Best and Worst Watched in 2022 - Lilith Likes to Watch

Image
2022 is behind us and we venture into 2023. Things are slowly getting better. They are, really, though it might not really look like it from here. Anyway, let’s ring in this new year with a new Best and Worst of list! Like last year, I’m doing this in alphabetical order just so I don’t have to agonize over what was better than what and why. We watched over 50 films this year! We didn’t miss a single week. I am extremely proud of that. It was close one or two times but we managed to persevere! The rules are the same, it has to be something we first watched in 2022. Otherwise Behind the Green Door would be on this list and that movie does not need any more attention. Are you ready? Let’s begin! *** The Top Five Films Watched in 2022... ANGELA VOL. 3 Original Score: 5/5 Why it's on this list: It is the peak of Angela White’s career. Read Original Review This review was daunting to write because it had it’s own write up in The New York Post, so what could I possibly say that would comp

After Porn Ends: A Documentary - Lilith Likes to Watch Documentary December 2022

Title: After Porn Ends Year: 2012 Starring: Asia Carrera, Seka, Nina Hartly, John Leslie Director: Bryce Wagoner Synopsis: Documentary examining what happens to some of the biggest names in the history of the adult entertainment industry after they leave the business and try and live “normal” lives. - Via Letterboxd.com Lilith's Notes: The first of a trilogy. “Eventually their past will catch up with them, and they have to be aware of the fact that X is forever” Documentary December is one of my favourite themed months on this blog. I enjoy learning things through documentaries, and it’s a break in the types of films we watch for this site. Every year I’m excited to see what we’ll end up watching and I always hope it’s good. Unfortunately, After Porn Ends is a poor way to end 2022. I just found it extremely boring and blase. Everyone carries with them a personal bias, and mine is that, unless it’s requested of me, I try not to elevate documentaries that are thinly veiled

Inside Deep Throat - Lilith Likes to Watch Documentary December 2022

Title: Inside Deep Throat Year: 2005 Starring: Dennis Hopper, Gerard Damiano Director: Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato Synopsis: In 1972, a seemingly typical shoestring budget pornographic film was made in a Florida hotel, “Deep Throat,” starring Linda Lovelace. This film would surpass the wildest expectation of everyone involved to become one of the most successful independent films of all time. It caught the public imagination which met the spirit of the times, even as the self appointed guardians of public morality struggled to suppress it, and created, for a brief moment, a possible future where sexuality in film had a bold artistic potential. This film covers the story of the making of this controversial film, its stunning success, its hysterical opposition along with its dark side of mob influence and allegations of the on set mistreatment of the film’s star. - via Letterboxd.com Lilith's Notes: The first NC-17 movie ever aired on HBO "Deep Throat was the perfect ta

All month we're going to watch dirty documentaries. Take a break from your holiday hustle and curl up with some educational films. Who knows, we might all learn somehting. We begin with Netflix's new true crime documentary, Orgasm Inc: The Story of OneTaste I used to be rather new-agey. Not so much anymore. I sometimes idealize my life where I make my own candles and sell them at farmer's markets, or brew my own rosewater but that takes time out of my precious do nothing but stare at my ph

"Came in like a demon, and vanished like an angel." This is not how I planned to wrap up Nunvember. I had a classic film selected, one that had been previously reviewed by bigger names than I, and I was ready to buckle down and

Title: Sacred Flesh Year: 2000 Starring: Sally Tremaine, Eileen Daly, Kristina Bill Director: Nigel Wingrove Synopsis: Taunted by visions of Mary Magdalene, who reveals the confessions of the younger nuns at the convent, the Mother Superior’s mind is filled with the violent, sexual acts of her fellow sisters. - via Letterboxd.com Lilith's Notes: The other Nigel Wingrove nunsploitation film. "Sexual purity is the apex of my spirituality." Currently, in my non-erotica-consumed life I am rewatching the show Community, because if there is a God, he abandoned us all and I need something that makes me laugh. I just watched the Christmas Musical episode in which Annie Edison (Allison Brie) dresses sexy and turns dumb. Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) points out, and I quote "look, eventually you hit the point of diminishing returns on sexiness." Well, if that doesn't perfectly describe Sacred Flesh. Mother Superior (Played by Sally Tremaine) is haunted by t
