Slow And Talky
Throughout, I felt like a fly on the wall at a psychiatrist’s private session with a client. One character asks another an intimate question; the second character responds. Then someone asks another question, to which a low-key response is given, and on and on. I don’t recall a movie wherein characters ask each other so many nosy, intimate questions. With its voyeuristic theme, this film gets just a tad too personal for my taste.
Four attractive, thirty-something yuppies, two males and two females, with nothing on their minds but sex, ask, probe, inquire, explore, and poke around each others’ psyche, spurred on by one of the male characters (James Spader) who likes to videotape sex interviews with women. Fortunately, Spader gives a convincing performance, one that renders the story credible, if the viewer is interested in this sort of thing.
It’s a modern story, similar in some ways to “Carnal Knowledge” (1971), but more up-to-date with the video technology. Scenes are filmed mostly in interiors, which gives the story a claustrophobic feel and a sense of intimacy. We get to know the four characters, maybe a little more than I would have liked. All of them are flawed and therefore very human. The Peter Gallagher character is a scoundrel and easy to dislike. The two women are sisters and very unlike, one an uptight introvert, the other a rather salacious extrovert.
The plot is slow, with long camera “takes”. The script is talky. Dialogue trends too on-the-nose at times. The camera is rather static and unobtrusive. I didn’t like the grainy visuals of the taped interviews.
Low-budget and very low-key, “Sex, Lies, And Videotape” will appeal to viewers who like films wherein characters talk a lot about sex. There’s not much “action”. But all that erotic talk substitutes for action. Which is really the whole point of the film.
A bit underwhelming !!!
On first viewing, I didn’t really love it. There are aspects of it like the editing, James Spader’s performance which though calm on the surface constantly hints at the darkness simmering beneath, some of the subtle camera work, etc. which I can admire. But overall I was somewhat underwhelmed. However my perception might change on subsequent viewings.
