The Hustler Taboo name recognition combined with the eye-catching box cover, the A-list female cast and yes, this Editor\'s Choice review, should make for big movement.
Not really the video/DVD equivalent of the seriously kinky Flynt magazine of the same name, Hustler's Taboo is the latest title to combine fetish fashions with hardcore sex.
But with its gorgeous, supremely stylized production values straight from the highly creative mind of director Richard Hamilton, it's several thrilling cuts above most other examples of that growing genre. Add to the mix an A-list cast of sizzling porn babes dressed in serious kink couture (not the pedestrian kind frequently found elsewhere) and nasty, well-energized sex hot enough for many solo strokers, but with enough high gloss to appeal to many couples as well, and what results is one of the best wall-to-wall titles of the year.
Hustler's Taboo cums out the gate in sit-the-fuck-up-and-take-notice fashion with one of the most visually distinctive sex scenes ever shot. Mandy Bright, sporting mouthwatering latex from head to toe, does a suck/fuck/sodomize/d.p. piston-pump with Brett Rockman and Frank Gun in an austere white slaughterhouse, starkly contrasted by tons of blood and made surreal by disorienting visual effects (Hamilton exploits the setting for all its worth, having Bright caress her pussy with a blood-stained knife while Hitchcockian music plays, and later, having one of the guys shoot his load onto a slab of meat, from which Mandy slurps it up). Pre-nom it for Best Threeway.
Scene two, in which Ashley Long, herself never looking more gorgeous, bangs Anthony Hardwood in some kind of sci fi-ish medical office, and scene three, in which supreme eye candy piece Jana Cova gets the strap-on treatment from young girl perfect ten Charlie Lane in a futuristic-like dungeon, their thigh high black patent leather fetish boots flailing about in tandem, rock as well.
If scenes four and five, featuring Jayna Oso/Lee Stone and Kimberly Kane/some dude, aren't quite as impressive, well, that's largely due to the tough acts they had to follow.
Other pre-noms: the overall production for Best All-Sex Title, Hamilton for Best Director - Other Genre, videography (credited to "Avion"), editing (Next Door Jimmy), music (not credited), art direction (Hamilton and Nora Sky), and lastly, the box cover, which pulls off the no small feat of managing to stand out from the pack.
