  • Wee Hunk's rating of the film Adrift

    It's similar to a sex comedy, except that there's no comedy. Only Europeans can get away with that much sex and nudity and it can still be an art film. It's also a bit surreal. Not bad acting for a Playboy bunny, which also accounts for the nakedness.

  • rulesofachia's rating of the film Adrift

    Still wrapping my head around it but it was quite interesting. It's an allegorical drama that tells a mythological tale of sorts. A bit meandering but some sublime imagery. Especially the seasonal rituals and the white dresses. Not sure why some ppl are exaggerating the amount of nudity, there really isn't that much.

  • Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Adrift

    Adrift is the third film of a rarely discussed but important trilogy of director Jan Kadar that includes The Shop on the Main Street and The Angel Levine . In all the three films, the male central character is the pivot of the story and a major female figure dies as a result of the male character’s actions. My detailed review is at
