Sex with Strangers

2002-02-22 17:00:11+00 by Dan Lyke 4 comments

Wow, if I was at all interested, the Salon interview with the creators of the HBO documentary "Sex With Strangers" removed any desire to see it. I realize that television needs to be entertaining, but their discussion of how they picked the subjects make this sound like a bad "reality TV" concept, not a documentary.

I saw this on HBO when it first came out. Two of the three couples come across like children playing with matches. They were so immature they shouldn't have been having sex with each other, much less with anyone else.

There wasn't a person on the screen that I wanted to have coffee with.

Dori, unless I'm wrong, this documentary has not been on HBO. It is showing at one theater in San Francisco.

My mistake (and Dan's, too, now that I look at the history). It was on Showtime, not HBO.


But in general, it's not the first time that a documentary has shown on pay TV and then had a theatrical run later.

Yep, I confused that their previous films were HBO with the current one.
