Storyline

Documentary about the way sex was and is deliberately used in cinema to influence and manipulate human behaviour and development. This documentary uses real examples including the decline of Mae West's career; the introduction of a ratings system; and enforced creative controls, eventually leading to a billion dollar sub-culture of pornography and art-house movies. Written by Mardi Sandford

Not Bad
17 November 2003 | by iwatcheverythingSee all my reviews

For a documentory this was not a bad film. I liked the history it showed from then to now. The older movies were actually pretty bad at times. It kind of drug out though was the only problem I had. It also seemed to like one or two movies more than others (Unfaithful). All in all it was an okay watch if you are bored on a week night.
