Extra's: For most of you, the best extra will be the five unrelated scenes lasting 45:54 minutes. I described some of them below with a scenes from Flasher, Off the Hook, Savanna's Been Blackmaled, Stood Up, and $2 Bill. There was also a photogallery, trailers for movies like Brand New Faces #4, a biography for Savanna Samson, and some spam. My personal favorite extra though was the 11:29 minute Behind the Scenes feature by Graham Crack Herr as it spent considerable time interviewing the ladies (some with a lot of humor) and showing more of the sexual activity taking place in the scenes; even if it was only in letterbox form.

Audio/Video Quality: 59 Seconds was presented in the same 1.78:1 ratio anamorphic widescreen color it was shot in by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment. For those unfamiliar with his background, suffice it to say that his experience outside of porn is superior to many inside the industry and it shows up in his movies, including this one as shot in HD, though presented in the SD format (for now) as shot in 1080i (per the BTS footage) to provide a lot of resolution supporting some of the effects (making it look more like a real movie than just a porno). The lighting was well handled and this added to the pleasure of watching the gals in play during their scenes. The composition of the camera angles and lighting were almost always optimal this time, Skow seeing fit to try and enhance the look of the ladies at every turn as possible. The fleshtones were accurate this time and the DVD mastering was well done (if in a bitrate hovering around the mid 3 to lower 4 Mbps area), making it a mixed bag in terms of visual quality; leaning towards above average thematically but not covering all the basics as well as expected (I even saw some aliasing on Savanna's stockings for example). The audio was presented in a 2.0 Dolby Digital English (in 192 Kbps) offering with the vocals sounding flat and the music pretty decent. For some reason, the levels were about the same as usual but aside from the added background music, the dynamic range was average and the separation of the vocal track nonexistent. In terms of the music, it was sometimes surreal but added another layer to the production, I believe Miles Long being credited at the end of the movie for it.

Body of Review: B. Skow might be the most talented director at Vivid Entertainment these days but he is generally handed the gonzo projects more than features. When he does get a feature though, he shows some care into the numerous elements that comprise a movie, the latest case of this being in 59 Seconds. The premise of the movie concerns a gal played by Savanna Samson that nearly dies in an accident, finding herself trapped in a place where she can explore all her sexual fantasies while the powers that be determine whether or not she will survive. The hint of plotted points was not lost on me but the fans out there will mostly appreciate how often the contract hotty got to strut her stuff with various partners. The addition of Lanny Barby and other top notch performers added to the appeal of the movie for me as well. The back cover said it like this: "Kim (Savanna Samson) teeters on the brink of life and death after suffering a near-fatal accident. As surgeons struggle to bring her back to the world of the living, Kim's mind hovers in a limbo designed to entertain her deepest, darkest fantasies, known as the "Cerebral Net." With a little help from her guide Gabriel, Kim navigates the "C. N.," enacting all the pleasures of life never-realized. Including a sexual ravaging at the hands of four desperate men. 59 Seconds...less than a minute...but more than you could ever imagine." If that sounds good to you, here's a quick look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used:
Scene One: Interrelated Desires: Lexi Love, one of the most popular ladies at the recent AEE due to her fan friendliness, was up first in a scene that amounted to a fetish with solo act. She showed her hairy pussy to a pervert and then proceeded to trim it down. This led to shaving and some solo teasing before it cut away to the medical scenario taking place in the real world. I wanted more Lexi but it served the story well enough.
Scene Two: The Hottest Bitch: Savanna Samson, the babe featured on the front cover, was up next in a lesbian cheerleader scene with Hillary Scott and Sammie Rhodes. The trio were anything but a generic scene as the company is accused of making for so many years; the hardcore use of toys and sexually aggressive antics of the ladies let loose making it a fine example of their increasingly hardcore attitude (at least in Skow's movies). Savanna was the leader of the pack and looked a lot closer to her pals in terms of age than one might guess. Hillary had the filthiest mouth and Sammie could have used a few meals but apart from being over the top, it had some stroke value (and those of you that watch it closely enough will find a surprise or two...).
Scene Three: Trippy: Lanny Barby, the busty brunette bombshell contract gal at Vivid, her stripper pal Kimberly Franklin, and Sascha, were up next in the hospital as Savanna watched them from a safe distance. There was also a fair amount of lesbian action included here but the ladies did not neglect their duties to service Sascha as the oral included some fine knob slobbing action. Kimberly was almost as sexually aggressive as Lanny when it came to sucking dick but both of them carried on as if driven by a need for seed. The penetrative sex was also active as both gals did a fine job of draining his balls dry by the end of the action; Sascha jerking off to Kimberly's face and Lanny's crotch.
Scene Four: Uptight Neighbor: Tory Lane, a brunette spitfire now under contract as a director elsewhere, was up next with muscular Jay Huntington and third tier mope Harley in front of a fireplace. Tory represented Savanna's uptight neighbor that was hot but in dire need of a hard fuck to fix her attitude. If that was what she needed, she definitely got fixed since the gal tore into the cock like a banshee; sucking and fucking as hard as she ever does in her works for Mayhem. Tory was athletic and bounced hard on the cock between doing taste testing; showing as much affinity for anal as she did for a pure vaginal pounding (maybe more!). There was surprisingly limited DP footage this time though and even while I don't care for it much myself, it seemed the place to mention it for her fans. The end result of this workout was Tory taking both of their loads to her face; giving her a beard made of semen before the scene cut away. Whew!
