3.0 out of 5 stars Stale cheesecake anyone?, 21 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Her Private Hell (BFI Flipside) (DVD + Blu-ray) (DVD)
More flotsam and jetsom from the 60s washed up and collected by Flipside. No treasure to be found in this release just the equivalent of a quaint old beer can with a half nudey woman on the back. This is a mercifully short, black and white 'expose' of the seedy side of the fashion photography business in the UK circa 1967. These days its hard to get too worked up about a topless photo being published on the sly but here its presented as a moral outrage of the first degree. Compared to the likes of Permissive, this is a pint of mild - hard to believe it broke box office records in London, how desperate were people for a glimpse of skin in those days?! Problems with this movie - the lead actress sounds like Bela Lugosi and fails to convince as a sex bomb. The cast is prone to breaking into 'groovy' 60s style dancing (frugging?!) every time the plot lags (ie every 10 minutes or so). There's a bafflingly irrelevant plot twist at the end that leaves the viewer vaguely annoyed. Still, its watchable enough and the good old BFI have dug out some extra naughty bits for the extras, including a nude modelling doc that's well worth a look. Good context setting interviews too with cast and crew plus 2 shorts I haven't watched yet, so all in all a good package of a hum drum movie.
