Melih Gülgen – Tatli Tatli AKA Sweet Sweet (1975)

Sweet Sweet (Tatli Tatli 1975)
Mine Mutlu only made ‘erotic’ films in the 3 year period between 1974-1976. She made 5 such ‘erotic’ films in 1974, 9 in 1975, and 1 in 1976). In 1976, she withdrew entirely from ‘erotic’ film-making even though she was ‘at the top of her game’ — and she tried to re-invent herself on stage, as a performing singer. Continue reading

Jean Rollin – Phantasmes AKA The Seduction Of Amy (1975)


IMDB wrote:
Jean Rollin was one of a select group of European filmmakers (including Alain Robbe-Grillet, Jose Larraz, Walerian Borowzyx,and–some would say–Jesus Franco) who used the horror/sexploitation genre as a means to make arty and/or personal low-budget films. But by the mid 1970’s all the sexploitation directors like Rollin had to compete with the burgeoning hardcore porn industry, and he at least decided that if he couldn’t beat them he was going to join them. Rollin was, of course, far more talented than your average porno hack, but it is virtually impossible to make a good hardcore porn movie given the extreme limitations of the genre–i.e. a very low budget, a very short shooting schedule, a complete lack of professional acting talent, and the need to include one long sex scene after another, which inevitably does in any attempt at story, pace, or character development. Naturally, this is not nearly as good as Rollin’s more legitimate horror/exploitation work, but it is certainly better than your average hardcore sex flick. Continue reading

John Derek – Love You (1980)


Author: DriesVermeulenDV8 ( from Brugge, Belgium

When is a porn film not a porn film ? In this case when it’s directed by late “real world” celebrity John Derek, a man better known for his marriages to some of the world’s most glamorous women (Ursula Andress, Linda Evans and Bo Derek) than for his efforts both in front (ADVENTURES OF HAJJI BABA) and behind (BOLERO) the cameras. LOVE YOU is one of those rare films that straddles the no man’s land between pornography and traditional cinema and considerably more erotic than other attempts to do so like Curt McDowell’s strangely perverse – or should that be the other way round ? – THUNDERCRACK or Candida Royalle’s downbeat sci fi sex saga REVELATIONS. Of course, not everyone agrees on this assessment. Many a porn critic, including the late and usually great Jim Holliday, has taken the movie to task for lacking the type of sex scenes they assume genre fans want. Continue reading

Fernando Di Leo – Avere Vent’anni aka To Be Twenty (1978)


Avere vent’anni (To Be Twenty) – (the title refers to the famous phrase at the beginning of Paul Nizan’s book, Aden Arabia: I was twenty years old. I will never allow anyone to say that these are the best years of my life.), was shot by Fernando di Leo in 1978. He also wrote the script which dates back to some years earlier and came from the desire to portray new female characters who had established a revolutionary psychology, and attitudes in society after 1968.

The intermediaries for this story are two young travelers, Tina and Lia – played by Lilli Carati and Gloria Guida, both very popular actresses at that time, who leave the Italian provinces and go to Rome to join a “community” and are under the illusion of being able to live in complete freedom, especially sexual freedom, without restraints or limits.

Ernst Hofbauer – Schulmädchen-Report 4. Teil – Was Eltern oft verzweifeln lässt AKA Schoolgirl Report Part 4: What Drives Parents to Despair (1972)


This movie is a fake documentary on the sexual habits of teenagers/college age youth. The deep, newscaster-like voice of the narrator leads us through a series of vignettes, with different actors. The first deals with a girl who wants to trade sex for grades, which seems sort of cliche. In another episode, a black girl and her white boyfriend deal with their classmates’ racism. There are a few other mini-plots, all with the requisite nudity and implied sex. The episodes focus on one or two characters who undergo a sort of 1 dimensional coming-of-age process. The fantastic, kitschy soundtrack is by Gert Wilden and his orchestra. A lot of his “Schulmadchen” hits seem to come from this movie. Also known as ‘Campus Swingers’. The title translates as ‘what drives parents to despair’. I never knew Germans could be so hip! Continue reading

Sidney Knight – The Debauchers (1972)


Lengthy IMDB Review

Its subject matter being the making of an “experimental movie”, The Debauchers is an experiment itself: taking the tried-and-true (and cheap) Warhol/Morrissey invention of confrontational improvised dialog (SEE: any Ondine performance) and making it work in a nasty, hardcore domination opus. The film was difficult to watch, and frankly distasteful, but a la the in-your-face Italian movies of Alberto Cavallone, worth the effort. Terry Levene distributed the film back in the day, and it is one of his most unusual titles.

Filmmaker Sidney Knight has made several interesting works but I wasn’t prepared for the downright cruelty here. One reason is that I was misled by the AFI Catalog 1961-1970’s inclusion of this title as circa 1970; it was made later, during the hardcore era. Credits are mainly crude pseudonyms, though Knight is listed on-screen. Continue reading
