the roots of adult cinema
12 August 2017 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

1907-a time so long ago it is almost impossible for us to imagine that sex was even a thing back then. Since said thought is obviously highly ignorant, it is good that filmmakers like Johann Schwarzer existed to reassure us that f*cking has always existed, no matter how much society seems to have changed. "Baden verboten" is a revolutionary work of erotic cinema, and one of the most notable films by porn pioneer Schwarzer, a unique, important cinematic figure that often tried to claim his films were "art", which, technically, they are, but only in the same way that erotica/porn can be considered art, which implies a loose use of the term. "Base verboten" is only like one minute long so it's worth watching as a curio of early cinema, especially since it's so pornographic and it's entire purpose is to show full frontal nudity, something very surprising at the beginning of the 20th century!
