For fans of Asians... and all things outr?.
The Asians aren't the only strange thing about this visionary work from scripter/director (and former critic and sometime performer) David Aaron Clark - and the porn viewing audience is the better for it. This vid's documentary/cinema verité style, full of new music from techno to hip-hop (much of it courtesy of Plague Dogs), and low angles not afraid of the diagonal, is definitely not your dad's pornography.
After an intriguing set of opening titles, Clark deals with the Taoist adage of the butterfly, as the viewer is led to question whether Brian Surewood is dreaming of being molested by leather-clad Kianna and awake when he approaches her in her bed (for foot-worship, kissing, pussy-licking, an extra-drippy b.j. and super-slow, sensual mish, reverse cowgirl and doggie) - or is the only reality the cat on his chest and the ringing of the grandfather clock?
Surewood himself has no time to ponder that, as he jumps in his classic car and heads to a nightclub - where he finds Arriko already delivering oral satisfaction to Damien Michaels and Brick Majors - an activity which Surewood quickly joins. Later, Surewood finds himself at a video arcade, engaged in a "shoot out" with China Barbi that involves horsie action by the game machines, some nude dancing, anal horsie, and a facial finish.
The story leaves Surewood for a time, as the camera finds its way to Damien Michaels' apartment, its corner locker-room set, and obliging little Manilla. The tiny Filipina first poses for the camera, then engages in 69 with Michaels, plus mish, cowgirl, doggie and toe-sucking before the facial finish.
The finale has Surewood driving into the desert, where he meets nomad Jade-blue Eclipse (a well-known San Francisco performance artist and dancer) when she sets off his car alarm. After a slow-motion jujitsu match, in which Surewood is heavily outclassed, the lady lays him down, puts a condom on his cock with her mouth, then proceeds to ride him cowgirl style. Horsie, doggie and mish follow, with even a little pile-driver action, before he cums on her tits... and then she kills him? The viewer may never know.
What the viewer will know, however, is that Clark is a director to watch, and that this tape should be nominated for Best Ethnic-Themed Video.
