29f7c043f76a2bde437fd0d52a185152 Tinto Brass   LUomo Che Guarda AKA The Voyeur (1994)

Description: “When his wife Silvia (Polish model Katarina Vasilissa) leaves him, Dodo (Francesco Casale), a professor of French literature, finds himself alienated from those around him; becoming a passive viewer of life lead to the fullest by those around him including his bedridden father (Brass regular Franco Branciaroli) who has a scantily-clad nurse to attend to him. Dodo’s agonizing over his wife’s contempt for him and the identify of the mysterious lover who has usurped him is countered with lighter vignettes (mostly lighter, though one moment has one of Brass’ starlets showing her infibulation scars which feels exploitative though we must commend the actress for not feeling ashamed considering how psychologically and physically damaging this cultural practice can be) in which Dodo winds up the voyeur instead of a participant which insure a positive reaction from Dodo to his wife’s faithlessness in the Brass tradition.

Director Eduardo Cemano is one of the visionaries of adult film. A former commercial artist he segued into pornographic features in 1971, just as New York City (and 42nd Street) were about to be flooded by a wave of “one-day wonders”, cheap sex films from the West Coast shot in a day, edited together and distributed to makeshift cinemas and sex shops. Cemano was fascinated by the possibilities of including explicit sexual imagery into a narrative feature – or, more specifically, introducing plot and character into an explicit sex film – and when approached by nudist-movie legend Doris Wishman to make some original one-day wonders in New York to compete with the material sent over from California, Cemano eagerly directed two of the first porno feature films to emerge from New York: Millie’s Homecoming (aka Lady Zazu’s Daughter) and The Weirdos and the Oddballs (aka Zora Knows Best). From improvised screwball comedy shot for $1000 in one day to luxuriant, thematically complex adult drama, Cemano’s films played to enthusiastic audiences throughout New York, making him the most inventive, dynamic and complex adult filmmaker on the East Coast during the early 1970s. Working with some of the finest talents in the industry, Cemano swore only one thing: in his pornography, there would be no suggestion of rape, force, coercion or the demeaning objectification of women. To him, pornography was a visionary new genre, free from moral restraint and offering women a true and empowering liberation from Patriarchal constraint! (more…)

Definitly not Mulot’s best, but still watchable

This movie is interesting in more than one aspect; Mulot’s camera work and storyline are still personnal and, I must say, very interesting… This time around we follow the adventures of a lovable creature who poses in “erotic” mags. She is stalked by some kind of maniac killing people around her. (more…)

logoimdbb Joseph W. Sarno   Young Playthings (1972)

Classic Swedish erotica from American director Joe Sarno

Although this was directed by American (semi-)cult director Joe Sarno, it is also 1970′s vintage softcore Swedish erotic, which means that the attitude toward sex is a little more laid-back and wholesome than in American sex films of that era, and the girls are less skanky (and a lot less artificial than the kind of girls that are in these kind of films today). The most familiar and impressive of the actresses involved is Christine Lindberg, who was later in the notorious “Thriller-A Cruel Picture”. But Lindberg and the other actresses are either speaking in sync sound or have dubbed their own voices, so that there thick Swedish accents kind of hamper their performances. The initial plot is pure softcore porn contrivance–Lindberg’s friend is having a secret affair with her boyfriend and the two of them plot to turn the arrangement into an menage a trois with Lindberg. The boyfriend goes out of town and the friend convinces Lindberg to stay in an apartment with her where she picks up random guys in an effort to seduce Lindberg into three-way. (more…)

logoimdbb Paul Norman   Edward Penishands (1991)

review from imdb:
Good Parody Porn

*** This comment may contain spoilers ***

No prizes for guessing that Edward Penishands parodies the iconic Tim Burton film, Edward Scissorhands. The plot’s wafer-thin but does spoof some scenes from the Tim Burton film to good effect. The dinner table/eating scene is very funny. The facial expressions of Sikki Nixx (as Penishands) are spot-on and spoof the character well.

In between the sex scenes with Penishands are sex scenes with other characters. These scenes seem to be there to pad the film out to give it a longer running time. All the sex scenes in the film are good but some seem to go on for too long. Another disappointing factor of the film is it was shot on video and unfortunately some shots appear too bright or washed-out. The cinematography is of a high standard featuring varied camera angles throughout. The film appears to be filmed in a studio and some sets appear spartan (e.g. the living room). This detracts from the realism as it is noticeable. (more…)

Saturn: The erotic beginnings of Austrian cinematography
Michael Achenbach and Paolo Caneppele

Asked about early Austrian cinema most film historians will mention Von
Stufe zu Stufe or Der Müller und sein Kind, movies filmed between 1908
and 1911. Not many people know that before them, in 1907, a Viennese
studio called Saturn started mass production of feature films.
Unfortunately, because of the Saturn-films’ peculiar topics, up until now
certain reluctance combined with a large amount of bashfulness caused a
distortion in the historical reconstruction of Austrian filmography. The
chronology of the real events was falsified and important sources of the
birth of Austrian cinematography were kept as a secret. Filmarchiv
Austria decided to set the record straight and fill the gap by publishing a
book and a videocassette. The book addresses movie-specialists, while
the cassette will be suitable for a general audience interested in the his-
tory of Austrian movie production. (more…)
