Audio/Visual: In a Nutshell - A Nice Anamorphic Widescreen Presentation
Hoping to fancy up the overall presentation of this otherwise standard sex film, Pulse Pictures and director Denis Marti aim for a colorful, cinematic 16x9 image, and they more or less achieve it. The 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer is terrific, though the typical handheld camerawork leaves a little to be desired. It takes away from the carefully controlled colors and contrasts when the lens is lumbering around like a drunk on payday. Still, the cabaret shots of the gals bumping and grinding are great, arguing for Marti's ability to shoot straight if and when he wants to.
Extras: In a Nutshell - An Extra Disc of Content Overdose
Pulse will please many a porno fan by placing all the added content on a bonus disc, leaving the first disc to hold all the dense digital dynamite of the transfer. The second DVD contains over an hour of Behind the Scenes material, most of it showing Marti on set, manipulating the actors and directing the action. In addition, we get a bonus bit of balling with our multitalented auteur giving Sarah Twain a nice hard humping. Initially, our female lead shows up in a black vinyl outfit and does a bit of that standard Marti cabaret. He then walks in, puts her on a leash and leads her to a room where Franco Trentalance is waiting. There, they break out the glass dildo for some toy action, blow job, V to M, Anal Cowgirl, Anal Mish, Anal Pile Driver, Gaping, Doggy, Pile Driver, and lots of A to M. The final $hot in Mouth seals the sexual deal. Overall, the supplemental material here is superb and makes an already recommendable DVD that much more valuable.
After a couple of years reviewing porn for DVD Talk, The Dirge has concluded that certain parts of the world view their wantonness in incredibly divergent lights. For us in America, we tend to go for either glitz or gonzo, completely professional or frighteningly amateurish. Truthfully, it matches our daft dreamer/instant gratification mindset rather well. Other parts of the world, especially Europe, apparently like it down and dirty, treating women like dominatable orifices and fucking as a full on contact sport – at least, this is the impression given by titles like Anal Aristocrats. Directed by Professianals auteur Denis Marti with the same flare for hardcore humping that he brings to that noted series, this five scene collection of carnal fireworks has some of the most intense, aggressive sexual interaction in modern adult films. But it's not the potency of the porking so much as the passion of the performers. They are not just putting on a show here. They really get into the gratuity, making scenes already wild and wicked wet with wantonness. Far more hardcore than XXX, Marti's movies explore the animalistic aspects of arousal, the joy in unbridled balling for the sheer pleasure of personal eros.
The Sex Scenes:
-- sponsored by --
At nearly two hours and forty-five minutes, each sequence here runs about 40 minutes, meaning that there's significant bang for your buck with each installment of sizzling shark. Most of the time, this is a clear benefit. When actor and actress bond in an obvious connection of interpersonal chemistry, we could watch them screw for hours. But, on occasion, the dynamic is less than effective and we grow bored waiting for the money moment to arrive. It rarely happens here, but it is the intrinsic flaw in any elongated sex scene. No one is penalizing Marti for trying to offer as many positions and possibilities as he can in a single guy on gal groove, but there will be times throughout Anal Aristocrats where you notice the level of lewdness slacking off. It has nothing to do with the cock or the cunt. It's purely a matter of time.
Scene 1:Lucy Lee, Denis Marti Acts Performed:Cabaret, Dildo Play, Blow Job, Cunnilingus, Salad Tossing, Butt Plug Action, Vagina Play, Doggy Dildo Action, Dildo V to M, Pile Driver, Face Fucking, Mish, Butt Plug DP in the Cowgirl Position, Butt Plug A to M, Anal Cowgirl, Attempted Gaping, Standing Anal Cowgirl, A to M, Anal Reverse Cowgirl, Toy DP in the Reverse Cowgirl Position, Anal Doggy, Ball Sucking, $hot in Mouth with Oral Clean-up Score:3.5 out of 5
Leave it to Mr. Marti to show the rest of his hired himbos how to get it done. First off, he chooses the incredibly hot brunette Lucy Lee as his pretend paramour. Then he walks her through an erotic bit of foreplay before laying down the log. There is lots of sexy toy tomfoolery here, with Ms. Lee loving all the attention her privates get. Marti maneuvers the dildos with ease, and it provides the perfect preparation for all the rock hard humping on the horizon. Once they start fucking, we see an unambiguous bond between the pair, and soon they are lost in a world of aroused abandon. If there is a downside to this dicking, it's the occasionally awkward DP. Fiddling with a faux phallus can instantly drain the desire out of a scene, and it almost does so here.
