Storyline

The love, or at least the lust, has gone out of the marriage between college professor Heather (Marie Leroux) and Kyle (Martin Hewitt) since he gave up his career as a respected art critic to try his hand at performance art. In her eyes, he's lost his ambition, and she just doesn't respect him anymore. When she leaves, hoping to force him to think things over, he calls a hooker, beguiling Stacey (Amy Rochelle), who uses all the feminine wiles and lingerie she can muster to make him her slave. Meanwhile, poor young, blonde, busty, and beautiful Irene (Sara Suzanne Brown) arrives to look over Kyle's house, which he has put up for sale to underwrite his art career. She comes back for an affair because her plumbing-obsessed husband Bill (Mark T. Paladini) doesn't provide the romance and sensuality she needs as a woman. Kyle falls in love with Stacey, who doesn't love him, while Irene falls in love with Kyle, who doesn't love her. Written by lament

Performance Artist Risks Everything
23 November 2011 | by makeyourmark-830-226434See all my reviews

Having long been a fan of low-budget, independent movies, I was pleasantly surprised by Secret Games II. Martin Hewitt as performance artist Kyle Lake shows a side of his acting that we haven't really seen before, and we are witness to an interesting psychological tug-of-war between his art, erotic call girls, and the hard, revealing truths behind their dangerous "games." As he sinks deeper into this world, it is Kyle's art (videotapes) that becomes the vehicle for the answers he seeks -- done ingeniously through dialogue directly to the audience. Add Amy Rochelle, Sara Suzanne Brown, and Marie Leroux, and the erotic quotient goes up considerably. But perhaps most exciting aspect of the movie is the reappearance of the writer Russell La Valle, whose skills I first noticed on his film Sins of the Night. Once again, La Valle shows a talent that stands above the rest in this genre. After "Sins" I would often come across other, non-entertainment writings of his and always came away with the feeling that here is a writer who deserves assignments that are commensurate with his talent. I can only hope that someone else takes notice of his capabilities and hires him to tackle movie projects of larger scope and importance. Until then, I will continue to champion these low-budget cable features whose entertainment value has been undervalued and under-appreciated for too long.
