Tinto Brass' MONAMOUR: Boobs, Butts and fake Schlongs

Cult Epics / NTSC All Region / Unrated / 1.85:1 Widescreen / Italian Language / English Subtitles / 94 minutes

Legendary erotic filmmaker Tinto Brass is known for his love of the voluptuous female tush. His films showcase the soft, round gluteus maximus with a hefty helping of bottom-heavy close-ups and gorgeous use of light and shadow to accentuate those qualities. In this late entry into his canon, Brass uses the breathtaking blonde Anna Jimskaia, in her only starring role, as his muse. She breathes and seethes blinding passion on camera and spend the majority of the film in various stages of undress. Her only job on screen is to ooze desperate sexuality and she does it with abandon. She is this movie and in a metaphorical kind of way, she makes love to Tinto Brass as much as the men in front of the camera.

I know the title of this article would suggest otherwise, but I am actually a fan of Eli Roth. His gory visions of flesh-ravaging diseases in Cabin Fever and lexicon-changing Hostel ("torture porn") and its sequel are fantastic horror movies. They combine the slick look of Hollywood movies and the attitude and graphic violence of the retro genre movies Roth obviously loves. His fake trailer "Thanksgiving" for the Tarantino/Rodriguez co-directed Grindhouse was easily one of my favorites of the lot. He makes guest appearances in other Tarantino films. Acts in over-the-top, fun remakes like Piranha 3D. Has his hand in producing other horror-related movies and TV shows like "Hemlock Grove". All because the guy loves old-school horror and exploitation movies. But can having one foot in the often offensive world of exploitation films and one in Hollywood be a detriment to his art?
