The Slut

47th annual Chicago International Film Festival:

The CIFF catalogue describes lead character “Tamar” (played by the film’s writer/director Hagar Ben-Asher) as a woman with “a seemingly insatiable sexual appetite,” but there’s nothing remotely erotic about commercial transactions in which Tamar trades her physical favors for bicycle repairs and other practical conveniences. When a man finally appears on the scene who promises her more, Ben-Asher fails to give him a coherent backstory, so who cares?
