Critical Rating: AAAAA
Stylish, high-caliber "western" skimps on neither humor nor plot development while still delivering hot fistfuls of fucking (not to mention A2M). Wee Brianna Love sucks and fucks Mr. Marcus' black stallion, and Taryn Thomas is alternately ridden (while she and Love wear bridles and slink around on all fours) and rides Erik Everhard while director Manuel Ferrara berates his actors for lackluster copulating and bemoans his boredom with run-of-the-mill stroke movies.
The orgy action that follows is broken up with funny scenes in which Ferrara tries to sell - and later save - his western fuck epic to his asshole producer. Later, Ferrara vents his frustration about the lack of authenticity of the girls' modern slut attire, the renting of inappropriate English saddles for the horses and the whining of new adult starlets about the heat and dust.
As in Sergio Leone's classic that popularized the spaghetti western genre, Bustful doesn't give us a hero, per se. Although the sets are great, and the girls and the orgies hot, it often comes across as merely group sex with cowboy hats and boots (and little else), albeit chock full of blowjobs and rump wrangling. For example, after all Ferrara's griping about period authenticity, the final orgy scene is somewhat odd in that it begins with the girls spinning on an unwesternlike merry-go-round adorned with balloons (but wearing their cowboy hats, of course).
Overall, however, the film is well paced, edited and acted, as it details Ferrara's tribulations in realizing his dream to make a film with "real girls" and "real sex" that appeals to the brain as well as the head. But in the end, he never quite gets there, as the shoot-em-up western action never really transpires.
But the fuck scenes are well shot and fun, the dialogue hilarious, and fans of Brianna Love's ass will delight in the numerous shots of it blazing out of her chaps as she slings her guns.
Outstanding effort, though a bit too long.
