Consensus: Heavy on the sex and violence, Baise Moi is not so much a daring as a sloppy piece of work.

Too ideologically earnest for the porn crowd and too hard-core for serious audiences.

An adolescent little poseur of a movie.

John Zebrowski

Only Baise-moi's pedagogy is well defined and strident.

This is a film that deals with the ideas of losing one's humanity, our views on sex and violence, and the obliteration of the soul. Nadine and Manu have… More
