A good movie

First of all, who are we kidding? The main reason either of us would watch this flick is above all because of its infamous reputation surrounded by controversy. Since I have always been interested in experimental movies, especially the ones pushing the envelop, I definitely wanted to check it out and I thought it was pretty good but it is definitely an acquired taste. Basically, it is an Art house... read more

" Notes: Since I have always been interested in experimental movies, especially the ones pushing the envelop, I definitely wanted to check it out and I thought it was pretty good but it is definitely an acquired taste. Basically, it is an Art house picture with some non-simulated sex-scenes and, apparently, the very first non-pornographic film to feature scenes of fellatio and even an erect penis. Knowing this fact, most people would drop the whole thing and I don’t think it is something you s"

Movie Reviews (451-500) (50 movies items)

" Guide book in how to make an art movie with unsimulated sex and blowjobs that critics will love. A shocking final scene and a few "bad taste" moments leaves a lasting impact but the film is to be honest very repetitive after a while since the entire movie is about a woman fucking a man to death. Intense "acting" though which is not so strange as they really are fucking on screen. "
