Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This intriguing thriller weaves together three different but curiously related stories centering on the mysterious disappearance of quintessential boy-next-door porn star Mark Anton.

Review

This millennium s answer to TWIN PEAKS SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER

Crazily ambitious debut thriller... intelligent and well-acted... marks Kittredge as filmmaker with a strong mind and a gift for drawing full-bodied performances from his actors. LA WEEKLY

GRADE: A. The movie keeps the viewer guessing as to what is real and what is in the mind. If you're looking for a gay David Lynch-styled film, this is it. WASHINGTON BLADE --Wolfe

This is a brilliant little independent film that became my -favorite- film the night I saw it. It's like Memento with a heavy dash of David Lynch. If you like intelligent, unpredictable thrillers with a very dark and sexy edge, you'll love this film. The performances are awesome; the directing is excellent; the editing is tight. It doesn't hurt that the cast is easy on the eyes, either.
I've been waiting for this to come out on DVD since I saw it at a film festival in Chicago last year, and I'll be buying several copies -- one for me, and one for all my film-loving friends.

[Out IN Jersey Magazine review] -
Imagine being sucked into a nightmarish vortex while masturbating. Sex and horror and porn-stars commingle in that ever-changing world where dreams are real, lusty boyish angels are strangled, and every moment, real and imagined, is filmed and archived for the next traveler into this psycho-sexual circular Wonderland, where Alice is oiled and buff and the Hookah-Smoking Caterpillar is behind the camera. That's the feeling you get from Pornography: A Thriller.

David Kittredge -- who many know from his short film "Fairy Tale" from the acclaimed DVD anthology Boys Briefs, or from his second short Target Audience which was nominated for a Teddy award at the 2003 Berlin Film Festival -- delivers a thriller like no other with this feature directorial debut which premiered in April at Cinema Village in NYC.

Set in the gritty and unseemly world of gay porn production, the story focuses on the disappearance of a disaffected and disillusioned "boy-next-door" porn star named Mark Anton. Rumors abound about what happened to Mark, mostly involving his alleged last film requisitioned by a mysterious client. No one has ever seen that film, because, well, Mark is supposedly murdered in it. The following two acts of this three part thriller finds a writer researching Mark Anton's disappearance who stumbles onto a snippet of what appears to be the alleged snuff film (who most in the biz consider to be an urban legend), and another porn-star turned film-maker who channels Mark, feverishly pecks out a script, and proceeds on a ill-fated and haunted production of a porn-bio pic called The Mark Anton Story.

The mention alone of snuff films should lead one to believe this Kittredge movie is somewhat disturbing, but it's not.

An interesting, well acted art film that trips over itself too often. "Pornography, A Thriller" is basically three short films that overlap each other in bizarre and David Lynch-ian fashion. You start with the mysterious demise of one Mark Anton, an 80's porn star who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. The rumor is that he got tricked into a snuff movie. That sets up the next two acts.

Journalist Michael (Matthew Montgomery) is researching a book about the cultural significance of Gay adult movies and soon discovers he is being sucked into the odd story of Mark Anton. His lover, William (Walter Delmar), is soon acting weird when the Anton story begins consuming Michael. And they discover their neat new apartment may have been a porn studio. Even THE porn studio where Anton met his fate. After all these years, those involved with Anton aren't happy to find out someone is digging into this old urban legend, and soon Michael finds he has a bigger story on his hands than he thought.

That story also jarringly transitions to Los Angeles, where aging pornstar Matt Stevens(Pete Scherer) decides he will document Anton's dissapearance in his directorial debut., Again, dark forces begin to swirl around. And HIS boyfriend, also played by Delmar, soon tries to warn him away. Since this is allegedly a thriller, nobody listens to any warnings. Bad things are supposed to happen. And they will...or are they?

That is "Pornography's" major flaw. After awhile, the juxtapositions just become to circumstantial, and the thrills just aren't there. Suspense, yes, but not much by way of shockers. What could have been a compelling story flops around into artiness without resolving anything, and if you're going to put the word "Thriller" in your title, you need more than what is in the screen here to make your bones.

***SPOILER ALERT***
David Kittredge directs this chilling, erotic indie about obsession in the adult film world. Over a decade ago, a gay porn star named Mark Anton left the industry, seemingly vanishing into the ether right as his career was picking up steam. Though everyone had a scandalous theory about why he left, no one sought the truth -- until now. When Michael, a young researcher, comes across the story, he decides to investigate, and quickly spirals into a frightening, supernatural fun house of snuff films, voyeurism, and waking nightmares.

There is too much stuffed into this film for my taste. Three acts that are loosely linked, but it seemed less than the sum of its parts. The initial section - where man falls into porn and his fate is sealed - is predictable. The second scene - many years later - is excellent with two men who have moved into an apartment where murders may have happened. The third scene is about a porn star writing the scripts for the above episodes and it becomes a jumbled mess that overstays its welcome by 30 minutes or so. There were several great spots for the film to end. And it never did.
Still some fine acting, looks great, top score, some pretty bodies, etc.
