Cast: Tori Black, Rebeca Linares, Mark Ashley, Manuel Ferrara, Marie Luv, Ice Cold, Kristina Rose, Mick Blue, James Deen
Length: 197:17 minutes
Tori Black and Rebeca Linares
Date of Production: 8/15/2009
Extras: The best extra was the 9:48 minute long Behind the Scenes feature that showed a lot of enthusiasm and energy on the sets of the movie. Mason was clearly in charge and the cast was having a lot of fun as usual with Mason interjecting comments but Tori making it clear she wanted to be there working for the director in this spotlight hit. There were also a trailer for the show, a photogallery, a pop shot recap, and some spam for those that care.

Audio/Video Quality: Tori Black Is Pretty Filthy was presented in a decent 1.78:1 ratio widescreen color as released by director Mason for Elegant Angel using the high definition AVC codec with 1080 resolution. The camera work was generally solid with plentiful lighting to eliminate grain, video noise and shadows so the picture appeared to be in line with her other work to date. Mason has made or assisted on a number of titles over the years, the technical matters taking back seat (pun intended) to the raw energy of the sex, but her skill levels have definitely been improving with the camera too, showing she pays attention for those that care. I saw no compression artifacts thanks in part to the 13.6 Mbps video bitrate and the composition of the camera angles strongly favored the female performers as most of her work these days tends to do. The fluid nature of the compositional work aside though, the editing by Bossman Hall helping to enhance this one in large part too, a couple of abrupt changes not indicative of the larger amount of transitions handled just right. The 2.0 Dolby Digital English track was pretty basic with little separation or dynamic range yet I could hear the cast well enough in most cases. For those keeping track, the audio was offered in a 256 Kbps offering with a 48 kHz sampling rate, plenty of room considering how little took place on it but leaving room for future efforts too. The music came from My Beat Shop & Stock Music Site (HundredKarat Producers, Capncrunk, 7Dollabeats, MX47, and Team Green) and was appreciated in each case, the edits helping make the blending of sight and sound especially heated during the montage openings.

Body of Review: Mason is one of the most creative directors at Elegant Angel these days, her hardcore smut making people stand up to take notice. Of particular interest to me is when she spotlights an individual performer and allows the gal free reign on doing some of the hardest sex of her life, such was the case with recently released Tori Black Is Pretty Filthy Blu-ray. As a general rule of thumb, I find Tori Black to be one of the most physically attractive young ladies in porn and have sung her praises as such for a long time now but the flip side of that coin is that many of her performances simply lacked true heat, passion, and energy as well as chemistry. Over the last year though, she has truly started to come into her own with various performances in sitcum parodies, other gonzo work, and even her own virtual sex release where she upped the ante with her fanny (in Interactive Sex with Tori Black), elevating her status for me in a big way. So Mason's touch is almost designed to become the icing on the proverbial cake if her past titles in this vein are any indicators of how heated this one will be. One point it advertises is the movie containing Tori's first non-POV anal scene (and with Manuel Ferrara!) but she also does interracial and threesomes too, all that was missing was a blowbang or gangbang to convert her into a raincoater's dream girl. The company website described the show like this: "Elegant Angel proudly presents, "Tori Black Is Pretty Filthy." The sensationally beautiful Tori Black, performs in her 1st non-POV anal scene with former AVN male performer of the year, Manuel Ferrara, directed by the award winning Mason. This movie is a celebration of sexuality featuring a collection of diverse scenarios and locations. It is also a celebration of one of the most beautiful stars ever to grace the adult industry, and it features some of her most powerful performances yet." Here's a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Tori Black and Kristina Rose
Scene One: Tori Black, the sexy little strumpet featured on the front cover (and in every scene of the movie), was up first along with award winning hotty Rebeca Linares, the two gals teasing in skimpy bikinis on a public beach. The slow paced tease was okay but they then ended up bathing together, using the handheld nozzle to clean off every square inch of each other before they started putting their moves in. They caressed and ate each other outside with a transition to a couch where the gals began sucking off muscular Mark Ashley, showing him that sharing is caring with their lollipop antics. Tori was more interested in getting boned though, Mark drilling her very hard even though she was loud but passive initially. Rebeca helped her along but as hot as she was, she never made any significant effort to push back or ride the cock, her oral still above average even as the gals shared the wad of genetic juice launched at their faces. In short, it was a rocky start compared to Mason's previous works like this, perhaps showing Tori as she was walking into the movie (my hopes were still high).
