A Good Production of "Boca do Lixo" of São Paulo
1 July 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After producing a successful underground snuff movie, were the lead actress is raped and killed, the Brazilian Miguel returns to São Paulo pretending to be the American director Michael Tracey (Hugo Bidet) and convinces his partner Bob Channing (Fernando Reski) to cast and hire a crew to produce another movie. With attractive salaries, they hire the broken cinema technician Edson Lima (Carlos Vereza) and his assistant Juarez (Canarinho). Together, they cast the stripper and hooker Lia de Souza (Rossana Guessa); the decadent and former famous actress Tatty Ibanez (Nadir Fernandes); the aspirant actress Glória Verdi; the candidate of Miss Contest, the Miss São Paulo Maria Rosa; and an actor interned in a mental institution, Sérgio Bandeira. The group believes that they are going to secretly shoot porn, and moves to the small town of Limeira. When Bob falls in love for Lia, he tries to convince Michael to forget the snuff and avoid her death. But Michael is reluctant and does not want to give up his project.

"Snuff, Vítimas do Prazer" is a surprisingly good production of the "Boca do Lixo" ("Trash Mouth") of São Paulo, which was specialized in erotic and porn movies in Brazil. The story has some criticism, such as the terrible financial situation of people related to cinema business in Brazil, showing a bankrupted technician, or a famous actress needing to make porn to pay their bills; the foreigners bringing snuff genre to be shot in Brazil; Juarez inviting his black friend to be the lead actor, but saying that he is not sure whether the producers would accept a black man as lead actor. The story alternates erotic, with drama, crime and even some horror, inclusive ending in a Friday, the 13th of August. Rossana Guessa is extremely sexy with her naked body and gorgeous face and watching her is worthwhile. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Snuff, Vítimas do Prazer" ("Snuff, Victims of Pleasure")

Note: On 14 November 2011, I saw this film again.
