Critic Reviews for The Loss of Sexual Innocence
Not all of it works, but you play along, because it's rare to find a film this ambitious.
A promising movie from Mike Figgis. Where are you Mike?
The material is... indulgent. The film is ambitious, but somehow incomplete.
It seems more like a student film turned in as a project assignment.
One of the worst films ever made.
Audience Reviews for The Loss of Sexual Innocence
This plot-free film plays like a stream of dreams. The downside is that it also feels like a film-school experiment driven by Calvin Klein ad aesthetics. The core story is about a filmmaker who has lost much more than the film's provocative title suggests. Scenes in which a curious child evolves to a jaded adult are also intercut with a modern version of Adam and Eve in which a black man and white woman emerge from a small lake. There's enough philosophical and cinematic doodling here for several films.
Delicate approach on various,contemporary sexual topics,from the Adam-Eve standard to puzzling tales of liturgical beauty.Figgis' most allegorical film.
