- Charlie's French Cinema Nudity Site is updated - big
update this week.
Third party videos:
- Leelee Sobieski shows a little bit of flesh in In A Dark
Place. I guess. I haven't seen the film, and I don't know anyone
who has. It's a loose interpretation of Henry James's "The Turn
of the Screw," and I don't know if it is ever going to be
released. I can't even tell you for sure that these are from the
film, because I picked them up out of usenet, and I'm just
trusting the labeling. I may have a screener of this stitting
around somewhere, but I have to look for it. If so, I'll give
you an update tomorrow. One suspects that the butt shot is a
body double, but the side-rear boob action is really Leelee. (Two
.wmvs zipped together.)
- An Awfully Big Adventure is another movie I'll have to see
one of these days. In the meantime, enjoy the nudity from Carol
.avi) and Georgina Cates (two
.avis zipped together.)

Grumpy Kazakhs invite Borat
to "his" land, at last
- I have mixed feelings
about Borat's feud with Kazakhstan. On the one
hand, I feel that he might have been better
off if he had simply made up a fictitious
country in Eastern Europe or Central Asia. If
you weren't aware of it, none of his material
actually has anything to do with Kazakhstan,
other than the occasional mention of a real
place or name. The scenes are filmed in
Romania; the phrases he speaks are actually
derived from Polish; and the culture he
affects is completely bogus. He could change
his origin to any obscure culture and the
routine would work just as well. He could just
as easily have claimed an origin from Estonia,
Belarus, Uzbekistan, Herzegovina, Tajikistan
or a couple dozen more places in the former
Soviet Union or Soviet Bloc. Kazahkstan just
happened to draw the short straw.
- Having noted that, we
need to realize that an important element of
Cohen's humor is derived from the ignorance of
the real people he encounters in the USA and
UK, and he constantly hammers away at the fact
that he can say anything he likes about a real
country - the ninth largest country in the
world - and nobody ever seems to know that he
is completely wrong in every detail. It is
surprising that he never seems to get unmasked
by the people he pranks. My family comes from
Uzbekistan and still has family there and in
Kazakhstan, and the older people in the family
would immediately spot Borat as an imposter.
And, of course, Polish speakers should
immediate recognize the phrases he uses and
pronounces almost correctly. It seems that
someone in America would speak Polish or
Kazakh or Russian to him and realize he's just
winging it. But nobody ever does. (Or maybe
those episodes are left on the cutting room
floor.) That point would be lost if he came
from a fictitious country.

Dreamgirls - the trailer
- Twenty-five years
after first bringing Broadway audiences to
their feet, the Tony Award-winning musical
sensation "Dreamgirls" comes to the big screen
starring Academy Award® winner Jamie Foxx
("Ray"), Beyoncé Knowles ("Austin Powers in
Goldmember"), Danny Glover (the "Lethal
Weapon" franchise), newcomer Jennifer Hudson,
Tony Award winner Anika Noni Rose (Broadway's
"Caroline or Change") and Eddie Murphy ("The
Nutty Professor," "Dr. Dolittle").
Set in the turbulent
early 1960s to mid-70s, "Dreamgirls" follows
the rise of a trio of women—Effie (Jennifer
Hudson), Deena (Beyoncé Knowles) and Lorrell (Anika
Noni Rose)—who have formed a promising girl
group called The Dreamettes. At a talent
competition, they are discovered by an
ambitious manager named Curtis Taylor, Jr.
(Jamie Foxx), who offers them the opportunity
of a lifetime: to become the back-up singers
for headliner James "Thunder" Early (Eddie
Murphy). Curtis gradually takes control of the
girls' look and sound, eventually giving them
their own shot in the spotlight as The Dreams.
That spotlight, however, begins to narrow in
on Deena, finally pushing the less attractive
Effie out altogether. Though the Dreams become
a crossover phenomenon, they soon realize that
the cost of fame and fortune may be higher
than they ever imagined.
Rounding out the main cast are Keith Robinson
("Fat Albert"), Sharon Leal (TV's "Boston
Public"), and three-time Tony Award winner
Hinton Battle ("Miss Saigon," "The Tap Dance
Kid," "The Wiz").
"Dreamgirls" is being
directed by Bill Condon from a screenplay he
adapted from the stage musical's original book
by Tom Eyen. An Academy Award® winner for his
screenplay for "Gods and Monsters," which he
also directed, Condon received another Oscar®
nomination for his screenplay adaptation of
"Chicago." He more recently wrote and directed
Award®-nominated producer Laurence Mark
("Jerry Maguire," "As Good As It Gets," "I,
Robot") is producing "Dreamgirls," with
Patricia Whitcher ("Memoirs of a Geisha," "The
Terminal") executive producing. The lyrics are
by Tom Eyen, with music by Henry Krieger.

