    Not for the sexually conservative. Not even for the sexually moderate liberal. It is, however, for the right crowd in the right mood, a very fine film.
  2. Not for everyone, but the open-minded should find it enlightening as well as entertaining.

    When Porn Theatre stays in the darkness, its minute observations about grindhouse culture are hypnotic in their accumulating detail.

    The detatched, fly-on-the-wall perspective, however, offers little insight into the strange gender game that's played out in the dark safety of the porn theater.
  5. Nolot elicits the last response expected from a movie that's almost entirely about sex: a yawn.

    In its own quiet if overly studied way, Porn Theatre mourns a time when, for better or worse, we could all get off together.

    It's a grueling 70-minute march toward the end credits.
