Editorial Reviews

It's Another Findlay Frenzy! Yes, Michael and Roberta Findlay -- the outrageous auteurs of the infamous "Flesh" trilogy (The Touch of Her Flesh, The Curse of Her Flesh, The Kiss of Her Flesh) -- continue their bizarre Battle of the Sexes with this utterly deranged, diseased, and degenerate double feature! Peeping out the window of his skid-row room, a Bowery bum becomes obsessed with Elaine, "a living tomb of flesh" who lives in the building next door (played by Roberta Findlay in a rare starring role). But when his sexual fantasies are invaded by "a twisted mental hunchback" (director Michael Findlay of course), the bum snaps, goes into a homicidal rage and, completely bonkers, brings Elaine a carving knife he thinks is a bouquet of flowers.... This maniacally morbid masterpiece is a foaming at-the-mouth mix of art-film lyricism and horror-movie excess as only the Findlays made 'em! Plus, wife-murderer Richard Davis (director Michael Findlay again) picks up deranged hitchhikers Maggie and Jackie, takes them to their house of A Thousand Pleasures, and meets their brain-damaged adopted daughter "Little Baby," a full-grown woman in a diaper. Maggie and Jackie, however, want a real child but, because they're "true lesbians" who "hate the filthy touch of men," decide to turn Davis into their very own sperm bank. Please consult your doctor after viewing. These films are so sick, they might be contagious.

3.0 out of 5 stars `Consider Our Luxurious Haunches' January 18, 2005
Verified Purchase
Experience (former) husband and wife exploitationeers Michael and Roberta Findlay at their most pretentious and their most whacked in this double feature. On the pretentious side, there's "Take Me Naked," a droning sex drama set in the Bowery. This is probably as close to an "art" film the Findlays ever got, but its only point of interest is featuring Mrs. Findlay herself (as "Anna Riva"), starring as the object of neighbor Kevin Sullivan's erotic obsessions. Not exactly a sexpot, Roberta trudges through the movie, showing off her Rubenesque figure and indulging in blurry lesbian encounters, all the while looking as if she wishes she were dead. There's no dialog, only readings of the risqué poems of Pierre Louys ("Consider our luxurious haunches" coos a female narrator) over warbling violin music. The psychosexual violence in the movie's final act is more in line with the Findlays' later works, but it's too late to offset "Take Me Naked"'s overwhelming dullness.

A whole lot more interesting--and the only reason to own this disk--is the second feature, "A Thousand Pleasures." The insanity begins when Richard Davis (played by Michael Findlay), after having murdered his wife (Roberta, in a brief but grating appearance), picks up two female hitchhikers wearing matching wigs. One promptly falls asleep in the backseat while the other pleasures Richard orally ("You'll love it," she promises, sounding like Barbra Streisand imitating Mae West). But, uh-oh, the woman in the backseat notices there's a dead body in the back of Richard's station wagon. The women then blackmail Richard into staying at their home, where he encounters Baby, an adult woman in diapers who sleeps in a crib, and "Boobarella," an ample-bodied African-American woman with an insatiable sexual appetite.

2.0 out of 5 stars Depravity pure and simple! October 3, 2004
By WLR
Although I grew up in the 60s I had never even heard of the Findlays or their movies until I discovered Something Weird Video about five years ago. Since then I have sort of been waiting for these movies to come out on DVD so that I could see for myself. I had pretty low expectations and they certainly lived up to them. Take Me Naked is nothing more than a pathetic wino fantasizing (mostly) about Roberta Findlay who lives in a nearby dingy apartment in a run-down section of New York. She looks good, as do the other SMV regular women who all get naked a lot. Someone in the background is constantly reading poetry. There is no dialogue, everything is voice-over. A lot of the time the camera shoots from weird angles and often (deliberately) out of focus. That's too bad since the explicit sex would have improved the movie a notch.. And its always a pleasure to see Darlene Bennett (even briefly) in these movies. A Thousand Pleasures has an interesting premise and actually has some plot (sort of). Michael Findlay snaps while doing the dishes in his cute apron and murders his nagging wife Roberta Findlay. So he places her corpse in the back of his station wagon concealed under a blanket and takes to the highway. Incredibly, he stops to give a ride to two attractive women hitchhikers. One of them proceeds to offer him a sexual favor just to say thanks, while the other quickly discovers the body in the back. The two women decide to take him home because, of course, they are even sicker than he is, and it just gets weirder from there. There are unbelievably stupid holes in the plot but then I suppose the whole idea is just to showcase a lot of depravity. Most of the women get naked and look pretty good. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for an old movie May 5, 2013

For a movie made in the sixties, or the seventies I give it lots of credit. Actually both movies are OK, not bad, also not that great. but both are worth what you paying for.
