DETAILED SYNOPSIS:
Naughty, or rather ‘Naughty- A Report on Pornography and Erotica Through The Ages’, to give the film its full title and M.O. holds more documentary worth, its part 360 degree snapshot of the early 70′s British sex industry and part re-enactments of the goings on of their Victorian predecessors while the first twenty minutes or so is a report on the world’s first pornographic film festival which had been held in Amsterdam at the end of 1970. Organized through the underground newspaper Suck, The Wet Dream Festival, which showcased four days worth of pornographic films from around the globe, was the brainchild of one Jim Haynes, a leading figure in the British underground scene of the 1960s, who viewed the production and exhibition of pornography as a revolutionary act to challenge the status quo. “I’m just interested in freedom, extreme libertarianism, the right for anyone to see, eat and do whatever they want” claims Jim, who comes across as a likeable mixture of intellectual and old fashion mischief maker. Long’s camera was there to capture it all, from tame clips from the films themselves, interviews with audience members (“I‘ve never seen so many genital organs and vaginas in all my life” claims one) brief glimpses of guests like Germaine Greer and Al Goldstein plus the priceless sight of Jim’s hippy entourage taking over the town’s local cinema which had been playing Hell in the Pacific, but where for one night only Lee Marvin and Toshiro Mifune have to step aside for films featuring as one of Jim’s entourage puts it “people fucking, being sucked, women with dogs, flagellation, the juxtaposition of this will freak people out”.

thgc Jesus Franco   Sie tötete in Ekstase aka She Killed in Ecstasy (1971)

Jesus Franco has made so many movies that it’s almost inevitable that he will occasionally get one right. This is one of those movies where his bizarro and repetitive plots, his pan-and-zoom-happy cinematography and his obtrusive jazz score all manage to gel for a pretty dumb but thoroughly enjoyable movie. It helps, of course, that this was one of only four films he made with the incredible Soledad Miranda before her untimely death.

There’s no denying that Franco’s regular collaborator (and wife), Lina Romay, was a very sexy actress in her prime and has become something of a legend in her own right, but she is a pale shadow of Soledad Miranda, who was if anything even more beautiful and had a class and talent that none of Franco’s later actresses could hope to achieve.

thgc José Bénazéraf   Le Bordel AKA The Infamous House of Madame X (1974)

A big brothel for the rich bourgeoisie at the end of the 19° century in Paris – the time of the Franco-Prussian war. We see the doctor, the priest, the bourgeois, an anarchist, a black mass, much lesbian love between two very gigglish young girls in uniforms, classy soubrettes, voyeuristic guys, a nice black girl. Meanwhile there is much political talk.
One of the great works of Bénazéraf: nice period setting, good atmosphere; an abundace of different scenes which all show part of the work in a high class bordello on the outskirts of Paris around 1870; exquisite photography, nice dresses, good looking classy women, good acting; should be seen on big screen. It has some actresses who worked before with Bénazéraf. The movie looks very expensive and is a joyous erotic period evocation with some hard core scenes. These might have been inserted later by Bénazéraf himself as they are well intergrated into the story and set in the same luxurious environment. (more…)

The main story is about Shen’s character, an unemployed suicidal man who has been calling a suicide helpline. A parallel story is of a television chef who specializes in exotic cooking, who plies his overweight, sexually frustrated wife with the foods he cooks on television. In other words, that is the extent of their relationship now. There is excessive loneliness in this film. Kang Sheng’s character also grows marijuana in his apartment and this helps garner the attention of hostess girls who are working in a bar below his apartment. To a one, the ladies are all young and sexy. The wife of the chef, it turns out, works at the suicide helpline, so there is the connection between her and Kang Sheng’s character. Like many of Ming Liang’s films, the city of Taipei is a co-star, ultra modern, detached and noisy. There are scenes which are darkly comic, thought provoking and sad (more…)

Jean Rollin’s third feature film Le Frisson des Vampires, alternately known as Thrill of the Vampires, Shiver of the Vampires and Sex and the Vampire, is one of the key works in his impressive filmography.

One punk with a sexual attraction for his sister is turned in by the girl after a degrading sex scene. The newcomers shake down bars and bistros in their efforts to become part of the violent and brutal criminal underworld. ~ Dan Pavlides, All Movie Guide

Quote:

While vacationing in Greece with her second husband, Louis Silverman (although she wasn’t all that keen in taking his surname in marriage, director DORIS WISHMAN was more than happy to add her hubby’s handle to her ever-expanding list of pseudonyms), Wishman stumbled upon a small-time film company in desperate need of funds, ultimately returning home with the rights to The Hot Month of August and Passion Fever – purloining both productions for less than $4000. En route back to New York, Doris absentmindedly left her briefcase containing both August and Fever’s translated scripts on a train, forcing her to rewrite the narratives from scratch while overdubbing the original dialogue (a prevalent practice throughout her entire career).

Clarke Fountain, allmovie.com wrote:
Rather than being just another exploitation documentary, designed to re-use footage from unprofitable porn films, this feature explores the social circumstances which gave rise to the legend of the “snuff” film, and the conditions present (in 1976) in the porn film industry in general. Sex performers and all the others involved in making such films are interviewed about their work and why they do it. The filmmaker, himself well-known for making “soft”-porn films, was so incensed by the snuff-film trend that he made this exposé of the hard-core pornography industry. The Evolution of Snuff includes a forward by Roman Polanski, who was experiencing legal difficulties in the U.S. at the time. (more…)
