Video/Audio: The video is presented in 1.33:1 full frame color. The video is good, but is way too heavy on the reds in most of the scenes. After adjusting the tint on my tv it looked much better. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 with crisp and clear sound.

Plot Summary: Adam (St. Croix) and Eve (Julia Ann) are a married couple that are on the verge of losing each other and have serious choices to make. Faust (Mr. Marcus) tries to lead them down the path he wants them to take. Will they work out their issues and make the right choices?

Scene 1: Wendy Devine, Monica Mayhem, Eric Masterson
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, Facial
Wendy is playing the part of a human sushi bar when she decides to suck off Eric. Across the room Monica and Cheyne begin with some head before she rides his dick reverse cowgirl. Wendy performs some head on a banana that Mr. Marcus puts in front of her then goes back to suck eric until he paints her face with cum. Monica gets on her knees and opens her mouth to accept Cheyne's cum on her face and mouth too. Wild scene! The atmosphere was pure debauchery and made the scene very arousing to watch.

Scene 2: Kristal Summers, Alex Sanders
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, Condom Use
Set in a stark white room with a grey pedestal, this couple is completely covered in grey make-up that slowly comes off as the scene progresses. Kristal begins giving Alex head then turns around so he can fuck her doggy style. They switch so she is on top before Alex stands up and fucks her missionary. He pulls out and cums on her stomach for the end. The make-up slowly eroding away as the two have sex was a very nice touch.

Scene 3: Phoenix Rae, Lee Stone
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, Condom Use
Phoenix gives Lee head before bending over to let him fuck her doggy style. They stick with this position for the entire scene until the facial ending. Great scene. Simple and elaborate at the same time.

Scene 4: Sondra Hall, Steven St. Croix
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal
Sondra and Steven kiss a while then she gives him a blow job. The scene shifts back and forth between this fantasy and the reality of what is actually happening between Steven and Julia Ann. Eventually, Sondra and Steven start having sex doggy style, but it is ended by Julia Ann telling Steven "no" in the real world. This is not a hot scene because of the editing, but it does fit and adds to the movie as an illustration of the problems Julia Ann and Steven have.

Scene 5: April, Olivia Del Rio, Mr. Marcus
Acts Included: Oral, Vaginal, Facial, PTM, Condom Use
Both women work on Marcus' cock orally before he fucks April's pussy from behind as she leans on a table. Olivia gets fucked next in doggy and missionary before she and April suck his dick again until he cums on their faces. Sexy scene. Both women were gorgeous and the interaction between the performers added a great deal.

Scene 6: Jana Cova, Tanya Danielle
Acts Included:
Oral, Toys
Jana and Tanya strip on a bed before Jana starts licking Tanya's pussy. Jana bands over to let Tanya lick her pussy and ass before they each use toys on each other. These to really looked to be into one another, so it was definitely a hot scene. The insert shots of Julia Ann erratically putting on lipstick was a little distracting from the action between the other women.

Scene 7: Julia Ann, Steven St. Croix
Acts Included:
Oral, Vaginal, Condom Use
Julia and Steven kiss on their bed and progress further until she is sucking his dick. She lays back and lets him eat her pussy before riding him. They flip over and go at it missionary until he pulls out to cum on her belly. Sexy scene.

Overall Thoughts: Whether it's editing, sets, or wardrobe, Paradise Lost is highly stylized in every aspect. Michael Raven uses terrific art direction, special effects and settings to convey the symbolism in the inner thoughts of the characters during the sex scenes with outstanding results. The main problems I have with this 2 disc set is the authoring itself. When watching the movie itself, you can't change between the audio tracks. This is not a good thing when watching it with the commentary, since Michael Raven gives a little background into the scene at the beginning of each then drops out until the next. The movie itself is split over two title sets, so if you want to go back to a specific scene after the first hour and twelve minutes you have to use the menu. I can only assume they did this for the alternate ending option. The menus are nice, but a little clunky for quick and easy navigating. Overall though, Paradise Lost was a great feature and well put together, so I Highly Recommend this dvd to someone looking for an interesting and visually pleasing movie.
