Did You Know?

Trivia:
Several times during the movie is mentioned Electra did a lesbian sex scene where she makes love with herself. When people ask her about how this was done, she eludes the question. Later it is revealed Elektra has a twin sister, Celia and they both appear on screen at the same time when Elektra visits Celia in jail and they are identical (apart from hair, make-up and clothes, obviously) so at this point the viewer can deduct the aforementioned sex scene was played by Elektra and her sister.

In the final credits, Celia is credited as played by Taryn Gugino, leading the viewer to believe Carla Gugino has a twin sister but this is false. Celia was really played by Carla Gugino herself and she doesn't have any twin sister.See more »

Almodovar in America, 24 June 2011
Author: Brent Trafton from Long Beach, CA

I would bet that Sebastian Gutierrez, the writer and director of "Elektra Luxx" is a big fan of the acclaimed Spanish director Pedro Almodovar. "Elektra Luxx" is kind of like an American version of a Almodvar film. It is full of funny, quirky and sexy characters.

I don't typically like most mainstream comedies but I really liked this film so that might say more about me than it does about this film. I was laughing out loud throughout the whole thing. The humor doesn't seemed forced like mainstream comedy. It is the characters that make it funny.

There is not much of a plot but I enjoyed the time I spent with these characters. My only complaint is that I had to watch it on DVD because the BlueRay is not available yet. Hopefully it comes out soon.

Make sure to watch to the ends of the credits. There is a trailer for the final Elekta Luxx film at the end that you will not want to miss.

"Elektra Luxx" is not a movie for everyone. In fact, it is not a movie for most people. If you like eclectic, quirky, sexy films, you should give it a try. You might be pleasantly surprised.
