In recent years there has been a minor, yet noticeable, trend in 'gay-themed' films to embrace the Gothic and supernatural. To date, the finest examples of this are independent shorts: "Cowboy", "Love Bite", "Freunde", "Gay Zombie" and "Bugcrush". Writer/director David Kittredge's PORNOGRAPHY: A THRILLER takes this trend feature-length.

A film in three Acts, the stage is set in 1995. Ex-porn star Mark Anton is offered $20,000 by his former manager/producer to attend a one-off, private session for a client. Having attempted to 'clean-up' his image, Mark is reluctant, but the lure of the cash is too great. It soon becomes clear that the mysterious client wants more from Mark than the latter is prepared to give - and that a higher price will be exacted.

Act Two is set in New York, 14 years later. A freelance writer who is working on a book about the porn industry moves into a new apartment with his boyfriend. As his research uncovers rumours surrounding Mark Anton and a snuff film, the supernatural rears its head; possession and poltergeist-style happenings begin to disrupt the writer's days, suggesting a connection between his new apartment and Mark Anton.

Act Three flips to L.A. Successful porn star Matt Stevens wants to move into directing. He 'dreams' a screenplay: The Story of Mark Anton, about the latter's unexplained disappearance. As he begins filming, he becomes obsessed with discovering what happened to Mark, and gradually his boundaries between dream, fantasy and wakefulness dissolve.

PORNOGRAPHY: A THRILLER will become one of the most talked-about independent films of the year.

This is a very strange but very good independent film starring gay actor Mathew Montgomery (Redwoods). It is not my usual genre that being thriller/horror, but I do like an occasional foray into the unknown (except `chic - lit', some things are best left as mysteries).

This is a dark brooding tale of the porn industry, the people that inhabit, watch and feed off of it. It has a menacing quality that really did have me feeling awkward in a good way through out, like going to a fetish club and feeling over dressed. The story is told in three distinct parts that reference each other. It tells the tale of a porn star from the days of VHS, who made a big splash (sorry awful pun) with his first `video' and then had to suffer the laws of diminishing marginal returns with his follow ups.

His old agent calls him in for a private client 'interview' for a not inconsiderable sum, and he goes along with it after seeking some medieval retribution on his sleazy former agent. He then disappears completely from view. The story is picked up by a writer who is doing a book about the porn industry and what motivates its participants. He gets hooked on what became of our aforementioned hero and then gets drawn into a web of intrigue, snuff movies and misplaced desires. It also features a new 'rising'(oops I did it again)porn star who wants to make a porn film about the same disappeared guy - spooky, and it is.

This is a very atmospheric, moody, and sometimes painful film to watch. The sex that is shown is passion less and functionary and pretty much reflects what you get with porn, although I am no aficionado (but getting there, with determined practice!). It is however, well made, well acted and scarily believable which is why it works. With an 18 cert this is not really for everyone, but it is certainly one for the collection of anyone into serious gay themed films.

This film is a myth and the object of a cult. Desire among gay people, desire to sexually do absolutely all one may desire, but also desire that everything that someone else might desire to do to one submissive subject may be done. It tries to show that love, any love I guess, gay love here, has that kind of absolute submissive dimension and that this submissive dimension may be exploited to the extreme by some who know there is an audience for that kind of kinky adventure. Is the film well done? Probably and after a while we lose track of the characters and the places, from New York to California and back again. We seem to be mixing old episodes and recent ones and present ones and maybe future one. We lose track of time and that is important because that kind of desire is so total and absolute that there is no limit to it, no time limit, no space limit, no limit whatsoever. That discourse is interesting because that is the very definition of any passion. What is surprising in this film is that it is interspersed with some sex scenes that are in no way really artistic, nor crude enough to be realistic. The films seems to prove what is said somewhere that any sex video, even snuff videos are fake, are not true. In other words there the film stops being realistic at all. Because that is not true. And there is a market for that kind of stuff, even for the real thing to be performed, if we can say so, in front of your very eyes. But what's more this sadism that the film seems to push aside is also a real element in many societies.Read more ›
