(ag) wrote: Deborah Anderson's pathetic attempt to humanize pornstars is unfathomably vapid and pretentious. Forced-artsy shots are apparently Anderson's speciality - if I ever saw more than one-fourth of the speaker's face I certainly can't recall. This brings to mind a significant problem: forgetability. Aroused is horrifically self-indulgent, desperately feminist, practically amnesia-inducing tripe. As sixteen pornstars undress and roll around naked on a king-size bed whilst giving "candid" interviews addressing how they are far more than pornstars who roll around naked on a king-size bed, the real agitation begins. Rather than being a compelling and clear-eyed look at feminine independence or worth - the documentary I hoped for - Aroused succeeds only at visibly discomforting the models as they, one by one, seem to come to the realization that being pornstars don't make them divine beings. There's a football field of difference between women revealing different sides of themselves and tackling intimacy in a different way for the camera; and women desperately claiming they're interesting and intelligent and not just a naked body, literally while being photographed as a naked body. If there was supposed to be some sort of post-modern irony associated with this paradoxical setting, I failed to appreciate it. Perhaps the worst drivel perpetuating this documentary is the bold proclamations defying the objectification of women. As if claims of literature and finances weren't enough, now women chastise the viewer and complain about how they are objectified. Too many drugs, not enough schooling, or a devilish hybrid of the two must be the culprit here, as none of the 16 women seem to realize that the definition of being a pornstar - whatever faux-cultured cases they make for themselves - is becoming an object of sexual gratification for the camera. Women - AND men - are on the set not to revolutionize art, not to lead an enlightening movement, but to have sex entirely based on what the yahoo users are watching that week. Porn is a cold business, and once someone surrenders themselves to prostitution (oh, but with a camera) I utterly fail to recognize how a woman can have the audacity to demand respect from the same people who pleasure themselves to a two-minute gonzo hammering of her body parts, close the laptop and flip on the light. Anderson's overly sympathetic treatment of the girls is aggravating as well. The ending features herself "bravely" posing naked in front of the camera. Being proud of one's body is excellent, but the disconnect between what these confused girls claim and what Deborah Anderson was apparently trying to reveal is as evident as a bullet to the head.

That Barbara Hershey, who during the early 70s changed her last name to Seagull after a bird that died while she was filming and who named her son with Caradine "Free"--she changed her name back later and her son changed his to Tom when he was 9--played the hippie mom who named her son Henry Thomas Butterfly Rainbow Peace was a hoot.

(mx) wrote: Young at Heart is a decent film. It is about the lives and romances of three sisters in a musical family. Doris Day and Frank Sinatra give good performances. The screenplay is a little slow in places. Gordon Douglas did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the drama and romance.
(ca) wrote: Humble but inspiring, this little western offers a heartwarming story that benefits, mostly, from its cast, specially by the charisma of Alan Ladd in the lead role, even if the film lacks the usual amount of action of a typical genre flick.
