MiStReSs SuPeRiOr


Directed by John David Philip
To get a picture of this
you may compare the filmmaker with trash-director John Waters. You may also think of "Eating Raoul".

"Mistress Superior" was produced for only 4000 Dollars. The visual style is just a cheap video-look. The amateur actors try to be funny in each moment by overacting, which isn't funny at all.
The intention of this film is to be a satire. A look on Mistresses and religious groups that doesn't take anything for serious. Ridiculizing too much and taking the whole scenario not serious enough.
Depends on your personal view, taste and sense of humor.


It takes time to get into the specific rhythm of this chaotic film. In the middle part there is too much cult about Nr13. Going on the nerves, only rescued when finally Mistress Superior takes control of stage and television. As a comedy it's a failure.


Still there's much to like here:
Dominatrix and sub in daily life, at home and in places of the city, most of the time dressed in daily attire. It's interesting to explore femdom with impressions that are more realistic than stuff of glamour.

You may also generally like this way of independent-moviemaking with dialogues and topics that are expressing the filmmakers ironic view of society.

You may like the spirit of this film.

And Elektra Harris and Alexandra Youngberg will get your sympathy.

Thank you for reviewing our film!

We agree with most of what you say. However, "Mistress Superior" actually does not have a "cheap video look" when it is projected properly.

We were surprised at the low quality of the screening at the Traum festival. Not only was the high-definition resolution lost, but the aspect ratio was narrower than normal, so part of the image was lost. We suspect this is because it is in the North American NTSC format rather than PAL.

"Mistress Superior" was projected in a Vancouver cinema earlier this year and there it had a high quality, film-like resolution. If you look at the trailer on mistresssuperior.com, you can see that the actual quality is better.

Thanks again for your review!

Best regards,
S. Garrett and J.D. Philip
