What are people saying?

  • El Biffo's rating of the film The Private Afternoons of Pamela Mann

    A Masterpiece from the Golden Age of Porn. The sex scenes are sublime, perfectly performed and made into cinema by Radley Metzger. Between sex scenes are interjections, statements on colonialism and class consciousness, disguised as a "joke".// Oh, and Woody Allen's iconic bridge scene in Manhattan was borrowed from/inspired by an almost identical scene in this picture, slightly modified. A brilliant work of erotica.
