FEMALE MISBEHAVIOR is a collection of five of Treut's films that explore the outer limits of female sexuality and behavior. Each film features a woman who has challenged the status quo, provoking shock and outrage in some and gaining respect and admiration from others.
ANNIE is an inside look (in more ways than one) at Annie Sprinkle, porn-star, performance artist and sexual diva. DR. PAGLIA is a confrontation with Camille Paglia, the infamous author. BONDAGE centers on an S&M practitioner and her use of pain as pleasure. MAX is the story of a transsexual's journey from female to male. And the feature length DIDN'T DO IT FOR LOVE explores the fascinating life of Eva Norvind, the blond Norwegian bombshell who was Mexico's Marilyn Monroe in the 1960's and New York's leading dominatrix turned therapist in the 1980's, and who passed away recently. New York Magazine calls it a "one of a kind documentary" that is a candid portrait of a complex and unforgettable woman.

Rather than being a single movie, this is a collection of four different short films by Monika Treut, each essentially independent of and unrelated to each other:
* An interview with Camilla Paglia
* An interview (of sorts) with Annie Sprinkle (nee Ellen Steinberg)
* An interview with a woman discussing her interest in S&M and bondage
* An interview with a transgender man, originally born as a woman
I found all of the interviews interesting to some extent. Paglia's is probably the most interesting, if for no other reason than her views are the most intellectualized and so are expressed more successfully in the interview format.
Sprinkle is mainly discussing why she enjoys dressing up, the positive way it makes her feel. But the segment also touches briefly (no pun intended) on Sprinkle's efforts to demystify sexuality, and the female body in particular.
The interviews discussion bondage and transgender issues were probably more illuminating when originally made. With the advent of the Internet information about all kinds of things, including sexuality, flows more freely and people have broader exposure to alternative lifestyles and issues, even if those lifestyles or issues are inapplicable. And no doubt the intervening years have brought advances in transgender surgeries, making that interview at least somewhat out-of-date. Still, I'm sure there are people for whom these interviews offer new and interesting information.
My biggest complaint (and it's not that big) has to do with the name of the collection. "Female Misbehavior" is just way off.Read more ›
