Not much more than a modern day equivalent of a 'white coater' with so-called art, rather than faux medical documentary, providing a fig leaf for depictions of real sex. In this respect it's disreputable compared to labelled pornography which at least does what what it says on the tin without subterfuge. On it's own limited terms: a tedious rag bag portmanteau of pretension amid a pubic forest of genitillia.
autant revoir les superbes films pornographiques de Gérard Damiani ou relire l'oeuvre de Georges Bataille et Pierre Louÿs. Et j'aurai plutôt envie d'évoquer les harmonieux gazouillis diurnes d'un hochequeue insouciant que cette pénible démonstration montrant bien que tout reste à faire et à défaire dans l'approche cinématographique de la sexualité. www.cinefiches.com
Sometimes unintentionally funny, because the intended provocations don't work properly. Especially Abramovic's part is very poor compared to her often strong performances. However the film does have some special visual moments: For me, Marco Brambilla's fast montage with its close relationship between visuals and sound is the most original part.
I give it an extra star just for the silliness. "Here are my two pillows, take them, don't you see?' I would love to been at the planning meetings for some of these videos. "Wait ... You want to do what with your penis?" Richard Prince is a despicable loser. What a surprise! As for Larry Clark, I think this is what he wanted to do all along. Goes back to those Tulsa days. More Abramovic, please.
Worth it most definitely for "Hoist". Watched it on DVD from Netflix which I guess is missing the works by Abramovic and Sam Taylor Wood. Pretty bummed out because I was looking forward to the two. The video by Tunga in the DVD is also of note mainly for the crystals and shit eating.
