Some Guys Saved Some 35MM Pornos, And What Happened Next Will Blow Your Mind

filmnoirIt’ll blow your mind if you’re a caveman and have no sense of the obvious. :-)

Inaugurated in December, Anthology Film Archives’ groundbreaking new series IN THE FLESH continues in March with a quartet of films exploring the darker side of the classic adult film genre, featuring tough-talking private eyes, deviant rapists, shadowy blackmailers, and existential crises.

Throughout the 1970s, adventurous adult film directors paid homage to their favorite film noirs with updated X-rated versions of classics like LAURA (1944) and SUNSET BOULEVARD (1950). The sexual tension created between noir anti-heroes and seductive femmes fatales could now be embellished and visualized, to the delight of both the raincoat crowd and cultured moviegoers. In addition to creating porno variants of acknowledged film classics, filmmakers began to step outside of established boundaries and challenge audience expectations. Dark and disturbing features assaulted viewers with increasing levels of violence, degradation, and horror. This decadent debauchery created a new form of noir within the genre, often referred to as ‘roughies’. Experimentation in the dark and the mysterious continued into the 1980s, before video rendered film and its genre artistry practically obsolete. AFA is proud to present four unique and compelling examples of ‘porn noir’, emerging from the shadows to provide you with a rare opportunity to see them theatrically, as they were intended to be seen.

All four one-time-only screenings will be from 35mm prints and presented by special guests who will provide revealing glimpses into the making of the films as well as the general adult film ‘Golden Age’ in New York. Guests for this series include adult filmmaker extraordinaire Larry Revene, adult film superstar Kelly Nichols, and other surprise appearances!

Curated by Casey Scott. Special thanks to Steven Morowitz (Distribpix) and Joe Rubin (Vinegar Syndrome). A very special thank you to Larry Revene for his continued support of this series.

I Didn’t Think Sex in Cars Could Be Funny, but My Mind Was Blown After Seeing This

I’m pondering writing all my blog posts like breathless Upworthy headlines.  (I fucking HATE Upworthy.)

On the other hand, I fucking LOVE Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee which I think is a great idea for a web series, and really what the web is kind of meant to do, I think.  It gives creatives the opportunity to do something lower-budget with lower stakes, and just let them have fun doing what they do best.  I’m a big fan of the casual interview between colleagues since it has the potential to strip down the artifice that usually surrounds talk show appearances, so the show is right in my sweet spot.

(My favorites, in vague order of preference: Alec Baldwin, Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner, Ricky Gervais, Louis C.K., and Patton Oswalt.  This is not to say the others are bad, but these I really liked and have actually rewatched.)

comediansSo, I was really tickled to see Lee Roy Meyers and Nate Liquor over at WoodRocket come up with Comedians in Cars Getting Sex, starring James Deen (reprising his role as Seinfeld from Meyers’ other Seinfeld parodies) and recent favorite Veruca James as Sarah Silverman.

There’s lots of good stuff over at the WoodRocket site, tho I’d hope for a bit more organization.  I was looking for a blog post or something that announced this video, but it seems like it just dropped into their video section with little fanfare.

However, what they lack on their own site, they seem to have gotten Splitsider’s attention, so they got that going for them.

Lee Roy and Nate really really nail the tone of the show, with the jaunty jazz, the fetishistic shots of the vehicle, the well-observed mannerism of Jerry throwing his head back and silently laughing while he drives.

After about three and half minutes of hit-and-miss banter between Seinfeld and Silverman, we cut to the backseat of the extended cab where James and Veruca get down to business.

There’s a couple minutes of heavy breathing and dry humping and giggling which is nice, before Veruca’s pants come off and James chows down.  Not a lot of overly porny moaning; just a lot of smiles, eye contact and happy sounds as he buries himself in her ladybits.

the greatest thing about the scene is how they interact with each other.  It’s not a faceless cock pounding into an anonymous pussy.  It’s two people having a bunch of fun in the back of a truck; which makes it a bunch of fun to watch.

They miss an opportunity for Veruca to wrap James’ rascal, leaving him to do it before he plunges into her doggy style.  There’s some neck-on-throat, if that’s your thing (or be aware, if it’s not…)

They’re able to get into a bunch of sweaty positions before they end up in reverse cowgirl with James’ pulling out and off to cum on her bush.  She orally cleans him up afterward.  Fade to black.

There are much worse ways to spend 25 minutes. If you’re a fan of any of these folks, you owe it to yourself to check this out.
