User Reviews

Smart, talented, funny, and oddly sexy
2 May 2003 | by bkamolnickSee all my reviews

Sandra shows that she really has loads of talent in this quasi-concert film, a la Stop Making Sense.

She is too-hip-gotta-go in attitude, but this is part of her schtick. The revelation here is her voice - which is absolutely lovely. The band and musical arrangements are very cool, and slyly swinging.

The format of the film is very clever, and most of the pieces work wonderfully. When she announces that her true musical hero is Patti Smith any reservations I had crumbled, as they deserved to.

She certainly captures the irony of her title. The film is absolutely worth seeing . . .