Scene 2:Rebecca Linares, Joe Monti Acts Performed:Bathtub Foreplay, Bath Buddy Dildo Action, Blow Job, Dildo Action, Dildo V to M, Doggy, Face Fucking, Mish, Toe Sucking, Mish with Finger Assistance, Foot Fucking, Reverse Cowgirl, 69, Anal Cowgirl, Anal Reverse Cowgirl, Attempted Gaping, Choking, A to M, Anal/Vaginal Doggy Switch Off, Anal Mish, $hot in Mouth Score:3 out of 5
With its unique bathtub setting and clever combination of water and wang work, this second installment of Anal Aristocrats suck and fuck is easily as good as the first, with one minor exception. Though she looks good with her cracks crammed with cock, Ms. Linares is a substantially lesser looker than her cast mates. She has a hound dog look to her face that distracts from her otherwise lithe, lilting body. Mr. Monti doesn't seem to mind, but it does take a little bit away from the wantonness. Otherwise, this is another example of Marti's masterful moviemaking. So many different positions are attempted and with all this bountiful banging comes some girded audience groins.
Scene 3:Sarah James, J.J. Acts Performed:Cabaret, Salad Tossing, Butt Plug Action, Butt Plug V to M by Man, Anal Butt Plug Play, Butt Plug A to M, Blow Job, Reverse Cowgirl, V to M, Pile Driver, Anal Doggy, Face Fucking, A to M, Anal Reverse Cowgirl, Anal Spooning, Advanced Butt Plug Play, A to M, Standing Anal Doggy, $hot to Mouth Score:2.5 out of 5
In a clear case of too much toy, the ever-present butt plug in and around Ms. James junctions really undermines much of this scene's heat. It's not that we mind the intrusion of this plastic extruded dingus into the sex, it's just that Sarah and J.J. obsess over it so. When they're not using it to poke and prod pussy and pooper, they're fumbling with it for a little A/V to M, or looking for it among the living room couch setting. Eventually, they do give up on the passion piston (at least for a little while) and during these moments the sex is sensational. Again, it's a testament to Marti that he always finds the angles and elements that really amplify the action. Sadly, the toy makes a return visit, leading to a rather anticlimactic money moment.
Scene 4:Vanessa, Denis Marti Acts Performed:Cabaret, Foreplay, Blow Job, Belt Around Neck, Ball Sucking, Shoe Fucking, Belt Cock Ring Action, Belt to Ass Slapping, Dildo Action, Dildo V to M, Cowgirl, Foot Jacking, Face Sitting, Reverse Cowgirl, Salad Tossing, Toy DP in the Spoon Position, A to M, Gaping, Anal Doggy, Anal Pile Driver, $hot to Mouth with Oral Clean-up. Score:3 out of 5
Everything that was said about Scene 1 can be duplicated here, with Vanessa coming across as an equal match to Lucy in the hotness department. The only reason this scene gets a slightly lower score is because of the desire to dwell on the gaping. Such gynecological gratuity has never been the Dirge's cup of tea, and Marti spends too much time manipulating his conquest's ass in hopes of delivering that quintessential rectal yawn. It quickly grows boring. Otherwise, when these two fuck, it's sensationally steamy.
Scene 5:Mandy Bright, Kid Jamaica Acts Performed:Cabaret, Salad Tossing, Cunnilingus, Butt Plug Action, Anal Fingering, Butt Plug V to M, Face Sitting, Blow Job, Deep Throating, Ball Sucking, Face Fucking, Mish, Pile Driver, V to M, Reverse Cowgirl, Anal Reverse Cowgirl, A to M, Butt Plug DP in Reverse Cowgirl Position, Anal Doggy, Anal Pile Driver, Squirting, $hot to Mouth with Oral Clean-up.
Score:3 out of 5
We learn that Mandy and Kid are a couple in the bonus material, and this may explain why an otherwise average performer and her meat puppet suitcase pimp deliver a dynamite final installment of erotica. Ms. Bright has a hard look to her features, and is pretty plump in the body shape dynamic. Mr. Jamaica is also problematic, as he was obviously hired as part of a package deal. Sure, his dick is fairly large, but it's difficult to see him as a standard male performer. Yet when they get together, their clearly defined passion for one another radiates off the screen, and we can't help but be swept up in the diddling dynamic. Kid really loves Mandy's ass, and the amount of time he spends in total tongue worship of her tushy is really exciting. Even with a final bit of butt overload (there is a lot of switching between the various dumper positions) this is still a stellar sequence, one that sends Anal Aristocrats off on a very high note.
Disco Dirge Peter Meter Rating:3.5 out of 5 (Highly Recommended) Cohabitation Certification:Granted
All his foreign fascinations aside, Denis Marti can direct some mighty powerful porn, and this excellent example of Euro-tantric tool and twat easily earns a Highly Recommended rating. In fact, the only thing keeping this title from earning the coveted Collector's Edition tag is the overwhelming amount of action in each scene. While it may seem strange to penalize an adult entertainment for aggrandizing the action, Anal Aristocrats is one film where just a smidgen of restraint would have equaled an instant backdoor classic. As it stands, this is still some of the most sizzling, steamy sex you will ever see, and we have the amazing Mr. Marti to thank for it. Couples will clearly cotton to this carnality, and a Cohabitation Certification is easily earned. This Mediterranean maestro sure knows how to deliver fuck and suck. Along with the always potent Professioanals, he is a true champion of the cheeks. Spending time with these daring dames of the derriere argues for smut's place as an enhancer of pleasure – and Marti's prominence as an adult performer/director.
