8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Yun Jung Kim on June 6 2003
Format: DVD
This film could have been third class perverted semi-porn movie. But the director Steven Shainber did great job in turning a bit perverted material-sadism and masochism-into absolutely funny and cute love story. Although the movie deals with somewhat irregular sexual issues, it is never erotic or disgusting. The reason, I suppose, is truthfulness and purity of the characters.
Maggie Gyllenhaal(Lee) did stunning work in playing a very pure, yet unconventional, female secretary. Lee looks somewhat dumb and weak to her desire, but at least she is uncontaminated by the outside world and true to her feelings. The way she tries to seduce James Spader is quite adorable.
James Spader also proved that he is a great actor. Mr. Gray (Spader) is slightly deviated from the normal person, but still he is greatly attractive man. How he heals the wounds of Lee and how he resists her seduction induces laughter from the audiences.
This film is never typical and never normal, yet it shows the true feelings of the human beings. This film depicts physical attraction, yet it show what real love is.
I absolutely recommend this film to everybody and I guarantee that anyone who sees this film will like it.

Format: DVD
Sexuality has forever played a tremendous role in our storytelling. In recent years, those roles and themes have become more visible, controversial and erotic. Where censorship strives to dismiss controversy, "Secretary" embraces it and offers us an unforgetable tour of the taboo.
"Secretary" forces us to look outside of the box - and see through the eyes of Lee Holloway (Maggie Gyllenhaal). Lee is of a unique breed, who gets pleasure from pain and finds security out of being submissive. Lee returns home for her sister's wedding after having spent time in a mental patient facility. We are immediately find out she is a cutter and inflicts wounds of all sorts for a sense of relief. Determined to not spend all her time at home with her dysfunctional family, she gets a job working as a secretary in a law office for E. Edward Grey (James Spader). Grey is an abrasive anal-retentive man who apparently runs through secretaries every few months or so. We soon witness his growing infactuations with Lee and through his mood swings and psuedo-violent behaviors, a strange sort of romance develops between them. He begins to abuse her and as these habits become more severe, she looks for more ways to receive abuse. Lee must then balance her two seperate lives, living with her family/exploring a relationship with a childhood boyfriend and the taboo S&M relationship she carries with her employer. Both worlds,of course, interfere with each other, ultimately ending with a final confrontation and a surprise ending.
Maggie Gyllenhaal has proven herself to be a superb actress. Her character seems so real in all her actions - there is nothing campy about her subtle nature and her excitement's crescendos.

Format: Blu-ray
I don't know whether the disc I received was part of a defective batch but what I watched wasn't blu-ray... The picture was slightly fuzzy and there was a 'grainy haze' particularly noticeable at the beginning. I was blown away by the film though. I had avoided it based upon assumptions I made based on the cover (the bend over one). But it was nothing like I expected. The film gets 5/5.

Format: DVD
I saw this film not knowing anything about it, and that element of surprize helped entirely because if you're looking for a film that's about gritty hardcore s+m, this isn't it. But if you're looking for one with heart, humor, and beautiful-strangeness, then this is a wonderful movie to see. I loved the ending, it is beautiful and unforgettably visual. It's my favourite James Spader film to date, I think it fits him perfectly. And Maggie Gyllenhaal shows she is a talented, brave actress who's not afraid of taking an unusual role. The camera work is beautiful, suspenseful, dramatic, sensual... oh i can't say enough good things about this film, there is not another like it!

I loved this movie, its nice to see the original movies.
There are so many remakes today, in books and in movies, that
it just doesn't surprise us any more and we always have that feeling of
"deja vu". The Dominants name is "Grey" could it be the inspiration behind "Fifty Shades"?????

Before they make "Fifty Shades of Grey" into a movie and my guess is we will probably be desapointed, see this one.

Lee Holloway (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is a disturbed young woman given to self-mutilation , just out of a stay in a mental institution. She does a typing course and takes a job as a secretary to eccentric lawyer E. Edward Grey (James Spader). She finds his exacting demands to her liking, and blossoms in his employment. Thier mutual attraction is obvious. She even acquires a nice but slightly wet boyfriend. Then one night E. Edward Grey sees her flirting with her boyfriend in the launderette (American launderettes seemm to be much more glamorous than British ones) this sets off feelings of jealousy that leads to his fury at her spelling mistakes and the now-famous (and very sexy) spanking scene. Their relationship blossoms and becomes more and more kinky (there is a wonderful scene where he puts a saddle on her and a carrot in her mouth and you can see the expression of absolute relish on her face). But he is unable to cope with their growing intimacy and backs off, he starts treating her, as she remarks in disgust "just like a regular old secretary", even when, in desperation, she empties all her tipp-ex into the river. Nice but wet boyfriend wants to marry her, and it looks for a while as if she is going to, but it's really Mr. Grey that she wants, and she is determined to do everything she can to get him. This is an absolutely wonderful film. James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal both give marvellous performances, the film has wit and charm and humour, and is the only film I've ever seen that treats a kinky relationship with such sympathy. It has a wonderful ending too. Absolutely delightful.
