Quote:
This film was made in the 70’s, with Jean-Pierre Bouyxou. The superimpositions at the end are in some ways influenced by Etienne O’Leary’ stuff : Lethem didn’t saw the films, but Bouyxou was talking to him so much about these movies that if influenced him surely…

This is part of the “belgian underground” with Patrick Hella, Noel Godin, etc… Continue reading

29f7c043f76a2bde437fd0d52a185152

Tighttwat Institute for Sexual Research, aka “Hard-on Heaven”, is where Dr. Cherrypopper gets sex readings from assistant Miss Motormouth. Their new client is impotent Harry Flattout. As a workplace sex pacifier, Harry pacified Ginny Pullertit and shy new worker Mary-Ann Lobglob, with assistance from Thunderfart, who moved on to passer-by Captain Sukatiddy. Harry got fired ganging up on Mr. Cockpul’s private secretary and lover, Elaine Ziptitz. Dr. Tighttwat takes her own advantage of Harry, supposedly ascertaining his case while really climaxing while remaining a virgin. Up next, Dr. Cherrypopper’s machine overloads when his assistant seduces him, and the assistant test drives Harry’s resulting permanent erection. Harry uses it to forcefully deflower Dr. Tighttwat, until she consents. So does Elaine Ziptitz, who reveals ending up enjoying their first encounter. Harry is re-hired as the boss realizes the importance of fringe benefits. Continue reading

L.A. Plays Itself begins as a mock-pastorale, with a steamy woodland encounter between a long-haired blonde guy and a hunky brunette whose face, typical of the director, we can barely discern. This extended hardcore sequence of outdoor sex gives way to images of bulldozers tearing down parts of the city; noisy, car-choked streets; and opportunistic encounters that occur both onscreen and on the audio track, the latter in the form of a conversation between a hayseed from Texas who’s just arrived in town and a predator who pretends to warn him of the dangers of the “big city” as a kind of nervous foreplay ritual. Halsted’s sex is sweaty and desperate, set against images of cruelty and destruction both in the bedrooms, bathhouses, and casual sexspaces where it occurs and in the grim, trashy world looming just outside. The sardonic commentaries of the director, who’s also usually a participant even when only seen in shadow, add unexpected touches of humanity.L.A.

Jesus Franco – El ojete de Lulú AKA Lulu’s Talking Ass (1986)

Quote:
Jess Franco and Lina Romay co-directed this film, which is a vile, rather disgusting and lazy “comedy/porno”. The American title is Lulu’s Talking Ass so that should tell you something. In the film, a talking ass (provided by Romay) tells various sexual stories and we get to see the scenes. Even by Franco standards this thing here is pretty useless and the sex scenes never enter the erotic zone but instead go towards the vile level. Once again it seems this film was shot in the matter of days if not hours and it really shows on screen. I had to view the film in Spanish without any subs so I’m not sure if the “talking ass” has any good dialogue or not. The funniest moment of the film is when one of the male actors goes to switch positions and accidentally falls off the bed. Being Franco, he left it in the film. Franco’s opinion of the Academy Awards also gets a special mention since the talking ass comes upon an Oscar and does something to it, which I won’t mention here. Continue reading
