Emmanuelle: A Hard Look (2000)

Emmanuelle: A Hard Look (2000)

One of the rare movie documentaries that’s way more interesting than the movies it’s covering, this sort-of-polemic from occasional genius filmmaker Alex Cox was made in 2000 to “celebrate” the first network showing of “Emmanuelle”, the softcore porn film that launched a surprisingly durable franchise – check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmanuelle#Filmography for proof; basically, just spend a … Continue reading
