Sundance Festival--What???

In the second half of the 20th century there was a wholesale assault on what was viewed as "uptight Victorian mores." The birth control pill and easy access to abortion on demand spurred a coarse and vulgar lifestyle. The cause and the prevention of AIDS is ignored. Today a couple is just as likely to accounce their engagement well after baby makes three. Modern photography and film has leant itself to a genre well beyond erotica and well into the debasement of humanity.

This coarsening of society and cheapening of the human spirit has often led me to contemplate "Where on earth will we go from here?" The only unexplored frontier seemed to be bestiality, and I assumed it was only a matter of time until that appeared as the latest indiginity. Not suprised, then, to read that the Sundance Festival features such a film.
