Editorial Reviews

Rated X, A Journey Through Porn is a feature length documentary that follows filmmakers Dag Yngvesson as he traces the routes into and out of the porn business, looking at work in the sex trade as it begins to adapt to its newfound legality and acceptability. Through talking to people at every level in the creation of pornography, (from a 19 year old former waitress who had joined 3 days before to some of the founding fathers dating to the late 60's), we gain an insight on where this slow to change industry is really headed, and how it plans to deal with the looming specters of HIV, racism, and deep rooted misogyny.

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.

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.

Overall, this is a good documentary. It was a little more explicit than I expected, but definitely not hardcore. This is a dated title: one of the topics discussed is the lack of work for black porn actors. This no longer seems to hold true with the plethora of black and interracial titles flooding the market. It was good to see the lighter side of some of the actors and Jeanna Fine's drug addiction was also a major subject of the documentary. It would be nice to see a documentary about the health hazards inherent in the porn industry, which was mentioned in passing maybe once or twice.

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.

This was a great documentary, I love anything that has to do with the real people in porn, and I think there should be more. The biggest problem I see with this movie is that it was done right before the internet boom. Since the internet boom most of what you see is pretty much a thing of the past....
