Preaching to the Perverted

Preaching to the Perverted

Stuart Urban (1997)

18 Certificate


Our Score
The first film to focus on the London fetish scene is an odd mix of traditional British sex comedy and serious message. Directed by Stuart Urban(Our Friends in the North), it starts well with atmospheric, if glamorised scenes in a fetish club run by sexy Guinevere Turner (Go Fish). Thereafter, it doesn't seem to know where to go, and its story of a government man seduced by the depravity he's investigating is very weak. The result will probably shock the easily shocked and disappoint sensation-seekers hoping for something stronger.


A civil servant is ordered by a puritanical MP to infiltrate a group of sadomasochists, and surprises himself by discovering a previously unsuspected liking for leather and spanking, a revelation that leads him to forge an unexpected relationship with a whip-wielding dominatrix. Erotic comedy, starring Christien Anholt, Guinevere Turner and Tom Bell.
