Ratings & Reviews

  1. Tone Ottilie Frederiksen's rating of the film Dyketactics

    Barbara Hammer shows the already wellknown fact that dykes are the most awesome people in the world.

  2. Thomas's rating of the film Dyketactics

    Raw celebration of female sensuality and gender politics. Hypnotically understated. I can imagine many people thought this film was far too short on its release.

  3. ltshaveatea's rating of the film Dyketactics

    So much beauty! Bodies, light, nature, intensity of a happy moment. No style. Just beauty and real women

  4. Funda Can Çuvalcı's rating of the film Dyketactics

  5. Montse's rating of the film Dyketactics

  6. dionysus67's rating of the film Dyketactics

    Interesting depiction of intimacy, evocative and purged of guilt about the human body, its flaws and its craving for desire. The superimpositions initially don't work and the sexual politics are not entirely free of facile romanticism. Overall, though, it succeeds in the naturalism with which it portrays sexual pleasure.

  7. Alex Doca's rating of the film Dyketactics

    Erotic confusion and experimentation.

  8. João Miguel Queiroz's rating of the film Dyketactics

    Hammer superimposes videos and makes the viewer delve into a unique universe. Permeated by a sense of innocence linked to youth, the film ends up having an effect of making the spectator remember moments lost in time. An excellent piece of art.

  9. David R Williams's rating of the film Dyketactics

    "...a four-minute, hippie wonder consisting of frolicking naked women in the countryside, broke new ground for its exploration of lesbian identity, desire and aesthetic. "

  10. katerpink's rating of the film Dyketactics

    Let's just appreciate how important it was at the time it has been made.

  11. Katherine Lo's rating of the film Dyketactics

    I wanted to enjoy it but I found myself mostly cringing halfway in. The overlapping, spinning, zooming in & sex don't mean anything. Using straight up porn to discuss gender and sexual identity is lazy. Not to mention the bloody music still ringing in my head.

  12. Sofia Due Rosenzweig's rating of the film Dyketactics

    Review in haiku Here's a beautiful reason of course i love it

  13. medamagumi's rating of the film Dyketactics

    Natural light that we can see in this film is very beautiful and vivid. It was Mached with the cheep sound track. I remembered the innocent feelings of a day of art college student...

  14. Sean Honey's rating of the film Dyketactics

    This film made me realize how much I have forgotten about sensuality. How refreshing to see these tender, beautiful, real images. Honest and celebrating. This film rules!

  15. Tarissanjulia's rating of the film Dyketactics

  16. EdieEmm's rating of the film Dyketactics

    Subversion's not usually so... radically nurturing. Thought-provoking tactics. A queer politic of love.

  17. zubee's rating of the film Dyketactics

  18. Loz Loory's rating of the film Dyketactics

    Aside from the pitch of those high flute sounds, this was lovely. Am imagining it must have been revolutionary for its time, as happiness is shown being had without a penis in sight. Now it seems not such a big deal; just people enjoying themselves and each other. Loved the superimposition of a pomegranate ;)

  19. mpho3's rating of the film Dyketactics

    I wish I could comment on this without leaving a rating, except I don't have a comment.... I guess this is one of those things where you can have appreciation for the cutural-historical context, subtext, intertextuality, or what have you, yet still be glad that it was only 4 minutes (punctuated as they are by candles, bush, and more Moog than is justifiable).

  20. DrFirestone's rating of the film Dyketactics

    Interesting use of overlapping images - multiple layers dancing not quite in sync with a weirdly strange, but mesmerising score. It basically is a time-capsule travelling back to 1974, a period that I find fascinatingly inspiring. Other than that, and without the context, it doesn't make much sense, nor does it have any emotional impact. What if it wasn't made by a lesbian, but a gay, or a "plain" hetero? Hmm...

  21. JoAnne Voightlander's rating of the film Dyketactics

    The most important detail for me is in the shot that begins at the 3-minute mark: the caress of a nipple and its breast, then suddenly- dirty fingernails. We have a clear view of those fingernails for several seconds. To have abandoned self-consciousness to such a final degree, even during intimacy... that would be deep liberation. Some feminism must take place in one's soul. This film is *very* 1974, but important.

  22. Chearth's rating of the film Dyketactics

  23. Nicole's rating of the film Dyketactics

    Barbara Hammer was something else

  24. Dag Kaszlikowski's rating of the film Dyketactics

    As light, fulfilling and inconsequential as only Sunday morning sex can be. It makes lesbian love what it really is without heavy handed, socially charged, naive and fully dressed millennial LGTB propaganda. But hey, it was 1974 when everything was possible.
