Not a Love Story

Time Out says

A crusading attack on pornography by concerned mother Klein, seconded by a Montreal stripper (Tracey) with a cute comedy act and increasing doubts about her profession. Klein's pretty depressing view that porn is not culturally determined, but born of some 'inherently male' drive to hurt and defile, seems almost oblivious to basic and much-debated questions such as how to find the thin blue line between hardcore and misogyny in 'respectable' representations of women, or the potentially enlightening effect of porn's explicitness about female sexuality (both points raised by Kate Millett in an all-too-brief sequence). Most disturbing of all is that Klein's own camera is itself often compulsively and rather unpleasantly voyeuristic.
