Utterly static display of rope-tying, but worthwhile busty babes on view
The horrible Jack Banner perpetrated this bondage/fetish video, with his usual display of anti-cinematic non-talent. But casting was superb, its only saving grace.
Sporting decolletage, latex and high heels, Julie Simone coldly and mechanically ties up six top fetish models, all cast for their large to huge breast size, and reties them, with only a moment of fondling for one lucky gal to suggest sexual content. This is strictly about the fetishist's need out there in video land to watch beauties gagged and struggling against their bonds, with the clear notion that they are enjoying their submissive postures, despite any "acted" demonstrations of discomfort. This is not about the sadistic (Hitchcock audience) attitude, but rather a vicarious shared domination/submission experience.
But Banner's having zero movement for 104 minutes, in which there is not even the genre's silly but lovable "hopping around" comic relief when a model in high heels with ankles bound will seek escape, is wearying. He changes the camera angle and uses editing rather than the Warholian gaze approach, but in each segment devoted to an individual model plus Julie after we've seen the victimized lady looking sexy and then topless, it's more a still photography or magazine come to life than actual cinema. A montage of mag photos would be about as arousing.
A dull but brief attempt for story or content has Summer Cummings as a police recruit sent on an undercover mission by police chief Banner to get the goods on Julie's S&M operation. Poorly staged against a blank white wall, the punchline of Banner telling an extra how he's bamboozled Summer, in league with Julie, falls as flat as any other of the late, unlamented auteur's efforts at dramaturgy.
Summer's uber-sexy costume before Julie makes her go topless is very impressive, as are low angle shots of her huge bare frontage when Simone has her suspended. Other greats like Amber Michaels deliver the eye-candy and future mistress of the medium Anastasia Pierce is the most animated of the bunch. But Julie's ho-hum precision, demonstrating binding skills but thoroughly zombie-like in her approach to her work, is a turnoff.
