“I want to thank you for giving me that role.” [Ryan]
on 25 February 2016
In this 2013 drama Christian (James Deen) is a wealthy independent film financer, who has an open relationship with his bisexual girlfriend Tara (Lindsay Lohan). Christian claims that Tara will never fall in love with anyone he brings into their bed for casual sex. But is this true, or is he living an unsustainable fantasy and what secrets does Tara hide?
The opening credits show a bleak decaying urban setting and equally atmospheric music. But the early scenes show a ‘stiff’ [no pun intended] acting style with little emotion and Christian is a quite unlikeable control freak, Lohan looks tired, her voice often croaky, their relationship lacked chemistry and most characters walk and talk in an unconvincing mechanical manner while the ‘atmospheric’ pauses are too long [lose a*] .
The single disc loads to a menu offering play, chapters and set up [audio is default 5.1, subtitles in most scandavian languages].
Although filmed on a modest $250,000 it actually looks above it’s weight, being well filmed with plenty of suitable locations. This has both male and female frontal nudity, swearing from the outset and adult themes, including 3-4 brief non graphic sex scenes which are anything but erotic. An obvious late night Tv ‘adult’ movie that despite a promising plot seems to have thrown it away losing the bulk of the first hour getting to the main point. The best thing is the music, but like the ‘sexiness’, there’s far too little of it [lose another*] making this seem longer then the 96 minutes. However it comes together in the final 30 minutes which is *****, and stops this being a waste of time.
