Trivia

In the first scene, which plays out before the opening credits, there is an over the shoulder video screen shown with a logo for a fictional company called "Wildfire Video," which includes flames as part of its' logo. "Wildfire Video" also appears several more times, in a variety of media, throughout the movie. This is a reference to the actual company which produced Pornography: A Thriller (2009), Triple Fire Productions, which also uses flames as a part of its logo. See more »

Goofs

When Harry calls Michael's cell phone, to tell him about the busted old video tape that he restored for Michael, the call is disconnected, and Michael clearly hears a fast busy or "phone off the hook" signal. "Phone off the hook" signals are not heard on cell phones when the other party disconnects, the line just goes silent and the call is ended. See more »

Two thumbs up!
17 May 2010 | by weeziewraySee all my reviews

This is an excellent, enticing and thought-provoking movie that doesn't infantilize and spoon-feed the audience like most of the assembly-line crap that is now coming out of the film industry. This movie gets right at the lizard brain, without apologies, and challenges the viewer--gay or heterosexual, male or female--to look at and tolerate the darker, naked aspects of the human condition. It breaks my heart and frustrates me to no end that that this film will likely not reach as broad an audience and receive the level of attention and acclaim it deserves--as it undoubtedly would if the porn industry depicted were heterosexual--because too many members of our society are still too fearful to explore different realms and find the underlying commonalities.
