Product Description

Another dazzling suburban phantasm from writer-director Todd Haynes, Dottie Gets Spanked (made post-Poison and pre-Safe) is a stylized, bittersweet nod to his childhood fascination with I Love Lucy. Deep in the heart of pre-hippie 1960s America, young artistically-inclined Steven Gale is obsessed with Dottie Frank, wacky star of the eponymous hit sitcom The Dottie Show. While his mother gently encourages the boy's fixation, his father grows increasingly frustrated by his son's apparently "sissified" interests. This provocative, heartfelt mini-feature anticipates Haynes' Oscar-nominated Far From Heaven with its excavation of placid mid-century surfaces and deeply-buried emotions.

- New audio commentary by Todd Haynes
- Rare 1989 short film He Was Once: an inventive parody of 1960s kiddie claymation show Davey and Goliath, co-starring and co-produced by Haynes
- Behind-the-scenes production photos
- Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Good--But You are Out of Luck if You are Looking for Something Kinky July 2 2014
By gail - Published on

It was a good movie, but some people might be disappointed if they were expecting something a bit more kinky. Let me state this right off the bat: this isn't an erotic movie. You do see someone get spanked, but it is in a playacting sort of way that isn't at all arousing.

However, even though I was hoping to see something more stimulating, this was actually a very good movie. It wasn't what I was hoping to see, but it was good anyway. Due to my interests, I interpreted it a little more differently. Apparently some people think the boy has gender identity problems. Though the boy may have been considered a "sissy", I considered him becoming aware of sexual needs. He idolizes Dottie--whose show is like a "I Love Lucy"--where every episode her Ricky spanks her for her shenanigans. He seems to fantasize about being disciplined by a strong male figure, but just his luck he has parents that don't believe in spanking.

3.0 out of 5 stars Coming of a very young age Sept. 7 2013
By wiredweird - Published on
Format: DVD
The world of Leave It to Beaver never really existed, not even in the 1960s. This goes just a bit below that cleaned-up view of the world. It examines some of the complexities that we struggle with today, but that simply couldn't be spoken in those years. Specifically, a boy, age six or seven, starts to discover that his interests don't line up with the male-oriented role he's expected to grow into. Kids' gender identity forms very early, long before adult physical differences start to emerge, and this brief movie explores that part of the boy's life.

Unfortunately, the topic isn't one that interests me all that much. I'm sure that someone who's struggled with the issues, either first-hand or as a parent, would see this in a very different way. But for me, there's just not a lot to hold interest.
