You can safely stock multiple copies of this one. It has the usual Vivid big budget and nice marketing, but it should appeal to tastes across the board with its high volume of nasty sex.
You think Europe, you think Private. But director Paul Thomas, with the help of producers Anita Rinaldi (Planet Sexxx) and Gianfranco Romagnoli, has fashioned his own Euro-film. Shot in and around Budapest, Talent Scout is the story of an American agent (Bobby Vitale) who travels to Hungary to set up screen tests, and it resonates with the pulsating sex European films are known for. With beautiful women, lush production values and an intriguing plot, this is one of the best films of 1999.
Vitale is a strong Best Actor candidate for his work as the scout, as he plays his seedy role with relish. The lovely Olga Rios, who has a perfect natural body, lights up the screen whenever she appears. Her sex scenes with Vitale -- one a blowjob and the other a hearty fucking -- are superb. As the local policeman on Vitale's case and part of the complex love triangle that serves as the film's narrative force, David Perry gets a pre-nom for Best Supporting Actor.
The best scene, a bath and massage orgy, occurs near the end of the film, and features great anal, tons of fucking and oral cum shots. Two Evas (Braun and Black) also turn in stunning sexual performances. But it's gorgeous Rios who steals your heart with another scene, out in a field with an army guy, combining tease with her great oral skills and sumptuous hardcore.
Shot indoors and outdoors, with several scenes in the Hungarian countryside, Talent Scout has the look of a European art film. Nice pacing, clean editing and minimal music give this film its foreign flavor. Excellent, erotic and highly recommended.
