Venus in Furs (1967) **
10 January 2005 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A surreal dish of dream-like S&M kinky fantasy, of special interest to those fetishists who may appreciate bondage, milk baths, spankings or foot worship. It's a very bizarre web of delights centering around a humble shoe salesman who tends to obsess on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's book "Venus in Furs," often tuning out the real world and disappearing off into his own. He suddenly becomes involved with a strange woman who leads him to a very real getaway for like-minded perverts, where everyone lets anything and everything all hang out.

It's likely that late independent filmmaker Joe Marzano indulged his own personal erotic desires through his work here, and the results are actually quite mesmerizing at times in an Avant Garde kind of way, making appropriate use of stock music.
