The latest from alt-porn wunderkid Eon McKai and his Vivid Alt line, Content is a strong collection of five solid scenes shot with a weird sense of humor and an interesting eye for composition. There isn't really a plot at all, despite some interesting introductory bits to each scene, but those who appreciate McKai's style will find a lot to love about this newest endeavor...
Scene One - Kimberly Kane And Mr. Pete: After a bit of prepping and fooling around these two start making out pretty passionately. Kimberly's top comes off and Pete shows her tits some love before she drops down and gives him one of those killer sloppy blowjobs that she's pretty well known for. Pete plays with Kimberly's snatch and uses his fingers on her for a while before he flips her over and mounts her. She plays with her clit while he goes at it and then he fingers her ass. She blows him again and after that he fucks her ass while sucking on her toes a bit. They move into a sixty nine and he finishes up in her mouth and ends this strong, aggressive and well shot scene. Those digging Kimberly with the black hair will appreciate seeing that look on display here.
Scene Two - Coco Velvett And Danny Wylde: Coco teases us and Danny for a bit, giggling and playing on an ottoman until he starts to make out with her. She gets out of her clothes and he works her tits over until she decides to suck his cock. He chokes her a bit as she goes down on him and then he fucks her from a few different angles. She rides him and then pulls off to suck him some more before climbing back on top for some more bumping and grinding. She sucks him to a finish all over her chest and he slaps her around a bit towards the end. This isn't a bad scene though it lacks the intensity and heat of the first one. Coco's pretty easy on the eyes though and she starts to get pretty into the scene which helps to turn up the intensity level.

Scene Three - Madison Young And Dane Cross: Pretty red headed Madison and Dane start making out pretty quickly once this scene starts. The kissing and tongue play leads to a bit of choking and titty play. She drops and gives him head and takes him all the way into her throat. The room is pretty dark, and McKai and company are playing with the lighting a lot here which might annoy some, though I personally thought it added something interesting and almost mysterious to the mood. Regardless, after the sucking, there's some fucking, right? Right, but not before Dane eats her out and crams a whole bunch of fingers into her box. He chokes her a bit as he fucks her and then pulls out so that she can blow him some more before he fucks her up the ass. He pulls out again for some more oral before stuffing her ass one last time to then pull out and blow his load into her mouth. This is a third hot scene in a row and Madison's a pretty serious fox. She's enthusiastic, fun to look at, and pretty into her work - three core qualities of a good porno starlet in this writer's book.
Scene Four - Cali Nova And Ben Jammin: This is a more gentile scene than the first three but it's a strong one never the less. In a dark room these two kiss quite a bit before Ben's fingers head south and he give her pussy a pretty serious work out. He eats her pussy and then she returns the oral favors before he climbs on top of her and later she on top of him for a bit of the old in-out. Ben pulls out and finishes with some help from his hand onto her face. Eschewing the rough stuff from the first three scenes in favor of some sincere chemistry works in this scenes favor.
Scene Five - Kitty McMuffin And Sherwood: Last but not least we've got Kitty 'Meow Meow' McMuffin who approaches Sherwood who, at the beginning of the scene, is jerking off. He smacks her ass and crams his fingers into her mouth and then chokes her a bit as he has her go down on him. He smacks her face a few times as she blows him and then she gets her tits out for him to play with. Really into working her clit over, she spreads her legs and lets him in for a while and they go at it from a few different angles and positions and then he pulls out and shoots his load onto her face.
McKai and company aren't really deviating from the quirky little porno world they've shown us in past productions but they do what they do very well and Content is no exception. The sex is hot and the girls are all as enthusiastic as they are attractive. The feature finds that nice balance between arthouse creativity and hardcore eroticism and each scene builds nicely before going full tilt into the actual penetration scenes. The camera work is going to be a turn off for some, as it's pretty erratic and it doesn't always concentrate on the close up shots that gonzo enthusiasts might require, but this is pretty good stuff and it's at least something a bit more unique than your standard five scene stroke-fest.
This shot on video production looks pretty clean presented here in a reasonably stable 1.85.1 anamorphic widescreen presentation. There is some mild shimmer in a couple of spots and a noticeable bit of mpeg compression evident in some of the darker colors and the blacks but other than that, there's not a lot to complain. Skin tones look nice and natural, the compositions are dead on, and aside from the fact that this digital video production looks like a digital video production and as such suffers from the minor defects usually associated with the format, everything is coming up roses as far as the look of the film is concerned. Any softness that appears on camera, and there's a fair bit of it, seems to be intentional and even if it isn't, it works. Do keep in mind, however, that this movie has a very look to it so if you need your gynecological close ups to be really bright and harshly lit, this might not do it for you.
The Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround track is quite sufficient. The dialogue comes through cleanly and clearly as do all of the moans and groans. The guitar driven soundtrack is mixed in properly at a decent level to make sure that we can hear both the music as well as the performers as the same time. Bass response is nice and lively and overall, for a porno movie, this is a way, way better than average effort and it actually sounds really good.
The only really substantial extra on the disc is a behind the scenes segment (20:00) where McKai and his cast and crew working it on set. There's some interesting interviews here with the performers as well as with McKai himself that explain what the intent was with this project and which give us a fairly intimate look into what went into making it and getting it finish.
Rounding out the extras are trailers for The Doll Underground, Girls Lie, and On My Dirty Knees, all fine Eon McKai projects and a decent still gallery of promotional shots which is actually worth going through (the stills are pretty great). Animated menus and scene selection are also included.
The extras aren't as impressive as past releases from the line but the sex definitely delivers and Vivid has supplied a well authored disc to house it all on. This won't convert those who don't like McKai's style but his established fanbase will definitely like what he's done here and as such, Content comes recommended.
