Cinema Erotique review

Price

$30/14 Days

$40/Month

In the television documentary 9-to-5 Days in Porn, performer/producer/director Belladonna defines porn as “exciting, filthy fun” and while that’s all well and good, don’t you occasionally wish porn, you know, meant something? Making bold intellectual statements has never been regarded as porn’s forte, but Cinema Erotique is attempting to change that by producing feature films that are not only incredibly sexy and sensual, but offer something more intellectually stimulating than your average suck ‘n’ fuck flick.

Even at its highest artistic peak, pornography will always be viewed by everyday folks as an inferior artform to that other combination of moving image, montage, and sound, the feature motion picture. When compared to the cinematic achievements of Roberto Rosselini, Bela Tarr, Martin Scorsese, or Stanley Kubrick, even notable nut-busters like Behind the Green Door, Deepthroat, and Debbie Does Dallas are viewed as insignificant smut flicks whose only accomplishments are a few thousand ejaculations. No Oscars on the cards for the makers of Batman: A XXX parody then, even though it’s an infinitely wittier and more enjoyable romp than, say, Woody Allen’s horrendously undercooked Whatever Works. Cinema Erotique hopes to change the perception of pornography and the erotic video form, bringing it a degree of class and respectability previously denied films of a purely sexual or sensual content. Cherry Chapman, Cinema Erotique’s founder and chief filmmaker, focuses on crafting exciting and original works of erotic art, combining titillating imagery and beautiful young women with involved plots, soulful thematic strains, and fine cinematography. If you’ve recently found yourself wishing that Bergman and Antonioni had made pornographic films - Francis Ford Copolla made one, but it sucked - and longing for something more intellectually stimulating than Jam It All the Way Up My Ass Vol. 6, you’re in the right place.

Pros:
Cinema Erotique’s performers immediately appear to fit the mould of European erotica - slim, slender, sweet-faced, usually pale young women that are closer to The Girl Next Door than your average porno whore. They’re capable performers, too, handling the words of Guy de Maupassant better than many actors recite Mamet or Pinter.

Viewing options are solid here at Cinema Erotique, providing members with WMV and MOV formats, the best of which reach resolutions of or around 1920x1080 pixels. You’re looking at the online equivalent of a fairly slick Blu-Ray release of a movie shot on high-end HD cameras.

Although a site focusing mostly on video content, Cinema Erotique also features some fantastic still photography. Images regularly reach resolutions of 1500x2254 pixels and provide great views of the extremely seductive and sensual models.

Everything online - content count, update schedule - is exclusive and extremely original. Where else can you see the fantasies of a woman who associates her fetishistic tendencies to the crucifixion? Don’t tell your pastor, faithful parishioner, or you’ll be facing excommunication.

Cons:
At $40 a month, Cinema Erotique is one expensive porn site! I suppose, however, such cost is expected when the movies you’ll be enjoying are original productions with fairly elaborate sets, costumes, and equipment expenses. “We are a few independent film-makers and we need more members to help fund production,” the mission statement says - a fair point.

Galleries usually only hold between ten and thirty images each. Not only that but they don’t offer any zip download options, either. That reminds me of a joke from Annie Hall, the one Alvy Singer spouts during his direct-to-camera introduction that tells of two old Jewish ladies eating at a Catskills Mountains resort - “The food here is really bad,” says one. “Yeah, and such small portions.” (Although Cinema Erotique’s photos are actually very attractive.)

Can be kinda, well, stupid. Some might argue that intellectualizing pornography in this fashion is as shallow and misguided as calling There Will Be Blood “a delightful romp through picturesque 1900s California with a sassy oil man as your guide”.

This might be a gripe shared by very few Mr. Pink’s readers, but I hate to see a supposedly classy and intellectual website brought down by poor grammar, spelling errors, and an almost complete lack of comma use. Need a proofreader, Cinema Erotique? (Yeah, I know, I know. I’m not perfect either.)

Conclusion:
In an industry that often regurgitates upon itself and seems largely content to churn out the same tired old routine ad nauseam - what Sasha Grey calls the “three stage scene... blowjob, vaginal, doggy anal” - it’s refreshing to find a site that puts a unique spin on their adult movies. From the moment of conception to the completion of a final cut to the moment the end credits rolls by as you recline in exhausted satisfaction, Cinema Erotique’s provocative movies make most porn look like low-budget indie movies nobody should or will see. There are a number of issues with the site - the cost remains prohibitive to most visitors and it’s difficult to determine the exact update schedule - but there aren’t many porn producers willing to attach such intellectual importance to their work, a trait of which Cherry Chapman and her Cinema Erotique team should be very proud.
