Buy My Book - the movie
14 January 2013 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Photographer takes on a vanity project to document AVN-awards and whole porn subculture.

As a photo hobbyist, I was initially drawn by the idea of the film. However it soon became clear that this film has no message or point, other than to advertise the directors book. Michael Grecco's work is usually pretty solid but here his images lack that special something. He shoots his subjects almost like in porn shoots and the results are what you would expect. Also his methods and way he handles his subjects, make him seem like amateurish a-hole - at least as a filmmaker.

Semi-interesting movie for photo enthusiasts, others should not bother.
