Profane – DVD Review

Aptly title, Profane is a movie full of contempt and submission. It’s also full of nudity. An interestingly dirty and twisted film, that has been called “extraordinary” by some reviewers, though not by this one. It’s an interested movie that crosses many lines, but I found it more disturbing than anything.

Don’t assume porn when you see the nudity. This is not porn. It is an artistic, independent film, and award winning, at that. Profane won Best Experimental Feature from the Minneapolis Underground Film Festival, as well as other awards.

The basis of the movie is the story of a Muslim woman/dominatrix going through a spiritual crisis. Ecstasy, enlightenment, humor, torture, and trippy imagery fill out this underground film.
