HIgh Heels will be snapped up by any fan of Blake\'s recent work, and is an excellent tape to recommend to the couple who wants to relax. Rob Black, this ain\'t!
Andrew Blake has done it again. He's collected four gorgeous women, including longtime favorite Dahlia Grey and doe-eyed newcomer Kelly Havel (that's her on the box cover) and put them in highly attractive surroundings, from white-tiled Roman baths to lush gardens outside grand estates; from city streets to marble-column esplanades to a balcony opposite the Coliseum. The soundtrack seems, at times, heavily influenced by middle-eastern music, with much reliance on the dulcimer; but even then, "ambient" sounds like the clack-clack of a freight train occasionally intrude, often to emphasize the urban setting. The images fade from black-and-white to color; from delicate touching to light bondage to hardcore lesbian pleasuring (including a dildo or vibrator or two).
Trying to describe this feature too minutely would be fruitless; everything here is image coupled with sensuality. The feature doesn't so much have "scenes" as moods. Some memorable moments include Grey rubbing, fingering and preparing to shave Havel';s pussy in the spa, and late, similar treatment in front of the bathroom sink and mirror; and Havel returning the favor, sans shave cream, using a lighted Lucite dildo. Then there's the "Slave Me" section, featuring Grey taking liberties with a strung-up Petrokova, which develops into a four-way lick session; Havel lapping cream from a china dish as Grey, watching, holds the chain to Havel's collar. Grey tearing Havel's nylon bodystocking, then lightly spanking her with a cat o' nine tails, all in black-and-white, makes a hot contrast to an intercut, color fingering-and licking between Havel and her blond partner.
Strangely, the "high heels" of the title are not that much in evidence, but that's more attributable to Blake's artistry as a director that any wish to deprive those foot fetishists who might have bought the tape solely on its title. Don't worry; feet play substantial roles in the action, as when one lovely uses her stocking-clad toes to play with another's pussy.
The movie scores half a dozen prenoms, from Best All-Sex Film to Best All-Girl Feature to Best Editing to BEst Music to Best Cinematography to Best Art Direction, and begs favorable comparisons to the now-classic Zazel.
