The movie tells the story of Anna and Jacky, old school friends who have not seen each other in many years. They are reunited on one passionate, emotional, and sexually adventurous night in Los Angeles. Featuring powerful performances by the lead actresses, and breathtaking cinematography. Wasteland is a unique adult movie that blends a deep and heartfelt storyline with intense and unforgettable hardcore sex scenes." DVD Box Quote
Last year I was way late on seeing Graham's last movie, Portrait of a Call Girl, but luckily I came home from Vegas with a Blu-ray copy and I couldn't wait to check it out. And when I heard talks of a new movie, I knew I had to make sure and not be late to this party. My anticipation grew, when I heard that Lily Carter was involved, and with another lovely Lily, Miss Labeau as her co-star. One of my fellow reviewers Don, got his hands on this one first and gave it our highest rating. It's now my turn to share my thoughts on this one.
After watching this, I am sad to hear that Lily doesn't want to do anymore movies like this (from the podcast), she was great in this film and maybe if she comes away with a few awards this year that will change her mind.
Porn has gone way past the normal pizza guy tropes (still enjoy those), giving us some great features with some story and substance, and if this is the direction we are going, I can't wait to see what's next.If you want a little more substance to your porn, this is just what the doctor ordered. This may not appeal to everyone, but with most great movies, there always seems to be a divivde for those for/against a movie, but that's what makes movies so much fun, people can get different things from the same movie. And if you think that the sex scenes are not long enough, well guess what, they added extended scenes in the special features, 133 minutes total. But I will say that there is enough in the movie to keep you excited and waiting to see what is next. Both Lily's are sexy as hell, and show off their sexual sides along with their acting in this movie, some great heartfelt monologues from them throughout the movies, most seem to be given by Miss Carter. Elegant Angel has shown that they are not just a gonzo company, they have expanded into the g/g genre and the features like this. Other studios should take notes and be prepared to raise the bar to meet these releases from Elegant Angel.
We get a nice mix of a haunting score, along with some great lighting, which gives this an amazing look and feel to the movie. And that is why I mentioned the people shooting film at the top of this review, they deserve some attention too. Both hopeful and bright, along with dark and dirty. Fingers crossed we get a Blu-ray transfer of this.
As Graham states in his interview, this movie is all about connections, it's been 5 years for these girls, but a lot has changed in that time, for better or worse. But sometimes being apart is best for both parties, but sometimes it's good to reconnect and remember both the good and bad times.
As I wrap up this love fest for this movie, it should be no surprise that I am going to be give this masterpiece our highest rating, an XCRITIC PICK. Everyone involved in this movie, from both the cast crew deserves some attention for this movie, and I am sure that attention will include a few awards and accolades. We get a great story, great cast, some great sex, and some great camera work, it's nice to see that some people are able to showcase the scene in just the right light, to enhance the mood and feel, and not have the camera stuck on someone's elbow for a few seconds, as they try to catch up. And there is no shortage of special features for you to enjoy, and with the extended sex scenes, I am sure you will get plenty for enjoyment and excitement.
This may not be your thing, when it comes to your porn taste, but this at least deserves a shot to blow your mind, and hopefully you will enjoy the ride. I certainly did.
(extended cut: about 17 minutes)
Going to start off with a hot and raw scene in a bar, starts off with some fingering from Manuel at the bar, before they head off to the bathroom. Carter follows them in and tries to see what is going on, by peeking over the stall. She sees Labeau worshiping his cock, before she ends up pressed up against the side of the stall, as she begs for him to make her cum. She backs her booty on his cock, then ends up on the floor again, jerking him off until he gives her a few shots on the face.
(extended cut: about 6 minutes)
Well if you are familiar with the rules of the road, you know you should repay a person for the lift. Luckily for Karlo, he gets some oral love from Labeau, and Carter comes out and reluctantly joins in and starts to jerk him off. Labeau is behind her, and begins playing with her pussy, which cause Carter to speed up the jerking, and as she shoves it in her mouth, she gets a load in her mouth and lets it drip from her mouth.
(extended cut: about 15 minutes)
Carter seems mad, but when they get back to Labeau's place, it seems that she is also rather horny, and attacks Labeau. They make their way to the couch, as the clothes comes off, and Labeau is deep inside Carter's pussy, driving her crazy, which means some shakes and shivers are coming. She follows up with some finger banging as this little tryst is over, for now.
(extended cut: about 20 minutes)
After a few drinks and a fight, it's time for some playful playing, followed by some makeup sex. This time, Labeau is the center of attention, as Carter explores her body with her hands. She licks and teases her boobs, before the finger play in her pussy begins. Seeing these naked bodies near each other, in this light, is just amazing and breath-taking (the girls are plenty enough to take your breath away on their own). Labeau begs and pleads for Carter to make her cum.
(extended cut: about 16 minutes)
Seems that Labeau really broke her heart back in the day. One night out with some friends at the campfire, Xander tries to put the moves on Carter, but she is not giving into his advances, so he ends up with Labeau, while Lily is once again stuck watching them. She peers through the window and watches as they kiss and start to shed their clothes. She bends over for Xander, he slides her panties to the side, as some doggy action starts. She stands up and gets a nice boob groping from him, while she continues to jerk him off. She falls to her knees and services his cock, followed by some spoon action. She ends up on her back, and takes a nice pounding from his cock, making the furniture bang, and ends up taking a load on her face.
(extended cut: about an hour)
This is the grand finale, as Carter steps into Labeau's world and explores her sexual side. Let's just state the obvious, the girls look amazing in their latex dresses, but let's not forget about Liza, whose curves are just enhanced even more by her tight latex dress. We do get a nice little warm-up before the club between the girls, as Labeau teases and tells Carter about the club and what she does there, getting Carter hot and heavy. Labeau gets Carter to climax once again, by fingering her pussy, just getting her hot and wet before they get to the club. This scene lasts about 30 minutes in the movie, but if you watch the extended sex scenes in the special features, it's about an hour. But I can tell you the condensed version in the movie, is amazing and enough to keep you excited and happy.
They get to the club and Labeau tells Carter to wait 5 minutes and then go find her in the club. Carter watches Sparky and Proxy kiss for a bit and then heads inside in the club, where she locks her eyes on Liza, dancing and showing off her body. Liza comes over and explores Carter's body with her hands, and then leads her farther in the club, as they comes upon Tiffany giving a BJ to one of the club patrons. This makes the girl hot and horny, as Liza plays with Carter's pussy. They move on and come across Sarah giving a BJ, and Liza is back to fingering and playing with Carter's pussy, while throwing in some choking, which we know she loves. The girls move on and share some one on one time, as Liza is able to get Carter to squirt a few times. She leads Carter to her final destination, where she finds Labeau, and she is already servicing two guys, while they fuck her pussy and mouth. Carter is once again watching Labeau, but it's not long before two guys have surrounded Carter, and begin to kiss and fondle her, and soon enough both girls are being fucked and stuffed by the guys. And as Carter is riding one guy, the other comes from behind and shoves his cock in her ass, and with that folks, we have Carter's first DP. As the fun continues, they get Carter to quirt on Labeau, followed by a great standing DP with Carter once again in the middle. This is just some amazing, hot, sweaty, dirty, and raw sex. This is easily the spotlight scene for me and may be one of my favorite scenes of the year. Not sure if I could last through the extended version of this one, but you know I am going to try.The girls end up on their knees and get covered in cum, and share a few kisses and glances, before this magical scene is over.
