Director: Suzanne Hillinger
Cast: Asa Akira, Siri Dahl, Cherie DeVille

Pornhub: It’s obvious that you already know it; it’s clear to me. Let’s not pretend that we don’t — it’s Right there in the name — and choose to be adults about it instead of a gaggle of reptilian-brained adolescent shitposters who can’t so much as catch sight of someone they find attractive without devolving into the catcalling cartoon wolf from Red Hot Riding HoodLet’s get started!

Suzanne Hillinger’s documentary “The Last Days of the Living” (Total ControlThe following chart charts the history of the online adult entertainment site and the abuse and controversy that has plagued it.

Our review:

It’s essentially a get-out-the-horny-vote exercise, trying to persuade the people who enjoy porn to throw their political support behind the people who make it. It’s titillation with a side of radicalization. And if any teenagers whose folks have installed parental controls on their computers do watch this documentary late at night with the volume turned down, they’ll learn more about workers seizing the means of production than they learn about sex — which is far more dangerous to the powers that be than any bare breasts or asses.

Director: Darren Aronofsky
Cast: Brendan Fraser, Sadie Sink, Ty Simpkins

Recently minted Oscar Winner (Brendan Fraser, Best Actor; Hairstyling and Makeup) The Whale Now available at a lower rental cost

Our review:

The Whale, Aronofsky posits his sadism as an intellectual experiment, challenging viewers to find the humanity buried under Charlie’s thick layers of fat. That’s not as benevolent of a premise as he seems to think it is. This film assumes that a 600-pound man cannot be loved. It’s like walking up to a stranger on the street and saying, “You’re an abomination, but I love you anyway,” in keeping with the strong strain of self-satisfied Christianity that the film purports to critique. Audience members get to walk away proud of themselves that they shed a few tears for this disgusting whale, while gaining no new insight into what it’s actually like to be that whale. That’s not empathy. That’s pity, buried under a thick, smothering layer of contempt.
