I LOVED this movie! It's not just about Porn, though. It's about artistic vision! This movie is interesting apart from the sex. I watched it in its entirety and I fully enjoyed it!
As far as getting your rocks off, it does have a strange but hot group scene worth watching and at one point Mickey G has sex with a hot tree lady played by Shay Sights. That in it self makes you wonder what happens next. Also I'd like to add that the whole "Grandma in the porno movie" idea really doesn't appeal to me but in this case IT WORKS! It plays well into the story, it's kind of creepy, and I like it. This is a very good movie. The camera work was great and good editing as well. I'd watch it again.
My Vote: Rewind

Artistically done. Obvious that Zupko put some serious effort into making a creative vision. Problem: The movie takes twelve minutes to get to any sex. Even worse, there's this 'grandma'. This didn't help my hard on one bit.
In the first scene the starlet is dressed as a tree - talk about getting some bush! The scene is good, the pop shot is excellent, all over her tongue, swallows some, messy with the rest. Good start. Second scene, blonde dressed as a clown. Some cool shots, visually stunning, seems to work really well. Abortion scene is graphic, you can see the blood filling a receptacle and the scene ends with the doctor screaming, "Your Grandma is a whore!" My dick was pointing so far south I could have used it as a reverse compass. Next a girl on a cross with an umbilical cord protruding out of her pussy connected to three women via their belly buttons. Okay, this is trippy. The mother chewing her way through the cords disconnects them. Either a girl gives head to the umbilical cord or is jacking it off. Now I'm repulsed.
This film is genuinely artistic. Zupko should seriously consider doing mainstream gothic type film or music video for bands like NIN or Mantis13. I've seen other Zupko films and they have been great. However, this one will have you fast-forwarding a lot. I'd also suggest skipping the abortion scene.
Rating: Fast Forward
