Alex De Renzy knows all the right moves when it comes to shooting a sex scene. His selective camera angles are usually on target, capturing the appropriate moment of ecstatic bliss. He knows how to build a scene to a feverish sexual pitch, and you can sense a real heat between performers when he's behind the camera.
Over the last few years veteran De Renzy has concentrated on a series of segmented, all-sex features. Gone in these efforts were the funny, kinky and often taboo-shattering plots that make Babyface, Pretty Peaches and Femmes De Sade classics of erotic cinema. In place of plot, De Renzy has given us sweaty collections of new loops, usually tied together by a narrator who comments on-camera about each upcoming scene.
Alex De Renzy's Wild Things is another sexy segment-packed outing,and, frankly, it delivers. The cast consists of the best adult movies have to offer. Fans of this sort of thing should be delighted; couples seeking a hot-and-heavy hedonistic excursion need not look elsewhere.
Newcomer Jill Ferrari introduces each segment by sexily clapping a production slate-board together. Mini-story number one concentrates on two female escaped convicts (big-busted Ashley Brown and black Mauvais DeNoire) who force a couple (Billy Dee and Patti Petite) to have sex with them. Lesbian action and forcefull sexplay highlight the proceedings. Kimberly Carson and Herschel Savage get it on next in an afternoon of illicit love-making between a couple cheating on their spouses. Savage proves his stud stature, while Kimberly displays her unique oral abilities.
The next section, involving gardner Jamie Tillis and teenager Traci Lords, is probably the kinkies of the bunch. Seedy househand Jamie jumps Traci's bones after she offers him cookies and milk. Traci's bones after she offers him cookies and milk. Traci looks no more than 18 in this segment, and Jamie's perverted, mumbled thoughts add a perverse touch to an already offbeat situation.
Then Buck Adams and lovely Tess Ferre play a couple who get off on talking dirty to each other. They're followed by a furious lesbian encounter between Christy Canyon and Ali Moore, both of whom look terrific. Finally, John Leslie corners housewife Robin Cannes for a spirited sex roundelay with a cute, surprise ending.
All sexual performances are splendid, and Wild Things, while hotter and often kinkier than the typical loop-oriented entry, seems more geared to couples than De Renzy's previous efforts. I'd like to see the director tackle a movie with a full-blown plot. But, in these times of Disappointing Sexvid Glut, let's be happy with the wild and wooly encounters Wild Things has to offer.
