Women In Love Review


OK
Ken Russell's Women in Love is alternately heralded and dismissed by viewers. I stand somewhere in the middle: It's a definite mess, though the titular women out-act the men they're ostensibly in love with. Russell's at his pervy best here (and Glenda Jackson was the first actress to win an Oscar in a movie featuring a nude scene; in this case her own plus a notorious all-male, all-nude, fireside wrestling sequence), and his interpretation of D.H. Lawrence's book is on the liberal side. But ultimately the film is so confusing and meandering that its perversity is shuffled under the rug of its own pretensions. Still, it's memorable for both its era-specific shock value and for Jackson's alternately sweet and vicious performance.

The Apple Review


Weak
This bizarre musical about music, drugs, Orwellian overlords, and the future (it's set in 1994!) doesn't get a lot of respect, and that's because it's pretty much crap. No, we're not wearing metallic ponchos and triangles on our foreheads, but they sure did a good job at guessing what the hairstyles of the '90s would look like. The story involves nefarious goings-on in a mega-powerful record label that isn't really worth describing here, on account of it has no Hasselhoff in it at all. However, I'm sure the backstory about how this movie got made is fascinating.
