Storyline

Documentary about the way sex was and is deliberately used in cinema to influence and manipulate human behaviour and development. This documentary uses real examples including the decline of Mae West's career; the introduction of a ratings system; and enforced creative controls, eventually leading to a billion dollar sub-culture of pornography and art-house movies. Written by Mardi Sandford

Reasonable treatment of the subject
5 August 2004 | by penseurSee all my reviews

I watched this despite apprehensions given that the production company is noted for its magazine photos of young women with breasts pumped full of silicon and imperfections airbrushed away. However, the film was reasonably good as far as it went, with the main problem being that it couldn't really do much justice to the subject in 101 minutes. But it was a good attempt at documenting the most famous feature films that have screened in cinemas noted for their erotic scenes. Some actresses feature rather disproportionately, Rachel Welch and Elizabeth Taylor particularly, while others meriting some attention received little or none. Compiling all the sexiest moments in cinema is probably an undertaking Playboy with its financial resources could embark upon and make a DVD box set of.
