Review: I normally would never review anything, but I saw the score this film had on here and A review and I felt it was given a disservice. I personally watched the film by mistake assuming it was Split with James McAvoy and only realized about 30 minutes in it was not, being so far in I decided to finish the film, AS any courteous film viewer would. The film as a whole is confusing, from the beginning it does not let you know what the true plot or point is, it leaves you in the same state the main character is in, facing the unknown. And as it develops you realize you are on a journey of self discovery with the lead Inanna(Amy Ferguson) and really a exploration of female sexuality and an unequal relationship. The true joy and beauty of the piece is the unapologetic female nudity and sexuality, at many moments there are women of all body types and races on screen and in no way do they feel sexualized by the male gaze or devalued in anyway. I found the male lead delightful, Derek(Morgan Spector) was played very well and the character felt deep and addled throughout, but just together enough for you to feel the same as Inanna as she falls for him. The film was supported by many great actors and actresses who made the whole feel thick and real, it hit on many issues worth thought and i would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys sexuality and intense self realization pieces. Though I must say there is a lot of sex and nudity so anyone faint of heart should think before watching but personally I say go for it. The movie is by Deborah Kampmeier, I have not seen her other films (Virgin, HOUNDDOG) but because of this film I am going to go watch them.
