Many people who have gotten to know this one and who love movies or are casual film buffs when they talk about this film hate it to death.
I understand that the film is not a masterpiece and that each person is free to say what they want about any film, but to get to the point of hating it?
Film 15 of the "Scavenger Hunt 2" Challenge! Task 30 : A film you WOULDN'T watch with your mother! I choose this as it was suppose to be a film I WOULDN'T watch with my mother!
The summary led me to believe this would be a bloody affair but as it turned out it was pretty tame as far as horror goes! It was actually more of a psychological melodrama than anything else!
To be honest I didn't really care for it so not only wouldn't I watch it with dear old mom, I wouldn't watch it with anyone! So you think you're a cinephile, eh?
Well, then pop quiz, hotshot. What universally reviled film came out to little fanfare, terrible critical reviews, even worse audience scores, turned the film industry against itself and just so happened to change the way Hollywood contracts are negotiated?
Hint: it's this one. Boxing Helena. I can't believe you didn't get that Well whatever. It's this.
And it's true. Back in a little film studio called Main Line pictures was financing the screenwriting and directorial debut of Jennifer Chambers-Lynch.
Who you might know best as the real life version of the tapdancing lady in the radiator from Eraserhead. Or, to put it easier, David Lynch's daughter.
In retrospect, the vibe on display here is what I think I wanted from Eyes Wide Shut. This is certainly as flawed as EWS and just as stupidly 90's , if not more so, but in ways I ultimately prefer.
People seem awfuly keen to dismiss this as some sort of pale impression of the director's father's style, and while that's certainly something Lynch seems to fall back on to direct her script out of a jam peep that final reel , I don't think people making that claim have seen nearly enough shitty Lynch riffs to truly know one when they see one.
This is touched with black humor and surreality, yes, but in very different and perhaps even stranger ways. Review by laird 4. Take a shot every time the main character says He-lay-nah.
Helena wakes up in the hospital, with all her limbs intact. Producer Philippe Caland initially came up with the idea, but wanted a woman to write it, and so approached Lynch after she gave a poetry reading.
In writing Lynch was inspired by some elements from her own childhood, stating to Vice that her being born with club feet , and her grandmother owning a Venus De Milo replica, influenced her insight into the characters,  explaining:.
It always struck me the way people looked at the Venus. And it really made a huge impact on me. I thought I was broken and that maybe someday someone would find me beautiful.
And therefore in a dream recreate this obsessive thing where we take from one another until we are the size and shape that we think the other person should be for us.
Madonna was originally supposed to play the starring role, but shortly before filming was to begin in January she dropped out, causing the production on the film to be halted.
After the production failed to make the changes to Basinger's satisfaction she also quit the picture. Legal battles involving both stars then ensued.
Meanwhile, Sherilyn Fenn, who had previously worked with Lynch's father on Twin Peaks , was chosen for the title role of Helena in December The score heard during the scene where Helena showers in a fountain, while a party crowd watches, was originally composed by Graeme Revell and based on the "Love Theme" used sparsely elsewhere in the film, with vocals by Bobbi Page.
At the producers' request, "The Fountain Song", written and performed by Wendy Levy, replaced Revell's score in the DVD and subsequent releases.
Boxing Helena premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and was theatrically released by Orion Classics in the United States on September 3, , Entertainment Film Distributors in the United Kingdom on June 18, , and Republic Pictures in other international territories.
The film received negative reviews from critics upon release and was widely considered to be of poor quality,  despite garnering praise at Sundance.

Quotes Russell : [ watching Helena bathe in the fountain ] Who is she? Doctor Nick Cavanaugh : [ mesmerized ] She's Alternate Versions "Boxing Helena" was originally rated "NC" by the MPAA.
The DVD contains 1 minute of sexually explicit footage that had to be cut for the "R" rating. The cut footage in the UNRATED DVD version is as follows: When Nick fantasizes about Helena and Ray having sex we see a shot of most of Helena's butt in her thong underwear; Helena removing Ray's pants where we see part of his bare butt; Ray kissing up Helena's body where we see one of her breasts; and finally one last shot that shows Helena's breasts very briefly.
During Nick's sex scene with the fantasy woman while Helena watches, extra footage includes a scene with Nick behind the woman, then a shot of him thrusting into her, followed by several views of the woman's bare breasts.
User Reviews Um Was this review helpful to you? It was a role so perverse even Kim Basinger who had honey dribbled on her body in 9. And as Basinger told an L.
Her agent even believed audiences would hurl tomatoes at the screen. And now the Basinger trial, which concluded on March 25, has given Helena enduring notoriety.
