"The Pornographer" (1999)

The Pornographer (1999) is a freshman effort from writer director Doug Atchison, staring Michael DeGood, who had done a couple of things on TV, and Katherine Cain in her first feature film. Don't let the title and the fact that Rena Riffel and Monique Parent show breasts and buns in the film lead you to believe that this is a low budget soft core about the porn industry. What it is is a well made story of one man's decent into pornography, and the consequences.

DeGood plays a young paralegal who was raised in an anti sex and anti female family who has zero experience in relating to the opposite sex, and has turned to porn and hookers for sexual outlet, but has become increasingly lonesome. When he complains to a video store clerk about the quality of some films he is returning, the clerk tells him to make his own if he doesn't like what is there. After some disastrous attempts with real women, he decides that making his own films, and doing them right, is an idea with merit. Things go well, until he connects with a major porn producer/distributor (Craig Wasson) who wants him to find and recruit new blood. He manages to start a relationship with a chance acquaintance (Caine), and decides she is the one to recruit.

Atchison made a lot of great decisions in making this film with nearly no budget. First, he got some known talent, and picked his newcomers well. Second, he listened to his cast and crew, and changed the script when they had better ideas. Third, he found an impressive number of great locations that he was allowed to use free of charge. And, probably most important, he didn't go for a look and feel he couldn't afford to shoot well. Rather, he went for a straightforward photographic approach, and no tricky, distracting lighting. The films won first place at the Arizona International Film Festival, and IMDB readers have it at 6.8/10, with a staggering 8.1/10 among males aged 41+. As it presents a rather negative view of the porn industry, that could explain the higher rating among older people with enough perspective to see the relevance of the film. It would be a good character driven drama no matter what the budget, but it is exceptional work for a zero budget indie. Strong C+.

    Charlie's French Cinema Nudity site is updated



    It was a Pittsburgh prostitute, and it was filmed more than ten years before films were invented.

    Say what?

    I've been meaning to write this up for some time, because it is a chapter in history that everyone gets wrong. And I mean everyone. Even the film "historians".

    When was the first movie nude scene filmed? This will blow your mind. The official sources usually say that Edison did his first public exhibition in April, 1896, and the Lumieres did theirs in December, 1895. But a crazy Englishman named Eadwaerd Muybridge successfully demonstrated movie projection in 1880, well known and reported at the time. Muybridge created many nude movies in the period from 1884-1886, under academic conditions, and with a massive university grant to do so. He exhibited an entire hall full of his films at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893, about three years before films were "invented"!!! Some years later, in a bit of revisionism worthy of Stalin himself, the corporate viziers of Edison decided to re-write history without Mr Muybridge. Various French and Americans, busy promoting their own subjective versions of history, were only too happy to go along.

    Muybridge proved to be too politically incorrect for everyone. He was an eccentric guy who took more than 100,000 nude photos of Pittsburgh prostitutes, and got away with killing his wife's lover at point blank range, in an admittedly premeditated crime, with dozens of witnesses.

    But he's the man who invented the movies, and he beat everyone else by 15 years or more.

     Here is his story, and some of the nude scenes he filmed 10 years before films were "invented"

    Great Stuff! Topless, rear, frontal nudity, and a sex scene from Larry Clark's "Bully". This isn't set for release until January, but these sure look like DVD 'caps to me!

    Brittany Murphy Showing some cleavage on Wednesday night's Leno. Thanks to Dai.

    Britney Spears The pop starlet and her breasts on the cover of Rolling Stone. Someone posed this question recently...what is the deal with her breasts?! They fluctuate in size almost every time you see them. I wonder if it has something to do with the tides?

    Plenty of excellent breast exposure from the movie "Torso".
    Additional comments by Dann:
    Supposedly, when this 1973 Italian slasher movie was first released, it was heavily censored except in Italy. The recently released DVD claims to contain the movie as originally released. Probably true, because not much is left to the imagination.

    Actually, even without the nudity, of which there is plenty, this would be a good slasher movie. It's well done, and twisty. The true murderer is not easily guessed before the ending, and there's plenty of action along the way.

