Fourplay (2001)

I don’t ordinarily like to think about sex and R.E.M. at the same time, but it’s worth mentioning that Kyle Henry’s Fourplay—a compilation of four short films focused on unusual sexual situations—is produced by Michael Stipe. While frank, the tone of the films differentiate themselves from what might be considered pornography by being more interested in the emotional aspects of intimacy among an unusual cast of characters. Each film takes place in a different city, and dogs, homosexuals, and quadriplegics all get representation. It works best when it’s funny, as in Tampa, which takes place in a public restroom. Bold in its subject matter and sentimental at its core, it’s a promising departure for a filmmaker who usually sticks to documentaries.
