XX was a unique and very intriguing pic. An anthology crafted by savvy females exclusively, viewers are afforded a couple of unorthodox performances, and some unexpected twists. As a whole, the film is a very entertaining anthology. It may not rival the greats that history has given us, but you won’t lose looking into this one!
XX is available on Blu-ray on May 23, 2017. It’s actually already live and waiting for you to stream it from one of the many VOD outlets, if you’re not interested in actually collecting the disc, that is!
