Critic Reviews for Kissed
This uncommonly assured feature debut takes a metaphysical view of necrophilia.
Stopkewich has taken on a subject that can't help but be controversial but presents it in a way that is completely non-exploitive and non-sensational. . .it is lyrical.
It is a futile claim to make that Kissed is less about necrophilia than it is about the nature of obsession and addiction. Though this is a perennial (and often generic) theme in film, in Kissed it is uniquely characterizing.
Explores the intersection between sex, death and the search for transcendence.
Audience Reviews for Kissed
Creative progression and fantastic casting doesn't quite counterbalance the creepy necrophilic premise.
Kissed is the Citizen Kane of films involving necrophilia. it's directed very well by Lynne Stopkewich in lighting, cinematography and an emotional way of exploring the subject. I really can't think of any other film where the corpse is a male and a living breathing woman is female. This is not an exploitation movie about having sex with the dead, but an art movie about loving them romantically. The central character, played by Molly Parker, has had a fascination with death since being a child. She isn't obsessed, she just finds it compelling. It is difficult to recommend or even mention this film without getting odd looks, or questions about your own sexual behavior. But this film isn't about exploring a sexual perversion, but questioning the boundaries of love, sex, death, and the search for transcendence. Well done.
About a girl at a mortuary who finds an attraction to the dead bodies - it sounds bad, but actually it's quite tastefully done, and offers an interesting insight.
