First Desires ★½

"Hmm, this is cheesy...

Works with the nice soft focus...

Kinda creepy...

Not bad camera work, look at the weather...

Did David the director yell, 'Young beauties, let your blooming sexuality look good for the camera!'

Maybe I'm just too American...

This is very hetero, but there's some gender parity here and there...

Oh, how conveniently naked...

I know you're trying to be sincere about this, David, but...

Well, this is kinda sex positive and open, everybody 'seems' comfortable...

Again, how conveniently naked...

At least this isn't as creepy as 'Laura'...

...

Now it is.

So that's how you get our sympathy, by having the young girl do the sex when the middle-aged man begins mourning...

Is this a patriarchy we could love, David? Is that what you're asking of us?...

I wonder how old actress Monica Broeke, who played Caroline, was at the time...

Hmm, her only acting roles were in two David Hamilton movies in 1983. I wonder why...

Yuck, look at that picture of Broeke in between Hamilton's legs...

Wait, Hamilton died shortly after being accused by four women of rape?...

Well, despite seem redeemable qualities and moments, uhhh..."
