    Bennett also co-wrote the script, based loosely on her own experiences, and is the best thing about the film. A physical cross between Holly Hunter and Christine Lahti, she's quite convincing as she tries to figure out what has gone wrong in her personal life - and how she can fix it before it is too late.

    What could have been the most boring, unwatchable crawl-up-your-own-asshole picture instead becomes a gripping, searing portrait of a lost soul trying to find her way through life. Stephanie Bennett is amazing.
  3. 50
    Bennett is also self-indulgent, giving us few clues as to what's behind this destructively hedonist behavior; instead we get shortcut insights as she and the men confess into the camera.
  4. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey
    Has a quasi-verite, improvisational feel that appears truthful. But it doesn't lend much sympathy, or depth, to characters who never seem worth knowing.
  5. 40
    A shaky, uncertain film that nevertheless touches a few raw nerves.
  6. What is meant to be brave comes off as gimmicky and immature.
  7. Reviewed by: Nicole Arthur
    The most surprising thing about Some Body is that any film so lewd could be so thoroughly uninteresting.
