menu screen Synopsis:
The film features five unrelated vignettes all starring Christi Lake.

Audio/Video:
Directors' Wet Dreams is presented with a English 2.0 Stereo track that, like many adult films from the late 80s and early 90s, sounds more monophonic in nature than stereophonic.  The range for the music used in the film is limited and sounds very flat.  The rest of the audio has more of a range to the sound but it really isn't up to many of the other films that came out during this period.  The dialog is clear and easy to hear at all times.  VCA hasn't included any foreign language tracks or any subtitle options for the film.

Directors' Wet Dreams is presented in a combination of the full screen ratio of 1.33:1 and a non-anamorphic widescreen ratio of approximately 1.45:1.  The first four of the five vignettes is presented in the full screen ratio with the fifth vignette in widescreen.  There are occasional glitches present throughout the film, but not many, making the film look like it came from a VHS master.  The colors look slightly muted and the picture doesn't look as crisp as it could.  The last scene, the one in widescreen has additional problems.  There are a couple points during the scene where the widescreen matting changes to approximately 1.85:1 for a few seconds, which gives the scene an odd look.  There are also points during the scene where it looks like the picture was compressed so the images don't look natural.

screen shot Special Features:
This is a bare bones edition from VCA which just sports the film itself and no supplementary material at all, not even previews of other titles.

Disc Design/Navigation:
The disc is designed with plain, non-animated menus, which are not very aesthetically appealing.  I have no problem with the fact that the menus aren't animated, but it looks like very little work went into them and the end result is they just look cheap and didn't interest me much going into the film.  There are five chapters available from the chapter menu for the film.  Each one is identified by a video clip from the scene that the chapter goes to.  Unfortunately, the chapters don't always go right to the beginning of each vignette which can be frustrating if you want to watch one of them from the beginning.  There are 19 chapter stops available within the film itself.  There is a time code for the feature film encoded on the disc.

General Review:
In the mainstream film Aria, ten directors were asked to do their visions of classical arias.  In an adult take-off of this, five award winning directors have each created their vision of a sex scene involving star Christi Lake.  Viewers that like a more artier aspect to their adult films will like this film.  It's great to see the different styling of big name directors put up against each other.  Each of the scenes presented here is uniquely different and it makes for a good viewing experience.  No, not every viewer will like every scene, but chances are if you have a wide range of likes, you'll like the majority of them. 

screen shot Although the film would appear from the material on the box to be designed for the fans of balls to the wall nasty sex, this really isn't the case with the film.  Viewers that like tame scenes will probably find the sex harder than they are interested in though.  This film was really made for viewers that fall into the middle ground for their sex as there is tame and nastier aspects to the scenes.  The sexual themes in the film are vaginal and anal sex with blow jobs, pussy eating (female to female, male to female), anilingus (female to female), female masturbation, pussy fingering (male to female), anal masturbation, shaving, hand job, DP and coercion.  For viewers that care about condom use, there are no condoms used in the film at any point.

The technical levels and design of each of the scenes is different and they all have their own strengths and weaknesses.  Instead of treating the film as a whole on these angles, I'm going to go into each scene individually and go over what I liked and didn't like about each scene.  Hopefully this will allow readers to figure out, as a whole, whether this film is something that they will like or not.

The first vignette is Back Alley Prom Queen directed by Nic Cramer.  In this set-up, Christi's car breaks down in a deserted urban area where two bikers end up being pleasured by her.  In this scene there really isn't much of a plot to it, it is more of just a set-up and the scene quickly heads into the sex.  The location used in this scene is excellent and I also really liked the way the scene was shot.

screen shot The second vignette is Fucking Mr. Good Mr. Bad, which is directed by Jim Holliday.  This scene is a straight out all sex vignette and was probably my least favorite of the scenes.  It is a group scene that starts out small, with three participants at the beginning, and the numbers grow as the scene progresses until there are double the original number of participants come the end of the scene.  The reason that this scene didn't quite work for me was with all the participants involved at some point the heat in the scene started to dissipate and ended up being lost in the course of the scene.  The scene would have probably played out better with only four participants.

