Lilith Likes to Watch - Alice In Wonderland: An X-Rated Musical Fantasy

Title:  Alice In Wonderland: An X-Rated Musical Fantasy Year:  1976 Starring:  Kristine DeBell, Alan Novak Director:  Bud Townsend Synopsis:  Alice is a good girl who isn't sure she wants to go all the way with her boyfriend. But when she follows a white rabbit into wonderland, she discovered just how fun being naughty can be. Lilith's Notes:  It's a musical porn version of Alice in Wonderland. This review is going to be brief. I don't have much to say about this film. For a musical, the songs are forgettable. For an Alice in Wonderland adaptation, the visuals are remarkably uninspired and the costumes are cheap or non-existent. The Cheshire cat doesn't exist, instead the production had two mouse costumes lying around so they decided just to have a couple people wear those and lick Alice all over. The Mad Hatter sort of looked like Roger Daltrey from Tommy , so that was interesting, if not distracting. The erotic bits were fine, though there was a

Lilith Likes to Watch - The Image (AKA The Punishment of Anne)

Title: The Image (AKA The Punishment of Anne AKA The Mistress and the Slave) Year: 1975 Starring: Rebecca Brooke, Carl Parker, Marilyn Roberts Director: Radley Metzger Synopsis: The story of middle-aged Jean, a writer, who meets an old friend, Claire, a lesbian and also middle-aged, and is soon drawn into her world of sadomasochism, in which they torture Claire's youthful slave, Anne. (via Wikipedia) Lilith's Notes: It's considered a staple of "Porno Chic". A few years ago when Fifty Shades of Grey  hit the scene, there was concern that it was espousing an unhealthy idea of BDSM, that it encouraged people to enter the fetish scene without fully comprehending the rules of the lifestyle. Even the author of the series has out and out admitted that she just found it hot, with no deeper meaning of the lifestyle. 36 years before  Fifty Shades was published, The Image  hit the scene, and completely ignored all the Safe, Sane and Consensual rule

Lilith Likes to Watch - In The Realm of the Senses

Title: In the Realm of The Senses AKA Ai no korîda Year: 1976 Starring: Tatsuya Fuji, Eiko Matsuda Director: Nagisa Ôshima Synopsis: A passionate telling of the story of Sada Abe, a woman whose affair with her master led to a sexual obsession which then came to a violent end. (via IMDB) Lilith's Notes: It contains scenes of unsimulated sex on screen. In the Realm of the Senses was added to the watch list because of 2 things - It had unsimulated sex acts on screen, and it had a Criterion Collection release, which meant it was classy . This movie was inspired by the true tale of Japanese folk hero, Sada Abe, a Japanese woman who killed her lover. Though this movie focuses on the relationship between Sada and said lover. It was...fine. It wasn't particularly pretty, for being a French-Japanese co-production. You had all the visuals of Japan, flowing silk, embroidery, the music, the makeup, and it was just sort of there. The inherent beauty in it wasn't rom
