Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 1 October 2011
Blue Movie is intended to be a biting satire of Hollywood's thirst for excess and the exploitation of actors and actresses by world-weary, seen-it-all producers. Southern's vehicle for doing this is the biggest-budget porn film ever made: The Faces of Love, set in Liechtenstein as the principality plans to use it as a means to boost tourism, and featuring some of the highest-paid actresses of the day.

It's a fun if bizarre concept, but anyone expecting a clever send-up of the entertainment industry is going to be fairly underwhelmed. It's one sex scene after the next, and Southern has to keep upping the ante to sustain the reader's interest - thus we move from lesbianism to gang-banging to incest to necrophilia. Frankly, it's all pretty tasteless and mindless. Fine if you like to get your kicks from zany erotic literature, but Southern's point (if he had one) just gets lost under the smut.
