Sexual Intelligence (Documentary/Kim Cattrall)


Picture: B-†††† Sound: C+†††† Extras: C†††† Documentary: B



With all the stupid debate about The Theory of Evolution and so-called intelligent design, Catherine Annauís terrific documentary Sexual Intelligence (2005) is an amazing look at human sexuality through the ages and how there is much more to sex and sexuality than just raw lust and intercourse.Beginning with early sex-based societies and moving forward into the often-disastrous rolling back of such freedoms and ideas, this work breaks through the lies, myths and misery that surrounds the lack of sexual discussion and freedom through interviews, facts and ideas.It is also hosted by one of the great natural beauties of her (or just about any other) generation, Kim Cattrall.


There are many images of sex, sexuality, sex organs and how societies through the millennia have seen the human form.Though some psychology is involved, program takes its time with thorough detail about all the basic aspects that need to be addressed in any mature, intelligent, adult discussion of the subject and succeeds wonderfully.Made with the HBO Network, the program is terrific, pulls back on very little and is very diverse.I give credit to the writers (Jeffrey Kindley, Richard Green and Amy Briamonte) for creating such a kind, pleasant, humorous, progressive program of the kind we do not see enough on the subject.As compared to some of the stupid, crude sex talk series on the air and equivalents in print and on the Internet, it really hits the target.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is decent and better than usual for a documentary presentation, though much of it is newly shot interviews, stills and even animation.With that said, it likely originated in digital High Definition video.The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo has no surrounds, but is very clean and clear considering Dolbyís compression scheme.Extras include a text biography on Cattrall, a Music Video and a 22:22 look at how the animation was created for this special.But the main program is the strongest point here and is highly recommended.
