What I liked

The repetitive, layered use of language builds up the roles and relationships between characters and provides gripping dramatic tension.

What I didn't like

Thoroughly enjoyed it!

My overall impression

As the women of the “Occupation” speak in repetitive layers of language, we are entreated to discover the roles and relationships among them. Their individual stories- youthful hopes and dreams- are movingly pitted against the bleak horrors of the times. Particularly effective are the tattoo scene between Tattoo Mother and Delivery Daughter, the revelatory scene between Patriot Mother and Delivery Daughter, and the smouldering, climactic monologue of Tattoo Mother in which the build up of language, images, and action reaches piercing intensity.

All together a bracing work worthy of our engaged viewership.

Sex Rated G by Lisa Verlo

Sex Rated G is a personal trip across Hollywood’s unsettling salacious landscape. A sexual resume told with such candor that in the end SEX will no longer be a four-letter word.
