How Teens are Portrayed in Films,
This review is from: Indie Sex (Amazon Instant Video)
The Indie Sex series is very much like a VH-1 "I Remember the 80, 90's" programs. A series of commentators that talk about a film and then a clip of that film is shown. In these hour and five minute Indie Sex segments, this production gets tedious. Indie Sex: Censored, see a longer description.
Teens is one of the decent segments in this series. The discussion is about how teenage sex is portrayed on film. It's a very wide range of films, from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, to Catherine Breillat's Fat Girl. The discussion has no fears.
The downside to all these segements, and this one in particular, the commentators are very unattractive. The two or three male film critics are particularly hard to watch. One younger critic had almost nothing interesting to add, he sounded more like he should comment on MTV or VH-1 trying to be funny or cute somehow. Dita Von Teese, a former playmate that attractive like a 50's pin up, is one of the more interesting guests.
The film choices were excellent. Thirteen, Little Darlings, Fast Times, and Breakfast Club, Fat Girl, Romance, are all talked about. The clips are R rated and don't really push the NC-17 territory.
Extremes is also a very good installment in this series.
