Critical Rating: AAAA
With steely Bette Davis eyes that could burn ice princesses in a porn valley micro second, Mistress Arcadia is disturbingly and satisfyingly dark through several scenes. She flexes her skills and licks away the painful, salty tears of submissives who never see what is just round the corner.
In contrast, the dominatrix in the second scene shows weak work, suffused with indecision, loud repetitive expletives, and little warm-up let alone direction. Yet the delightful Summer Cummings, a wide eyed doll resplendent with bows and ample cleavage, learns quickly that dolls are merely meant to be seen and not heard.
Seamless editing adds a surreal quality, emphasizing the disc's sinister emotional undercurrent.
Pre-noms: Best Editing – Video, Stitch Mahoney.
Retailing: Summers Cummings still a hit among BDSM fans.
