The film that caused me to cancel my Mubi subscription. If this had been censored (being pro-censorship in the case of real-life child pornography as opposed to, say, the Dangerous Cartoons Act) I would have given it two stars due to the balance between the crude and the charming, but showing uncensored [Victorian] pornographic photography of children is vile.
I don't want to sound like a prude or a square but there's actual child pornography in this film 5:35 to 5:48. At least it's only PART of the dude's porn collection and not the whole thing. Why did Mubi bother to censor the doggie fucking a woman and not the child porn? Which isn't nearly as bad, although we don't know if the dog was coerced or was consenting or what. I want Mubi to show porn! But not child porn.
A Private Collection, by Walerian Borowczyk is a bizarre showcase of Vintage paintings and other odds and ends regarding the concept of sex. While the film tries to comment on the human interpretation of what sex truly is and how it can be experimental for everyone, it seems to fail in this regard and becomes more or less a showcase of pornographic images for fourteen minutes long and not so much a documentary.
This film was absolutely, ridiculously bizarre. The point of this film I could not find. It was a mans private collection of novelty pornographic images, drawings, and toys. The significance of the Police man toy that kept being turned was unclear. Very strange short film.
It was an amusing experience to see erotic art I've seen in online collections in a more natural context as well as pieces I couldn't even fathom existing. Everything is lovingly as well as humorously presented, which i imagine might have took the edge of in a time period where sex was still mildly taboo. A sexy blast from the past where even the most unsuspecting objects are of an erotic nature.
