An Odd Porn Drama
2 January 2005 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Mykonos Illusions" is a film that blends drama, exploitation, top-notch location photography and hardcore pornography to tell the relatively simple tale of a prostitute who, tired of her way of life, murders her pimp and flees to the home of two of her friends, a man and a woman, who are in many ways more shady and mysterious than the dead pimp. Along the way she meets a handsome Greek stud who seems intent on romancing her, but it soon becomes obvious (to the viewer, anyway) that, besides being quite the sexual acrobat, he has a hidden motive when it comes to his befriending our heroine. Much to the film's credit the ending is not overly predictable, even if it is a little hurried.

From the opening scene onward, "Mykonos Illusions" is filmed in a dream-like, stream-of-consciousness manner, so much so that some of the highly erotic and explicit footage can be a bit intoxicating to the viewer, even if some of these scenes are overlong. The overall glossiness of the production blunts the sharp edges of some of the sexual perversions on display throughout. The acting is also not bad for a porn film, especially by Patricia Donaldson in the lead. Viewers familiar with the much more sick and depraved "Island of Perversion", a.k.a. "Island of Death", will recognize some of the shooting locations, but Mykonos is so beautifully presented in both films it is hard to complain.

Of course, this film is not perfect, and does indeed run a little too long (99 minutes), but the end result was more satisfying than I had expected. So, if you are a discriminating adult and enjoy erotic films made with a little thought and style, you will probably enjoy "Mykonos Illusions".
