Condoms: None

Audio/Video Quality: A Thing of Beauty was presented in anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Dana Vespoli for Evil Angel. The visual elements showed some artistic touches but there was enough lighting and steady camera work to pull it all together nicely. The ladies looked good and the editing was rarely abrupt, Dana showing she has picked up more than a few tips in her quest to be taken seriously as a director. There was a company watermark on the lower right hand corner of the screen but it did not bother me nearly as much as it seems to bug some, just keep that in mind if this is an issue for you, some of the special effects looking quite interesting. The aural components of the show were solid and if not overly distinctive but I could hear the cast going at it, whispering sexual comments toward one another and otherwise providing some ear candy worth listening to in the stereo aural environment.


Body of Review: Dana Vespoli has become a major creative force in porn, her movies for companies such as Evil Angel often serving a vastly different audience than the hordes of raincoaters that appreciate the works of the other directors there. Her latest flick as director for the company is called A Thing of Beauty, the feature morality tale coming out next week. This time, cutie Bree Daniels finds she needs to be “careful what you wish for” as she encounters a variety of corrupting demons and fallen angels in the sexually and mentally stimulating outing that updates the legend of Faust; a guy who thought he could outwit the devil to get everything he ever dreamed of. With babes like Karlie Montana, Skin Diamond, and Aiden Starr in key roles, Dana joins them for some sexually varied enjoyment, the results just the kind of thing one might expect from creative Dana.

The company website described the movie like this: “The real Dana Vespoli is an impressive mix of inventive filmmaker and lusty sex star. Portraying a carnal she-devil in her Faustian feature “A Thing Of Beauty,” she’s equal parts beguiling and intimidating. The ambitious movie’s story surprises, convincing acting, hellish imagery and clever special effects ignite a potent variety of sex scenarios in a depraved re-imagination of the classic devil’s bargain. Natural-bodied redhead Bree Daniels’ transformation from mousy mess to confident cutie enhances her professional and sexual satisfaction. Her lovemaking with new boyfriend Logan Pierce is no automated porn sex; they look like a real couple excitedly experiencing each other for the first time. Bree’s deep-throat talent seems heavenly, but she’s dragged to a darker place by black-clad hellions Sinn Sage and Karlie Montana; they dominate Bree in a brutal, blasphemous all-girl three-way. Stylish black beauty Skin Diamond bears bloody scars where her wings were ripped off. Buxom fuck demon Aiden Starr makes the fallen angel confess her sinful pleasures in a rough lesbian session. Claiming another fallen angel (Mick Blue), heartless Dana reveals her morality: “I can feel the grace of God going up my asshole, where it belongs.”” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:



Scene One: Bree Daniels, the sexy redhead seen on the lower half of the front cover (in glasses on the left side and more in tune with her sexuality on the right side), was up first with Logan Pierce, the man in the plaid shirt next to her on the cover. The hookup was brief as she walked around in more revealing clothing, the two going back to the house with him in his cover attire and her in a tight white crop top and blue jeans. The couple kissed and he pulled her top off to appreciate her fine boobs more, sucking her nipples and nuzzling her neck as his hands roamed her body. Logan took his time warming her up, peeling off her skin tight pants to more fully enjoy her perky little ass. He rimmed her and gobbled her gash, using his fingers to get her neatly trimmed cookie all wet and ready to rumble. Bree then slobbed his knob with a lot of sexual confidence, applying some hand to gland friction and ball licking to get his member rock hard for some vaginal screwing, the turgid pecker tearing into her all too willing pussy, though she remained largely passive at riding until the very end of the scene in reverse cowgirl. I loved watching her ass shake as he boned her, her tits doing likewise, her tight pussy clenching to drain his dragon of sperm in the ending doggy modified position which led to her facial. The company website described the scene like this: “Pretty redhead Bree Daniels and handsome Logan Pierce hook up on a first date. Their kissing and passionate making out is nothing like automated porn sex; they look like a real young couple excitedly experiencing each other's body for the first time. Logan sucks the naked, fair-skinned cutie's tasty, natural boobs, eats her shaved snatch and rims her shapely butt. He fingers her to a soaking orgasm! Bree is a natural deep-throater, her lips and mouth lovingly engulfing Logan's long, thick erection. As they fuck (on her back; Bree riding cock; skin-slammin' doggie-style), their fingers diddle her clit to choking orgasms. Bree tastes her juice on his meat. Logan squirts ribbons of spunk onto Bree's tongue; she cleans him orally and they share a sweaty, satisfied kiss.”



