Dated peek at the men behind Screw Magazine
4 August 2011 | by lor_ (New York, New York)

Styled as a video magazine before home video (VHS and Betamax) was invented, SOS has Screw Magazine honchos Al Goldstein and Jim Buckley on a revealing ego trip, fronting tasteless XXX skits, with several big porn stars of the period along for the ride. It survives merely as a time capsule.

Film spotlights the main failing of Screw, a periodical I never read back in the day for the simple reason that it was not erotic (its misleading status) but rather a compendium of low-humor, pandering to the “Adult” industry and of course a soap box for Goldstein. His “Midnight Blue” series had the same problem, ultimately self-destructing as a nightly rant where Al would swear and threaten his lawyer, an ex-wife or two, or anyone else who dared to cross his path and look at him sideways. I was on good terms with Al, having interviewed him a couple of times and even toured his offices, so thankfully I never made it into his cross hairs. (more…)

Quote:
Having seen virtually all of Jose Benazeraf’s mainly excellent softcore 1960s movies and a good selection (over a dozen) of his later XXX offerings I was unprepared for this off-the-wall 1974 transitional film. This is one case where the dreaded “auteur’s explanation” that accompanies so many wretched DVDs would be helpful.
I will offer my own pet theory, certainly wrong but convincing enough for me. I contend that Jose found the chance to travel to Italy and film an Italian co-production to be an irresistible opportunity to lampoon the then-current trend of Italian cinema to make sexy left-wing film tracts. Not like the Godard tracts of the ’60s, but many wonderful and hokey movies that I love, like Ugo Tognazzi fighting the class struggle against Romy Schneider in LA CALIFFA or any of the Bellocchio efforts of the time.

thgc Arduino Sacco    La sfida erotica (1986)

This is a very rare relic from 80’s italian XXX, and it is also a masterpiece in inept cinematography and deceit… The movie features two italian mature pornstars: veteran Marina Frajese (aka Marina Lotar) and relatively newcomer Paola Senatore. Both of them were discovered by cerebrated sleaze and hardcore guru Joe D’Amato, and this movie is about an erotic (well… porno!) challenge between them, two womed deeply in love with the same man. But, wait! I’m not really sure if they ever meet each other, but in this movie there is not a single scene where they are together in the same shot. Even beloved Ed Wood couldn’t have done it better…. in fact “La Sfida Erotica” was done by editing and joining leftovers from a couple of different flicks, bound together by offscreen narration. It culminates in an hilarious orgy sequence where everyone involved -like in a fashion defile’- presents himself walking on a stage filled with smoke and backlights caressing his crotch. Here the two female contenders finally meets but…. they are masked! Lots of out of focus shots, bad lighting, bad acting, senseless mumbling, unrelated scene editing and unerotic sex action.
Interesting 80’s soundtrack music that varies from sleazy pop to hammond funk, to creepy, dark atmospheres (during an orgy scene a dog can be heard howling!).
Don’t be misleaded by the high rate on IMDB (8,0)…. it comes from a mere 5 users who probably had something to do with the film…! (more…)

Quote:
Here’s Nick still milking the once popular Danish porn imports of the late 1960’s and early 70’s. I would say the ad campaign probably fooled quite a few people. However there is nothing remotely “Scandinavian” about this one.
This is the last of my Nick Millard films and it also marks the end of this phase of Millard’s career. Pornographer Nick Millard (aka Nick Phillips) copied Andy Warhol’s Factory system; just as the pop artist had minions cranking out works in his Manhattan studio, Millard financed other filmmakers to crank out porn for him. Since Nick never put any credits on his films, it is difficult to sort out which ones were outsourced. This one is supposedly directed by “Alan Sinclair” but it has Millard’s stamp all over it and I can find no info that Sinclair is a real person. (more…)

IMDb Review:
Three couples are staying at a hotel and all are having sexual issues. One day a professional porn star (Lina Romay) shows up and teaches everyone how to do it. This hardcore film is once again from Spanish director Jess Franco and this one here is certainly the best of the three I’ve seen. Again, I’m really not sure how to rate this stuff but Romay, when not sexually servicing everyone, has a lot of nice, comedic moments, which is why I rank this the highest. It’s also nice seeing Susan Hemmingway, although it took me a while to get use to seeing her in hardcore scenes. Again, this normally isn’t my type of thing but my goal is to see every Franco film.

SYNOPSIS

Debbie, a lily-white virgin, is abducted by a gang of black men being paid by whites to start a race riot. After violating her in a Cadillac, the men take her to a country cabin. Duke, the leader, takes possession of her but then loses her in a poker game. The violence escalates to a full throttled climax. Filled with stark, brutal imagery from start to finish, Hot Summer In The City is a haunting film you won’t soon forget. The characters are so believable that it seems like a documentary. Lisa Baker’s sexy screen presence is mute and ghostlike.

Quentin Tarantino has called this film, “The Best Porno Ever”. (more…)
