Plot-lovers, Sunset Thomas fans, couples.
This noir caper vid offers unexpected pleasures: a clever script, good acting performances, and a real feeling of night in the scenes. Also some damn hot sex, including a pre-nom Chloe/Steve Hatcher scene, featuring Chloe's trademark eye-rolling intensity.
While Kyle Stone and Velvet Rose disport themselves in their kitchen, pussy cat burglar Sunset Thomas sneaks upstairs, snatches a small silver cat statue, and leaves, exulting, "This is almost too easy." The cops (Randy Spears and Julie Meadows) don't have any clues - and this is the fifth cat relic to be stolen. But Number Six's owner, Tyce Buné, catches Thomas as she's about to steal his cat - and she gives him a pussy of her own before she takes his. Spears and Meadows, after they get out of bed, get to the station where Buné has reported his robbery - but won't press charges. At Buné's house, Meadows recreates the crime, realizing that the thief wants power, not kittycat trophies. "She'll do it that way again - because that's the way I'd do it!" Meadows snarls. And that night, Thomas breaks in on Lezley Zen and Eric Masterson and does it again. They won't press charges either. Meadows freaks out, to the consternation of Spears and fellow cop Hatcher, and sets a trap to catch Thomas. Thomas walks right into it, having her way with Spears, then calling him "Detective" and pointing out that if she doesn't steal the cat - there's no crime. Ending wraps everything up in a neat package.
Videographer Baz shows himself to be adept at capturing the interplay between dark and light in this mostly-nighttime vid. Pre-nom. A pre-nom also to Chloe for directing, getting good acting out of her performers and telling the story visually, especially the ending. (She also cribbed a shot from Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes, always a good sign.) Pre-noms to Meadows for Best Actress - Video and Spears for Best Actor - Video as well.
