Critics reviews

Like De Sade, ECSTASY’s characters concern themselves with problems of revolutionary ethics, though the questions they struggle with are more pragmatic than the Marquis’ (Is party loyalty important above all else or is there a place for individual autonomy in the revolution? Is sexual attachment compatible with a revolutionary society?) A little campy at times, but interesting stuff for those with a predilection for radical politics and free love raunch.
