An alternative history of British cinema!
19 November 2001 | by (Bristol, England) – See all my reviews

This is a brilliantly funny history of British sex films, based on the book by David McGillivray, and presented in droll, tongue-in-cheek fashion by Angus Deayton. McGillivray himself appears in the documentary and his withering comments about X-rated films are at odds with the stars and directors of the movies, who are also interviewed, and celebrate their dubious contributions to cinema history.

Highlights include lusty sex film starlets Sue Longhurst (the female star of 'Confessions of a Window Cleaner') and saucy Anna Bergman recalling stripping off in the Seventies; Robin Askwith interviewed at Shepperton Studios and veteran nudie-film director George Harrison Marks remembering how he passed off nakedness as 'healthy living' to the British censor, just to get his movies shown on the big screen.

It's terrific to see the old faces back again and the archive clips of long unseen saucy classics like 'Eves on Skis', 'Eskimo Nell' and 'Naked as Nature Intended' are cherishable. This is good clean fun in the all-together!
