Bliss | Chicago Reader

Bliss

A man discovers that his wife's idiosyncratic behavior is more destructive than he'd realized before they were married, and he apprentices himself to a therapist, believing that he can learn to help his wife change for the better and save their relationship. This 1996 allegory dramatizes the stages in a sexual-spiritual quest that you may not be disposed to take seriously, but writer-director Lance Young's intentions are sincere, bold, and fascinating. While the movie may be a bit too literal in determining the source of the social and psychological ills it pinpoints, the insights are broadly relevant. Chances are you won't want to identify with any of the characters, but if you can you'll be richly rewarded. With Craig Sheffer, Sheryl Lee, and Terence Stamp.
