Video clips: Nicole Kidman, Part 2 of ?
I have nothing more to say about Stanley Kubrick's swan-song
Eyes Wide Shut. Tuna and I said our pieces at the Movie
House page. The movie may be great or it may suck, but the
nudity is copious and is phenomenally well photographed. So
there's that. How much can you complain about a movie that has
Kidman stark naked in the opening credits? The final Kidman nude scene,
with her and the anonymous sailor, is one of
the hottest moments in her career. (Zipped
Birth is an artsy-fartsy thriller which should probably never
have been made. James Berardinelli called in pretentious crap, and
he liked it more than Tuna. (Movie
House Link). I liked it more than they did because I got
involved in the mystery and the moral dilemma and I liked the
consistent atmosphere, but I have to admit it's too arty, too
slow, takes itself too seriously, and has an unsatisfying ending,
so you should certainly not seek it out. In addition to all those
problems, the freakin' nude scene is WAY too dark. I lightened it
significantly in this zipped
.wmv, which means you can see the body parts, but the flip
side of that is that it looks like complete shit.
The Human Stain is an intellectual's movie, and a good
one, but a depressing one, and another that is way too
self-important and non-commercial. The studio exec
who approved a $30 million budget for this is probably in a soup
line as you read this. In
House review, I say, "Excellent movie, but no
entertainment value and clearly limited appeal." Tuna says, "I was
very impressed. If you are interested in intelligent
character-driven dramas that really dig deeply and honestly into
people's lives, this is a very good one." The nudity is not
explicit, but Kidman's sensuous dance and her purring come-ons are
quite hot! (Zipped
Billy Bathgate, an old-fashioned gangster story starring
Dustin Hoffman and Bruce Willis, is the only one of these four
movies which has some genuine entertainment value. As I wrote in
House review, "I enjoyed the film.
There's nothing you haven't seen before, but it's all done well."
Directed by Robert Benton (Kramer vs Kramer) and written by E.L.
Doctorow (Ragtime) and Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love), it is
underrated at IMDb with a 5.7. You certainly can't grouse about
the nudity. Kidman shows her pubes three times, once in clear
light, once outdoors in broad daylight, and once underwater. (Zipped
If you look at Billy Bathgate and then Eyes Wide Shut, you'll
see that Kidman did a remarkable job of getting fitter as she got
older. She was ten years older in EWS, but every part of her was
better toned, and the perfect butt we remember from EWS was
actually sorta dumpy-lookin' in Bathgate. Each of the two movies
has a "Kidman before the mirror" scene.
"A request for the regulars: About 25 years ago or so
Lesley-Anne Down did a thriller called "Sphinx" in which she
played an Egyptologist looking for a mummy or something. The film
isn't important, though - what is important is that Down, while on
location, posed for a series of non-nude but very sexy photographs
that were apparently done to promote the movie, even though they
have virtually nothing to do with it other than the location. I've
seen some of these pop up over the years but they're usually
pretty tiny or of not-so-good quality. If anyone can post photos
from this shoot that are of high quality or close to it, please do
so so we can all enjoy Down at her physical peak."

Hot Tamale (2006)
Hot Tamale (2006) is a direct to vid indie made for around $500K. IMDb
lists it as action/romance/crime, and I would agree in all three cases. Randy
Spelling has grown up in Wyoming, and feels like he is stuck in the wrong
family, having nothing in common with his parents. When a foreign exchange
student, Matt Cedeņo, moves in with him, he discovers his calling -- playing
salsa music. A few years later, it occurs to him that Wyoming is not a likely
place to get rich and famous playing salsa, and moves to LA, where he will
stay with Cedeņo, and try to become a salsa drummer.
His trip is not uneventful, as he meets Jason Priestly in a diner. Priestly
hides a handbag in his truck, and then, after Spelling pulls off, two mobsters
shoot Priestly. Now the hoods are after Spelling. Meanwhile, Spelling learns
that Matt Cedeņo is off to New York to meet with some art gallery owner, and
he will have the run of his apartment. The next morning, he wakes up to a
naked Diora Baird. When he finds that Matt Cedeņo has scored him an audition
with a band because their drummer was deported, a cop shows up looking for
Matt Cedeņo, and an abusive woman (Carmen Electra) starts calling him on a
cell phone in the handbag, all the players are in place. From there, the film
careens among humor, violence and romance, and kept me guessing for the most
This film has four bare breasts, humor, violence, fascinating characters, a
great salsa soundtrack, and is a very quick watch. I found it an excellent
entertainment film. C+.
IMDb has lowered the 7.0 average score to 4.2 using their secret sauce. In
my opinion, 7.0 is closer to the truth.
Dann reports on Swedish Wildcats:
1972's Swedish Wildcats (also known as Every Afternoon) is a
70's sexploitation flick that tries to be more, with limited success.
Susanna and Karen are Swedish sisters who
are prostitutes in a Swedish bordello run by their aunt, played by a very
fat Diana Dors. The madam offers sex tease shows and S&M acts to
encourage business, and doesn't seem to mind that she has her nieces
The movie seems to rotate between showing
what a crappy business prostitution is, showing what a bitch the madam is,
and showing the girls attempting but mostly failing to have normal love
Plot wise, this thing tries too hard
without succeeding, but 70's eye-candy-wise, it's worth a look.
