This review is from: Secretary [DVD]  (DVD)A deeply thought-provoking film, dealing in a masterly and subtle way with the dark side of human sexuality. The psychological damage shown by the two protagonists is realistically and convincingly portrayed, highlighting their humanity through the use of both humour and pathos. The ending is perhaps a little contrived, but nevertheless this is a film which you will keep on thinking about long after you have seen it.

Deeply thought provoking? Really? I'd be fascinated to know what deep thoughts it provoked. The film concerns a pervy lawyer who gets off on spanking his secretary. However, for reasons best known to himself, this kink makes him feel very guilty. However, the secretary, fortunately, gets off on being spanked too and so they all live happily ever after in their kinky, pervy world. It's a great laugh and actually very arousing but "deeply thought provoking"? - definitely not.

Psychological damage? I saw no evidence of anything of the sort. The 'secretary' of the piece discovers her sexuality through her relationship with her employer and he finds, at last, someone who challenges him in the way he craves. Take out the expression of this storyline and you have 100 other movies. The implication that their specific, shared fetish is an expression of psychological trauma is to miss the point entirely.
