Storyline

Henning is a fashion photographer driven by visions of artistic glory. He is encouraged by a literary agent to produce a volume of erotic nudes and works to create the perfect layout with his favorite model, Leslie. All seems to be going well until the mysterious Joyce appears; dark and sensual, Joyce plays games with the photographer's ego, driving a wedge between Henning and Leslie and seducing one of his other models. Blinded by his own ambitions, Henning is unable to see the ruinous web that Joyce is weaving. Written by Anonymous

All the Sins of Sodom (1968)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Photographer Daryl (Dan Machuen) uses his connections to beautiful women to sleep with as many as he can. However, after sleeping with them he wants nothing else to do with them but that changes after hooking up with Leslie (Maria Lease). Soon Daryl allows a homeless woman (Sue Akers) to move in with him and before long more sins follow.

The more films from Joseph W. Sarno that I watch the more I realize that he was probably meant to be born in Europe where he'd probably be a lot more appreciated. Everyone talks about the way Sarno is like a European director and many like to compare his moody films to those of Ingmar Bergman. Now, there's no way, shape or form that Sarno is as great as Bergman but there's no question that his movies are a notch above what you typical see out of the genre.

ALL THE SINS OF SODOM isn't a complete success but there's still quite a bit of good throughout the movie starting with the performances. I really thought Machuen was extremely good in the lead role and he had no problem making you believe he was this character. I thought Lease was also very good in her role as was Akers. The three of them share a great and twisted chemistry and this here certainly helps keep the film moving. I'd also argue that the cinematography was drop dead gorgeous and was the highlight of the entire picture.

There were still some flaws including the fact that there's a bit too much plot and not enough of it really sticks to where you deeply care for any of the characters. Still, Sarno has created another moody film that his fans will enjoy.
