Quite possibly better known for a notorious Playboy magazine spread than for its own cinematic merits, The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With the Sea is one of the weirder artifacts of the wide-open American cinema of the 1970s. The Japanese setting of Yukio Mishima's novel is transplanted to the English seaside, where an adolescent boy has fallen in with a group of pint-sized fascists (they call each other by numbers, not names). The gang's idea of exploring "the center of reality" is vivisecting a cat, a ritual rendered in dreamlike, repellent detail. Meanwhile, the boy's mother (Sarah Miles) takes up with an ocean-wandering American seaman (Kris Kristofferson), their gauzy nude scenes providing voyeuristic titillation for the peeping son and audience alike (hence Playboy's interest). The combination of Lord of the Flies with the soft-core stuff makes a very awkward match, and the insistent touch of director Lewis John Carlino, who went on to make The Great Santini, does not help. Carlino's montage of shipboard pistons and pumps churning as the sailor arrives in town is a particularly unfortunate foreshadowing of the sexual gymnastics to come. Kristofferson, looking somewhat zonked as he often did in the '70s, is nevertheless effectively cast, and Miles, after Ryan's Daughter and Lady Caroline Lamb, practically had a patent on the sexed-up English (or Irish) rose in movies. Their efforts can't disguise the silliness of the execution. Still, those kids are truly scary. --Robert Horton

Jackie Burrough's performance as erotic adventurer Maryse Holder won the the Canadian "Oscar" for Best Actress, while the film itself was nominated for Best Motion Picture. This candid adaptation of Give Sorrow Words, a collection of posthumously published letters by Holder, tell the tale of a murdered New York teacher, a sort of Henry Miller, whose passion for younger men led her to Mexico. Holder's hedonism is acted out in the barrios and on the beaches, as she goes from one amorous rollercoaster adventure to another, primed with masculine sexual bravado. A Winter Tan is often harrowingly frank, but Burrough's portrayal of the complex Holder and the liberating and redemptive power of her sexual desire makes seeing the film both invigorating and moving. 1988, Color, Letterbox, Not Rated (adult themes, language), Approximate Running Time 90 Minutes.
This 1987 Canadian offering based on a true story seeks to offend and to provoke its audience as it dissects the sordid last days of a middle-aged feminist bent on self-destruction. Writer-director Jackie Burroughs plays Marsie Holder, a woman wasting away in Mexico and engaging in sexual trysts with the men she encounters. Bouts of alcoholism and illness shape her days and anonymous sexual encounters frame her nights. Through it all she analyzes her place in the world and pontificates on the role of women through her voluminous correspondence, even as she wastes away in the Acapulco sun and slides downward into an eventually fatal abyss. Shot in a harsh verité style, the film is unapologetic in its assessment of the promiscuous and reckless author, while still showcasing her wry and caustic take on the battle of the sexes. A controversial offering at the Toronto Film Festival, A Winter Tan is both a challenging polemic and an unblinking character study. --Robert Lane
