Customer Review

on 17 January 2010
This film should really have five stars but it looses one for Dave Formula's unimaginative music but more of that later.

This collection is of interest to anyone who finds discussions of sexual mores fascinating and anyone who wishes to study Discourses surrounding bodies and sexualities. The films herein do not show how we became more liberated (even Growing Up is highly problematic for all it's apparent liberation) but the body became and remained a site for a very Authoritarian Discourse on how The Body was to be used, who controlled The Body and the individuals freedom (or lack thereof) to own their own body. It is telling that only the last few films (Growing Up and Have you Got A Male Assistant Please Miss) discuss masturbation and contraception.

Given this Dave Formula misses the opportunity to discuss these issues in his music for the early silent films in the collection and produces three very similar sounding, formulaic (no pun intended) scores.

Highly recommended none the less.

Oh and if you just want to have a bit of a giggle the collections good for that too.