Soderbergh's latest, The Good German
- "Based on the novel
by Joseph Kanon, 'The Good German' takes place

Army war correspondent Jake Geismar (George
Clooney) becomes embroiled with Lena Brandt
(Cate Blanchett), a former lover whose missing
husband is the object of a manhunt by both the
American and Russian armies. Intrigue mounts
as Jake tries to uncover the secrets Lena may
be hiding in her desperation to get herself
and her husband out of Berlin. Tully (Tobey

pool assigned to drive Jake around Berlin, has
black market connections that may be Lena's

Lady Libertine (1984)
Lady Libertine (1984) is the long awaited re-issue of "Frank and I," an
erotic film based on the anonymously penned Victorian novel of the same name.
It is basic "couples erotica" originally shot in Europe for late night
American cable showings on the Playboy Channel. Later, when it was to be
re-issued, supporting actress Sophie Favier had become a respectable TV
presenter in France and sued to prevent the re-release. She lost the case, so
we now have a chance to see Private Screening's remastered and uncut DVD.
Christopher Pearson is returning to his country estate from hunting on
horseback when he chances upon a young lad who is walking in the middle of
nowhere, clearly with no means of support. He brings the lad home, and takes a
liking to him. He is about to put the young man in a proper boarding school
and turn him into a gentleman, when the need arises to cane Frank, and he
discovers that Frank is actually Frances, a girl (Jennifer Inch). This changes
everything, and it doesn't take long until they are intimate, which puts a
damper on Pearson's relationship with his city girlfriend (Sophie Favier). He
finally convinces Favier to take charge of Frances, and turn her back into a
lady. Meanwhile, he hears her complete story, including the punishment she
received in a whorehouse because she was not willing to prostitute herself.
This film captures the spirit of Victorian era pornography, presents lovely
women completely naked and being naughty, including a famous game show host,
and even adds spanking, caning and whipping for fetish fans, all in an
immaculate and unexpurgated transfer. It's a must-see for genre fans, and
therefore a C+ on our scale.
IMDb readers say 4.6, but the new release would (or should) elevate it.

Dann reports on Rest Stop:
I have a pretty
liberal way of judging a movie. I see so many movies that I've become
pretty jaded, like most imagers, so if a movie holds my interest for the
whole time so that I never use the fast forward button, it's a pretty good
movie. Despite it's many flaws, and they are numerous, I never touched the
FF button watching this 2006 horror/thriller. That's also the reason why I
capped it even though the nudity was apparently by a body double.
On a road trip from Texas, a young couple
stops at a deserted rest stop in California. When she returns from the
bathroom, he is gone. Soon she is caught in a cat-and-mouse game with an
apparent psychopath, who alternately tries to kill her and then runs away
While this movie has plot holes as big as
a bus, it's a really good story with good acting, and a ton of suspense.
It definitely holds your interest.

Notes and collages
This is the full scene of Erica Durance topless at the lake in House of
Lori Singer in The Man With One Red Shoe, I enjoy this spy vs. spy
parody. Not a brainteaser, this film is just silly fluff. In this
particular scene Lori Singer is supposed to seduce Tom Hanks into
revealing himself as a spy (which he isn't despite circumstances which
point his way). Dabney Coleman and the rest of her own spy team watch
the seduction from behind a pane of two-way glass.
As for the dress she is wearing: wow.
...now that my collaging skills have improved I wanted to create some
better pieces of Nikki Cox in Las Vegas . This teal dress she wore is
quite an eye-catcher.
More Nikki. ...a lot of cleavage in an olive dress....

to IMDB to figure out just who the hell she was. That award often acts as a
harbinger of an Oscar nomination, but not in this case. The LA critics award
turned out to be a total fluke, and she was not even mentioned by the NY
Critics or the Golden Globes or the Waco Critics, or any other group of
award season revelers.
