It's a mildly enjoyable romp.
Lugubrious to the extreme of unintended comedy, the movie suggests a regional dinner theater production of a late- ' 80s Peter Greenaway film.
Psychopathia Sexualis seems both plodding and snickering in its almost comically tepid rendering of masochism, homosexuality,
Psychopathia Sexualis isn't sexy enough to be soft porn. Neither will it cause an excess of cerebral stimulation.
What Woods achieves in his arch, velvet-cushioned vignettes is a sense of the subjects being reduced to symptom and diagnosis.
Not even necrophilia and the imaginative deployment of leeches can relieve this exercise in unrelenting dullness.
Manages to be provocative without being exploitative.
The turgid accumulation of tedious sex just bores.
Lurid though the material is, the film is scrupulously anti-erotic.
It's hardly revolutionary or revealing and Wood is more craftsman than storyteller or cinema essayist.
Everything you ever wanted to know about sexual perversity but were afraid to ask is on anemic display in Bret Wood's new film.
Sex can be fun and exciting and wonderful. It also can be deadly boring, as in Pschopathia Sexualis.
