5.0 out of 5 stars Pornographic Imagination, 13 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sex Stories [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
HISTOIRES DE SEXE(S) is unique in my experience, an intelligent film which incorporates some hard-core pornography in its project. This is revolutionary and refreshing. Not surprisingly it is the work of the French intellectual feminist pornographer Ovidie. Her film evades and transcends the norms of standard American porn. It makes you think as well as watch. It is in line with Ovidie's Porno Manifesto and her Osez ... Tourner Votre Film X. And it marks a step forward from her more traditional porn work, Orgie en Noir, and Lilith. Ever since porn films were sectioned into their specialised ghetto around 1975, there have been some faltering attempts to bring art into porn and porn into art. Nine Songs and Short Bus for example. And more substantially in the work of Catherine Breillat. In this film Ovidie continues the struggle to fuse the high and the low, the mind and the body. And she brings it off with style and aplomb. Susan Sontag, who wrote on Georges Bataille's STORY OF THE EYE under the title "The Pornographic Imagination", would be pleased.
