"Les Roseaux sauvages"

Les Roseaux sauvages (1994), or The Wild Reeds stars a then 21 year old Élodie Bouchez. Some may remember that I tried this two years ago, but the results were not good. It is not an easy DVD to work with, as the subtitles are mandatory, and the transfer is not very good, but Bouchez's first exposure deserved a second try. She shows a breast near the end of the film while losing her virginity. It is a coming of age film about several school chums in 1962. It is set against the backdrop of the Algerian war. Bouchez's best friend is gay, has one lovely night with a star athlete, and then no more. Bouchez ends up with an Algerian refugee just before he leaves the small town. The film is most notable for not making any value judgements about the homosexuality, and the tender treatment of everyone's feelings. If this is your sort of film, you will like it. C.

    "Play Nice"

    Play Nice (1992) - As you know, I watch a lot of obscure, grade B, and budget films. Usually, they are something of a chore to watch, but occasionally one surprises me. This is one of them. Billed as an erotic thriller, there was nothing erotic in the first half of the film, but I was hooked on the characters and plot completely by then. A cop is investigating a serial killer. He is called "Mouth," and is an outcast in his own department due to the fact that he says and does the outlandish, and seems insensitive. As the film progresses, we learn that he has a serious side, is sensitive, and a damned good detective. Other characters are developed with as much care, and as much humor. About mid way, the film turns more serious. Mouth (Ed O'Ross) meets a county records clerk, Louise Robey, and the two of them end up naked, in bed, and often. By then, we know that the serial killer is a woman, and seems to go after divorced men who have molested their young daughters and escaped prosecution. Robey shows breasts and buns in scene after scene, but some of the humor remains, and the thriller aspect is very much in evidence.

    Robey is best known for her role in Friday the 13th, the Series. I was not familiar with her, but found her IMDB biography fascinating:

    "Louise Ann Robey was born in Montreal, Canada, in 1960, the daughter of an Air Force Major and a London stage actress. Robey was educated in schools throughout Europe, and learned a number of languages while also developing her talents in dance, music and painting. At age 15, she studied dance at the London Royal Academy of Ballet, then returned to Canada hoping to pursue a career in music and dance. In 1979, while sunbathing on the French Riviera, Robey was spotted by the famed photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue, who photographed her and got her a 12-page spread in "Vogue Paris" that same year. Those pictures launched Robey on a successful modeling career. Robey moved to America during the early 1980s and formed a band in New York under the name "Louise and the Creeps." They broke up before they recorded anything, but Robey persevered. In 1984, Robey landed a recording contract on the Silver Blue Label. Her debut album, "Robey" was released; it contained 8 tracks, including one which became the album's first single, the wildly popular hit "One Night In Bangkok." This song reached #5 on the Billboard Dance Chart in late 1984, but from the way it was played on radio stations all over America, it seemed more popular than that, with its great beat, and lyrics of a far-off land, and risqué nights. Other singles followed. Beautiful Robey was a natural for TV, and in 1987 she landed her signature role of Micki Foster in "Friday the 13th: The Series" which ran for 3 seasons and 72 episodes. Robey was out of the spotlight for 1991 but returned in 1992 with the erotic thriller Play Nice . In 1994, Robey married Charles Francis Topham de Vere Beauclerk, Lord of Burford (Burford is a small town near Oxford in the United Kingdom). Robey's marriage to the Earl has made her Countess of Burford. They have one son, James. Their marriage ended in early 2001, and the two share custody of their son. Robey toured the UK briefly in the summer of 2000 with I.E. Soul. In January 2001, Robey began recording with producer Mark Harwood at Spring Vale Studios in Suffolk, UK. Robey also has her own rock band Fourman Fubar, and is involved in a dance music project titled "A Guy Called Dready." Robey is still fondly remembered for "Friday the 13th: The Series," which is being rerun in syndication. Robey got where she is today by hard work, though her fans might say the results are nothing short of magical."

    This is a life that deserves a biopic already, and she is nowhere near through with it. One has to wonder why a classically trained dancer and painter, and star of a long running TV series took a role in a soft core. This, as near as I can tell, is her only exposure.

    This film only scores 5.3 of 10 at IMDB, with only 28 votes. This is too low in my opinion, but the structure of the film might go a ways towards explaining it. For those looking for the skin, they have probably turned off the film by the time it starts, and thriller lovers might be put off by all of the nudity and sex. I personally would have preferred a little less sex and more story in the second half, but the film would have kept me watching to the end even with no nudity at all. It is definitely a soft core in the second half, but the sex scenes are very hot, and not gratuitous. They handle red herrings and plot twists in a very interesting way. Our POV is the same as Mouth, and we suspect the right person along with him, and fall for the same trick as he does. This gets a C+, and a high recommendation for anyone who won't be offended by the nudity and sex. Best of all, you will find it in the $6.95 discount section of your local store.

