Extras: The extras included trailers, a helpful cast list, individual photogalleries, some filmographies, and a pop shot recap.
Audio/Video Quality: Raw 11 was presented in a nice 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen color as shot by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel using the normal standard definition format to showcase the ladies. The colors were accurate in most cases but the footage was shot by Manuel himself (sometimes in POV while other times by setting the camera on a table), giving it a home movie look at times but serving to elevate the chemistry between the couples on display, no one else getting in the way to weaken the bonds. So while there was grain, weird camera work and angles at times, and perhaps lots of opportunities to polish up the raw footage, the title speaks volumes as to what was supposed to happen here and I have to respect the dynamic as advertised. It should be noted that much of the footage here was a major upgrade to earlier volumes in the series, the night vision portion not so much but the rest of the show was often very crisp. The video bitrate was higher than usual, often in the 4.0 Mbps area or so, helping the show look okay. The audio was presented in the usual 2.0 Dolby Digital English using the 192 Kbps and 48 kHz sampling rate; sounding average at best compared to the video as all the gals could be heard (though the lack of separation and limited dynamic range could also be worked on) but it certainly could have been louder.
Body of Review: Manuel Ferrara is one of the few male performers able to truly enhance a scene, his work at Evil Angel showcasing how he adores ladies of all types. Say what you will about lack of quality extras or modest technical values, the man delivers in spades the kind of heated fuck flick most of his peers can only dream about offering, the sheer quantity of his works also helping to push them over the proverbial edge. With that, I approached reviewing the double disc Raw 11with the concern that it couldn’t possibly be as good as some of his previous titles, Manuel opening up his private vaults to showcase some of his most precious memories with attractive ladies of all sorts, ladies that were dripping wet to hook up with the guy. With attractive ladies such as Anikka Albrite, Liza Del Sierra, Alison Tyler, and Marica Hase, I figured this was going to be a highly strokable double disc offering with all the replay value such chemistry filled couplings could muster.

The company website described the flick like this: “Director/performer Manuel Ferrara exposes the unvarnished truth of his porn stud lifestyle with his "Raw" series - the French ladies' man's private footage documents intimate encounters with gorgeous, sexually open women, giving smut fans a voyeur's eye view of the reality behind the glamour and artifice of mainstream porn. "Raw 11" is a two-disc, first person adventure of intense one-on-one fuck marathons with four amazingly hot ladies. Japanese cutie Marica meets Manuel for the first time, and the two tour Hollywood. In a hotel, the petite, lovely girl bridges their cultural and language gap with a sizzling session of cocksucking and submissive sex that climaxes in a cum facial. No translation necessary! His next date is with super tall, naturally busty brunette Alison Tyler. She rides Manuel's enormous cock, her big ass bouncing, and jacks his shaft until he covers her face with cream. His next stop is the apartment of pretty blonde Anikka Albrite. Manuel gets orally serviced by the sultry slut and stuffs her shaved pussy full of hard dick. Lastly, short and sassy Liza del Sierra is an insatiable French Latina with huge jugs and a phat booty. She invites our man over for a sexy reunion. They converse in their native tongue before getting their tongues otherwise busy and share an intense fuck in all positions. Manuel is the master of POV reality porn, and his rough footage is unfiltered, scarcely edited and highly personal - no script, no scenery, no fakery. "Raw 11" plays it as it lays!” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Liza Del Sierra
Scene One: Marica Hase, the attractive young Asian woman featured on the front cover, was up first with Manuel Ferrara. A friend of his was in town from Japan, Marica the first true Japanese woman he had ever worked with (she is a bigger “name” in Japan than here, this being the second title of her credited 3 domestic productions). He showed her the sights and they went shopping, eventually ending up on the hotel room bed where they kissed. She seemed kind of cold and distant at first, the blinds pulled back to let much more light than usual into the room so the resolution was improved. Manuel set the camera down and started warming her up orally, settling in on gobbling her gash as she made a series of noises. She jerked him off and focused her oral on his head (and top few inches of his shaft), the size of his pecker compared to her head telling me her throating technique was never going to get much more. She sucked his balls and rimmed him briefly, a few more kisses leading to some very slow vaginal penetration positions shot at a distance. Marica was no size queen and it took a lot for her to appreciate his girth and length, the gal finally kicking it in after the hour mark to start being more active, her all natural body delight to watch as she continued riding and alternating with some taste testing by slobbing his knob. There was some foot sucking by the gal as well, her hand to gland action complimenting her blowjob as she beat his meat to completion, his genetic juice glazing her face thoroughly. Marica had a nervous laugh after that, Manuel sure to remain on her mind for some time to come.
