Sex and Lucía
Medem's film is a bleached-out beauty, hitting our most commanding human emotions – lust to love to grief to rage and back again – while only occasionally striking a wrong chord. – Kimberley Jones

"...Starring: Paz Vega, Tristán Ulloa, Najwa Nimri, Daniel Freire, Alena Anaya, Javier Cámara and Silvia Llanos. Basque filmmaker Julio Medem's small but devoted international following should find more of the same to love in his latest feature, Sex and Lucía: more melodrama, more byzantine plotting, more tragic love, more swooning visuals (Medem uses DV for the first time here, to mostly gorgeous effect)..."

Rodriguez Says "No" to Ab-Only Sex Ed
Austin Rep. Eddie Rodriguez wants to end ab-only sex ed in Texas
DAILY News  February 19, 2009, by Jordan Smith
"...Although roughly $1 billion in taxpayer dollars has been spent nationwide to teach teens that abstinence is the only perfect method of birth control, ab-only sex education has had a dismal track record of success. Indeed, reviews of ab-only programs across the country demonstrate that the programs don't actually keep teens from having sex, but that they do, as Advocates for Youth found, "show some negative impacts on youth's willingness to use contraception, including condoms, to prevent negative sexual health outcomes related to sexual intercourse."..."

Sex and Death 101
This serial-killer comedy, which screened during Fantastic Fest, is a self-indulgent, snarky, scattershot affair.

Film Review  April 11, 2008, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...So 15 years pass, and, save for a straight-to-DVD directorial debut, Happy Campers, in 2001 and a bit of anonymous script-doctoring (how bad, by the way, did those scripts have to be for their producers to call Waters in to doctor them?), all has been mercifully quiet from the Waters camp. If only it had remained that way, because the filmmaker’s return, Sex and Death 101, which screened during Fantastic Fest, is a self-indulgent, snarky, scattershot mess through and through, from its opening shots of suave fast-food restaurateur Roderick Blank (Baker) wandering the streets clad in a smirk and an open-collared dress shirt, bragging about his ability to drive women to distraction, to its climax, which features a humbled Blank’s run-in with the mysterious Death Nell (Ryder), a sexual vigilante stalking predatorial, misogynistic, and just plain boorish men with some sort of coma-inducing anti-fairy dust..."

"...Neither a straight comic nor a serious monologist, Bogosian is instead a hybrid of the two; he's like nothing we've ever experienced before, and that has the tendency to disturb and alienate some people. In Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll, Bogosian gives us ten different characters, from the jaded British rock star (which plays eerily like some of the bits from This Is Spinal Tap) to a stoned, paranoiac hippie, and from a jaded Long Island suburbanite to a pathetic, homeless can/bottle collector..."
