Jamie Lee Curtis...Brand new nip slip and partial breast exposure from the just released movie "Tailor of Panama".

"Carne Tremula" (1997)

Carne Tremula (1997), titled Live Flesh in the US release, is possibly good enough to win over even those of you who hate subtitles. The plot is very strong, it has intrigue and passion, and could have been made in Hollywood, but probably not with as much mood, not with the same quality of art direction, and the sex scene would probably have been less-well lit, and nowhere near as artistic. Frequently foreign "art films" have a very slow pace, not enough plot to fill the running time, and rely on knowledge of the culture to fully appreciate. Director Pedro Almodovar (Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down) again shows why he is concidered Spains best current director.

This film is very accessible to the American mind. Francesca Neri (Elena) is a druggie and rather loose woman. She has had a quickie in a bar restroom with Liberto Rabal (Victor) who shows up at her apartment for a return engagement. She is not even remotely interested. She pulls a gun, a shot is fired, and the police arrive. The older cop tries to play Dirty Harry, while the younger cop tries to talk the situation through. The gun goes off, Victor is jailed, and the young cop is in a wheelchair.

The film actually begins with Victors birth in civil war Madrid to a Hooker on a city bus. He was not exactly from the upper echelons of society, but used his prison time to study. He leaves prison with a plan. Elena has married the young cop, mostly out of guilt for her part in the injury. He is a star wheelchair athlete, but is unable to have real sex. Victor, as revenge, wants to have non-stop sex for a night with Elena, leave her totally satisfied and hooked on him, then dump her. That is enough of the plot to get you started. Rent it and learn the rest. Neri is naked, and shows breasts and buns in a long and very hot sex scene with Rabal.

Maltin and Berardinelli agree on 3 1/2 stars, and IMDB readers say 7/4/10, which is consistent with the critics. The film grossed about $1.5m in the US. I give the film a B.

    I looked at these three new releases:

    Little Nicky. Sub-par movie. The thing that amazed me the most was the budget. they spend $80 million to make an Adam Sandler comedy. They spent less on Enemy at the Gates to recreate the battle of Stalingrad! It grossed $39 million. I guess it would have grossed the same $39 million if they had made it for $10 million or less. No nudity. 21 friggin' deleted scenes, and still no nudity. And that means I listened to Sandler talk in his kiddie voice for an extra 21 scenes, for nothing! And you think I don't suffer for my "art".

    Fall: the Price of Silence. Such a serious title. Sounds like a very serious movie, doesn't it? Wrong. it's a mob farce - an attempt to make a grade-b American version of the Guy Richie genre. Directed by that future Truffaut, the Chubby Baldwin Brother. An average straight-to-vid to begin with, but edited so strangely that it's barely comprehensible. Not that you'd really care. Fucking Kurosawa could re-edit it and it would still not be worth renting.

    The Substitute 4. This one is worth renting for two reasons:

    1. although it's the same old white supremacist military thing, Treat Williams is excellent in the lead. I hope he can limp back into A movies.

    2. two naked chicks, including Angie Everhart's breasts in clear light with no leaves or flowers in the way.

    • K.C. Powe (dunno who she is, but cute) (1, 2)

    • Angie Everhart (number 3 and 4 are the best) (1, 2, 3, 4)

    Graphic Response
  • Helen Shaver, bare breasts and some far off frontal exposure in scenes from 1983's "The Osterman Weekend".
  • Linnea Quigley, rare 'caps of the famous Scream Queen in a rape scene from "Savage Streets" (1984).

  • Brainscan
    I think I mentioned Interview magazine a while back: started by Andy Warhol, filled with first-rate interviews of interesting folks and sprinkled throughout with provocative pics of some real hotties. Scanned the last few issues and am passing along the best.

    First off is Gen X starlet of the month, Erika Christensen. Cleaned up the cover and got a couple of other teaser pics scanned. Link #1 is the real winner in the bunch with some see-through action.

  • Erika Christensen (1, 2, 3, 4)

  • Julianna Margulies is exposed far too little, both generally and in this scan.

    Loved the Robin Tunney pics and worked on them quite a while (for, you see, Interview is published on paper only slightly better than newsprint).

  • Robin Tunney (1, 2)

    And lastly there is the youngest of the Phoenix acting kids, Summer. Real babe, partial see-through.

    Kim Basinger A fantastic collage with great 'caps of Kim's love scene from "The Getaway". Excellent breast exposure, plus a nice bum view as well. Thanks to BFD.

    Billie Piper For the Euro Scoopy's another look at the young British pop star caught topless by the tabloids. Scan by The Rev.

    Helen Shaver
    (1, 2, 3)

    From "In Praise of Older Women" (1978). Topless views in all three, 70's style pubes in #2...meaning if you're headin' into that jungle, don't forget your machete!

