Movie Info

David Kittredge directs this chilling, erotic indie about obsession in the adult film world. Over a decade ago, a gay porn star named Mark Anton left the industry, seemingly vanishing into the ether right as his career was picking up steam. Though everyone had a scandalous theory about why he left, no one sought the truth -- until now. When Michael, a young researcher, comes across the story, he decides to investigate, and quickly spirals into a frightening, supernatural fun house of snuff

Despite marvelously moody visuals and a tantalizing setup, Pornography: A Thriller finally puzzles more than it pleases.

Ambitiously layered and almost completely incoherent.

Taken independently, these chapters probe the thorny porn star-viewer exchange, but Kittredge can't connect the dots into a worthy climax. In other words: all foreplay, no full release.

Writer-director David Kittredge's spooky, ambitious thriller about the mysterious fate of a gay porn star is equal parts David Lynch, The Fluffer and 8mm.

Frustratingly elliptical and slightly convoluted, but unconventionally and intriguingly structured enough to maintain suspense amidst its tangled web of blurred realities.

Pornography is more in love with the notion that a thriller could come to life in a porn setting than with what is actually interesting and relevant about its subject matter.
