  Intimacy Movie Review, DVD Release - Filmcritic.com
The uncompromising nudity bared throughout Petrice Chereau’s Intimacy has already garnered much notoriety, but it’s in the naked faces of fearless actors Mark Rylance (Angels and Insects) and Kerry Fox (Welcome To Sarajevo) that the tender ache of emotional resonance is discovered.
Intimacy does manage to stand out from lesser portraits of “human interconnectedness” and Pinter-esque rummages through psychological dirty drawers (okay, kill me).
Despite being as restless as a fly during the hyperactive restaurant scenes (all the better to blend in with a hustling crowd of gabby trendsetters), you’d be hard pressed to find a single uninteresting image.

  Intimacy Movie Review at Hollywood Video
When used to describe bedmates Jay (Globe Theatre artistic director Mark Rylance) and Claire (Shallow Grave's Kerry Fox), the very word "intimacy" is ironic in that, despite much energetic coupling, the most striking aspect about the pair is their distance from one another.
The sex in Intimacy is explicit; what isn't so clear is what Claire gets out of these liaisons — most of the time she merely seems uncomfortable.
We are privy to moments of true intimacy between Claire and Andy across the dinner table and in an angry, revealing cab ride across London, and we see her in private moments with her class and with her friend Betty (Marianne Faithful), and these moments leave the viewer wanting to know more about Claire.

  American Film and Intimacy
Movies, in that viewing them requires a nominal effort — leaving the house and buying a ticket or going to the rental store, are not subject to the same challenges, but different ones of their own.
The voyeurs are, in these cases, involved in the movies themselves: Murnau is dispassionately fascinated with the make-believe images he sees before him on film as the only important chain of events, Norma Desmond passionately fascinated with the fictional version of herself that she envisions on film as her whole reality.
The ability of the movies to create perfect romantic circumstances, to obliterate distracting outside details, is chased even by those who know it is an illusion because they help to produce it — and, if their aim is properly directed towards furthering a relationship, the effects are healthy and desirable.

 INTIMACY/ **1/2
And I was intrigued by such things as the contrast between the intimacy of Rylance and Fox's sex scenes and the cold, distanced, stalker-like quality of the moments where he follows her.
The movie loses its way in its second half, becoming a patchy exploration of Fox's acting career and her relationship with her husband.
Aside from this subplot's parallels to the break-up of Rylance's marriage, which are explored fairly early on, this is all useless; it doesn't amount to much as a portrayal of Fox's psyche, and it strays from the point of the movie, which is Rylance.

 Intimacy
This bleak reflection on the meaning of human intimacy and romantic relationships recalls both "Last Tango in Paris," although here the central relationship touches more than the people engaged in it and "An Affair of Love," although that film's melancholy is replaced with something deeper and darker here.
"Intimacy" would have benefited from some trimming to focus more on its central three characters, but those three's naked expressions of love, lust and longing are vitally raw.
"Intimacy" is a tale of the loneliness of two people who seek to replace needed emotional involvement with physical lust, but, without love, sex is a shallow substitute.

 "Friday Night" - Salon
The movie is built on a classic fantasy, one that both women and men indulge in: the idea of having anonymous sex with a stranger.
The two of them sit in traffic, barely talking: "Friday Night" is virtually a silent movie, save for the sound collage of the city, a jumble of far-off beeping horns and muted voices, the urban equivalent of the chirp of crickets.
Her gorgeous and potent 1999 "Beau Travail" was a reading of Herman Melville's "Billy Budd" rendered in the cuneiform of male bodies: Their shapes and silences became the script, speaking of feelings so intense and raw that they need to be repressed for the purpose of mere living.

Later into this movie, the gore level escalates but there is a perfunctory feel to this, as if the movie is just clinically removing the dead weight characters one by one.
But this movie lacks the intimacy of the original movie, an intimacy afforded by a small cast whose personalities are then fleshed out better, the better for me to invest my emotions in them and care for their safety.

 village voice > film > Intimacy; Waking Life; Focus by J. Hoberman
The movie begins, like Last Tango in Paris, with a pair of strangers preparing to couple in some untenanted no-man's-land: "Was this agreed?" he asks, upon opening the door mid-afternoon to find her.
(The movie follows this general pattern as well; the characters are not nearly as engaging outside of their affair.) She's glum and a bit dowdy, he's sour and grungy—a bartender in a trendy Soho watering hole.
Intimacy, which takes the title of Hanif Kureishi's 1999 novel and much of its premise from an earlier Kureishi story, "Nightlight," is Chéreau's first English-language film (as Last Tango was Bertolucci's), and one might consider the filmmaker nearly as bold as his stars.

Their sessions are fevered, animalistic -- a desperate grasp for catharsis -- and when the lovers are spent they merely lie next to each other, not knowing what to say.
In "Intimacy," the English-language debut of French filmmaker Patrice Chereau ("Queen Margot"), Jay and Claire are exquisitely played by Mark Rylance ("Angels and Insects") and Kerry Fox ("Angel at My Table").
Like Bertolucci's "Last Tango in Paris," which in many ways is this film's forerunner, "Intimacy" tells the story of two people wishing to escape themselves and the burden of their memories through the purge of sex.

The film, which is brave but not perceptive, stars Mark Rylance as Jay, a former musician, a divorced husband and father, who now works as a barman and lives in a barely furnished hovel.
And there are scenes at an amateur acting workshop Claire teaches, where the line between acting and reality is the real subject; it has not occurred to her, in the workshop or in life, that the point of acting is not to reproduce reality but to improve upon it.
''Intimacy'' is a raw, wounding, powerfully acted film, and you cannot look away from it.

 8 Stages of Intimacy: Sexual Intimacy
Sexual intimacy is about touch (which can be non-sexual like with friends and children) and in the dating and mating game it's part of the courtship and consummation.
Sexual intimacy involves the full range of sensual perception including touch, kiss, looks, expressions of endearment, (the exchanging of gifts and favors for events and just because), communication, comments and of course, intercourse and orgasm.
The key to sexual intimacy is sexual liberation, a state that takes time, patience and tremendous trust to reach.
