Underneath the covers.

Short Films: “All These Men That I've Done” - 8 mins 52s

Already hamstrung by sexual assault allegations against Chris Noth, And Just Like That, the sequel to Sex And The City, lacks the bite of HBO's groundbreaking series. Fortunately, this spunky effort from Lorraine Nolan and Mark Daly (aka Scéal) has enough frankness, frissons, and fuckery to satisfy disappointed fans.

'All These Men That I've Done' (the first and best riff on a Killers song title DAVID has seen this year) stars four women with multifaceted outlooks on sex. Divided into chapters entitled Love, Virginity, Sex, and The One, the film eschews cliché for ownership.

Whether it's a woman who extols the virtues of no strings sex ("Sometimes I cry for them when they leave, but I never wish they'd stay") or the cafe patron who arouses a man through the medium of cake, the result is playful, confessional, and tactile. Plenty to sink one's teeth into here.
