Red Shoe Diaries Reviews

  • Aug 16, 2011

    Duchovny's acting range is limited but he is good at playing scuzzbags pretty well (hence why he is good in Californication on Showtime. He really is a scuzzbag). Zalman King's films and short stories are incredibly steamy...for 1992. Today they seem kind of pretentious and contrived. His masterpiece, 9 1/2 Weeks, still serves as a benchmark for pure cinematic eroticism. His Red Shoe Diaries were similar in nature but offered us more a chance to see present day celebrities in more compromising roles, which is a good thing (There's a Red Shoe Diary episode where Matt LeBlanc does a full frontal scene. Yikes). This screen adaptation was merely a jumped up Red Shoe episode. Entertaining and erotic yet predictable. A good thing to watch with your girlfriend or wife right before the nipple makes its first appearance :-)

    Woman is unable to cope with having two lovers, so she slits her wrists. Hard to feel much sympathy here. Launching pad for cable series culminates in rather laughable settling of two men's differences on the basketball court.

    Not sure how to rate this one since it was technically Duchovny talking during a few softcore porn scenes. So I can't very well say I enjoyed it, or recommend it.

    Don't ask. I only watched it because I was a teenage rebel. Soft porn bullshit!

    Not a bad movie. Kind of slow and dragging at times. Well acted by David.

    SPOILER ALERT Such a sexy film. Beautifully shot and directed. It's definitely a visual masterpiece, and that guitar filled score really set the mood for this sultry tale. The plot itself is quite good, nothing out of the ordinary but the direction and visual style kept the narrative so interesting. Kudos to the director for that. The ending however, with Duchovney's character putting out the ad for more diaries, that doesn't make sense at all.
