It's unlikely there'll be a more beautifully shot vid released all year than porn stylist supreme Michael Ninn's Fade to Blue.
Lensed on location at some remote desert site, the tape consists of a series of magnificently produced sexual vignettes glued together by narrator Juli Ashton's moody remembrances of her character's past experiences there.
The result is superior couples' fare, the near-perfect vehicle to watch with one's lover prior to getting down and dirty. Those with harder-edged tastes, though, may not find the sex raw enough for solo flights of masturbatory fancy.
But if that is the goal of viewing the tape, they should check out its latter half. That's where the temperatures really start to rise.
Scene five has blond, beautiful, boner-producing Houston, decked out in pearls, lingerie and heels, sucking and fucking Billy Glide on the hood of a car.
Even she, however, is eclipsed in the next scene by a rare appearance from adult legend Amber Lynn. Looking better than ever after all these years, she and Ashton engage in a hot girl-girl that culminates in the latter fucking the former's oh-so-fine ass with a vibrator.
As an extra added bonus, Lynn sticks around for the closer in which Ashton gets d.p.'d by Earl Slate and James Bonn. Indeed, perhaps the hottest image in the entire vid is of Lynn, lusciously attired in a pin-striped power suit, sucking away on a 10-inch howitzer of a stogie, coolly leering from a range of up close and personal as Ashton takes both studs' loads on her kisser. We can only hope that the Blond One won't make herself scarce in the future.
As for the near future, Fade to Blue, with its striking images - including that of a formal wear-garbed couple fucking on a baby grand piano amid Greco-Roman pillars under a blazing clue desert sky - is a damn near lock to garner a Best Videography nomination come year's end.
