A bit too cheerful and superficial for some but even with this it is interesting to hear the performers talking naturally instead of acting, 30 April 2008
Author: bob the moo from United Kingdom

Having photographed artists, actors, musicians and politicians, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders' next project is to photograph stars of the American pornography industry both with clothes and without in the same pose. As he works with them to capture his images, they speak to the camera about their lives, their experiences and how they see the world they live within.

As with many people I imagine, this film jumped out of the listings at me because of the title but also the names of the people involved – many of whom I have of course seen, but few of them on UK television! I watched it out of curiosity and, in this regard it works as a short documentary. The actors and actresses are all pretty charming and open about the work they do – none of them are cheap and nasty nor are any of them too hung up on the "importance" of what they think they are doing (even if one talks a bit heavily about it as an "art"). Seeing them in their normal clothes and not heavy make-up and high-heels is a nice experience and this novelty value is enough to carry it.

Of course there is also nudity but it is all very posed and those looking for a cheap way to get off will be disappointed because Sanders' is not really interested in making them titillating. This plays in its favour as a documentary but it is a documentary about the shooting of these portraits and not about the porn industry and this is where many viewers will have an issue with it. As it is essentially a relaxed chat with the performers, there isn't any probing and no topics are covered lest they want to discuss it themselves. So what we get is a very cheerful depiction of the industry from those who have been made comparatively rich and successful as a result of what they do. What you won't get is any idea of pressures, downsides, tragedies and so on, because these are not discussed or even really mentioned.

A shame perhaps but also understandable since the film is not really about more than the celebrities being shown "out of character" as it were. In the end what this means is that the film is a sort of cheerful bit of access to porn stars for those with an intellectual interest in them beyond the nudity and sex. In this regard it doesn't totally work because it is all a bit superficial with no probing whatsoever, giving the performers an easy ride and the industry a chance for a bit of PR but it is still quite interesting if you can except it as such.
