  • EdieEmm's rating of the film Female

    5 shorts by 5 directors based on 5 stories about female sexuality written by women. Bafflingly prefaced by, & intercut with, awkwardly serious choreographed dance numbers. 1-4 each had their particular charms... And Tsukamoto's cipher would've made a compelling finale had it not been followed by another of those dance scenes. Still, not enough cinematic heft for much impact beyond Japan's current social context. 2.75
