Aroused is a feature documentary film capturing the making of a Fine Art photographic book shot by Deborah Anderson, featuring 16 of the Worlds most successful Adult film Stars. As questions are asked in this intimate film, the girls reveal more than just their naked skin.Written by
While the fashion photographer who made the film works to glamorize her subjects, she doesn't mince their words in editing, and the closeups on the actresses expressions are actually devastating. I was looking for a film that would change my far too positive view of porn to be more balanced, and seeing that even the top porn stars aren't that happy about their work says a lot.
The actresses start sounding conflicted and upset as they go deeper in the questioning. They basically all qualify any positive thing they say about porn with a contradiction. They're all dealing with one harsh reality or another. Posing in front of the camera they seem really out of their element when they're not expected to sell themselves, but it's fascinating.
If you interpret what they actresses are really saying, it's sad; doubly sad that so many blindly love porn. For once the actresses are all really human though.
