After Porn Ends 2 picks up where its predecessor left off, and not only turns back the clock to meet the oldest living stars in adult film's history, but goes in depth with some of its most current retirees, and juxtaposes their experiences in a life after porn. Delving deeper into society's ongoing stigmas of race, misogyny, and the reality of decreasing opportunities for these former VHS box cover stars. For some, their careers in adult entertainment are accepted proudly and without regret. In fact, it seems to have proven to be the pathway to their current happiness and inner peace. For others, however, a career in porn has proven to be a conduit to certain despair as they struggle to find a way to bury their past and emerge with a new career or calling.Written by
This follow-up to the 2012 original is an improvement, both in terms of technical accomplishment and the talking head interviews. The subjects this time around (which include Ginger Lynn, Lisa Ann, Janine Lindemulder and Georgina Spelvin) are articulate, bringing no-nonsense insights on what could easily be an uncomfortable subject. It puts the audience at ease and makes it easier to digest some rather unsavory elements of the pornography industry, not to mention that the movie gradually becomes darker as it goes along. It falls short of being a great documentary because of some editing issues and it perhaps runs a little too long, but it's worth a shot for fans of documentaries and those seeking to peek behind the curtains of a notorious industry.
