We're thinking we ought to bring back separate ratings for image and content for these classic movies, since Fiona on Fire is a pretty good detective yarn whose presentation here is consistent blurry and dark.
The film begins with a gal's Psycho-like shower murder after an oral session with Jamie Gillis. Since it's accomplished with a shotgun blast to the face, jewelry found on the victim causes everyone to assume it's hooker Amber Hunt, and dark-skinned detective Sam Dean is hot on the case, questioning hookers all over Times Square. (We love the ambiance here, which includes a shot of Playland, the archetypical Times Square pinball arcade with Hubert's Museum in its basement -- both now long gone.)
The story isn't told sequentially, but among its treats are a girl/girl lick session between Amber and Gloria Leonard; Jamie being dominated, fucked and injected by his sister (Marlene Willoughby); Amber devirginating delivery body Pepe Valentino (nice cowgirl and reverse there before the mish); and the (surprise, surprise) still-living Amber seducing Sam in a nice bed bounce.
Retailing: Amber Hunt fans will love it, as will fans of the other classic ladies, but the poor image quality will generate complaints.
