Not bad at all;not deserving the user rating it has. It's not really porn!
If this 2000 film, produced by Lars v. Trier is porn, then a good portion of your "mainstream" films need to be reclassified. I only found this film in your base, after a thorough search. For the first time while voting for many a sex themed and gay themed film, I had to opt for "more titles" for "those wishing to see them." This revealed a porn section I did not even know existed, and is very interesting, definitely confirming your site once again as the best in its class.
However, firstly, this title is as "porn" as many movies seen in any alternative film festival in the past 7 or 8 years. Secondly, what's with the voting? When I first opened this title a week ago, to see your site's "view", to compare with the very positive view in the local conservative newspapers (which nevertheless revere anything with the v. Trier name), and the glossy attractive entry in the Mix Brazil catalog, I was shocked to see that all 18 votes were 1!
Now, how can this happen? I thought this site had some filtering system to avoid one or two people having 18 or 20 votes certified votes calculated. That two (even one) user can have 20 accounts, I don't doubt that. But I thought there was a control (by computer address or cookies) for this type of abuse.
Also, what sicko would vote a "1" 18 times for a so-called porno flick, and then not even submit a comment using one of his aliases? Has he no desire to justify it since he's spent his time voting 18 times for the same film. Well, if this is the case, this guy is sick anyhow. Go figure how his mind works.
The other (remote) hypothesis is that maybe there were 18 very dissatisfied users since this film is not a porn flick at all, again it is not even in the top 5 or 6 most graphic sex scenes in recent "serious" and "straight" festivals I've attended. And, it is GAY, possibly causing a backlash by straight porn addicts.
Anyway, DON'T be misled. I will not give this film a slanted review; I'll just state facts. This, though they may not be read after the initial 18 or 20 "one" ratings cause a potential viewer to rapidly close the page, especially after having to pass the "porn hurdle" and ask the site to upgrade your preferences to those of a "porn" viewer.
The film is a video, but shown theatrically at many festivals. Here alone, close to a dozen times, at a total of 3 large cities. It consists of 6 scenes, depicting 6 worlds, 6 desires. Lars v. Trier's prestigious production company presents a new world of male gods, or men as gods. These new male gods seek to redefine the ancient "sex gods" found in Greek mythology, Roman orgies, more recent bondage and domination legends, and so on.
SEE FOR YOURSELF WHAT YOU THINK OF IT! You're unlikely to find this title in a PORN SHOP, though you ARE likely to see it at a film festival with rigorous selection processes, as I happened to find it.
