Guys, in general, I don't review porn for this site. It's a horror site, but every once in awhile I like to spread my legs. Live a little. Try to culture ya'll. The Telephone Book is not a porn movie. It's an art picture with an intriguing story, comic notes that most modern film could take note from, some amazing performances, a stunning, Black and White contrast fest and a movie that pretty much runs the gamut from perve to perfection. It's clearly an adult feature, but when's the last time you saw a movie about cranking calling that didn't involve Margot Kidder's gorgeous breasts being strewn about a sorority house?
Synopsis (from VS):
The Telephone Book tells the story of Alice, a sex obsessed hippie who falls in love with the world's greatest obscene phone caller and embarks on a quest to find him.
That's where I'll leave it. Alice goes on all sorts of kinky adventures but still presenting a sense of naivete and wisdom that seems jarring. How can someone so young be so oblivious but still have her wits about her and street out-smart the entire city? She's a fascinating character; one who demands a study by someone who write scholarly things (you pick). By the end of the film you'll either be in love, disgusted or simply turned on. I was turned on. That's all I'm giving away... save the dirty bits for your own mind's eye. It's not even a smut picture. It's intellectual. It's like reading Playboy, reading the articles and then actually being able to discuss them intelligently, but doing so with a bottle of vaseline in one hand and a sock in another. Filthy. Smart. Dirty. Beautiful (note that I didn't say gorgeous for obvious or not so obvious reasons).
