Whether males and even females want to admit or not, there is a constant ambition by many for the X rated industry. It started with a deep throat (and most probably way before that) all the way to the present vivid realities that pornography is here to stay; accentuated by the accessibility of porn via the internet. Director Michael Grecco bares the facts on the present porn industry within his photographical experience at the AVN Awards & Convention in the documentary "Naked Ambition: an R Rated Look at an X Rated Industry". The AVN Awards is the equivalence of the Academy Awards to the porn industry. The AVN Awards & Convention is hosted each year in Las Vegas. At the AVN Convention, everything from vibrators to porn female stars who make you vibrate are displayed in its bare necessity form. Grecco takes the artistic photographical route in this porn documentary, and photographs several porn stars, entrepreneurs, and many other "movers, shakers, and fakers" of the adult industry. I commend Grecco for his efforts but artistic beauty and "the ooooo & aaaaaaas of sex on film" don't really go hand in hand, it's more right to hand. However, I did enjoy Grecco's interviews with several female porn stars including: Sunny Lane, Joanna Angel, and Janine Lindemulder (the other ex of Jesse James with no acting skills; I am kidding Sandra B., you rock!) The porn stars in their interviews reminded me of the surrogate-family seeking characters of Paul Thomas Anderson's classic movie "Boogie Nights". The strength of the documentary lies within its study of the porn industry, but I wanted to shoot at the screen when it focused on the analysis of the photo stills of its subjects. Not to sound like a certified pervert, but there is a place for art and a place for putang, and porn is more in the latter than in the former. It will not be an orgasmic movie experience (unless you take a peek at its porn stars in their own features), but "Naked Ambition: an R Rated Look at an X Rated Industry" is worth the look. *** Average
