You can't say it's not interesting. . .

This is kind of an interesting film in that it started out as a hardcore porno movie, but then director Carter Stevens went back and took out of all of the (hardcore) sex and added a lot more story. (There is still a hardcore cut of this out there, but I imagine it is a quite different movie). The results are somewhere between a 40's film noir/detective flick and one of the 70's John Holmes/"Johnny Wadd" detective-theme hardcore porn efforts brilliantly parodied in "Boogie Nights". The quality of this is, of course, much closer to the latter than the former (not surprisingly, given it's original hardcore origins). It's porno-movie cheap and the actors are all erstwhile porn stars. But all porn actors are not created equal--Wade Nichols and Robert Kerman ("Cannibal Holocaust") may never have won any Academy Awards, but they were far more talented than total non-actors like John Holmes.

As for the "punk rock", this contains performances by minor acts like the Squirrels and the Stilettos (the latter had been Debbie Harry's first band). It's much better than the usual music found in 70's porn movies, but don't expect to see (or hear) any of the more talented punk acts of the era like the Ramones, Television, or the Dead Boys. Hilariously, this was once marketed as a semi-sequel to "Saturday Night Fever"! (Punk, disco--what's the difference?). Punk rock is really about as peripheral to this story as it was in that infamous TV episode of "Quincy M.E." set in a punk rock club.

Still, I kinda liked this. Inept as it is, it has a kind of labor-of-love quality you find when porn talent tries to go legit. There's not much sex, but the girls in this all look pretty skanky anyway. Don't rush out and buy this, but it's worth a rental.
