Lust Cinema review

Price

$34.95/Month

The cinema of lust didn't die out with the controversy surrounding Brando using butter to help him fuck Maria Schneider in the ass in 1972's Last Tango in Paris - just ask Erika Lust, the director, producer, writer, and sex educator hell bent on making her voice, and the voice of many women, a vital part of the contemporary pornographic landscape. What does that mean for you, though? Well, on its official website, Lust Cinema, Erika's so-named company host a group of feature films that are at one explicit and tender, equally educational and primally arousing. Although Lust Cinema is still finding its online footing, there's definitely a strong future here and Lust Cinema will be of particular interest to those losing interest in most of mainstream porn's habitual attempts at one-upmanship.

Lust Cinema review | Mr. Pink's Porn Reviews
MrPinks.com review date - 07/10/2012

Overview:
Throughout the history of cinema there have been many, many movements centered around artistic ideals filmmakers believed were being discarded in favor of cheap, fast, and tacky pictures. France, Japan, Czechoslovakia, Australia, Romania, and Iran have all gone through periods of "new wave" cinema that broke boundaries and redefined the art form for each time and place. Right now, in 2012, the porn industry is seeing something of a Sex-Positive Feminist New Wave movement. Pornstars-turned-directors like Bobbi Starr and Kimberly Kane, and sex educators Jamye Waxman and Tristan Taormino have staged a mini-revolution, producing porn that's targeted as much to women as it is to straight men. One lesser known trailblazer of this movement is Erika Lust, a Swedish "pioneer of feminist pornography" (says Wikipedia) living and working in Barcelona. Lust's company, Lust Cinema, was founded in 2004 and has, in the years since, become one of the most vital female-headed porn companies on the planet. Now online is Lust Cinema, Erika and co's online version of their production archive, where those willing to lay down the $34.95 required for membership can view such distinctive Lust Cinema releases as Life Love Lust, Barcelona Sex Project, and Five Hot Stories For Her. Pushing through every boundary she comes up against, Lust and her fellow directors tackle such sexual taboos as anal sex, sadomasochism, female domination, and multiple partners in a passionate, natural yet glamorous style. On the verge of becoming a worldwide success, Lust Cinema is attempting, dear reader, to lure you in for a closer look. Will you bite?

Pros:
The style of Lust Cinema's films can be summed up as highly erotic hardcore porn with a feminist and vaguely academic slant. The movies currently online range from educational fellatio and cunnilingus films to 1920s-styled spanking and bondage, prison sex, and documentary-style investigations of the sexual attitudes and activities of modern day Barcelonans.

Image quality is high throughout Lust Cinema's online archive, with many feature films presented in High Definition viewing formats that peak at a 720p resolution that offers plenty of detail. What little photo content that is online can be viewed at 800, 1200, 2000, and 5100px resolutions and look fantastic with world class photography capturing the essence of what Lust Cinema's all about.

Lust Cinema is clearly devoted to evolving pornography from the rather tacky state of the industry at large. So dedicated, in fact, that the site hosts a Lust Film Fest, inviting would-be porn artists to submit their own filmed work. Ranging from a sexually charged music video to arty black and white lesbian kissing scenes, this online festival makes for great supplemental viewing.

Finding porn that won't offend or embarrass or otherwise upset your lover, girlfriend, or wife can seem an impossible task at the best of times. If your lady finds candlelit baths, red velvet curtains, and slow, sensual lovemaking to be, like, soooo romantic, Lust CInema gives you a pretty good shot at introducing porn into your relationship without worrying about ending up unexpectedly single.

Cons:
Having just launched this year and adding only two movies per month, you can't exactly expect Lust Cinema to be overflowing with content. And it's not. With quite a lot of nonexclusive (and fairly ubiquitous) content - Tristan Taormino's Guide(s) to… releases can be found at Vivid and Videobox's websites, among other paces - the exclusive, original parts of Lust Cinema's archive are few.

If Lust Cinema and its directors were genuinely dedicated to creating something powerfully new, perhaps even revolutionary, then they're going to have to fire the production designer.  With its candles, soft music, shadowed and silhouetted lighting, and often unconvincing displays of "passionate" lovemaking, Lust Cinema can be just as cliche and absurd as the porn it's supposed to be supplanting. You can't make feminist, progressive porn without the same old tropes?

Most of the instructional movies suffer from their monotone, impassive narration. "Another variation of this sexual position is the so-called "side approach." The active partner lies down behind the passive partner in the spoon position and carefully spreads the buttocks to reach the anus." Not exactly the most alluring, inspiring description of good anal technique, is it?

All those Kino Flo lights, anamorphic lenses, and dolly tracks don't pay for themselves, you know, which is likely why Lust Cinema charges its members a whopping thirty-five bucks a month to view its movies online. Without a discount, this is one site that is asking a bit much of its prospective viewers, at least at this early stage.

Conclusion:
The precious few companies producing extremely high-end hardcore porn struggle to reconcile their expensive productions and the high membership prices of their websites, often to the point of driving away would-be customers. With its thirty-five dollar price tag a significant obstacle many prospective members will choose to ignore, heading elsewhere for their hardcore erotica fix, Lust Cinema's price tag is one of this fledgling sites major problems. It was definitely disappointing to log in and find feature-length adult movies that are so readily available elsewhere their very presence here inspired an active disinterest in this review, and no doubt in many visitors to Lust Cinema. The original productions are much more enjoyable and interesting, dealing with taboo and fetish content in a mature and stylish fashion, although they do seem a bit too rife many of the cliches that have relegated erotica (even hardcore erotica) to something of a laughing stock amongst "real" pornographers. Lust Cinema has the potential to blow away so many other, less impressive pseudo-feminist porno entities, but not until it makes a few revisions to its site and, just maybe, to its style. Right now, it's just another competitor; a strong one, yes, but not quite strong enough to make a real difference.
