Inside Deep Throat Reviews

Hardly a revelation.

Although the film starts out with a clear thesis, by the time its 90 minute running length has expired, it is grasping at themes and topics that are beyond the limited scope of what a superficial documentary can achieve.

A little Lovelace and a lot of 85 year olds talking about it. It ain't pretty.

This lively, if maddeningly reductive documentary examines the influence of the low-budget 1972 film Deep Throat.

It's a fascinating story but not so fascinatingly told.

The documentary has no great overriding argument it wants to make -- neither about the politicians-turned-censors who thought the world was coming to an end nor about those who saw Deep Throat as the apotheosis of American liberty.

Bailey and Barbato aren't interested in classic documentary filmmaking. They're trendy dabblers in waste management, picking through the pop-culture trash to see what they can recycle for kitsch value.

Film Threat

Well-crafted and, in places, highly informative, but with the exception of some of the original film's hardcore sex scenes and the aforementioned Mob angle, there's little we haven't been exposed to before (no pun intended).

Amounts to little more than the making-of-featurette to a bad porno.

The free-speech agenda is so entrenched that the concept of pornography exploiting women seems to catch the directors flat-footed.

A fast and loose documentary that grabs you in the moment but leaves a distinct emptiness the morning after.

Deep Throat bore an X certificate. Inside Deep Throat is an NC-17. Neither is suitable for grownups.

Eager to tell one story, Inside Deep Throat neglects the more compelling story within it.

To me, at least, Inside Deep Throat felt drearily long (it's only about 90 minutes), and anyone who survived the anti-porn crusades of the '80s or the 'sex positive' porn of the '90s will find the arguments on all sides depressingly familiar.

This feeble documentary ends up perpetuating the very hypocrisy it means to probe.

A bubbly but superficial documentary that tells you what you already know -- there was a sexual revolution in the '70s, and its influence on society was both liberating and corrupting.

February 18, 2005
Jeff Vice
Deseret News, Salt Lake City

Unfortunately, just when the film really starts to explore an idea, it moves on to the next one. And the bit about how the adult-film industry has changed since the 1970s was done more effectively in the fictional Boogie Nights.

If I didn't know better, I'd almost think it was made to serve as a high-gloss but insubstantial extra for a DVD release of the hardcore blockbuster that inspired it.
