Product Overview

A dreamlike depiction of turn-of-the-century sexual deviance, from the pages of richard von kraftt-ebing's notorious medical text. A haunted vision of an era when medical science endeavored to label, cure or eliminate anyone who refused to conform to its idea of sexual 'normalcy'.

ReviewSource Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Review The roll call of sexual perversions and fetishes promised in the title are duly displayed, but Bret Wood's film is hardly exploitation. Wood's elegantly shot period piece is ostensibly an introduction to psychiatrist Richard von Krafft-Ebing's pioneering treatise on sexual deviance and perversity, illustrated by gracefully restrained set pieces that evoke the cinema of the 1920s and with dry objective medical descriptions in narrative counterpoint...It's hardly revolutionary or revealing and Wood is more craftsman than storyteller or cinema essayist. The curiously stylized piece, shot in a muted palette with performances to match (the cast is perhaps too restrained given the theatrical framework), is dramatically colorless, but the moods and moments are crafted with kinky grace.

Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune Wood has a strong visual style...Like a talkie color version of something by Lang or Murnau.
New York Magazine An impressively tense recreation of a notorious work.
