Storyline

Nick Broomfield and a documentary crew visit Pandora's Box, an up-scale house of bondage on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue, where clients pay $175 an hour to be subservient to mistresses. Mistresses talk about their craft; a few clients, usually masked, are interviewed as well. Then, the camera watches sessions organized around fetishes: rubber, wrestling, corporal punishment, masochism, and infantilism. Mistress Raven, the owner of Pandora's Box, explains that pain need not be part of the subservient experience: it is, at its root, a transfer of power. After their session has ended, clients talk about how drained, relaxed, relieved, and at peace they are. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

hidden agenda?
5 June 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This documentary of Nick Broomfield's, focusing on the S/M scene, and in particular, on a place in New York called Pandora's Box where ladies with names like Delilah and Raven 'entertain' their clients, is one-sided from the start, starting with negative preconceptions which it tries to convey to its audience.

However, this weakness aside, it is pretty uncompromising when focusing on the mistresses and their clients (whether male or female). I didn't get the sense it was poking fun, but it makes no attempt to understand or explore the scene either. So it remains fairly interesting but ultimately unengaging, mainly because of Broomfield's reluctance to go in there with an open mind and let the viewers of this documentary decide for themselves.
