Storyline

This film features an extensive interview with Italian movie maven, the late Aristide Massacessi, better known as Joe D'Amato. Through interview clips, and clips from his catalogue of over 100 films, "Joe D'Amato Totally Uncut" traces the director's journey from title designer, to director of photography, and finally to director of some of Italian cinema's most notorious films. D'Amato discusses his feelings about his life, his work, his relationships with such stars as Laura Gemser, and his distaste for hardcore adult cinema. Written by Jonathan Ruskin <JonRuskin@aol.com>

Good documentary, recommended but with a few reservations
10 March 2010 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

The version I saw of this documentary was definitely NOT cut. In fact, I had quite the opposite problem with it. I thought they spent too much time focusing on D'Amato's hardcore porn career, which even he is dismissive of, and aside from his interestingly misbegotten early 80's attempts to marry hardcore porn and gut-munching zombie horror (i.e. "Porno Holocaust"), is simply not very interesting.

They cover the "Black Emanuelle" films pretty well, and I guess since this was focused primarily on his sex films, it's forgivable they don't go too much into his horror work. But except for one montage, they skipped over the period in the 80's when he was still trying (quite valiantly, given what was happening in the Italian film industry at the time) to make classy, relatively big-budget softcore erotica like "The Alcove" and "11 Days, 11 Nights". And maybe I'm just weird, but perhaps the most interesting films they do cover (that I haven't already seen anyway)are his early 70's "decamerotici" and the goofy sex comedy he did with Renzo Montagnini as a horny gynecologist.

As far as the many beautiful actresses he worked with over the years, they discuss Laura Gemser(of course) and African-American transsexual Ajita Wilson (who's interesting at least). But the only other ones they really mention are Sirpa Lane (ehhh), Marina Hedman (a talentless hardcore porn star without even the good looks of modern-day talentless hardcore porn stars), and Anna Begman (Ingemar Bergman's daughter, who D'Amato did one very bad film with and then tried to sign her name to it as the DIRECTOR). I would have liked to hear what D'Amato had to say about Ely Galeani, Paola Senatore, Lili Carati, Annie Belle, Monica Zanchi, and Nieves Navarro--all of whom D'Amato made several films with.

D'Amato does make for a lively interview subject and it's hard to believe he died only a few years after this.
