"Wicked Pursuits"

Wicked Pursuits (2003) is a direct to video written and directed by Timothy Taylor, based on the novel Confederate Saber, written by Timothy Taylor. Ilona Grinberg, and Mary McCallum are bisexual, and living with their mutual lover. To make this relationship unusual, they make McCallum black, and Grindberg Caucasian, and set it in the south. There lover is stabbed through the heart through their screen door with an antique saber, and the two women set out to solve the crime, as the police don't seem very interested.

Up to this point, it is a possibly entertaining set-up for a who dunnit, but the film gets positively weird. Grinberg is an immigrant from Russia, and long scenes are devoted to her background, although said background has very little to do with the murder plot. They all seem to have a spanking fetish, although it is never explained. The solution to the mystery comes completely out of left field. If the film has any message, it was totally lost on me.

Grinberg and McCallum both show breasts, and we see a right breast from Katie Dukes when Grindberg shoots her biker master, then attaches a dog chain to her nipple ring, hauls her into a motel room, and makes her talk. It is never explained why she would have useful information, and we don't hear what she says.

There is almost nothing available at IMDB. I had assumed from the title that this was a soft core. After watching it, I wish it had been. The plot and acting would probably have been better. This is a D at best. Although it is oddly lit, and some scenes are way over-exposed using ambient lighting, it looks professional, otherwise I would score it lower.

    Charlie's French Cinema Nudity site has been updated. Four words: Monica Bellucci frontal nudity.



    Various films:

    • Kristanna Loken in T3 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). I have written about this in the past. I did additional images because I got a copy of the full screen version of the DVD, and that version has much more nudity.
    • Tara Fitzgerald in I Capture the Castle. (1, 2, 3)
    • Sienna Guillory (aka Helen of Troy) in The Principles of Lust.
    • Patsy Kensit in The One and Only
    • I looked at Girl with a Pearl Earring, a possible Oscar candidate, especially for cinematography. No nudity.

    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.

    • Dominique Sanda, the French actress going full frontal in "L'Ereditą Ferramonti" aka "The Inheritance" (1976).

    • Kelly McGillis, topless and full frontal in a dark scene from the movie "Cat Chaser" (1989).

    Be sure to pay Graphic Response a visit at his website.

    'Caps and comments by Brainscan:

    First, from the Italian-made movie... entitled Millions in this here country... we have Alexandra Paul topless (an apt adjective in more ways than one), a legs-up-to-her-ears Carol Alt and what looks very much like a butt nekkid body double for Catherine Hickland. And an a triplet of unknowns sunning themselves on the yacht that all Italians own.

    From Gun Crazy, Drew Barrymore's behind and some pokitude from her and Ione Skye, looking righteous in a thin, tight-fitting white thingie.

    Next up...a gaggle of strippers in The Killing of a Chinese Bookie. They are Alice Friedland, Carol Warren (in large, red pasties, for heaven's sake) Derna Wong Davis, Donna Marie Gordon and Tricia Pelham. It took more than one watching to figure out who was whom and the movie was just not good enough to warrant more than one watching... or even one, for that matter.

    Last up are the non-Hefmates of 10 to Midnight.

    June Gilbert plays a victim, caught in the act of boffing her boyfriend and then chased through the woods in her birthday suit. One of the reasons this movie is so distasteful (one of 134 reasons) is the long, lingering scenes of women scared witless. I hate that shit, 'specially when it ruins a nekkid performance by a really nice looking gal.

    Patti Tippo as a coed also caught boffing her boyfriend, but this time interrupted by a good guy (played by Andrew Stevens). Too bad Mr. Stevens; first name isn't Corey, 'cuz then we'd have three of them to make fun of.

    I cannot let today's post end without sincerest congrats and many thanks to Tuna for his milestone of movie captures. To put his efforts into some perspective, these posts of mine represent something close to the 200th movie, 700th performance by the 540th actress that I've managed to capture... which is roughly one tenth of Tuna's output. Now I can tell you how what went into my measly contribution, so to multiply it by ten???!!! The only one who is in the same league is JohnnyWeb. Without them we would have a much poorer world to live in.

    Claire Forlani
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19)

    The "Mallrats" star gets a little nekkid in scenes from her fist movie, "Gypsy Eyes" (1992). The then 20 year old Forlani looked gorgeous, and showed breasts, bum and a little bush.

    Tara Fitzgerald
    Romola Garai
    Rose Byrne

    From the UK movie "I Capture the Castle". Fitzgerald is topless and the other two both show partial nudity. Nice work by C2000 since this movie isn't set to be released on DVD until December 23.

    Johnny Moronic
    Taking C2000's find one step further with continued coverage of "I Capture The Castle" (2003).

    'Caps and additional comments by Johnny Moronic:

    Based on a book from the 101 Dalmations author Dodie Smith, this tale of love and loss and other period crap features 2 lovely ladies... and Tara Fitzgerald who seems to be naked in everything, even in this PG rated film!
