There are basically two kinds of XXX-rated movies: sophisticated and unsophisticated. Certainly, there's been a trend toward more sophisticated porno movies in recent years —as acting, direction, story-line and photography have become more professional and films have had more of a Hollywood sheen.
The new Video-X-Pictures release, the Erotic Adventures of Lolita, is a superior sex flick that is far from bring sophisticated. In fact, it's downright raunchy, looks like a home movie and features amateurish performances. But the sex is so hot and swarmy that it must be seen.
The film borrows little from the famous novel by Vladimer Nabokov other than the heroine's first name. It does, however, follow the book's theme of a teenager's indoctrination into the world of sex.
Here, Lolita is an innocent, blonde 13 year-old who, after seeing Mom and Dad messing around, begins to wonder about the joys sex can bring. Her first experience is with a local farmboy who introduces the hot-to-trot youngster to fellatio and anal action. After this pleasant awakening, she tells her close friend, Tigr (played by Chelsea Manchester), the she gets "funny feeling" whenever she thinks about sex. So she sets out to find more about that "funny feeling."
Lolita's sexual odyssey is a varied one, and includes a liaison with her female friend, masturbation and a kinky meeting with an older salesman whose wares include all kinds of sexual aides.
As played by newcomer Tammy Lamb, Lolita actually appear to be her age; Ms.Lamb has to be the youngest-looking actress to ever appear in an explicit film. With her pony-tails, full moon eyes, perfectly-fitting cut-off jeans and lithesome body, she raises more than eyebrows as the hot honey-child. Because her performance is so raw and untamed, there's a special brand of naturalness on view; you believe she's a 13 year old out for the kicks sex offers her.
Director Leon Gucci obviously has a penchant for making movies that are crammed with sexual encounters as he directed the wall-to-wall sexathon, Inside Desiree Cousteau. Here almost every scene has a furious sexual coupling, whether it be with Lolita, her parents, her friends, or a gardener played by Ron Jeremy. Much of this movie, particularly the final half hour, is shot in pulsating close-ups.
Although far from being sophisticated, The Erotic Adventures of Lolita is a sensual delight, guaranteed to keep you hot all night... or day.
