  • Destricted is a series of short films by directors and video artists ostensibly investigating the relationship between eroticism and pornography. A lot of them are dire.

  • Full of hardcore, show-all scenes of couples getting it on, it's supposed to provoke debate about sex and art. In reality, porn has rarely triggered so many yawns.

  • Wearing its presumed scandal value like a merit badge, porn omnibus Destricted loses almost all its salacious appeal as soon as it hits the screen.

  • The graphic content guarantees that this will attract sensationalist attention. But, beneath the provocation and pretention, there are some interesting ideas here -- even though they're not always subtly expressed.

  • [A] mixed bag.

  • Like real sex, this collection ranges from exhilarating to frustrating, from kinky to dull - and like real porn, it will have the viewer wishing at times for a fast-forward button.

    Words fail me. I knew what I was getting into before renting this - an artistic look at porn in our society from the point of view in short film by various film makers. Not really something I would generally be drawn to, but I thought I would give it a go to see the Larry Clark one. Of all, his would be the best film - he interviews some young guys looking to get into the industry and some of the girls. That is actually quite informative and brings some much needed humanity to this collection. Much of it is pretty gross and sterile. None of it, (in my opinion) is titilating - not what I was looking for anyhow, but I can figure some people would rent it thinking that. I'm sure there is some big statements being made here, but it's over my head. If you like Larry Clark, may be worth a look just to check out his short film, but otherwise couldn't really recommend this.

    Extremly over-rated. Short segments of erotic tales from directors not qualified to direct full-lenght movies. (OK Larry Clark and Gasper Noé is). Mostly just dull and "strange".. Which I can imagine that these directors like to be called. Marco Brambilla's Sync is the only segment with some paste and you can tell there's some work behind it. Larry Clark, whom I actually like, chooses to make a porno cast. But it can be ignored (just see a regular porno instead). Gaspar Noé.. I hate you...

    Where sex meets art. And then they both meet boredom. I know the films are made as art, and don't necessarily have to have a narrative (even though, one of the better shorts, Clark's Impaled has a very loose narrative, probably making it my favourite), and much it's much like watching the Cremaster films (speaking of Cremaster, Barney's film was pretty good in this too) only with more dudes whacking off. The one I rented this one for, Noe's, We Fuck Alone, was decent if only for it's audacity with it's strobe effect and constantly moving camera à la Irreversible, but when it comes right down to it, it's just more whacking off. My suggestion is, if you watch it, view it in sections just to keep hardcore boredom at bay.

    An extraordinarily tedious collection of X-rated short art flicks.
