Before I start, I’d just like to point out that I made a “25 Great Gay Sex Scenes Saga” category, and included a category widget on the left of this page, for easier navigation of all posts of this saga.

Note: I’d probably rate the hotness a little higher, but I definitely agree with this rating.

Pornography: A Thriller is certainly an attention-grabbing title, but it isn’t exactly in the realm of conventional. As such, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I decided to make it the third instalment of this saga. Things only became more confusing when I found out that the movie was a sci-fi thriller. Now, I’m a huge sci-fi, thriller and fantasy fan, so I tried to keep an open mind when I sat down to watch this movie… or, at least, as an open a mind as one can keep when they’re about to watch something called Pornography: A Thriller. In the end, what I found was… bizarre.

Pornography: A Thriller is really three stories combined into one, but they all revolve around the mysterious disappearance of Mark Anton, a young adult film star. There is an obvious supernatural element of the disappearance, as Anton’s unexplained fate seems to manifest in the lives of those investigating his disappearance. Pornography: A Thriller feels like the three-way love child of Saw, The Ring, and any Sean Cody film. These different components made for an interesting combination, but it also made the movie a bit more complicated than perhaps necessary, with the effect that by the end of the movie, there were quite a few significant questions that went unanswered, and I still have no idea at all what the conclusion was supposed to be.

The movie was directed by David Kittredge, who is also the writer, and I imagine that he had a specific vision in mind for the movie, but I’m afraid it didn’t translate… at least to me. I’m usually a sucker for unconventional direction and cinematography, but this movie failed to provide that spark for me. In fact, at several points throughout, I felt completely lost, because the shifting scenes made it hard for me to determine whose storyline I was supposed to be following.

But enough of the negatives – onto what I liked about the film.

The acting displayed in Pornography: A Thriller was pretty good. It wasn’t excellent by any means, but I believe that that was more of a reflection of the script than it was of the actors’ skills. I think that the actors actually made the most out of the material given. Although sometimes unsuccessfully executed in terms of directing, the story was, for the most part, quite intriguing. There were a few times when I considered bailing on the movie, but there were several more instances when I became too involved in the story to even dare! Admittedly, there were also scenes which – perhaps didn’t outright scare me – but succeeded in giving off a totally eerie vibe, and I loved that.

This movie, unlike the others that I’ve reviewed so far, did not have a defining love story. That’s understandable, of course, as it was not the point of the film. However, it’s slightly disappointing as there were no real touching moments to capture in GIF format. What the movie lacked in sentiment, it definitely made up for in sex, so I suppose that that’s what I’ll have to present.
