| Sterile, pedantic, contrived, too artsy, self important
Couldn't finish watching this film. It used the contrivance of men being interviewed to create an exposition on male / female relations.

I found it choppy (quick cuts between scenes and interviews and even within interviews). It pontificated and had the stilted quality of a stage play. The interviews were uninteresting and stereotypical monologues and the men were mostly caricatures. While it tried to be deep, it was deep in the way an undergraduate is deep (meta criticism within the film itself) - a fist full of knowledge, poorly digested and portentously revealed.

The lead actress was a passive doll throughout most of what I saw with whom I neither empathized or cared. I didn't care about any of the characters, and the construct of people talking to the camera outside the interviews was too self conscious.

It was a film school, self-conscious mess with no heart and too much head, uninterestingly directed.