The third vignette is Caught in the Woods directed by Bud Lee.  In this scene, Christi is camping in the woods when she gets found by three men who end up having their way with her.  I was torn between liking and not liking this scene.  On the positive side, the scene featured some great locations and benefitted from a non-standard structure.  Christi has some great attire on at the beginning of the scene and there is a nice opening strip tease with her at the beginning as well.  On the negative side, the scene is a semi-coercion scene, which I am not big on.  The rape aspects are slim in the scene but they do exist, which turned me off a little to the scene.

The fourth vignette, Bloody Good Fucking, is directed by Henri Pachard and is another scene where the plot is basically just a setting.  Christi is doing her laundry when the blood stained Sean Michaels and Julian St. Jox enter.  They strip down to clean their cloths and since this is a porn film you can figure out what happens next.  The set for the scene is lacking and could have used some more work, but the sex is hot and the scene is enjoyable.  Henri Pachard has also thrown in a cool little twist to the scene which plays out well.

screen shot The fifth and final vignette is The Queen Bee Sting directed by Michael Zen.  This is my favorite vignette from the film and also the one I am the most disappointed in.  The reason why I am so disappointed with this scene, is it is the one plagued with video problems.  The scene is presented in the widescreen aspect ratio of approximately 1.45:1, but there are a couple points where the aspect ratio changes to approximately 1.85:1 for a few seconds, which is very distracting.  There are also places where the image appears to be compressed to fit in the frame causing the image not to look natural, which is even more distracting.  In this scene Vouyer steals a plie of money and is taking off through the middle of nowhere when he finds Christi masturbating.  She brings him back to her place for some honey and he ends up getting more than he expected.  This scene features excellent locations and some great music.  This vignette, unlike the others, offers a full short story in the scene and ends up being a very fun scene.

Scene Synopsis:
The first scene brings us Christi Lake, Jay Ashley and Brian Surewood and starts out with a blow job before going into a blow job and vaginal sex combination.  Then the scene goes into some vaginal sex, with a break for some anal sex and concluding with some more vaginal sex.  The second scene features Christi Lake, Misty Rain, Stacy Valentine, Krista Maze, Peter North and Chad Thomas.  The scene starts with three of the femme fatales then the fourth enters into the scene followed by the males.  The scene starts out with a pussy eating (female to female) and anilingus (female to female) combination before the entrance of the fourth female.  Then the scene goes into a pussy eating (female to female), anilingus (female to female) and female masturbation combination.  The two males now enter the scene and it goes into a blow job and pussy fingering (male to female) combo before going into some vaginal sex.  Then the scene goes into a vaginal sex and blow job combination before going into some pussy eating (female to female).  The scene then heads into a vaginal sex and blow job combination before going into an anal sex and blow job combination to end the scene.

screen shot The third scene gives us Christi Lake, Mitch Gant, Kyle Stone and Jonathan Morgan and starts out with Christi showering during which she masturbates and anally masturbates and shaves her already bald pussy.  Then the scene goes into a blow job and pussy eating combination before going into some vaginal sex.  Then the scene heads into a blow job, vaginal sex and hand job combination before going into some anal sex.  The scene ends with a DP.  The fourth scene in the film features Christi Lake, Sean Michaels and Julian St. Jox and starts out with a blow job and vaginal sex combination.  The scene then heads into some anal sex before concluding with an anal sex and blow job combination.

The fifth and final scene brings us Christi Lake and Vince Vouyer and starts out with some female masturbation before going into some pussy eating.  There is a blow job before the scene goes into some vaginal sex.  The scene concludes with some anal sex.

Parting Thoughts:
Directors' Wet Dreams is a fun film to watch especially due to all of the scenes being done in different styles.  There is something here to satisfy a wide range of porn viewers, although the extreme tame fans and the extreme nasty fans may not find enough to satiate them.  Viewers who are into the artistic aspect of an adult film as much as the sex will get the most enjoyment out of this film.  If the film sounds interesting or if you are a fan of one or more of the directors present in this volume, you'll probably at least want to rent the film if not buy it.
