"Sexy Movie"

Sexy Movie (2003) is a made for Video/cable soft core that does it right. A fledgling film maker is working on a film in hopes of winning a fellowship. When his girlfriend, Dawn Arellano, refuses to pose in her bra, then tries to bribe him into giving up film making and become an accountant, he has to start over, and he is out of cash. Then he gets a chance to fill in as camera man on someone else's production. When he gets there, he discovers it is a porno, and ends up directing. WHen his room mate finds out, he coerces him into making more.

This film is full of attractive women showing everything, including gyno-cam shots, masturbating, and having hot simulated sex. Lighting, for the most part, is good, the plot moves along at a reasonable pace, so the sex never gets boring, and the entire thing is played in a spirit of good fun. Tonight, we have images of Dawn Arellano in the opening sex scene, and Amber Ambrose, first in a solo masturbation scene, then later having sex with our hero. Tomorrow, lots more images of naked women, and the rest of the review.

    The Cooler (2003)

    The Cooler is a brand-spankin' new film which is not even in wide distribution yet. I will review it tomorrow. I'm pressed for time at this moment.

    More important than my comments is the fact that Maria Bello got very naked. As Tuna and Brainscan like to say, it's a Three B performance, and we have the goods

    • My caps of Bello (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)

    • Random showgirls

    • These are additional caps of Bello from a capper named LC. He did one 4x4 collage, and I cut it into four 2x2s. (1, 2, 3, 4)


    21 Grams (2003)

    Also in theaters right now.

    George Orwell observed that by age fifty, everyone has the face he deserves. Sean Penn seems to be living proof of that adage. Only 43, Penn has a wrinkled, world-weary countenance which makes him look like a sailor who has worked three decades in the Caribbean sun by day, while drinking and smoking himself into oblivion every night. That face shows every grimace he made when his shoulders could not carry the world's weight. It expresses the pain of a man who has borne more sorrows than merely his own.

    And you have to figure being married to Madonna didn't help a lot, either.

    In fact, the Madonna thing probably explains about 98% of the face thing.

    If there is anyone whose face is more weather-beaten and craggy than Penn's, it is Benicio del Toro, with his deep-set eyes, and the deeper bags beneath them.

    The Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu knew exactly what to do to get the most impact from those two craggy faces. He shot them with a grainy technique, supported by the harshest lighting imaginable - direct incandescent bulbs, glaring yellows, nauseous greens. In this cinematography, those two men look like horror villains. That was intentional. Penn's heart failed, then he got a heart transplant and that heart failed. Of course, the fact that the character smokes at every possible opportunity contributed to the malignancy. Del Toro is a chronic offender who is trying to make himself a better person through religion.

    The third major character is played by Naomi Watts, a woman who connects the two men in tragedy. Watts loses her husband and her daughters to a hit-and-run driver (Del Toro). After the accident, her husband's heart is transplanted into Penn's chest. When Penn is back on his feet, the three characters start to circle around one another , as if performing a ritual dance of death until the inevitable confrontation.

    It's a good movie, but it's an art movie. In addition to an unbroken string of tragedies, and a grainy de-saturated look, the film uses a non-chronological time progression which is very similar to Atom Egoyan's narrative technique in The Sweet Hereafter, or Sergio Leone's in Once Upon a Time in America. I love both of those films, but I like this one less.

    Leone and Egoyan are artists who told their stories in a compelling way, using the puzzle technique to drive the curiosity of the viewer, and backing the narrative with perfect cinematography and music. More important, they know that gains are balanced with losses. Iñárritu is less experienced than those two were when they made their masterpieces. For Egoyan and Leone, those complex films came after long careers during which they learned what would work. This is only Iñárritu's second film, his first in English. He's talented, but he just seems to milk the script for every drop of over-the-top tragedy.

    Name something bad that could happen to these characters, and the script uses it, as if the death of two little girls wasn't significant enough to warrant a movie on its own. Penn has always exploited and cheated on his wife, and he goes right back to it after his transplant, despite her having cared for him as he was failing. Watts is a former party girl who lapses back into drug abuse when her family dies. This means that her blood is not suitable later, when Penn needs a transfusion. As her drug abuse increases, she becomes obsessed with killing Del Toro.  Del Toro himself doesn't mind that idea. He is suicidal, probably homicidal, delusional, beats his son, and is desperate to punish himself for what he has done to Watts's family. Del Toro has his own family, and they sink further into despair when he loses his will to live.

    I guess that's enough info to tell you whether you would like this movie. If that's your kind of material, it is a film much praised by the critics. It isn't my kind of material - too unbalanced, too solemn, trying too hard to say, "Look at me, I'm important."

    And I don't get it on the film's budget. I'd like to know what Iñárritu did with the $20 million dollars this film was said to cost. The scenes are mostly talking heads, and there are no effects or stunts. I realize that the cheap, grainy, desaturated, hand-held look is not "cheap" filmmaking, but an aesthetic that the director created on purpose, but the film looks like it could have been made for three million dollars. Lost in Translation looks bigger than this film, for example, and was filed in ultra-pricey Tokyo, and that film was made for four million.

    So what's the deal? Did 19 of the 21 grams go for salaries?

    Here are the latest movie reviews available at

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    The young Canadian actress topless in scenes from episodes of the made for Cinemax series "Beggars and Choosers". This series about the work and lives of Hollywood TV executives was one of my favorite shows for a while...not just because it poked fun at Hollywood types, but there was also great nudity from time to time. Hopefully they'll get this out on DVD soon.

    Jessica Alba No goodies, but Alba looks gorgeous as always during a recent appearance on Letterman.
