Radley Metzger – The Opening of Misty Beethoven (1976)


Pornography meets Pygmalion. Misty, the hooker, meets the sexologist who thinks he can transform her from the nadir of passion into someone who inspires passion. While Misty is trained for her big test, seducing a homosexual artist, the relationship between the doctor and Misty remains unsettled.

While all of adult film auteur Radley Metzger’s soft and hardcore films bear his unmistakable stamp of elegance, only The Opening of Misty Beethoven broke the XXX mold and earned respected as a well made film which happened to contain actual sex. Thanks to a witty script, deft performances (yes, everyone here can act), striking sets, and continental locales, this is one for the time capsule.

Bud Townsend – Alice in Wonderland (1976)


Derek Armstrong, All Movie Guide wrote:

Bud Townsend’s X-rated version of Alice in Wonderland carries the gonzo ’70s spirit of a porn-chic film like Fritz the Cat — which naturally also makes it shoddily produced and essentially outr . A film that must have been influenced by the heavy drug use of its creators, this Alice should probably be watched under those conditions as well. Populated by bizarre characters (not all of whom spring from the source material) decked out in furry animal costumes, the film moves along the basic story line, but peppers it with flippant sexual episodes, meant to be humorous more than titillating. Parts of it aren’t even that unconventional, and the sex is not especially graphic, but the overarching weirdness of it all is the lasting impression. The scenes, such as they are, are linked together by hilarious porn-punned title cards and zany band music, which plants the film’s tongue even more firmly in its cheek. This is not a good movie by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s a prototypical addition to the guilty-pleasure library of films that are so bad they’re good. Plus, for film enthusiasts, it’s a telling window into the cinematic experimentation of an era marked by its freedom from norms. Continue reading

Walerian Borowczyk – Une collection particulière [Oberhausen-Cut] (1973)


The Oberhausen-Cut differs from the final version in a number of ways. There’s no spoken narration (and hence no subtitles), the photographs are much more overtly pornographic (in the shorter cut, cunningly-positioned fingers and thumbs are used to censor details, suggesting that Borowczyk planned alternative edits at the time of shooting), and there’s the notorious sequence featuring genuine bestiality – although an introductory card explains that to comply with German law, part of the image in this sequence had to be pixilated. Image quality is a fair bit poorer, but given the rarity of this cut that’s understandable. [MichaelB – criterionforum] Continue reading
