X2 (DVD Review)

Speaking of awesome: Andrew Blake is a legend in the erotic entertainment industry, but he’s been less than visible in recent years. His high-end, richly textured features have become almost a porn cliche, because they’re so stylized that some folks find them alienating. How vividly I remember my first anthology, where in her story “Tiffany’s Shitty Night” deathrock diva Danielle Willis described her stand-in character’s ripe fantasy about secretly splicing a Ron Jeremy cumshot into the Rayban-endowed “perfect yuppie porn” of Andrew Blake.

Now that I’ve had the opportunity to watch about 100,000,000 porn movies, I have to say that Blake seems a lot less pretentious and a lot more interesting. It’s not quite like any porn you’ve seen, probably; it’s closer to the conspicuously fine-art treatments of fetish videos than to the grunting spurts and “spank that ass!!” of most Porn Valley fare. Blake certainly has artistic pretensions — and not without cause; the colors, textures and settings here create visual vignettes that are as hot as they are beautiful.
