THAT’S SEXPLOITATION REVIEWED
“That’s Sexploitation” is a chronological look at nudity filled entertainment in America. Rising out of stag films, Vaudeville and the Silent Era, it’s amazing to see how much the culture has changed. For over two hours, we get to see how America got kinda weird right after World War II. I knew about “Mother and Father” and the other educational sex films that offered many their first glimpse of nudity. Seriously, people. The first vagina shown onscreen was during an up-close shot of a birth. People used to bust the block lining up outside of theaters to see this.
The big shocker was how Universal and other studios got into the mix. I knew that many indie outlets and huckster producers did it. But, the big studio attempts at these films played so odd for the time. Basically, there were slightly edgy documentaries about abortion and premarital sex. You could neck at Universal, but you could see naked volleyball down on Main Street. Henenlotter is the living master of exploitation cinema and I wish he’d make more documentaries. “That’s Sexploitation” is stunning.
