High-end fetish-meets-hardcore. If Andrew Blake titles do well for you, this one should too.
We haven't heard much from the acclaimed Tanya Hyde (AVN's Best Director, Foreign Release for 2000's Hell, Whores and High Heels for Pirate/Private USA) of late. World Without Men is her re-entry back into adult after a hiatus and while it has much to recommend, it's not an entirely successful production.
No one does that fetish-cum-hardcore thing better than Hyde and this all-girl title is, as always with Hyde, handsomely produced and highly stylized. The women in its four vignettes are across-the-board stunning, as is their high-end kink couture.
But the action, while certainly loaded with hot, horny images (the titles of the vignettes, such as "Chaos at the Clit Clinic" and "Dungeons, Dykes & Dildos" say it all), is a bit languid throughout and ends on a jarring, abrupt note in each of its scenes. Nonetheless, we'll still pre-nom it for Best All-Girl Feature since that field traditionally can use all the help it can get.
