Movie Info

Sex, politics and American culture are mixed into a combustible combination in Now & Later. Angela (Shari Solanis) is an illegal Latina immigrant living in Los Angeles who stumbles across Bill (James Wortham), a disgraced banker on the run. She takes him in. Through passionate sex, soul-searching conversations ranging from politics to philosophy, and other worldly pleasures, Angela introduces Bill to another worldview. As their affair heats up, the course of Bill's life begins to take an abrupt and unexpected turn. The film was conceived by the director in reaction to American's penchant for violence in our culture and our puritanical censoring of anything involving sex. Familiar with philosopher Wilhelm Reich's notion that a sexually repressed society turns into a violent one, Diaz makes an unabashedly sexual yet cerebral film that challenges the perception that sex in media is harmful. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Now & Later

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

A hollow concoction of sex, politics and endless chatter that's just a few camera angles short of hard-core porn.

February 24, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Exudes an amiably accessible vibe that softens the edges of its freewheeling explicitness.

February 18, 2011 | Rating: 3/5

Sex or politics? Politics or sex? Director-writer Philippe Diaz can't decide what "Now & Later" should be about. So he mixes the two -- and comes up with a murky mess.

February 18, 2011 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

An oddball hybrid of porn film and message movie.

February 17, 2011 | Full Review…

For all of its subtext-free critique of American hypocrisy, Now & Later's sex is strictly all-American.

February 15, 2011 | Full Review…

Shrilly over-written and artlessly directed by Philippe Diaz, and with the same presumptuousness he brought to the documentary The End of Povery?
