Art or Porn?
6 July 2012 | by (The Flip Side...) – See all my reviews

When is art considered porn? When is porn considered art? Interesting questions that haven't changed since before Maplethorp's controversial photos were released. This film is a good example of that fine line between art and porn. But, which is it? That is for you to decide.

"Story of Joanna" is a dark vision into obsession, voyeurism and dominance. Terri Hall is Joanna, a lovely woman who seeks love, but enters a dark world of sexual dominance under the spell of Jamie Gills, a man obsessed... Gillis has a dark plan for Joanna, a plan that will change their lives forever... and the ending will leave you in utter shock! This film comes close to being an art film, with solid directing and good performances from Gillis and Hall... A recommended film!
