Product Description

Product Description

When film buff Sean rents gay porn video 'Citizen Cum' by mistake, he falls in love with its leading man Johnny Rebel and decides to try and meet him in the flesh. Sean luckily then manages to get a job as Johnny's fluffer, performing oral sex on his idol in order to get him ready for his big scenes; but he also finds out that Johnny is straight and involved with a lap-dancer called Babylon. Nevertheless, when Johnny's drug addiction gets him into big trouble, Sean is the one ready to help out.

From Amazon.co.uk

Wash Westmoreland's intelligent social comedy The Fluffer explores the pornography industry and makes some interesting points about the way it serves dreams and hardens hearts. But it also has a streak of sentimentality which stops the various elements quite coming together.

Aspiring cinematographer Sean (Michael Cunio) becomes obsessed with male porn star Johnny Rebel/Mickey, and takes a job with Janus Films partly to get to know him. In the event, his duties include more than camera work, such as preparing Mickey's occasionally flaccid member for its big moments. The confused and exploitative Mickey identifies as heterosexual--yet he likes Sean a lot, and Sean's feelings for him are more or less obvious. In one of the film's most disturbing sequences, Sean goes to the club where Mickey's pregnant lover Babylon works and hires her for a lap dance; it is never entirely clear to what extent Babylon understands the situation. The film ends up avoiding psychological complexity for a sudden burst of crass noir gestures as Mickey kills a producer and gets Sean to drive him to Mexico; up to this last reel or so, however, it is intelligent and often perceptive, though never remarkably so. Debbie Harry has an impressive cameo as Babylon's world-weary boss and mentor; Adina Porter is good as Sean's lesbian confidante.

On the DVD: The Fluffer on disc has a slightly flat Dolby 5.1 soundtrack which suddenly becomes blaring in a couple of party and nightclub sequences; it is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen. The special features are limited to a theatrical trailer, filmographies for the cast and production notes. --Roz Kaveney

THE FLUFFER

(USA - 2001)

Aspect ratio: 1.85:1
Theatrical soundtrack: Dolby Stereo SR

Characterized by its makers as a study of 'internalized homophobia', THE FLUFFER charts the progress of naive cutie Michael Cunio who takes employment at a low-rent porn company to indulge his unrequited passion for 'Johnny Rebel' (ultra-hunky Scott Gurney), a gay-for-pay superstud whose private life is slowly falling apart. Based on his own experiences as a director in the skin trade, writer and co-helmer Wash Westmoreland (NAKED HIGHWAY) portrays the world of porn as an industry much like any other, administered by ruthless bigwigs less concerned with 'art' than keeping the 'money shot' in focus (!). Accordingly, Cunio suffers for his infatuation with Gurney, whose monstrous ego leads them both down some pretty unsavoury pathways, including drugs and murder, though the script is quick to point out that such problems aren't confined exclusively to the porn business.

Despite the best efforts of West and co-director Richard Glatzer (GRIEF), and despite its success in various film festivals, THE FLUFFER seems a little flat and inconsequential. Most of the secondary characters are cold and unlikeable, and 'Johnny Rebel' himself proves to be completely undeserving of the worship he generates from those around him. As a result, the narrative maintains an emotional distance, despite a number of climactic revelations which lead to an 'understanding' of sorts between Cunio and Gurney during their brief stopover in a motel in Mexico (probably the best scene in the movie).

This review is of the region 1 director's cut.
Well firstly, the "obvious" comparison with "Boogie Nights" is not particularly appropriate. Whilst "Boogie Nights" weakens and ultimately fails when moving away from the world of the "skin flicks" environment, "The Fluffer" goes from strength to strength in its characterisations and story focus of the three principal subjects.
In this writer's opinion, the movie bears a more appropriate and favourable comparison with "The Player" in terms of its production values, storyline and direction. Where "The Fluffer" wins hands down is in its somewhat more mature and balanced examination of not dissimilar subject matter and importantly the effects which "Hollywood lifestyle" can have on its various characters. In many ways these two excellent films are two sides of the same coin.
For a "low budget" film, the production values are exceptionally high. The intelligent script, sets and casting are at all times on the button. The quality performances of the principal and supporting actors are always and without exception utterly believable and the direction shows an understanding and style sadly lacking in most mainstream movies.
Sean Gurney, irresistible, a delight on the eye throughout the film, provides the lynchpin of the movie. A modern day Mitchum, his "presence" and credible persona engenders the very difficult role upon which the parts of Michael Cunio and Roxanne Day and their main stories depend.

There are not many films that focus on the world of the fluffer, a profession that might seem appealing but probably isn't in practice (it consists of orally reviving the flagging interest of porn actors). In fact, I wonder how many people are actually employed to do this ... If the film seems a little schematic it probably gets the porn industry quite accurately, at least as far as the bigger studios are concerned. Clearly many people who get involved are going to succumb to the kind of downward spiral shown here in the career of Johnny Rebel, but the same could be said of any industry where fame comes quickly to those who have a natural ability. One of the good things about the film is the way it doesn't condemn out of hand, for instance there is a black lesbian girl who works at Janus Films who is very likeable, and the main character, Sean, is clearly sympathetic. A real porn star, Cole Tucker, drafted in to replace the unreliable Johnny also gives off a good vibe, although we don't see him much. Equally Johnny's girlfriend, the exotically named Babylon, seems like the kind of person who could easily have a much more pleasant life, here working as a stripper, and turned down by less than sympathetic casting directors for more 'respectable' work. Her only blind spot is being sold on Johnny. However the film seems to lack something, and compared to, say, Boogie Nights, it is a lot less fun, while the gain in substance is not appreciable. It makes you wonder whether the difference between the 70s and the 90s might be a key factor, because the industry had lost its novelty and unclouded pre-Aids insouciance. It all seems much harder-edged in The Fluffer, and the shallowness of Johnny ultimately works against the film, because he's the kind of person who will never be any different.Read more ›
