Adore (2013)- R

This is a provocative and well produced film. It adds a new definition to the “cougar” experience. This film explores the very bounties of intimacy within a family. In the end it’s complicated. The story is of two “best of friends” mothers each having a son. We watch as the boys grow up to be young men ready for college. Each mother however, establishes a sexual relation with the son of the other mother. The mothers are at first shocked with their behavior. Later, they evolve into full enjoyment of the erotic adventure. The film crosses all the lines of family and generational boundaries.  The landscape photography and erotic photography is beautiful. This “cougar” theme is very popular in porn. The film illustrates a dark side of this fantasy where the young men lack the maturity to manage this complexity. The film is very good and I recommend it. It is available on Netflix. 12/15/17

Room in Rome (2010)- NR

This is a 1 hr. 47 minute file, where all but 10 minutes is filmed in the same room with two naked women. The film shifts back and forth from the two women making love to each woman reveling secrets. Room in Rome is a beautiful and very erotic film. It is the story of two young women who meet for a single night encounter. The close ups of each woman simply touching the face of the other and of long enjoyable kisses are both subtle and highly erotic. But the film is also so much more. The director Julio Medem captures all the suggestive shadows of two beautiful women in a dimly light exotic Rome hotel room. Through the women remain nude throughout the film; the erotic shadows lessen as the past painful secrets of the women are revealed. The haunting soundtrack from Russian Red with the hit single “Loving Strangers” creates a perfect mood for this film. I first saw and reviewed this film in 2012. It was a pleasure to see it again. The film is available on Netflix. 11/22/17

I Am Loved 2009 R

Luca Guadagnino’s film, I Am Loved, explores the many sides of sensuality. His hand held camera zooms in for close-ups of eating shrimp soup, bees on flowers and nipples during love making and so much more. The film contains erotic and sensual passion, all unfortunately centered around the destruction of an Italian family. The film’s setting is Tuscany. I recently visited this area and was likewise intoxicated by the delicious food and sensual beauty of the art. The film translates this sensuality into erotic passion of a married mature woman for a young man. This Italian film is presented with sub-titles and at times is slow moving. Nonetheless, I recommend it. The film is available on Netflix. 11/6/17

Gia 1998 R

This film is available on Amazon Prime. It is an amazing portrayal by Angelina Jolie both in terms of acting and erotic content. The movie encouraged me to see other films by Angelina Jolie. The love scenes of Angelina and Elizabeth Mitchell are very erotic and well filmed. Gia represented many boundaries and movements currently facing society (feminism, AIDS, public sexuality, child abuse, domestic violence etc.) This is a sad story but a must-watch. 11/6/17

The Handmaden 2016 NR

This film is an epic erotic drama based on an interchanging plot of victim and victimize. The roles change. You never really know the story until it ends, and then you are not sure. The story centers on classical Asian eroticism and sadomasochism. The sex between the two key women is very erotic. The filming is beautiful. The film is divided into 3 long parts; however it is worth the journey. This is an excellent film and in the end a tribute to feminism. 9/6/17