Scene Two: Tori Black, having given an interview between the scenes (which she kept doing as the movie progressed), was up next with studly Manuel Ferrara, the chemistry between the pair noticed immediately, even with Tori and Mason kidding about what special act was going to take place (teasing him that it would be a strap on scene where he'd be receiving). The camera then showed the two of them together, Manuel still clothed but Tori naked as he diddled her with his hand, her juices loud enough as he continued to draw some attention. She rested on a white couch for him to go down on her, his clothes coming off so she could slob his knob. They began with some basic vaginal and she already seemed to be more active, perhaps her past issues were due to who she was partnered with, her vocals encouraging him to give it to her harder as they kissed. The heated vaginal romp then showed her doing a fine job but wanting more, moving to the anal where she slowed down considerably. Frankly, I'd have been happy for her to just keep riding his cock in her snatch like she wanted it, that being my main issue with her performances over the years, her own orgasms noticed but the gal driving past them for more. Manuel soothed her as they pushed past her pain threshold and she became quite the anal cock whore, doing ATM and breathing hard thanks to her partner on her "A list" taking good care of her. In all then, this was the best scene of hers I have seen to date and she took his wealth of population pudding into her mouth at the end very nicely, the couple even going back for sloppy seconds. Whew!
Scene Three: Tori Black, initially dressed in gangster style, was up next but as she stripped to the upbeat music, her sexy black lingerie was particularly sweet, the camera emphasizing her sweet ass as she swayed to and fro. She was paired up with skinny Marie Luv too, the ladies caressing and going down on each other on the white couch in the living room. Marie looked too thin this time and while it has been awhile since I've seen her, she still had some appeal all the same. Tori was the dynamo of the scene though and just as they were getting into it the most, in walked black moper Ice Cold. The ladies pounced on his pecker orally, double teaming him as they worked him to the bone, still giving each other a lick or three but concentrating on his pleasure from that point on. Tori seemed to take a step back in terms of her performance ability though, Ice doing most of the work during much of their vaginal screwing, Marie doing the anal this time. Most of the chemistry I saw was between Marie and Ice though, Tori holding her own but only barely and both gals doing some taste testing before the nut was bust in Tori's mouth to cumswap.
Scene Four: Kristina Rose, a hotty Latina with a great ass, and bikini clad Tori Black, were up next as they teased outside by the pool, the music a bit too heavy but working within the confines of the action. The teased in front of each other, soon joining to do it together before jumping in the pool to give up some lesbian action with tongues and a toy. The sunlight made this portion look really hot but they seemed to adore one another too, the quick paced edit to the ladies on the couch inside with Manuel Ferrara jarring but understandable as the scene went to the next level. The trio worked on each other orally here, the ladies sucking cock and each other while Manuel tried his best to get some licks in on their tight young bodies. Once they started the penetrative sex though, Tori was quite an active babe and Kristina went so far as to do some anal really well. There was taste testing and a little bit of roughness (spanking for the most part) but it was another top notch scene ending with a welcome facial and some ending lesbian play.
Scene Five: Tori Black, up last as she walked along a public street in a trench coat covering her corset and fishnet stockings, soon arrived at the expansive warehouse where she climbed the stairs to meet studly Mick Blue and diminutive James Deen. Mick seemed secure in what he was doing but James felt the need to go abusive on her, some choking and smacking around not working for me all that much. She gave great head to both of them though and Mick tapped that sweet pussy of hers extensively before they swapped out roles. Mick then became abusive to her and while she liked it more than a little bit, her averted gaze seemed to indicate something else going on. The rest of the scene showed Tori doing vaginal and oral sex on the two men, the video bitrate spiking as the scene progressed toward the ending facials, her face glazed like a donut before she walked to the toilet to go crazy on herself.
Summary: Tori Black Is Pretty Filthy Blu-ray by director Mason for Elegant Angel was definitely a walk on the wild side for Tori Black and perhaps her strongest release this side of Interactive Sex with Tori Black, the two amounting to her best companion piece movies fans simply have to have in order to consider themselves fans. Tori showed the expansion of her personal limits in this one better though so while she still has some rough edges to work out, Mason should be praised for eliciting this empowering session of scenes that worked very well for Tori, my personal rating of Recommended admittedly on the low side compared to the opinion of any of Tori's legion of slavering fanboys (whether reviewers or not). In short then, Tori Black Is Pretty Filthy Blu-ray amounted to a healthy visual upgrade and Mason did manage to bring out some of Tori's best work to date, showing the performer is not just another pretty face when she wants to be filthy. This is one of those times when I think the Blu-ray upgrade was definitely worth a few bucks more thanks to the enhancement so give this one some consideration for your collection even if you aren't a huge fan of Tori since you could very well become one afterwards.
