Rate this:
sex, lies, and videotape-a character-driven drama-is a nuanced, beautifully controlled examination of how a quartet of people is defined by their erotic impulses and inhibitions. Baton Rouge belle Ann is a repressed cheerleader who is now a repressed wife. Her husband John is a dimpled, haberdashing bayou tomcat, partner in a fancy law firm. Ann's caustic sister Cynthia, a punky bartender in cowgirl boots, is getting even with her prettier, more popular sister. All three are upset by the arrival of Graham, an old fraternity brother of Johns whose "personal project" becomes the catalyst for these four to face their inner demons and reevaluate their relationships.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

I am not sure if this movie was overrated, or if it just didn't age that well. The James Spader chatacter is great, but we really don't learn enough about him to make sense of his odd project. I didn't find the dialogues particularly captivating, and for a film about sex, it's surprisingly cold.
