It's refreshing to see an intellectual titan deliver such a down to earth explanation of the core of their beliefs.

More and more we seem to be moving into a society where political leaders, pundits, and anyone else that draws mass media attention, will speak only in the most guarded and ultimately meaningless way.

I don't agree with some of what Paglia has to say but I salute her for having the guts to speak her mind in the current bog of mass media sameness.

This brilliant lady does not suffer fools lightly. The passion of Paglia and her thoughts is infectious. Doc is all to brief unfortunately.

If you had any doubt that Camille Paglia is a certifiable lunatic with a brilliant mind, prepare to leave it behind. A quirky short that shows you why she had her 15 minutes of academic fame as a feminist-against-feminism provocateuse.

Here is a really sped up (she does speak quickly, and is a little hyper), one-sided flow of really complex (ever relevant), highly controversial statements and issues that Paglia put forth over two decades ago. A talk on ideas that neither feminists nor the rest of society can even skim on much less come to terms with today -- and therefore spotlights the fact that conversation really needs to happen on these topics. Yet it doesn't. Bravo (to this not current doc) for confronting the issues, and shame on us for not being brave enough to even discuss the F word much less delve into what she pours out for us in this film. It seems that in today's media, transgender politics (not the same as women's issues) is as close as we can get to the complexities of sexuality, gender identity, etc. People cringe at feminism, and they don't get it that it's not about agreeing, or labelling -- it's about having the damn conversation.

Camille Paglia is, in every way, fascinating.

This woman is nuts.

She always has an interesting point of view

boring

Truly a brilliant mind, and not a bad film either. Great editing.

If you're starved for a little intelligentsia, then Dr. Paglia is the antidote. Watch once, then call her in the morning.

excellent capture of a force of nature. rare for a film to make one feel so nervous, with absolutely nothing to feel nervous about. loved this interview film.

She is quite outspoken and somewhat provocative. I can see why she alienates even those who are somewhat leftwing in their views!
