Comstock has developed a winning format. Like his other films, the first half presents the couple talking to an unseen, unheard interviewer. They talk about meeting, then meeting again, then how their relationship blossomed (or exploded) into being. Quick cuts during the interview show moments from their bedroom scene, then return to the couple talking. Throughout that interview, the radiant smiles on their faces suggest the heat of new love - but they had already been together for years when that was taken.
The second half of each Comstock film follows the two through their intimacy, from undressing (and her getting knotted up in her T-shirt), through their play and peak, to a limp, loving cuddle afterward. Even with their lines, spots, and other marks of age, they make a handsome, even beautiful and graceful pair. And a happy pair - they laugh and giggle throughout, unable (and unwilling) to keep that huge happiness bottled up.
Lots of us knew it already, but the message needs to be heard more: There is life, and love, and some howling good sex after 40, and 50, and 60, ... Bill and Desiree make that statement beautifully.
Bill and Desiree give us a glimpse into a relationship seasoned by wisdom. They've had other relationships, a basis for comparison. They share the giddy early stages when Bill perceived Desiree as an unattainable goddess. They remind us that adolescent thrills can be known at any age. Their "spotted owl" story, about an inadvertent visitor who interrupts an outdoor tryst, gives a glimpse into their willingness to be photographed. They share tender love-making with the courageous, playful inclusion of sex toys (one never knows who has the cock or even who is ejaculating with these two). Their tender, eyes-open connection in intercourse is a treasure to witness. "Just the act of sleeping together is ecstatic:" They understand each other without excessive explanation. They give us a glimpse into a relationship which includes "accommodative sex" where one of them is present for the other even when they don't particularly want to climax -- intercourse as a "goodnight kiss."
"If some people aren't willing to be seen, how do we learn?" asks Desiree. Desiree and Bill give us a wide angle lens into what is OK to talk about and even what's OK to share with others. We get to see the fleeting paper-crane of love dangling in mid-air, with so much hope and heart invested. They talk about their love-making as "redemptive, spiritual daily nourishment." They give us a big YES to the unspoken question: is it possible to have soulful intimacy in the midst of sex? They share with us their diversity of positions (move over lesbians, they've claimed "69"), sensual activities from sucking toes to the finest, most teasing/tantalizing love-making by a man's hand that cinema has seen. Bill and Des give us evidence of love-making that is "deliciously rewarding and wondrously mischievous," to quote Bill. Hot? Bill's simple statement, "She likes the idea of my cum being inside her. I have to admit I like the idea too..." I replayed the DVD five times so far.
Bill and Desiree's non-possessive love leaves space for private time - they tell us, in a matter of fact way, that they don't live together. They also show that one can have such an intense connection that after only three weeks of being lovers, others saw them as having been married for many years. They make love and yet, when apart, he delights in knowing that she has masturbated. There is a deep profound merging of hearts and bodies -- and enough space that even Esther Perel (author of Mating in Captivity) would applaud them.
They tell us that peaks are peaks for a reason. Not every moment is Mount Everest. Seeing Bill and Desiree make love is not voyeurism. They give us a glimpse of the infinitely temporal, existentially fleeting intimacy of raw, playful, ecstatic, deeply merging sex. They show us their union, knowing that, for all time, it is but a moment in time. Our time together is all we have (my wisdom last summer, after a close friend suddenly died at a young age). Subtitled "love is timeless," this film gives us the opportunity to see, hear and almost feel their amazing connection. Brava, Bravo, Mazel-tov, and a deep thank-you from this viewer. What you've let us see is much, much deeper than the sexual merging.
