Kimberly Kane's latest directorial effort for Vivid-Alt plays out around a young woman trying to get out of a life of drugs and prostitution to make it as a country musician in Nashville! Unfortunately for her, there are some who would like to keep her where she is and stop her from even attempting to make it. If that weren't the case, we wouldn't have much of a story, would we?
But what about the sex? I knew you'd ask...
Scene 1 - Audrey Hollander And Faith Leon: This fantastically sexy girl-girl scene kicks the film off with a bang. These two look beautiful together, all pale white skin and big pretty eyes as they go back and forth doing their nifty lesbo thing. Faith picks up the hitchhiking Audrey and they soon pull over to the side of the road to make out and tongue fuck each other. Faith just happens to have a big double ended dildo in her glove box that the girls put to good use. At the end of the scene one of the girls uses a pistol on the naughtiest of ways - quite daring and ripe with phallic symbolism! The whole scene is shot nicely and there is some seriously hot chemistry between these two girls. Hot, hot, hot.
Scene 2 - Ashley Blue And Jerry: Cute and versatile Ashley Blue teases Jerry with a nifty little dance routine. She bends over and shows off her ass and pussy from behind and then he forces her to give him head. She doesn't complain too much, in fact, she's pretty into it, and things get incredibly sloppy here. Jerry fucks Ashley from a few of the standard positions we all know and love, eventually slipping it in the back door for a little ass play. He pulls out and shoots his load all over her face and ends this semi-rough scene. Ashley seems to excel in scenes like this and her work here is no exception.
Scene 3 - Kimberly Kane And Three Guys: Kimberly is sucking Otto Bauer's cock hard and fast with a noose around her neck when this scene begins. She slobbers all over his cock and her cleavage and really goes at it before bending over and letting him fuck her from behind. She holds onto the chains on the roof while he ravages her from a few different angles and then goes back to sucking his dick. Two other guys (Daniel and Julius Ceazher) come in and start working her over, her make up gets all smeared and she's covered in spit. She gets fucked from behind and sucks dick at the same time. Otto fucks her doggy style, pulls out and shoots onto her asshole while the other two guys come into her mouth. A little rougher than this reviewer tends to like it, this is never the less a very well done scene. Kimberly really gives her all here and it's performances like this that make it obvious why the cult of Kane continues to grow...

Scene 4 - Jada Fire And Zak Atak: These two are making out on the couch. She pulls out his cock and gives him head, and then she rides him reverse cowgirl and cowgirl style. She bends over and he fucks her doggy style from behind and then pulls out to shoot all over her massive tits. This is the quickest scene on the disc but it's a decent one. Jada dominates it and takes control and she looks very nice as she does it.
Scene 5 - April Flores And Kimberly Kane: April and the slightly chubby but incredibly sexy April Flores are playing around backstage. They start kissing and one thing leads to another. April gets on all fours and Kimberly works her shaved pussy over from behind. They wrestle and lick each other then break out a strap-on dildo which Kimberly wears. April sucks it, and then gets on her back for some missionary style penetration. Kimberly slaps her face and tells her to shut up as she fucks her. Kimberly gets on all fours and April eats her out from behind, paying attention to her ass and her pussy and then fucking her with a glass dildo which she makes her taste. They move into a sixty-nine, a big mess of pale white flesh and flickering tongues, then April sucks Kimberly's cunt while Kimberly smokes a blunt. They play with a dildo then April sits on Kimberly's face and rides it until she climaxes. This was just as hot as the first girl-girl scene that the movie opened with. These two are having fun and it shows and they are obviously into one another as they fuck with mucho gusto and look incredibly hot as they do it. Yowza!
Scene 6 - Audrey Hollander And Otto Bauer: Audrey gives Otto a rough, sloppy hummer, sucking him right down to the short and curlies. She gets on all fours and he puts his hand into her mouth as he fucks her doggy style. Another guy (Alex Gonz maybe?) comes into the frame and she gives them both head. Audrey gets fucked from behind while she slobbers on Otto's dong, and then he shifts gears on her and fucks her in the ass while she keeps sucking and slobbering. Both guys shoot into her open mouth ending the scene and the film.
The girl-girl scenes were the highlights here but the other four scenes are all very well done. The sex in this film is remarkably hot with a lot of very sincere looking enthusiasm in amongst the moaning and groaning and spitting and spooging. The film is shot in a fairly gritty style but the aesthetic is consistent with the story and the tone and Kane has done a very good job seeing this project through.
Morphine looks really good in this 1.78.1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. Keep in mind that some scenes are intentionally grainy looking, but otherwise this transfer is solid. Colors look natural is a little one the muted side (probably for artistic effect) while the cinematography seems to play up the natural contrasts between the performers. Slight shimmering is present but there aren't any issues with mpeg compression artifacts or heavy edge enhancement.
The English language Dolby Digital 2.0 track on this disc is pretty decent. Dialogue stays clean and clear and there aren't any problems with hiss or distortion. The score in particular sounds quite good (why wasn't this included as a bonus CD - Vivid Alt has done this in the past and this is one of their best scores!) and the levels are all well balanced.
First up is a commentary track with director Kimberly Kane who is joined by April Flores. There are a few interesting tidbits of information in here - the gun used in the first scene is a prop but Kimberly mentions she has fucked a girl with a real gun before. It wasn't loaded. Kane does most of the talking here, noting that she has to have things her way when working on a movie. They express their admiration for all the performers and talk about where much of the film was shot. They giggle and laugh a lot during their scene together and Kimberly talks about what parts of the movie she was concerned would be trimmed and why. It's a reasonably interesting track and it seems like all involved had a good time on the production.
Up next is The Sugar Shack Confessional Featurette (9:11) is an interesting documentary where Kane explains what the Sugar Shack is and what it was like working there. It was sort of a strip mall of debauchery run by a taxidermist. She talks about some of the strange jobs she took there and what it was like living and working with some of the bizarre characters who hung out at this fine establishment. Apparently she almost died trying to dance to the full length version of Freebird, proving that too much Lynard Skynard really can be bad for you.
Rounding out the extra features is a cool slideshow of behind the scenes photos set to music from the score, trailers for The Doll Underground, The Bad Luck Betties, and Dana DeArmond's Role Modeling. Animated menus and scene selection is also included.
Morphine has got some ridiculously hot sex scenes and style to spare. Those who don't already dig what Vivid-Alt are doing won't be won over but anyone with an appreciation for slick visuals, sexy wardrobe, rough sex and killer compositions should give this a chance. It's pretty far removed from the gonzo norm but it's very well made and plenty hot. Highly recommended.
