REVIEWS

 

Critical Rating: AAA

Eric Edwards' talents as writer, director and producer really shine in Sailing Into Ecstasy, the story of a woman's search for sexual fulfillment. But hardcore fans take note: the sex here is slow and sensual and comes across as secondary to the story (a rare trait in adult features). But that doesn't mean it's boring. Oh, no. What we have here is sex in all it's erotic glory, but with the sensuality that appeals to couples and diehard romantics like myself.

Tracey Adams is the woman who has never had an orgasm, but fantasizes almost constantly about what it would take to have one. Her friends, like Blanche (Sheri St. Clair) and "The Weaver" (Paul Thomas), try to help her find sexual happiness. Sometimes she's close to her goal, but then someone interrupts her. But is all of this real?

Edwards' story purposely jumps around, leaving the viewer to wonder whether Adams is dreaming or awake. I won't tell, but be aware that there is strong Wizard of Oz imagery present here. And you can guess who's Dorothy.

Edwards does well keeping the sex slow and sensual (like the Adams/St. Clair lesbian scene in front of the fireplace) while moving the story quickly. The outdoor shots, trouble for some directors, are excellent, particularly the sex scenes on the boat (a steady camera on a shaky sea is not easy).

I recommend you see this video feature for its unique handling of love and sex. The emotions and sensuality witnessed here are a welcomed change from the "wham-bamm-thank-you-mam" tapes that are so popular today.
