Most of the films in this collection are simply silly. One is at least artistic in the old, wan sense of visual oddity.
There is one interesting one, though. Larry Clark’s “Impaled”. It is rather clever: young men seeking to get into the “business” are interviewed. All of them are sad losers and that saddest sack of the bunch is selected. He then interviews several women to select the one he wants to screw. They are all pros, and their stories and manner are every bit as sad, but post hope instead.
He selects the oldest; she obviously tries the hardest to entice him. She’s 40 and desperate to appear alluring. If we had nothing but her manner, we’d have enough to damn.
He is most excited about anal sex. He ends up getting defecated on, but they soldier on until the end.
It is a great take on the ugly behind of the industry.
