2-0 out of 5 stars Looking for Lots of Celebrity Skin? Look Elsewhere
Priscilla Barnes of TV's "Three's Company" promoted this movie, saying something like, "I have a very daring nude lesbian scene..." Well, she is in the movie, and she plays a lesbian, but aside from a few kisses and caresses, the ladies don't do much. If the Priscilla footage is the only reason you want to see "Erotique," you will be disappointed.

The movie is four sex-related short films spliced together. The first one is about a phone-sex worker, and it's kind of dumb; the next is longer and set in Latin America on board a train, and it's even worse. Then there's "Taboo Parlor," starring Priscilla, and while the sex and nudity are too brief the itsy-bitsy movie itself is better than the first two. Finally, there's "Wonton Soup," a movie about a Chinese couple that's really well made.

But again, if Priscilla Barnes is the drawing card for you, save your money and buy a collectors' edition of 3/76 Penthouse, which features her as Pet of the Month.

1-0 out of 5 stars Insufferably bad soft porn.
Yes, it's porn. Yes, it's SOFT porn. And, yes, it is very, very bad. There are many films out there that do sex and fantasy well, tell a story, and contain "ideas." Try, for example, "Lady Beware" or even "Crimes of Passion." The acting and writing in Erotique is, well, wanting. The scenarios (not just the phone sex story but ALL of them) is standard stuff pilfered from the pages of Penthouse Forum circa 1977. Been there, done that, don't care. An utter waste of money and time.

2-0 out of 5 stars Majesty of hominism
I thank Leonard Maltin for standing up for the majesty of hominism and LOGOS in art, which is well-practiced and annealed innovation. Unnanealèd experimentation should remain in private, and not be hideously aired like dirty laundry. Thus had Leonard, with the light of modesty, abjured this aborted endeavor with a just and measured implacability.

1-0 out of 5 stars A total tasteless video
Very dull and boring. Nothing but a complete turn off. One or two scenes started getting spicy and while it seemed that they could produce a 'start engine' condition, they abnormally terminated, without succeeding their point even at least. As for nude scenes... A schoolchildren suitable video. I do not seek exclusively for hard-core scenes. Erotic videos can be far more arousing, if well made,(e.g:Penthouse videos) without the sole need of them. I was totally dissapointed with this one. A total waste of time and money...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good and funny look at sex in 90's
Agree with that other reviewer that Maltin can only understand Disney fare. This one is for art films lovers who also want to laugh. Rented it from NetFLix, liked it so much that I'm buying it from Amazon. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A dangerous game, a delicious cake, and a family feud
Okay, I'm going to be a little bias on critiquing this DVD. This is because I am the writer of the story of one of the three episodes on this DVD.

This DVD consists of the Red Shoe Diaries episodes: The Game, The Cake, and Like Father Like Son.

'The Game' is about a woman who broke herself free of a relationship that was based on a sexual 'truth or dare' style game. This episode is for the "no holds barred" type of lovers out there.

'The Cake' is the episode I wrote the story for. It's about a woman who can't decide on a birthday cake at a bakery for her husband. The baker gets an idea to decorate her as the birthday cake. The results? You'll have to see for yourself. :) This episode is for anyone curious to try new things.

'Like Father Like Son' is about a man infatuated with his father's lover. She, at first, thinks of him as just a boy but thinks otherwise later and has to decide between the two.

The DVD has some excellent additions to it:

Photo galleries from all 3 episodes

An option to hear commentary from producer/director Zalman King during the episodes

A Red Shoe Diaries trivia game

Behind the scenes footage (mostly in 'The Cake') that you can view at the appropriate moments of the episode

English and Spanish Translations

For the Red Shoe Diaries fans, this is a must have DVD. I hope you like it (especially my episode).

Oh, I do have a 1 1/2 second cameo on 'The Cake'. If you use the 'commentary' option, Zalman will point me out to you. :)

Enjoy! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Independent Film
First - for those who may be confused a bit - this is NOT the Melanie Griffith / Harrison Ford movie - Working Girl !!!!

This film, by independent filmmaker Lizzie Borden, caused quite the stir in it's day. When first released, on a very limited basis, it was hailed for it's true-life, non-glarmorus dipiction of prostitutes.

The film has aged fairly well. The fashion, however, has not .

