"An unfettered filmmaker with considerable potential" - TV Guide On-Line
"The scenes of love making seem to dissolve the space around the lovers with an explosively sexual heat and intimacy. Although very explicit, these scenes avoid being either coy or pornographic. They are firmly embedded in the physical, but the women's bodies are neither glamorized nor mocked. Instead, the rhythms of desire flow freely (and are not confined by clichés of acted-out phony sexual climaxes) and the camera itself seems to caress the flesh before it."
-- Tom Gunning, Film Historian, author of D.W. Griffith and the Origins of American Narrative Film.
