This Roman Polanski film centers on gender dynamics and the relationship between artist and muse. Of course, coloring the viewer's take on it is the director's history involving sex with a 13-year-old and his flight from justice. Polanski poses tantalizing notions but little subsurface analysis, eventually nose-diving into a Grand Guignol finale that finds one character lassoed to a giant phallus-shaped cactus.
