Bali's 'Kuta Cowboys' Focus of Women's Sex Tourism Film

Body|Beauty|Culture In 2006 Charlotte Rampling introduced female sex tourism to American art audience audiences in the movie “Heading South”.  A rave review by Stephen Holden in The New York Times called the movie “one of the most truthful examinations ever filmed of desire, age and youth.’’  We agree.
