Spike Lee has been erratic at best, misogynist occasionally but "Girl
6" hits a new low. Theresa Randle is supposed to be in search of her
identity but how she intends to find it through the world of phone sex is
beyond me. Characters enter this R rated mess and leave with no explanation.
A romance between Randle and Peter Berg as a man who just needs someone
to talk to seems to offer a ray of hope to some sort of plot, but that remains
as unsatisfying as, well, phone sex. And if anyone can explain the falling
phones, which scenes are fantasy and which are real (especially towards
the end) and what the deal is with the director's interviews. I mean, I
discussed this with other film critics, thinking that maybe I was really
missing something symbolic. No one could come up with a better explanation
than Spike and Oliver Stone must be sharing the same bong.
