DVDEven on the rare occasions when director/screenwriter Jerry Douglas' main theme is not relationships, that's still what his movies are about because the dynamics of human relationships - whether between family, lovers, tricks, friends - are relentlessly fascinating to him. And, because he is such a master storyteller, to us. Usually, we are left to observe his characters on our own, but in Beyond Perfect we're taken right inside a deteriorating relationship as Brad Patton and Jason Kingsley visit a couples counselor, Joe Gage (pre-nom Non-Sexual Role), to try to figure out what's wrong and whether to split up or stay together. Of course, they know what's wrong (and Gage's remedy is at the same time amusing, right, erotic, and a perfect ending for a porn film), but like most people they'd rather avoid the truth for as long as possible. This is quite advantageous in porn, however, because that's how we get the sex scenes. The first is in a sex club and, except for the brightness, between the comings and goings and the watchers, this is a pretty good depiction of what happens in a sex club. The sex, in two parts with lots of cum-shots, is very good too. Brad and Jason have separate duos with Marc Sterling (great cum-spurts!) and Brad Benton (who jacks Jason off). A spontaneous threeway between friendly neighbors that happens practically in their laps is imaginative and sexy (pre-nom Group Scene), and the final Jason/Brad duo is the kind of sex you'd want to have yourself - and excellently video'd. Additional pre-noms: Picture, Director, Screenplay, Actor (Patton, Kingsley), Videography.
