"Secretary" by Yojimbo
What little I knew of this film made me fear it would be an exercise in misogynistic titillation for beer swilling macho louts. How wrong I was. What I discovered was a smart, sexy and insightful analogy for and examination of relationships, and what they represent. What could easily have been misinterpreted as exploitation of an emotionally vulnerable young woman really shows how a relationship is about the needs of the individuals involved, and if they conjoin in such a way as to satisfy both, who is to judge whether or not it is "right" or "wrong"? Maggie Gyllenhaal's evolution from self harming neurotic to happy and fulfilled young woman is far more affirming and positive than the usual Meg Ryan/Hugh Grant/Andie McDowell infested Hallmark moment churned out by the Hollywood conveyor belt. And it's actually funny.