    Mr. T
    Sorry gang, not the real Mr. T, but rather a vidcapper who is an obvious fan of the Mowaked One....By the way, if you're out there Mr. T, we would love to have you visit us in the Fun House sometime!

    On to the images and comments by Mr. T:

    No nudes today, just some lovely young things from the pseudo-men's rags.

    First we have Leslie Bibb (TV's Popular) from the May FHM. I thought I'd also include two attempts at scanning her 2-page spread just to show people how difficult it can be to put the two halves together. (links 6 and 7) In this case the glue (FHM is a glued, not stapled magazine) spilled out just enough between the pages to cause some tearing, and I didn't have enough picture info left to fill in the gaps. The two samples here show how I would have had to rotate and color balance the two halves to get them to match. Too bad about the tearing, it would have been a nice scan.

    By the way, did you ever notice how so many FHM photos have the heads chopped off at the top? What's up with that?

  • Leslie Bibb (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)

    Next up is the lovely Eliza Dushku ("Faith" on Buffy) from the May issue of Maxim. Again there is a 2-page spread, but this time the glue didn't interfere. I included before and after versions of this scan to compare with the Leslie Bibb picture for those who are interested in such things. (links 7 and 8) I'm still not quite as adept at this as I'd like to be, but I'm getting there.

    But enough of the scanning specs, this girl is hot! A great spread from Maxim with lots of cleavage and leather pants!

  • Eliza Dushku (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)

  • Fun House's Greatest Hits
    The nudity from last week's new releases on DVD pretty much consisted of nothing but wrinkled old geezer butts from "Space Cowboys". So once again I take a look back and spend a little time with some images that I've really enjoyed.

    Jeanne Tripplehorn
    (1, 2)

    Susan Sarandon
    (1, 2, 3)

    Kandeyce Jorden

    Amanda Donohoe

    Lisa Robin Kelly

    Parker Posey

    We've seen several great images from HBS Grafix. Here are several that are very much worth a second look.

  • Jeanne Tripplehorn nip slip, a nice little something for her fans.
  • Susan Sarandon in 1978's "Pretty Baby". Ok, so Brooke Shields gets all the credit for playing a 12-year-old prostitute in this movie. Who cares! What really matters is just how good Susan looked topless!
  • Kandeyce the indie film "Star Maps". You don't often see goodies this nice in the lesser films.
  • Amanda Donohoe topless in "Castaway".
  • Lisa Robin Kelly fans of "That 70's Show" know her as Laurie Forman, but before her small screen success she did this topless sex scene. From the movie "Amityville: Dollhouse" (1996).
  • Parker Posey...nothin' but skin from the waist up. Great 'caps for her fans from "Magic Maggie".

  • Rosie Perez A great compliment to yesterday's offering of Rosie images. Mongoose put together this collage of 'caps from "Do the Right Thing". Without a doubt, these are some of the best images of Rosie I've seen. Excellent presentation too.

    Eddie's Girls
    (1, 2, 3, 4)

    Tatjana Patitz
    (1, 2, 3, 4)

    Flipping through my hard drive, these vidcaps from "Rising Sun" caught my eye. I loved the book, and the movie wasn't too bad either so here they are.

    Tara Fitzgerald
    (1, 2, 3)

    From the vidcapper favorite "Sirens"...Watty did an incredible job with these images of Tara. The full frontal nudity is of course very nice, but #3 is the one that really stood out when I first saw it. To me, it seemed that Watty managed to capture the sensuality and emotion of the scene, as opposed to just a picture. Great job!

    In other news...
    Thnaks to Sleuth for this info:

    Tuna did a great job of grabbing Lois Hamilton's one frame of toplessness from "Summer Rental". Sadly, she committed suicide two days before Christmas in 1999 by slipping a plastic bag over her head in a Rio hotel room {detailed in Sleuth, V14 N1}. And, life imitating art, Lois had undergone an awful boob job {like in the film} years before.

    Also, the "some dude grabbing Rosie Perez's boobs" in Perdita Durango is none other than this year's Best Actor Oscar nominee, Javier {"Before Night Falls"} Bardem. He was ALSO the lucky bastard nibbling the nipples of pulchritudinous Penelope Cruz in Jamon, Jamon. It's not only Rod Stewart who has "all the luck"...


    Correcting the Correction
    Thanks to a viewer for pointing this out...

    Concerning the correction in Tuesday's fun house. The topless and bum pics are indeed Christiane Kruger, but the top row of pics is Senta Berger. Everything else is Christiane. Didn't want Senta to get no credit at all, since she is so beautiful. Just wish she had shed more clothes in the movie.
