The latest from avant garde smut director Jack The Zipper plays off of the whole Craigslist sex services thing that's been in the news lately, though the name has been changed to avoid any legal hassles. Craig'slist Compulsions features five scenes that are shot and set up to play along with that whole theme, wherein strangers meet up for sex with little regard to consequence or any sort of relationship aside from the encounter.
It's an interesting idea and Zipper's decision to shoot it in such a way to make it look like a cross between someone's hidden camera footage and a Robert Rodriguez movie gives it an interesting visual flair. That said, those same qualities will likely annoy some as there are plenty of moments here where the sacred penetration shot is shrouded in shadow. It fits within the context of the movie, but those who absolutely have to see everything at all times will walk away dismayed. That said, Zipper's film is an interesting one. It's plenty sexy and well cast, and hey it even features music from Jason Stewart, Joe Buck and the Dirty Ol' One Man Band himself, Scott H. Biram. What more could you want?
Scene 1 - Nikki Rhodes And Some Guy: When this scene starts off Roxy is in a box. He moves in on her and starts rubbing her tits and she wakes up. He picks her up and carries her to the couch and he eats her out. She gives him a nice long blowjob and then leans over the kitchen counter to get fucked from behind. She blows him again and then rides him cowgirl style for a bit before she gets on her back and puts her ankles to her ears so that he can pound away. She rides him reverse cowgirl before they spoonfuck for a bit, and then she drops to her knees and sucks him off until he blows his load into her mouth. She plays with his cum for a bit and then he puts her back into the box from whence she came.

Scene 2 - Annie Cruz And A Guy: The camera lingers on Annie for a bit as she teases us, playing with her breasts and talking to the camera. Her man comes into the room and she gives him head, getting really into it and sucking his balls a bit. She gets down on all fours and he eats her out from behind and then fucks her doggy style. She blows him again and then rides him reverse cowgirl and then cowgirl style, until he's ready to blow at which point he pulls out and shoots his load into her mouth which she promptly gobbles right down.
Scene 3 - Roxy DeVille And Some Man: This one is shot all Sin City style, black and white except for her red lips. Roxy talks on the phone and rubs herself to start things off and then it switches to a tattoo parlor and the footage is in full color. Roxy fingers herself some more and then she moves into another room where we see her suck cock POV style. She sits back on a chair and gets her pussy fucked missionary style, and then she leans over that chair and gets fingered from behind before she's fucked reverse cowgirl style. She bends over for some doggy style action and then drops to her knees to finish things off with a big ol' facial.
Scene 4 - Ashley Roberts And Nikki Rhodes And Some Lucky Bastard: Ashley struts in front of what looks like the Las Vegas skyline in black and white. It switches to color and she starts to rub her pussy for us. Nikki appears and the two go to bed. The suck one another's tits and then they go down on one another. A guy comes into the room and Ashley blows him while Nikki watches with her fingers in the fur. Ashley gets fucked missionary style and then doggy style, and he finishes inside her, Nikki masturbating the entire time.
Scene 5 - Prinzess Soboro And A guy: After a black and white tease scene, we see her drop to her knees up on the roof and start sucking the mystery man's cock. She blows him for a good long while and then bends over to get fucked doggy style. She sits down in a chair and takes it missionary style for a couple of minutes and then he pulls out and jerks himself off into her open mouth.
The 1.78.1 anamorphic widescreen shot on video production looks about average for a modern day gonzo fest, so it's not a bad looking movie. Some shots are a little bit dark but these are few and far between thankfully. There's also been some color tweaking throughout so expect an artsier look to much of the hardcore action. Skin tones look good and there aren't any problems with edge enhancement. Some shimmering shows up as do some minor mpeg compression artifacts but overall this is a perfectly acceptable as long as you keep the color tinting and artistic intent in mind while watching it. This was shot to look like it was captured incognito, so to speak, so it has a sort of 'hidden camera' feel to it.
The English language Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo track is pretty standard. There aren't any issues with hiss or distortion and the levels are all fine. The music sounds good and you can hear all the dialogue and moaning and groaning well enough.
First up, as far as the supplements are concerned, is the Go Go Girls feature which allows you to check out the girls stripping and fucking to a few musical numbers. Nikki Rhodes does her thing to the tune of Joe Buck's Evil Motherfucker, Ashley Roberts goes to town while Jason Stewart's Red Moon Express plays in the background, Roxy DeVille fingers her pussy to Joe Buck's I Will Survive and Annie Cruz goes to town while Jason Stewart's Tank Full, Headlights On plays behind her.
The Fucking Encore is a clip that runs just over ten minutes in which a sultry looking Roxy DeVille sucks a cock, rides it a bit, and then sucks it to a finish on her face. This segues into trailers for John Holmes Extreme Facials, Bacchanalle, Gorgeous Nympho Whores, and Angel Face. Some computer wallpaper images, animated menus and chapter selection are also included.
Craig'slist Compulsions is another interesting effort from Jack The Zipper and company. It's sexy, artsy and original and its well cast and well scored. The darkness that coats much of the action will annoy those who want a traditional gonzo fuck fest but appeal to those who appreciate artsy alt-porn. Recommended.
