Saint-Narcisse - Lilith Likes to Watch

Title: Saint-Narcisse Year: 2020 Starring: Félix-Antoine Duval, Tania Kontoyanni, Alexandra Petrachuk Director: Bruce La Bruce Synopsis: Dominic’s fetish is… himself. Nothing turns him on more than his own reflection. That’s why discovering that he has a twin brother, raised in a remote monastery by a depraved priest, causes him major consternation. Fate brings the two young men back together again, and their fraternal relationship is torn between sex, revenge and redemption. - Via Letterboxd Lilith's Notes: The classic myth of Narcissus...gone sexual! "We're family" By the time I post this review it will be the final week of Pride month. You know what we don't do during Pride? We don't ban queer film. Decisions and follow through like that are what is called "not a good look." Saint-Narcisse had been on my list for a while and I was planning on getting to it eventually but this news made it a high priority. Saint-Narcisse follows the ta

Moebius - Lilith Likes to Watch

Title: Moebius Year: 2013 Starring:  Cho Jae-Hyun, Lee Eun Woo, Young Ju Seo Director: Kim Ki-Duk Synopsis: A wife, overwhelmed with hatred for her husband, inflicts an unspeakable wound on their son, as the family heads towards horrific destruction. - Via Lilith's Notes: Happy Father's Day! "..." This past weekend was Father's day. Since I have neither a father nor a daddy, I spent it watching a holiday appropriate movie. Moebius is a story about a family. A family, perhaps, not that different from your own. Father (Played by Cho Jae-Hyun), Mother (Played by Lee Eun Woo ), teenage Son (Played by Young Ju Seo ) and Mistress (Also played by Lee Eun Woo ). When Father and Mother fight over the fact Father is having an affair, Mother becomes enraged and considers cutting off her husband's wang. She is unable to bring herself to do it. She peeks in on the Son pleasuring himself and I guess she realizes he is no longer her innocent baby boy,

Skin-Flicks - Lilith Likes to Watch

Title: Skin-Flicks Year: 1978 Starring: Tony Hudson, Sharon Mitchell, Jamie Gillis Director: Gerard Damiano Synopsis: A young director is a struggling filmmaker making hardcore features for the mob. His latest feature, he hopes, will be his big break into the world of “mainstream” film-making, but will the mafia allow him to realize his dream? - Via Letterboxd . Lilith's Notes: More Damiano genius. "I'll love you if you hurt me." Oh Damiano, you've done it again. What starts out as a generic film about "the biz" slowly transforms into a rumination on the seedy nature of the industry. It Trojan horses the viewer into confronting the illicit behind the scenes darkness of the movies we so readily and willingly consume. Harry (Played by Tony Hudson) is a director of adult films. He's a little more of a visionary than your typical smut-smith and seems to want his performers to be comfortable. To finance his flick, he gets in bed with the mob. A

Writing in Bed - Lilith Likes to Watch

Title: Writing in Bed Year: 2017 Starring: Tommy Pistol, Ingrid Mouth Director: Shine Louise Houston Synopsis: A mean case of writer’s block and noisy roommates make it very hard for Parker to get any work done. Rowdy Aaron stumbles into Parker’s room late at night rousing her out of bed. Frustrated from lack of sleep and work, Parker tries her hand again at getting some writing done but her fingers find a far more compelling task. - Via Lilith's Notes: Tommy Pistol in his best performance yet? "You're mean, but in a nice way." This is going to be a short review because it was a short scene. Funny how that works. Parker (Played by Ingrid Mouth), is trying to write, but her room mates are being noisy and she has an apparent case of writer’s block. She’s trying to write some sort of screenplay, and from little we can read of it, a sexy screenplay at that. She stares at her screen, taunted by the drumming blink of the cursor. Any writer can relate
