Fake and fraudulent: let me count the ways
I've never understood why professional pornographers would eventually imitate their amateur counterparts, as the paying audience dwindles for their work, but this Wicked Pictures "series" (only 2 have been issued so far) is a prime example.
There are no credits on screen, and we are supposed to believe that the professional actors and actresses on screen are "civilians", caught having sex out on the street or back alleys by amateur photographers for our listening and dancing pleasure as home viewer voyeurs.
Intentionally poor photography, often from long distances so one can't see what's going on (or whether the Wicked safe-sex condoms are in use) makes for five boring segments that take porn back many decades to the one-day wonder era. But it's so ersatz as to be annoying rather than charmingly crude.
Alexa Grace humping away in a back alley is barely recognizable from the distance, while scenes of sex in a laundromat or other public venue are met with disinterest by the extras portraying stray passers-by. At one point a guy snaps some photos with his cell phone and is phonily attacked by the first-person pornographers.
This merely adds up to one of the worst releases, out of thousands, in Wicked Pictures' once illustrious history.
