User Review

Erotic and explicit

Rating: 10/10

The story of erotic films in the 1990s is largely a very sad one. American
main stream cinema seems to avoid the subject altogether, B movies are
obsessed with coupling sex with violence and death, and the typical porno is
as exciting as drying paint. But there are a few exceptions, most notably
the films of Tinto Brass, and this film here is a prime
example.

What is so unique about Brass' films of this decade (and to a slightly
lesser degree his 1980s films as well) is how they manage to combine
eroticism with an explicitness that is close to hardcore porn, and that
without ever looking seedy or overly stylish. Greatly supporting this
effect are the music of Riz Ortolani and the excellent cinematography by
Massimo Di Venanzo. With L'Uomo che guarda Brass seems to be telling the
porno makers: "this is how a sex film can and should look
like".

The UK certificated version of this is about 8 minutes shorter than the
original, but even that version would have no chance of an R rating in the
USA. The quality of the English dubbing is a bit better than usual, but
still we have to endure the traditional incomprehensible fake American
accent for the leading male as in so many Italian films.
