Spider's Web

I spent just a few more minutes on this film when my e-mail correspondent finally convinced me what was so special about the unrated version. There are about four frames which show Kari Wuhrer's bumhole, and they were cut from the Region 2 DVD.


Here is just that particular deleted footage.  
Here are some captures of the moments in question

Tuna and I reviewed this film long ago, and we both liked it, which is pretty damned rare for a grade-B straight-to-vid. I felt it would have been watchable as a thriller even without the nudity, which is my basic screening criterion for a top-notch erotic thriller, so the sex and nudity was icing on the cake. It's not a classic erotic thriller like Body Heat or Body Double, but it's in the second tier with films like Sea of Love, except that Blonde Baldwin is no Pacino.



* Yellow asterisk: funny (maybe).

* White asterisk: expanded format.

* Blue asterisk: not mine.

No asterisk: it probably sucks.

Broken English

Broken English (1996) is a New Zealand drama highlighting racial problems among Croatian immigrants, Chinese, and Maori. It's told from the point of view of Aleksandra Vujcic, the mature and ripe daughter of a Croatian immigrant (Rade Serbedzija). No matter how much the overbearing Rade tries to control her, she has decided it is time to leave the nest. She works in a Chinese restaurant, and agrees to accept money to marry the boyfriend of one of the waitresses so he can obtain residency (her mother was born in New Zealand, so she is a citizen). This gives her enough money to move out from her father's house, and move in with the new Maori cook, Julian Arahanga. Once Julian finds out exactly how bad her father is, he tries to break it off, but that is before everyone discovers she is pregnant.

I will admit to a weakness for films with cross-cultural themes, and it was nice to see the star crossed lovers win one for a change, but it was the acting that really made this film for me. Rade Serbedzija has incredible screen presence and power, and sells every part I have ever seen him play. Julian Arahanga was superb, and had huge chemistry with the beautiful Aleksandra Vujcic, who also sold the role. The one sex scene that included nudity really sizzled, and ended when the bed collapsed. This is likely the scene that earned the film its NC-17 rating, although I have seen similar material in-R rated films.

  • The proper score is likely a C, but will be most appreciated by those who like cross-cultural themes and insights.
  • IMDb readers say 6.6, and it won numerous technical and acting awards.
  • It's only available in a Region 4 PAL DVD. Here is a link to the exclusive American importer.

There are several sex scenes, but nudity in only one of them. Aleksandra Vujcic does full frontal, but in a very darkly lit scene.










The Longest Yard

The Time Machine goes all the way back to 1974 for a "Babe in Bondage": Tina Aumont in Lifespan, with some consensual bondage scenes with a lover.








Yo soy la Juani

Juani (Veronica Echegui) lives at home with her loser father and stoic mother. She works as a checkout girl in an electronics store in the Spanish provinces. Her gorilla-like b.f., Jonah (Dani Martin) has his mind on cars, sex and jealousy. Juani's best friend Vani (Laya Marti), who is obsessed with having a boob job, goes out with Nacho. The tedium of pueblo existence is well-rendered. When Vani is violently attacked by Nacho, and Juani finds Jonah having sex with another girl, Vani and Juani head to Madrid, where, they follow different paths. Vani falls in love, while Juani falls into the clutches of a slimeball film producer.

Rome really stepped up the nudity on Sunday, with some goodies from three actresses, and an especially memorable effort from Alice Henley and Drusilla. Here are the film clips. Sample captures below.

Alice Henley Alice Henley Lyndsey Marshal Zuleikha Robinson

Gry Bay and Eileen Daly in All About Anna. This is another one of those films which was marketed as starring mainstream actors ion explicit sex scenes. Of course, to me Gry Bay is not a mainstream actress. She's just another complete unknown, so All About Anna is just another medium core porn film. Anyway, here's all the goodies in a massive download.

This is really a great clip of Christina Ricci in Black Snake Moan. No nudity, but just about the hottest non-nude clip ever. I haven't seen the film yet, but this may be the most unabashedly sleazy movie since Wild Things.

Hot off the presses, Sarah Parish in Recovery, a brand new BBC drama. Sarah is beloved of Brit-nerds for her appearance on Doctor Who.
