Don't bother trying to suspend your disbelief here, director Paul Barresi has totally deconstructed the making of a porn vid. Like the Jean-Luck Godard classic Contempt, Barresi never lets you forget you are watching a movie. He begins by introducing the cast. He allows them to speak about themselves, but he never demystifies their desirability. Rather, this only serves to make the cast more accessible to the viewer.
By constantly acknowledging the production (showing cameras, tripods, reflectors (and by including his own presence on screen, Barresi dispenses with the necessity for a contrived script and concentrates instead on good cocksucking. The script is simply the making of a cocksucking movie, one poolside scene complete with a perfect ensemble cast and ball-busting sex.
The fantasy here isn't merely enjoying the sex, it is putting oneself in the power position of a porn director, of being in control. Barresi's pre-nom worthy directorial ease makes for a watcher-friendly video. And watch out for Anthony Gallo!