Scene Two: Alison Tyler, a tall brunette with big boobs, was up next as she visited Manuel Ferraraat his new place. The place was nice and he had an uncharacteristically short haircut, his camera shooting up her skirt as she climbed to the second floor. They settled into the bedroom for her to blow and kiss him, a lot of intermittent oral by both of them between vaginal penetration positions. The camera was set down for some of the best blowjobs and salad tossing but he retrieved it for a do over, some choking and active riding enhanced by her great eye contact with him. The picture was somewhat grainier than usual at times but it was still pretty good, the two verbally communicating to show some personal chemistry but the action ended when she tossed out a ball draining wad of population pudding, the ball batter eliciting laughter from the two of them. Manuel then shot some additional footage of her showering, the bathroom looking really nice.
Scene Three: Annika Albright, a fetching blond with a few dozen credits to her name, was up next as the first scene on the second disc. Manuel Ferrarawas originally shown driving along as he described his pending tryst, walking to her apartment on the Sunday afternoon (while the resolution was a bit unclear in the common area, it appeared to be 2:30 PM on April 29-how’s that for detail). She did not have a bunch of makeup on and she was also in the process of moving, her kitty befriending him (her cat, not her snatch just yet) as she walked around in a blue dress. She liked baking and he liked cookies, the two flirting it up big time as she proved to be a good hostess. She touched up her looks with some makeup from there, Manuel suggesting she needn’t bother though the couple ended up on the bed as anticipated. He gave a great close up of her crotch before going down on her, his hands roaming freely before they moved into a 69 so she could reciprocate. She really wanted him inside her, the active vaginal sex and eye contact making this another winner. Their voices could not always be heard as distinctly in one of the positions where the camera was set down on the dresser but they kept escalating the performance from there, her ass looking awesome as it rippled during their tryst. Anikka then blew him to a clean finish, swallowing his splooge before cleaning every inch of his rod off and some showering footage adding a masturbation clip with the showerhead.
Scene Four: Liza Del Sierra, a wonderful French lady with more credits to her name than all the others combined, was up last with countryman Manuel Ferrara. He met her at some apartments but she came out to his car, some difficulties with the entry gate card discussed in their native tongue. She had a smaller apartment too, the walk to it from the parking lot allowing him to get some footage of her lean body as well as some tease. She finally flashed him laughingly in the kitchen, her firm ass covered in skin tight shorts as the mood started changing to a more frisky one. They hit the bed and slowly progressed into the right frame of mind, some joking in French leading to her aggressively slobbing his knob with a great deal of hand action. Liza provided some wonderful eye contact and their affection for each other showed in many little ways, the two pausing to kiss at length before a huge quantity of vaginal fucking and oral by both of them ensued. They took a few breathers too, Liza always picking back up in a more seductive manner (the two handed meat beater with blowjob chaser was amazing!), the lady getting off a few times (or at least giving a far superior appearance of such). She smoked a cigarette and masturbated at one point after that, picking back to blow and fuck, toss salad and lick him, until draining him dry of spunk to swallow before she lightly caressed him in a playful manner. Rather than show showering, he gave some additional footage of her body and had her sit on his face, the credits quickly rolling to end this very fine set of scenes.

Summary: Raw 11 by director Manuel Ferrara for Evil Angel had great amounts of fuck for the buck thanks in large part to the chemistry between the performers, all of the four sexual trysts of the sort people seeing it will remember for a long, hard time. The raw energy and passion exhibited by all the players here gave it great replay value and strokability, the fun factor high enough to earn a rating of Highly Recommended, newcomer Marica Hase earning a nod for her enthusiasm, Liza Del Sierra meriting extra credit for her slutty drive (and pure chemistry with him), Anikka Albrite for combining looks and passion, and Alison Tyler for her overall appeal and need for seed. In short then, Raw11, like all the volumes in the series before it, was a tribute to just how well some ladies respond to the strongest male performer in the porn industry, the ladies singing his praises as they earned accolades themselves.
