About the film

A poignant study of the life and work of erotic auteur Joseph W. Sarno and his wife and collaborator, Peggy. Joe’s sexploitation films, despite being made on modest budgets, were characterized by stark black-and-white photography and an exploration of female emotions and desires. The women in his films really mattered, a characteristic that led the artist and former porn star Annie Sprinkle to dub him “the Ingmar Bergman of porn”. Dirty Movies is dappled with delightfully sleazy clips and tributes from academics and filmmakers, including Linda Williams and John Waters, as well as footage of Joe Sarno’s visit to the BFI in 2009. Through his film career we witness the dénouement to a subgenre, as hardcore begins to take over New York’s 42nd Street cinemas in the 1970s. The film is not only a timely reappraisal of a misunderstood film form but also a touching portrait of the marriage of Joe and Peggy and their remarkable artistic partnership.

świetny temat przedstawiony dość nudnie jak na tak "pikantną" tematykę (Hubi)
Film zdecydowanie nie jest o 'porno'. Jeden z ciekawszych na festiwalu. (Maciej)
