Movie Reviews

Great Documentary!
H. May | Massachusetts | 11/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I saw this documentary at a film festival a little while ago. The movie is incredible. It really gives you an insight into the porn industry and lets you see the good and the bad. The movie gives a truly unbiased viewpoint and provides you with the information on which to base your own opinions. The soundtrack and video quality is top-notch. I think there is a Web site that has more information about it... If you are looking for a porno flick, this is not it. It is a well done documentary."
A Good Inside Look at the Industry

(5 out of 5 stars)

"As I am working on a research project dealing with the adult industry, I ordered "Rated-X" with the hope that it could shed light on the interviews and accounts that I have already studied. It does just that. It brings to life the players in the business and does a credible job of revealing how videos are made.

More importantly, it shows the industry's psychological impact on those who are in it. Especially significant is the presentation of the male performers. So often, I have discovered that the concerns of male performers are shortchanged in that most resources I have used concentrate on the women in the business. But the issues that men encounter on the set and in their personal lives are clearly pointed out.

There are times when I found some moments to be emotionally overwhelming. Jenna Fine's drug abuse stands out, as does Bill Margold's efforts to comfort the girls coming into the business. So often when being interviewed, the women seem distant and troubled . . . perhaps revealing an unspoken sadness. In addition, the video deals with a part of the adult business that is little discussed . . . that of racism.

For anyone who is interested in casual look at the porn, I highly recommend Dag Yngvesson's film. For others who may want a more academic investigation, I believe it to be invaluable."
So this is what happens in porn...

"Good documentary. Liked the part about Jeanna Fine and how she lives (lived?). The drugs, the relationship with her husband/boyfriend, the tricks she does on the side to make ends meet, and how it all worked together isn't something you see every day. The porn audition stuff was interesting. Amazing to me that people end up making these decisions, so it was cool to get perspective behind that and more information why they do.

If you're a fan of Jeanna Fine, you'll like this. Fans of adult movies will like this. Pretty good documentary. Definitely something that will make you think."
