Barbara Nicolosi: Church of the Masses. “I thought about the movie, what I have always thought about the TV show. Sex in the City is not so much about sex as it is about female friendship. And more particularly, how female friendship allows women to survive their relationships with men.
“I am also always fascinated by how episode after episode—and to a lesser extent the movie—seems to be a Genesis mystery play built around God, rubbing the Divine eyes in the Garden and grimly forecasting to the Woman, “Your desire will be for your husband, and he will Lord it over you.” SATC is nothing if isn’t watching women desperately trying to obtain and then maintain the male focus.”
If you do nothing else cinematic this year, try try try to see Surfwise at one of it’s limited engagement screenings. Or buy it on DVD when it comes out. Of the 400 films you miss this year, DON’T miss this one.
