Editorial Reviews

Get up close and personal with 16 of the most successful women in the Adult Film Industry as they shed their clothes for an intimate photo shoot with Director Deborah Anderson. As questions are asked, personal stories about their lives are revealed, from why they chose the business of sex to how they got into it in the first place. These porn stars have always been discreet about their private lives in the past, yet Anderson has a way of opening up a dialog allowing them to share more than just their naked skin on screen. Their true inner vulnerability is touching, yet the characters they have created are confident and intoxicating. Once you hear their stories, you ll never look at them in the same way again.

It was alright, I mean they talked about their lives and how it's really hard for them as Porn stars and how people would react to them and treat them.

This film is not a documentary.

This film, first and foremost, is a vehicle of self-promotion for its director, Ms. Anderson. Beyond that, it shows young, beautiful women talking very briefly about their lives. That has value and interest, however, viewers should not draw conclusions about porn stars from such scanty information. This film is not a documentary. This film is a Playboy-type behind-the-scenes of a nudie photo shoot. That is fine, but, this film touts itself as offering insight through first-hand interviews. It doesn't.
I'm reminded of the Diane Sawyer interview of a young Belladonna on Prime Time Live several years, ago. Belladonna comes across as a very lost soul. My heart goes out to her. Some of the women in this film seem lost or, at least, fooling themselves(and the viewer). One woman tearfully said she was afraid she might have "f'd myself" by going into this line of work. I would wonder the same thing.
Some of the most truthful bits of information are spoken by Fran, the Adult Talent Agent. She said that with each scene, these women permanently lose a part of their souls, and that they should earmark half of their fortunes to therapy. One of the women said being a porn star is like being a stunt man, in that they are paid well because they are risking their lives doing this kind of work.
If we can watch this film and filter what rings true to us as individuals from what we want to believe, we can begin to have a clearer idea of the lives of porn actors.

Deborah Anderson has delivered a very inspiring look at the human condition of a group of women that work in what is probably the most harshly scrutinized cabinet of the entertainment industry. Many watchers I feel were looking at this documentary to resemble your standard documentary like a Michael Moore film. This film was never meant to resemble a typical documentary and should not be judged as such. This is an art form documentary that is a chronology of the photographic process in which Deborah Anderson produced and completed her new book. This is not a historical documentary of the porn industry, nor is it about pornography, which Deborah herself clearly states in the opening minutes. This documentary is about the fragile life situations that these women face on a daily basis in this industry. The cinematography was superb. The black & white/color transition added a very "noir" overtone to the vibe of the film. Deborah herself looked stunning and did a phenomenal job bringing the images and stories of each girl to the surface. The film was also decorated with a superb original soundtrack by Deborah's brother, Damion Anderson. It was refreshing to hear such original, tactile and sharp music driving the film along instead of your typical trite canned themes that are often heard. After reading several previous reviews from other websites, it is sad to realize that some people these days have lost their sensibilities for understanding the arts and the unabated portrayal of ones direction and vision. Deborah Anderson accomplished exactly what she set out to do. She cleverly brought an important message about the human condition across beautifully interwoven with stunning visuals and clear and present artistic depiction. This is a must see for the fine art enthusiast and anyone who loves a challenging film.

A beautiful film illuminating and humanizing the world of the porn industry. And whoever does the lighting and the make-up are amazing!!!! I have no interest in being in the porn industry (I'm sure they'd have no interest in me being in it either : ) ), but I wish I could look like those women - soooo beautiful!! The music and the cinemaphotography are also really great. And the girls are funny and super bright. I must admit that I really know nothing about Adult entertainment (save a strange lunch I catered 15 years ago in my 20's where all the folks showed up in crowns and cheesy between-takes robes). Having watched the documentary I feel I had the opportunity to have conversations with interesting and dynamic women who had a unique story to share. My favorite had to be the agent Fran (I think). You should see the movie for her comments alone.

Trying to ride the wave of the current porn chic, photographer/filmmaker Deborah Anderson swings and misses. Maybe she doesn’t miss by a mile, but this is neither horse shoes nor hand grenades. The documentary AROUSED, in which Anderson interviews sixteen prominent pornstars, just fails to deliver.

Some of this has to do with Anderson just trying too hard. One of the great things about porn is that it has a humor about itself (I still remember chuckling when I realized Peter North’s movie line was delightfully called North Pole). Digging below the surface for something more significant may have some merit, but that does not mean, by any stretch of the imagination, that it should be the porn actresses themselves doing so. People typically are not geniuses of introspection about themselves and it is unlikely that women choosing porn as a career even reach the level of average on that count. Don’t get me wrong, I often love them. But their appeal lies heavily on the outer (rather than inner) side of the equation.

Not that the lasses don’t have something to add. Sure, there are some interesting tidbits about how they got into porn and the consequences of that choice. But it is too little, and too old hat, to save this movie. Anderson approaches the subject as if it is something new. But in the age of pornstar biographies and numerous books and movies about the porn world, it is not. If anything, I will say the cinematography is good. The girls look great. If you must watch this, watch it for that.
