Storyline

Largely improvised with only two people privy to the "secret" - that a fictional movie was being made using the players, crew, and settings of the adult movie industry as its background. Outside of the Lead Actors, the rest of the cast is made of people working in the adult industry - playing themselves and shot on the soil of Pornoland itself. This is as real as fiction gets! Ethan's a Canadian Television Director trying to make it in Hollywood. Having a hard time finding work, he takes a job in the porn industry to make a little money. He ends up more interested in the adult world than anybody thought he would - especially his fiancée. Is it really just for the money? What's happening to his "mainstream" career? What does directing porn really mean to him? How far is he going to go into this world and will he ever leave? What toll could this take on his relationship and upcoming wedding? Get an unprecedented look inside the adult industry in a way that it has never been portrayed ... Written by WALKING SHADOWS

Mockumentary with not much "mock" about it.
20 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We randomly picked this movie to watch last night with absolutely no expectations. When the movie ended, my husband and I stared at the screen and said "that was really interesting." This is not a movie intended for audiences to love it. Its intended to make audiences think. Thing about the separation of porn and film, the trials of trying to grow a career in Hollywood and the sacrifices that have to be made, and the impact on a relationship when one persons ambition is put above anything else. As a mockumentary, it wasn't played for comedy or drama like others, instead it feels more like the filmmakers wanted to make a documentary with this same message, but wanted to have more control of the scenes and conversations than a documentary would afford them. Like a real documentary, when the movie ended, I had the same "weight" of thoughts going on for several hours afterward.

I have to admit, we had no idea this was a "mock"-umentary when we started watching it, and, in many ways, I think that made it a bit more interesting. Still, about half way through, my gut told me something was up as the camera always happened to be in the right place at the right time and the fights and discussions were a bit too simplistic. Real life is more complicated and nuanced. However, the main character of Ethan was well played and very realistic.

I wouldn't necessarily recommend this movie whole-heartedly. In the end, I think I would say I really liked it, but was it a great movie? no.
