We have a therapist Peter, who is lost, and a mistress Suzanne who is emotionally constipated and a little bitter. Whether Peter is a successful therapist or not, who knows, the movie is cliché free, nothing is being force-fed to the audience. We&#39;re shown a real man, a man who like all of us was a child and had to grow up. Only Peter dreams of rebirth, that is what his sessions with Suzanne are all about. He gives up the reins in an acknowledgement that he has not got whatever it was he was looking for (not necessarily success, which is the cliché most American movies use), and he&#39;s willing to let someone else take over. He wants help, the way his mother helped him overcome his stutter when he was a child.<br/><br/>Suzanne is an outsider, a girl with a foreign accent who became a pariah at school after fellating a boy who then told the whole school. Hers is a fantasy of control, and of detachment, a kind of revenge.<br/><br/>The movie is a pavane, slow, delicate, intriguing, melancholy. A subplot which could be easily missed is Peter&#39;s daughter, who we never really see up close. She sends a postcard from Venice, a beautiful black and white photograph of the Bridge of Sighs. In the final shot of the movie she is paddling a bright yellow canoe up and down the river, at a distance. So what we have here is a man becoming a statue, slowly crystallising, the potentialities of life disappearing, clearly counterpointed by the life of his daughter. &quot;Isn&#39;t it funny...&quot;, he said, &quot;how once they tell you everything, and now they tell you nothing.&quot; Going Under is a very quiet film, there are no pop culture references, no special effects, no regurgitation. It takes place in an anonymous America, a place devoid of national sentiment. The movie is commenting on two individuals, not the state of the nation, and really not the BDSM community (we are shown a scene in a bar that really juxtaposes what goes on in the community generally to what is going on with out characters specifically, which is quite different). Quite how such a personal film ever got made I don&#39;t know, but I salute the filmmaker Eric Werthman for this attempts.<br/><br/>It is clear that some of the movie-making is not professional, one example being that you can hear Suzanne and Peter talking in a car when the doors are closed and the camera is outside, this is a paradoxical sort of a scene where the status of the camera as interloper is compromised. Also the acting is not always wholly capable. But I think that the suspension of disbelief is never quite compromised.

The movie did not really do anything for me, I was not even the least turned on by what was going on on the screen.<br/><br/>The movie is suppose to be about a man whose relationship with his dominatrix is about to end due to her retirement and he&#39;s attempting to get over this, by starting a personal relationship with her.<br/><br/>This is where the movie side steps as the film becomes more about her life, why she&#39;s leaving the profession, and what got her there in the first place. It&#39;s not that the movie was all over the place it&#39;s just not what I signed up for and unfortunately the movie was not good enough to keep me interested after discovering how non-erotic it was.<br/><br/>The only bright spot of the movie was the performance of Roger Rees as the married therapist who attempting to adjust with loosing his steady relationship with his madam.<br/><br/>This was a miss not worth trying to catch.

If you enjoy pain or become excited wearing latex garments or are turned on by a dominatrix with a whip, then this film is for you. If you are turned on by S&amp;M and bondage, then you will thoroughly enjoy &quot;Going Under&quot;. In fact, you will consider it a breakthrough in mainstream cinema for its kinky sexuality.<br/><br/>Eric Werthman like Peter Greenaway revels in having known male lead actors do full frontal nudity. Unlike Greenaway&#39;s dynamic (some would say bombastic) performances; Werthman&#39;s actors&#39; performances are flaccid (pun intended) at best. Low key to the point of being comatose is not a good thing. <br/><br/>However, if you find the image of a naked man with a ball in his mouth being spanked on the bottom with a rubber paddle by a women in latex to be silly and boring...simply put, this movie will bore you to death. I personally found it to be as erotic as watching paint dry.<br/><br/>But if you are interested in that sort of thing (and there&#39;s nothing wrong with that)...feast...enjoy...have fun! I just thought that it was stupid.
