Quotes

Poll taker: Do you feel the emergence of bourgeois and often corrupt administration in the recently liberated self-governing states of Africa can be explained by re-examining the circumstances of foreign domination which precipitated the process of colonial disentanglement?
Pamela Mann: I certainly do.
Poll taker: Thank you!

The Usual Suspects of pornography.
25 October 1999 | by ultraluvSee all my reviews

When adult films of the '70's made their way back into the mainstream of popular culture, Radley Metzger most definitely holds his regard as the finest adult filmmaker ever. My first encounter with Metzger's work was "The Opening of Misty Beethoven" which, as a boy looking through a friend's parents' videos, was far more than I'd expected. Years later, I was happy to view "The Private Afternoons of Pamela Mann," which, aside from the pornographic content, I found totally engrossing. I admit being completely shocked by the surprise ending!

Maybe it's the recent admiration of independent film that has made the acting in Radley's movies seem so much better, but his camera work is unsurpassed in his field. Beautifully shot, well acted smut, which borders on proving itself as "erotica!" Yeah for Radley Metzger!
