarantino)
