sex, lies & videotape

sex, lies & videotape is fascinating. It takes a close look at a repressed woman, her relationship with her husband, and his affair with her sister. The story unfolds as an odd man who videotapes women talking about sex enters their lives.

Each scene has an incredible amount of tension, and it can be uncomfortable to watch. The acting and character development was good, as was the dialogue.

I found most of the characters to be unlikeable (except for Andie MacDowell) and I think I had been turned off by the whole movie when I first saw it decades ago. But I had a little more sympathy and less judgment this time around. Although I still had trouble sympathizing with James Spader's Graham. He just gave me the willies.
