Brisseau's filmmaking style is artful and clever ... so it's a pity when he begins to wallow in corny moralising and operatic excesses.

I wouldn't entirely dismiss it, but I would be reluctant to say I found too much about it that warmed my heart and appeased my soul.

Brisseau is getting at the heart of human nature and the price of ambition, and he's cutting with a sharp knife, revealing all of its entrails whether you like it or not
| Original Score: 4/5

Imagine Emmanuelle remade on a shoestring budget or Eyes Wide Shut staged by a community theater group.

May 14, 2004
A lot of sexy stuff wrapped in an obvious morality tale with some philosophical hooey and clunky symbols thrown in to justify the cheap, but undeniable, thrills.

While some might mistake it as a bitter view of sexual politics and empowerment, it's also pretty crass filmmaking.

Ridiculous and pretentious and just plain nutty

... a sexy movie.
April 30, 2004
The film is well made, well acted, cleverly written, photographed by Wilfrid Sempe as if he's a conspirer with the sexual schemers.

April 29, 2004
Either a highly erotic art film trading in sex, power and morality, or a trashy porno pretending to be deep. After watching two hours of hot young French women having sex with men, each other and themselves, I have to go with the latter.

Part sexual odyssey (more a sexual inferno), part trenchant sociological exposť.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
April 11, 2004
While the points it hammers home with all the subtlety of a Vivid Video girl's come-on are anything but pointless, the film begins an inexorable slide into outright silliness by the third act.

With plenty of girl-on-girl action, this is the movie that photographer David Hamilton would love to make.

There comes a moment in all truly terrible movies when you sense that you couldn't possibly be co-existing on the same planet as the filmmakers.

The film is interesting, sexy and at times silly.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
March 19, 2004
Deteriorates into a silly farce that lands somewhere between Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut and Guccione's Caligula.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 16, 2004
You couldn't nail a particular kind of modern French film better if you tried: explicit sex, bad behavior, and shrieking pretention all in one lumpy shock-the-bourgeoisie package.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Secret Things is definitely erotic and will appeal to prurient interests with its soft core pornography. But there is also the tale of ambition...
Full Review | Original Score: B-
March 7, 2004
a cinematic joy ride, an outrageous jaw dropper that explores serious themes under the guise of gaudy entertainment
Full Review | Original Score: B