    Viewer Mail

    In yesterday's Funhouse, one of the members requested information on Penny Johnson (formerly, Beverly, Larry's beautiful African-American assistant on The Larry Sanders Show). He said she once worked for GLOW as the wrestler, Liberty. Well, I must admit that is news to me, but what I do know is that she did a topless scene in the movie, The Hills Have Eyes 2 early in her career. The scene is short, but nice and easy to see. Has anyone ever capped it?

    Also, does anyone have caps of Jane Kaczmarek's topless scene in the movie, Wildly Available from 1996?

    The Funnies by Number 6
  • Number 6 is getting ready for "X"-mas

    - We're too late! It's already been here.
    - Mulder, I hope you know what you're doing.

    - Look, Scully, just like the other homes: Douglas fir, truncated, mounted, transformed into a shrine; halls decked with boughs of holly; stockings hung by the chimney, with care.

    - You really think someone's been here?

    - Someone or some THING.

    - Mulder, over here - it's a fruitcake.

    - Don't touch it! Those things can be lethal.

    - It's O.K. There's a note attached: "Gonna find out who's naughty and nice."

    - It's judging them, Scully. It's making a list.

    - Who? What are you talking about?

    - Ancient mythology tells of an obese humanoid entity who could travel at great speed in a craft powered by antlered servants. Once each year, near the winter solstice, this creature is said to descend from the heavens to reward its followers and punish disbeliveers with jagged chunks of anthracite.

    - But that's legend, Mulder -- a story told by parents to frighten children. Surely you don't believe it?

    - Something was here tonight, Scully. Check out the bite marks on this gingerbread man. Whatever tore through this plate of cookies was massive and in a hurry.

    - It left crumbs everywhere. And look, Mulder, this milk glass has been completely drained.

    - It gorged itself, Scully. It fed without remorse.

    - But why would they leave it milk and cookies?

    - Appeasement. Tonight is the Eve, and nothing can stop its wilding.

    - But if this thing does exist, how did it get in? The doors and windows were locked. There's no sign of forced entry.

    - Unless I miss my guess, it came through the fireplace.

    - Wait a minute, Mulder. If you're saying some huge creature landed on the roof and came down this chimney, you're crazy. The flue is barely six inches wide. Nothing could get down there.

    - But what if it could alter its shape, move in all directions at once?

    - You mean, like a bowl full of jelly?

    - Exactly. Scully, I've never told anyone this, but when I was a child my home was visited. I saw the creature. It had long white strips of fur surrounding its ruddy, misshapen head. Its bloated torso was red and white. I'll never forget the horror. I turned away, and when I looked back it had somehow taken on the facial features of my father.

    - Impossible.

    - I know what I saw. And that night it read my mind. It brought me a Mr. Potato Head, Scully. IT KNEW THAT I WANTED A MR. POTATO HEAD!

    - I'm sorry, Mulder, but you're asking me to disregard the laws of physics. You want me to believe in some supernatural being who soars across the skies and brings gifts to good little girls and boys. Listen to what you're saying. Do you understand the repercussions? If this gets out, they'll close the X-files.

    - Scully, listen to me: It knows when you're sleeping. It knows when you're awake.

    - But we have no proof.

    - Last year, on this exact date, SETI radio telescopes detected bogeys in the airspace over twenty-seven states. The White House ordered a Condition Red.

    - But that was a meteor shower.

    - Officially. Two days ago, eight prized Scandinavian reindeer vanished from the National Zoo, in Washington, D.C. Nobody - not even the zookeeper was told about it. The government doesn't want people to know about Project Kringle. They fear that if this thing is proved to exist the public will stop spending half its annual income in a holiday shopping frenzy. Retail markets will collapse. Scully, they cannot let the world believe this creature lives. There's too much at stake. They'll do whatever it takes to insure another silent night.

    - Mulder, I --

    - Sh-h-h. Do you hear what I hear?

    - On the roof. It sounds like . . . a clatter.

    - The truth is up there. Let's see what's the matter.

    Simply animal

    A SEX scene between Halle Berry and Billy Bob Thornton in their new movie has been shortened because it's too raunchy. "Monster's Ball" director Marc Foster had to cut a full minute from their on-screen romp to satisfy censors. Berry's character hasn't had sex for 11 years because her husband's on death row. Thornton plays a prison guard with a penchant for hookers. "He has been having these 15-minute episodes with a prostitute, so his love life is nothing special," Berry tells Entertainment Weekly. "So when they come together, it's just animal."
