a good document of a controversial subject.
11 May 2001 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

this documentary has humor, a bit of poignancy, and seemingly, the desire to turn the viewer on to it's flip-side of the film industry. to call this a GREAT film, would be to give REAL documentaries a kick in the pants. to totally disparage it, would be to give this otherwise fine work a grave disservice. It WORKS because it leaves the viewer with an impression of the industry. I felt the shame and humiliation these individuals must have felt, sitting there, watching it. especially of interest is the early portion of the piece, when it explores PORN'S early days, and it is during this that the "film" generates much of it humor. All in all, it gave me much to think about. there are interviews to spare, with those both in and out of the industry. what they have to say is very revealing, to those who know little of this subject. it is not as if this came as a TRUE revelation to me, but it was nice to know that not everybody involved in adult films are utter trash. though rated X, the film shows no less than the average NC-17 film, although when people engage in sex in this, it is real, not faked. all in all, what will most likely go down in history as the best sex documentary ever made.
