Disappointing Documentary on Porn Stars
6 February 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Thinking XXX (2004)

** (out of 4)

Photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders directed this documentary taking a look at various porn stars who show up to be photographed with and without their clothes. Doing the shooting they discuss how they got into the business, their expectations for the future and countless other things. I must say that by the time this documentary was over I was extremely disappointed for a number of reasons but the biggest is that there should and could have been so much more done with it. Greenfield-Sanders released a book with these photos and this "documentary" really just seemed like a promotional piece for people to go out and buy the book. We start off hearing various stories about how these people got into the business and I think even those with the slightest bit of knowledge on porn will already know these stories. We learn that women get paid more than men and if a man really wants to make any cash it has to be in the gay porn industry. We learn about some abuse that goes on and we learn that ladies are often advised to take the show on the road as that's where the cash is. All of these stories have been dealt with in other documentaries so there's nothing new being told here. I'm guessing if you haven't seen other documentaries on the subject then perhaps you'll find this stuff interesting but by the thirty-minute mark I was growing more and more bored with the talk. Also, I do wonder how many actual porn fans are going to care about this book or the stories being told.