    No shirt? No shoes? No dice. I think my review is one of my better ones although, as is my wont, I rarely mention the actual film I'm supposed to be discussing. What was it again?

    • Jennifer Jason Leigh (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
    • Phoebe Cates. I don't think we ever rated the top nude scenes of all time, but I think this would have to be among the leaders. Two words, both "hubba". (1, 2, 3)

    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

    The actress who has made a career out of challenging and often, very nude roles in scenes from "On ne meurt que deux fois" aka "He Died with His Eyes Open" (1985). Rampling was 40 when this movie was made, and showed all three B's!

    Unknown Unknown toplessness from "Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia" (1974).


    Today we have Sally Ann Stroud as a "Damsel in Distress", in "Foxy Brown". She's topless while being menaced by the bad guys.

    The B actress sometimes known as "Alexander Keith" showing off her fake'uns and also doing some frontal nudity. HBS has labeled the source of these images as a movie called "Brennende Begierde". My best guess...that is the German video title for "Animal Instincts III".

    Pat Reeder The Comedy Wire
    As always, Pat's comments in yellow...

    >From IMDB News. First up, Daryl Hannah continues her obsession with the stripper's pole. She and Pamela Anderson should form a support group (Pam could use a little support anyway)...

    Daryl's Stripper Posse
    Movie star Daryl Hannah knows how to make a party sparkle - she brings along her own strippers. Hannah recently insisted a limousine was hired to take her from Los Angeles to Las Vegas for the Light club opening at the Bellagio hotel - because she was too afraid to fly. Upon arrival in Vegas after the four-hour drive, the actress stepped out of the limo with five exotic dancers - the friends she made while filming stripclub documentary Strip Notes.

    Next is Renee Zellweger, who insists on playing Bridget Jones as a thin neurotic ditz instead of a fat neurotic ditz. Better watch out, Renee, they could get any actress in Hollywood to do that...

    Renee To Be A Slim Bridget
    Beautiful actress Renée Zellweger has confirmed she is refusing to repeat her fat performance in the Bridget Jones's Diary sequel. The Texan star famously went on a high-fat diet to get into character for her starring performance opposite Hugh Grant in last year's hit movie - but can't face the prospect of piling on weight for the upcoming sequel. She exclaims, "There is no way I'm going to put all that weight on again. No way - I hated it! They're not going to make me do it - I refuse!"

    This Time, Ophelia Gets The Guy! - Over the weekend, the Sacramento, California, Opera presented "The Tales of Hoffman," a sexy opera about a man falling madly in love with a series of women. During one aria, the soprano playing Ophelia took too deep a breath in her tight costume and it popped open. She had nothing underneath and was exposed from the waist up. A real trooper, she finished the aria without missing a note. The manager said there's no guarantee it'll happen in each performance.

    * But if the costumer can rig it, there's a bonus in it for her.

    * For the first time in history, men are lining up to buy opera tickets.

    * The soprano wasn't half as upset as the men in the audience who were fast asleep when it happened.

    * Back in the days when all opera singers were really fat, one popped girdle could take out the first three rows of patrons.

    UCLA Has Found Its Commencement Speaker! - Cher called the Washington Post to vent about Attorney General John Ashcroft covering the bare-breasted Lady Justice statue behind him at press conferences. She called it "unbelievable" and "shocking," saying soon they'll be deciding what books we can read and taking away all our freedoms. Cher ranted, "What are we going to do next? Put shorts on the statue of David, put an 1880s bathing suit on 'Venus Rising' and a shirt on the Venus de Milo?"

    * Only if John Ashcroft is doing a press conference from the Louvre.

    * If you bar the public display of hand-sculpted replicas of semi-naked women, Cher will be out of work.

    * Cher was so upset she would've frowned, if she still could.

    From the Mailbag
  • A note from Spaz...
    Last Saturday somebody requested Shelly Hack in "The Finishing Touch". Her character was nude but it's obviously a body-dub as you don't see her face. In fact, Shelly Hack's credited body double is Siv Petersen whoever that is.

  • A request
    I was wondering about two things. 1.Does anyone have any nude pics of Michelle Williams in "Me Without You" or "Killer Joe" or whatever the name was of that broadway show she did? and 2.Does anyone have any new pics from "Prrozac Nation"?