The story follows Molly, a working girl, on a day in the life sort of journey.

The filmmaking is sparce, but effective. This is no "Pretty Woman", nor is it intended to be. We're presented with a Big City Brothel and it's employees. There's nothing fancy or particularily beautiful about them - though some of the "girls" are attractive.

The main point, I believe, is that this is a JOB. It's a harsh reality look at what some women do for money. It's not slicked over and it's now over-drawn, the film presents prostitution clearly and, more importantly, without judgement.

The script is on the money and a good script is always a good place to start.

There are no exotic locales - we're mainly invited into the brothel - an upper class condo/apartment. It's a bleak sort of existance.

I'd recommend this film to the Independent Movie lover. It's one of the first and finest examples of what a limited budget, a good script and a good director can do.

Recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars Bongo wants to take a show.
Working Girls (not to be confused with the singular and singularly awful Mike Nichols movie that features Melanie Griffith vacuuming a carpet, nakedly) is an easily underestimated accomplishment, and despite the rampant nudity and unblinking depictions of adult sexuality, a guaranteed sex-deterrent.

It's hilarious, embarassing, grim, deeply disturbing, cynical, touching, clinical and creepily locker-room-intimate, all at the same time.

There will be those people who can't make it past the low budget vibe that (admittedly) permeates the whole movie, but anyone who criticizes its occasionally stilted acting (and it's an easy target) misses the point: it's PROSTITUTION. Which is to say that paid sex is possibly the root source of all bad acting. Even having said that, the performances are deceptively understated in their squirmy, quasi-nude ease.

The characters of Lucy and Dawn especially, are horrifically too-true. I walked around mimicking Lucy's idiotic "What's new and different?" for weeks. Dawn's gum-snapping hostility, and her impromptu James Brown imitation ("Good God, Mollie- you're a whoooore!") are as grating as they are winning. Singling these two actresses out is unfair though; their characters are especially dynamic, given that they're essentially opposing ends of the same spectrum of self absorption.

Even the least likely supporting roles are realized with unexpected complexity. Witness Lucy, the house's madam, reprimanding Mary, a mousy new 'girl' for her unappealing wardrobe choice on her first night on the job. When Lucy reminds her condescendingly that she is to dress as though she "just came from lunch with her mother, and is on hew way to meet her boyfriend for drinks", Mary replies in a small voice, with a discomfiting mixture of stubborness and shame, "This is what I wore."

Possibly the most remarkable aspect of this movie is the realization that prostitution, at least at this elevated level (the 'girls' work in a clean, modern apartment, and schedule 'appointments' through phone ads listed mostly in upscale skin magazines) is just another daily grind, a job, plain and simple. Ellen McElduff's Lucy is every thoughtless, self-absorbed boss you've ever wanted to throttle; the difference is that she's seen you naked, and can talk about your sex life with no legal repercussions.

That's glib, of course; each of the 'girls' is seen to struggle with the work, and what it means in a larger sense, politically and personally. Finally though, just as it seems uncompromisingly grim, the film sneaks in a remarkable twist. It's essential to watch to the very end of the closing credits though, or you might miss a moment that offers a lovely moment of reassurance, and tender domesticity. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great In the Red Shoe Series
I bought this dvd and let me assure you all it did not disappoint. This is another smash hit in a long line of Red Shoe Diaries titles. I popped this in my player and did not move until every last credit rolled by. My friends Neil & Iris huge red shoe diary fans agree. This one is a real winner. A must have for you collectors. Iris Is a true lover of red underwear maybe why she loves the red shoe diaries. One scene that is commonly reenacted in the Frank house is Iris cooks a meal and sits and the glass kitchen tabke with Neil. Neil wears nothing but his red underwear, and Iris wears a tight fitting black shirt with nice white panties. If this doesn't make you want to watch I don't know what will. PAY THE MONSTER ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Playboy - Inside Out 1
This is worth it, if only for the short directed by Alexander Payne (Election). It's hysterically funny! In it a woman drifts into sleep while fantasizing about numerous oddball men coming into her room and doing things to her (such as pouring cream corn over her body). Great work! If you're only into the "erotica" though, you may as well look elsewhere. The only originality here comes from Mr. Payne's sharp wit. ... Read more