Scene Five: Home Sweet Home: Savanna Samson, playing a content housewife on a sitcom (complete with laugh track), with Jay Huntington in an unlikely but perfect situation. Her pink lingerie and ponytail looked great on her but she seemed to have some added chemistry going on with Jay. He went down on her for a lengthy time and fingered her heartily to make her truly juicy (feeding her some of it off his fingers before vaginally hammering away at her). Savanna kicked back and enjoyed his powerful strokes inside of her a lot but wanted to taste herself off his rod so she settled in for a prolonged hummer. They screwed all around the house, both inside and out, until it got dark outside which was when she finished him off and took the facial. This lengthy scene could have been paced better but she was in her element all the same.
Scene Six: Study Hall: Savanna Samson, up last as a teacher in front of a group of meat puppets including Evan Stone, Marco Banderas, Christian, and Jay Huntington, showed her last gangbang was not a fluke; she really likes a bunch of guys at the same time. She made sure each of the men had learned the lessons she was teaching by testing them with an impromptu quiz involving skills; Evan playing dumb which resulted in her calling him "Mr. Smarty Trousers" (making me laugh out loud). Evan's cock was the first one to fuck her face and the others soon joined him as they took turns getting blowjobs and tapping her pussy on the table. Savanna was have a tremendous amount of fun with this scenario and considering the first scene of hers I ever saw was a gangbang, it made sense to me that as her career slowly starts ending, she return to her roots. She did some anal here and pushed back against the cock penetrating her pucker, but it was largely driven by oral and vaginal sex before the men popped loads of semen on her face and crotch. Whoa!
Bonus Scene: Off the Hook: Hillary Scott, the award winning anal princess (we've discussed at length whether I should call her a princess or queen; the lady flattered by either so I'll stick with my gut feeling here), and hotty Sunrise Adams, were up next after a brief walk in the cold outside. The cold air made their nipples hard and they discussed how Hillary got a splinter in her ass so they went to the couch for Sunrise to play medical assistant. She used her teeth to get the splinter out, savoring the taste of Hillary's ass as the scene took off from their. The licking, sucking, and caressing were all plainly in evidence as the ladies went back and forth to turn each other on. Sunrise used a moderate vibrator on Hillary's ass and both gals poured on the dirty talk; reversing their roles to make Sunrise the receiver before too long. Whether they were acting or actually getting into one another is a matter for discussion but they seemed to be having fun if not truly getting off so I liked this scene too.
Bonus Scene: Savanna's Been Blackmaled: Sammie Rhodes, Kimberly Kane, and Savanna Samson, were up next as the first two gave Savanna a healthy little massage on the bed with lots of oil. I love oil on a gal's body and Savanna's ass looked especially nice to me with her friends rubbing her naked form really well. For her part, she did not passively enjoy the action since she felt them up too; the ladies licking each other in the fullness of time as they completed their lesbian romp (with ass licking, fingering, and all sorts of heated permutations). I thought this was one of the best scenes for what it tried to convey; the ladies coming off like they were getting off from the looks and sounds of it all.
Bonus Scene: Stood Up: Lanny Barby, the beautiful brunette gonzo gal contract gal at Vivid I've appreciated so much, was up next with another curvy brunette in the form of Kimberly Franklin, at a bachelor party in 1982 New jersey. The gals drove the men wild as their skimpy lingerie showed their respective assets nicely until Bob was sent packing by Lee Stone playing a character proving to be a cross between Fonzie and Andrew Dice Clay (the obvious dialogue being that "Andy" stole Bob's dirty nursery rhymes to become a popular comic. The gals serviced Lee as aggressively as he orally worked them over, Lanny proving to be the focal point of the scene though the gals shared him throughout the action. Lanny's oral skills were nothing short of amazing and her penetrative performance was sweet too. Kimberly was no slouch either and the resulting taste testing enhanced the passionate trio as they did each other with a sense of abandon I doubt many think Vivid is capable of showing (those many being ignorant as to the changes that have taken place). The gals shared the facial action and the camera faded out as they stroked each other. Yum!
Bonus Scene: $2 Bill: Tory Lane, one of the most skilled brunette newcomers in porn, was up next in a bedroom scene with Trent Tesoro as he diddled her pussy with a large metallic vibrator upon arriving home to their apartment. She turned on her special reserve of energy and gave him a powerfully sweet blowjob, never losing eye contact with him as she worked him over in a passionate fashion. He gave her some oral too but it wasn't on the same scale of quality as hers was. In my estimation, she's one of the premiere oralists in porn and this scene showed it in spades. The scene then switched to vaginal sex and she was just as active as he boned home on her tight pussy, making me think she was a close second place to Lanny (though more vocal) for passion and heat. The scene ended when he bathed her from crotch to neck in semen.
Summary: 59 Seconds by director B. Skow for Vivid Entertainment had some rough patches in need of polishing up and I wasn't all that keen on the choice to make the sex all look surreal (as well as give it the appearance of being shot on film, though it wasn't) but it earned a rating of Recommended all the same for the chemistry, the heat, and the copious amounts of copulation taking place by some of the most talented performers in porn. In short, fans of Savanna Samson will definitely need to pick up a copy of 59 Seconds for their collection but fans of features should find plenty to enjoy here as well.
