If you have yet to experience an early Lloyd Kaufman picture I strongly recommend Sugar Cookies if you're looking for a more serious movie. Sure it's basically a skin flick, but there truly is an interesting tale once you get around some of the more intimate moments. Do not expect a full blown porn. It nearly has the feeling of a giallo as it's highly stylized with plenty of gratuitous moments of nudity. More blood and black gloves and the you might as well have filmed the damn thing in Italy.
Man I loved that opening. There's actually a great amount of tension, built and sustained impeccably.
You can order Sugar Cookies now.
