|01.04.06||Weird Wednesday|| AKA Chicks in Chains AKA Emanuelle Reports from a Women's Prison AKA Violence in a Women's Prison, this week's weird wednesday was kind of a mixed bag. On one hand, Laura Gemser was like barely in it and barely did anything besides stare off into space when she was on-screen (The operatic Emanuelle in America trailer that they showed beforehand proves much better justification for the Gemser fan club) but that doesn't mean there aren't some good moments with other characters in the film. Stereotypical mexican landscaper Miguel is awesome in the three scenes he's in, and the name of the sissyboy in the men's prison (yeah i know, what is a men's prison even doing in this movie?) is classic: Leander. Overall though, I find that the promise of a women in prison flick is always better than the actual movie. You'd think it would be pretty hard to mess up but i dunno.. maybe when it comes to women in prison i just have more precise fetishistic pleasures or something... they are never as good as i want them to be though. This one's no different, but one of the reels was really messed up with what at first looked like a monster hair that quickly spawned into this really abstract shuttering line dance across the screen. After trying his best a few times, the projectionist just ran what he could with the odd obstructions flying around the gate until the reel finally blew up and he switched to the next one. This whole segment completely revitalized my interest in the film. The hairs/decomposing film stuff looked like an early Underworld video superimposed on the picture, and with just a little stretch they actually enhanced the picture (at one point, a lecherous dude sits down on the bed and feels up Gemser in typical pre-rape glee... a little end of whatever was flipping around up there in the projector stuck out of the dude's groin and started vibrating at the end)... and then with the nice cut in time, there was a little leap there to wonder what all happened during... so all in all i'd say the presentation difficulties added to my enjoyment.|
plus i got to use my alamo gift card. best gift ever.
