The Man Who Loved Women

0 Love It
Save it
Charmless tale of a man whose one interest in life is looking at, pursuing, and making love to women, an obsession leading him to a premature (for him, if not for the audience) death. Seen by some as a misogynist catalogue, by others as a mature, detached examination of an unsympathetic character's fatal passion for largely indifferent females, either way it irritates by its overwrought sense of literary-style paradox, by its insistence on eccentricity as its source of humour, and by its haphazard and gratuitous form: constructed largely in flashbacks, it nevertheless fails to explain or illuminate its central character's behaviour.
