Editorial Reviews

Sex, politics and American culture are mixed into a combustible combination in Now & Later. Angela (Shari Solanis) is an illegal Latina immigrant living in Los Angeles who stumbles across Bill (James Wortham), a disgraced banker on the run. She takes him in. Through passionate sex, soul searching conversations ranging from politics to philosophy, and other worldly pleasures, Angela introduces Bill to another worldview. As their affair heats up, the course of Bill's life begins to take an abrupt and unexpected turn. The film was conceived by the director in reaction to American s penchant for violence in our culture and our puritanical censoring of anything involving sex. Familiar with philosopher Wilhelm Reich s notion that a sexually repressed society turns into a violent one, Diaz makes an unabashedly sexual yet cerebral film that challenges the perception that sex in media is harmful.

There have been a few films in the past decade presented outside of the adult film industry that included graphic sexuality, almost all from Europe... though to my mind this is the first to show such honest and warmly sensual sexuality. If you've actually made genuine, heartfelt love to someone, you're not likely to be offended by anything you see or hear. Just the opposite.

But aside from the nudity and surprisingly graphic nature of what goes on, there's so much more here. There's a political message that needs to be told, and it's delivered with a calm and easy hand.

The heroine (Now) is a creature of intelligence, genuine love and simple, unquestioning compassion the likes of which one seldom finds in film, or for that matter in life. The leads in this small cast effort let loose and express real emotion in a way that almost convinces you that they're lovers in real life, though they only met after being cast.

Writer and director Phillipe Diaz has created a small masterpiece. The scenes are long and languid, the script is conversational - this is how people actually talk to each other. Above all else it's difficult to imagine another actress bringing this story to life as exquisitely as Shari Solanis, whose performance is worthy of an Academy Award, though this will never happen.

Very, very highly recommended to those with open minds and open hearts. I can honestly say that after watching film both as entertainment and as an essential art form for over four decades, I've never seen anything quite like it. Unforgettable. Perhaps even a turning point in contemporary cinema.

The only thing I want to add, seeing the other reviews covered it well, is that the background music is awesome too. Wish there was a soundtrack. The acting, is, exceptional, especially considering how most would be awkward 'performing' the dialogue and the sexual interactions, but they were so natural and convincing. This movie is special on many levels. The sex is real, and visually erotic. Fantastic photography or whatever they call it, filming... And the way she deals with the condom situation was fantasticly graceful.

This film is an obscure gem and I love discovering obscure gems. If you were to ask the next 50 people you encounter if they know this movie, I'll bet that not a single one of them will answer in the affirmative. Few people know of it and it is a shame because this is hidden treasure. Ms. Solanis truly deserves an Academy Award for Best Actress, and I bet even Meryl Streep would agree. Solanis plays an illegal alien who agrees to help a white-collar fugitive. He has absconded while out on bail on allegations of unlawful market manipulation. He was supposed to surrender to do eight years in Federal prison. She is a beautiful Bohemian free-spirit. She lives on the top floor of a seemingly abandoned building in a downtown urban area (I think it was L.A.). The mood throughout the film is dark and murky, and most of the scenes are in dark locales.

They spend a lot of time on the roof of her building at night, looking down at the festering city below. He comes from wealth and privilege, she comes from Nicaragua and extreme hardship. She is radiant and gorgeous, and he is wounded and condemned. She feels compassion for him, even though he represents much of what she despises about the US. Her kindness is unbounded, and she attempts to renew in him a sense of purpose and future. Her sexual favors are just part of a series of efforts to make the fugitive feel whole again. The fugitive character is kind of repressed and vanillafied, but I think that was by design. He's the standard investment-banker-sleaze stereotype from a Connecticut McMansion, and she's an authentic and robust jewel straight from heaven. But she does not judge him harshly or condescend. She understands his path. This is a movie which is ultimately most about compassion.

An excellent film! It was recently said by someone in the Adult Entertainment Industry that said Industry needs to make a great film this year. "Now & Later" is exactly what the Adult Industry needs to produce and create to reverse its creative decline. "Now & Later" is a film about adults, for adults, for couples, for thinking men and women. If one happens to be reading about the early 20th Century and can see parallels and/or history repeating itself, one can see how America evolved to be the way it presently is. This film gives excellent insight into how and why the rest of the world sees us as backwards, stifled, unenlightened, sexually immature, uneducated and illiterate about gender and culture. We have called other countries a lot of names over the decades, but some of the worst apply right here at home to us. One can see why other nations are resistant to American "nation building" and certainly reluctant to pursue an American form of republican (with a small "r") democracy. We should be taking our own society and culture apart and completely re-building our own nation in this election year. One can see why we have the largest number of citizens behind bars of any nation on the planet; it is very easy to become a criminal in this country whether one wants to or not. It is in American heritage, blood, genes, cells and DNA. We have and always will be fighters not lovers.
