This box set is a collection of Tinto Brass` three most recent releases from Cult Epics, and features his earliest works. 'DEADLY SWEET' (1967), AKA 'Heart In His Mouth', billed as "a cinema fumetti pop art giallo thriller", stars 17 year-old Ewa Aulin ('Candy', 'Legend Of Blood Castle') and features 60`s psychedelic pop art visuals by renowned artist Guido Crepax, Europe's erotic answer to Roy Lichtenstein by way of Aubrey Beardsley. It's a story-light romp through a genre-bending murder mystery/crime drama collision with a swinging London underground as backdrop. Featuring split-screens, triple-screens, comic art storyboards, it`s a lot of fun as a period piece, and not to be taken too seriously..

'THE HOWL' (1969), AKA 'L`urlo', starring Tina Aumont, is an arresting surrealistic cult classic that incorporates psychedelics, poetry, anarchy, absurdism, sexuality and a high level of anti-war sentiment into what amounts to 'Alice In Wonderland' on acid. It revolves around a bride who leaves her wedding in mid-ceremony with a stranger and together they set off on a trippy, wacky and bizarre journey. Welcome to the sexual/political revolution as Tinto Brass imagined it. Brass turned down the offer to direct 'A Clockwork Orange' to film this flick instead, though I'm thinking this wasn't a good decision on his part.

Lastly is 'ATTRACTION' (1969), AKA 'NEROSUBIANCO', AKA 'The Artful Penetration Of Barbara', produced by Radley Metzger, so we've upped the nudity quotient as a result. But it is unquestionably the best film of the three. Taboo-smashing for its time, it involves a married woman (Anita Sanders) whose journey through the (again) psychedelic British youth scene while being sexually persued by an attractive African-American male opens up a world of carnal offerings, tripped-out images, loads of nudity and dazzling 60`s fashions and iconography. If you like 60`s psych, pop-art visuals, near-plot less storylines and gratuitous flesh, grab yours now.

I won't go into each movie, that's already been done quite well. If you enjoy main stream American movies, this ain't for you. However if you enjoy European movie making, and don't mind subtitles, you are in for a ride! The best way I can describe both the Howl and Attraction is to visualize taking everything you know about movie making, put it in a blender, leave the top off, turn it on, and watch what flies out and sticks to the wall! He ( Brass) pokes his finger in the eye of life's absurdities and ironies right and left. It's all very entertaining, and I think it will take several viewings to grasp it all. So why did I give it only 4 stars? In the description it states that these movies are in Italian with English subtitles and that is true of the first two. However, "Attraction" has neither subtitles or closed captions. Let me tell you, if your hearing is anything less than perfect, you are going to miss a lot. The dialogue is fast and spoken with an accent, there is background narration, voice overs, not to mention a strong sound track with the words to the songs tying in with the action on the screen...there's a lot going on all at once and subtitles would have really made a difference. I hope a future version has them. Definitely something different!!

Tinto Brass is a very famous Italian classic erotic filmmaker. Although his movies are very explicit, they are far from being porno garbage. His movies teach respect, admiration and adoration of opposite sex. However, we shall remember that this is Italy where relations between opposite sexes are more frivolous than we traditionally think of 1930-50 American classic movies. Anyway, I recommend to buy, watch and enjoy.

These were old and confusing b movie cycadelic types of movies that the drug era people might get into this kind of format.