Scene Two: Bree Daniels, walking along a dirt path in a wooded area, was then surrounded by Karlie Montana and thicker Sinn Sage, the two ladies dressed in tight black clothing with top hats (much like the droogs from “A Clockwork Orange” except in black). The ladies forced Bree into a graffiti laden underpass and forced her to pleasure them orally, the ladies shoving her panties in her mouth and tweaking her nipples when not diddling her or sucking on her tits. The gals gave her a lot of oral before demanding it of her though, spitting on her and slapping her, even choking her in a display of rough sex that opened her up to new horizons. Bree ate ass at length and pussy as well, the assaulting duo removing enough of their outfits before pulling out a dildo to drill her with. By the end of the scene, Bree was shown to greatly enjoy lesbian sex on either side of giving or receiving, some plotted points brought forth including Lea shown in her own transformation in a dance number of eerie macabre before spying on the third scene as described below. The company website described the scene like this: “Intimidating, black-clad hellions Sinn Sage and Karlie Montana shove innocent redhead Bree Daniels into a dark tunnel for a terrifying sexual domination. Dark-haired, pierced Sinn and hot-assed redhead Karlie roughly corrupt Bree's body -- spanking her white ass; tweaking her nipples; slapping and sucking her natural boobs; fingering her pussy and feeding her the juice. The nasty hellions (stylish in top-hats!) drop Bree to her knees and yank her head up their asses by the hair: 'No more pretty little princess, not when you're eating lesbian demon asshole!' They tongue Bree's holes -- 'I love the taste of my asshole on your mouth,' says Sinn. A crucifix dildo blasphemously fucks Bree's cunt and mouth. 'Practice,' she's warned. 'You'll be sucking demon cocks in hell.'”



Scene Three: Aiden Starr, a busty bombshell with enormous amounts of eye shadow in her slutty attire, was up next in a lesbian scene with leaner sex babe Skin Diamond, the light skinned black gal shown as a fallen angel with wings ripped asunder to leave bloody, feathery stumps. Aiden bent her over and used multiple fingers inside Skin’s pussy before flogging her as she spread her ass cheeks wide, both ladies enjoying their respective roles as D/s/. Skin then ate Aiden’s pussy and ass like she was starving, Aiden pulling Skin’s head into her ass to go ever deeper in the oral pleasuring. This led to the ladies mounting a wand vibrator and rubbing against it, Aiden donning a strap on dildo to pork Skin hard, tearing up the pussy before making Skin blow her and then sitting on Skin’s face before getting her off loudly with the wand. The company website described the scene like this: “Fallen angel Skin Diamond (the shapely, stylish black beauty) has bloody scars where her wings were ripped off. Pale, naturally buxom fuck demon Aiden Starr (menacing in corset and heeled boots plus fiendish black eye make-up and lipstick) makes Skin admit her sinful pleasures with rough lesbian domination. Aiden spanks Skin's gorgeous, mocha butt pink and flogs her bald pussy. There's wet G-spot fingering, face sitting, kneeling cunt service and rimming. Skin wants to suffocate in Aiden's deep cleavage. An electric vibe buzzes twats amid scissoring legs. Riding Aiden's strap-on dildo, Skin's pink ass pumps and rolls. Gag spit flows in a pussy-to-mouth face fuck. Skin proves she doesn't deserve to be back in heaven, 'because I'm a whore.'”



Scene Four: Dana Vespoli, up last in a black corset and red and black stripped stretch pants, then worked on corrupting her own fallen angel in the form of Mick Blue, his wings also torn off to leave the bloodied, feathery remains on his back. Dana enticed him with dirty talk and seductive mannerisms, kneeling over his lap so he could spank her and savor her juicy ass at length as his raging boner stood ready to dive deep wherever needed. She beat his meat as he continued pleasuring her orally, Dana then reciprocating by throating his turgid rod before he sucked her tits and she mounted him. Mick stretched her ass as he tore into it, Dana letting him do the work at first before they alternated giving more head, her ass and pussy just as freely offered to him for his use as could be though he heavily favored her ass as she rubbed one out. The anal soon milked his balls dry of semen for the ending facial that led to more feature elements that reminded the view to read the fine print of any contract you sign. The company website described the scene like this: “In black make-up, vicious boots and ripped leggings that expose her holes, Dana Vespoli is a bewitching mix of attraction and intimidation. Finding stud Mick Blue scarred bloody with his wings torn off, she says, 'It's so nice when they cast you guys out and bring you here.' She-devil Dana loves turning good boys out. She finds his armpit aroma angelic. He tongues and fingers her accessible orifices to orgasm; gag spit flows as she sucks his huge erection. That boner goes straight up demonic Dana's back door: 'I can feel the grace of God going up my asshole, where it belongs.' As she's sodomized, she masturbates to a howling orgasm. Mick pounds her rectum in multiple positions and she sucks dick ass-to-mouth before kneeling to catch his jism on her tongue.”


Summary: A Thing of Beauty by director Dana Vespoli for Evil Angel was a feature based on the common understanding of Faust, the idea that people will take extreme measures to get more out of life a plot device used all the time in entertainment. Sexually and thematically I think the movie earned a rating of Recommended, Bree Daniels doing a great job in her transformation from a meek office worker to a hotty on the prowl. In short, A Thing of Beauty was not made to please everyone, the allegories and metaphors in play familiar enough these days during the feature elements while the sex was not mindless gonzo trysts either, your level of appreciation likely tied to how you like your porn so check it out when this is released.
