Critic's Review Heading
Good
Body Shots is a graphic and sporadically compelling motion picture that uses equal parts comedy, introspection, and tragedy to offer a measure of social commentary about the confusion and frustration faced by superficial twentysomethings as they navigate a treacherous sexual road map. It's an edgy movie that doesn't pull any punches, and, despite some of the most frank discussions about oral sex in any multiplex-bound film, Body Shots managed to avoid the NC-17 kiss of death. However, even though it may be playing at a local theater, this movie is not mainstream. The characters often come across as shallow and self-absorbed, and those aren't the most appealing individuals to stay with for 100 minutes. Fortunately, as the film unspools, we detect layers in the protagonists that are not apparent from the outset. Body Shots confronts themes and issues that most movies approach from an oblique angle, if at all. Everything in this film does not work, but its failures are often more interesting than many movies' successes.
