    Take It Out In Trade

    ★★

    I like Ed Wood and I'm cool with exploitation films, but this film just felt like it would never end. The sex sequences were so drawn out and absurd at times that I caught myself rolling my eyes. I wasn't offended by watching this film in a theater full of strangers though, and I didn't find the interactions with women in the film to be violent, but I probably wouldn't have selected to watch this. It's an incredible part of film history though, so major kudos to AGFA & Something Weird for uncovering & preserving it.

    I love Klown, so I wanted to like this, but I just didn't. It had some funny moments, but ultimately I didn't find any of the characters' antics or bad behavior charming, I just found them all to be annoying and the plot felt thin. I didn't hate it, but I doubt I'll ever watch it again.

    This is a film full of irredeemable, selfish characters who are all incapable of dealing with their emotions properly. As things escalate further and further, and all rational thinking is completely thrown out of the window, I found myself getting legitimately stressed watching these people self-destruct. This film succeeds at getting under your skin.

    I have been called "cold" by several boyfriends over the years, but this film about teenage indiscretions and adolescent hierarchies & dynamics melted my heart. High school is a shitty time for everyone, but add great young actors, life-altering mistakes, naivety and unstable emotions into the mix and you get this unsettling teenage drama that will shake you to your core.
