The Little Details
Running Time: 101 min. (I'm deducting a half point as the cover states 141 minutes. This looks to be a simple error as it is one hour and forty one minutes, but it still makes the movie appear like it's going to be much longer than it actually is.)
Production Date: 9 / 24 / 2005
Cast: Anita Queen, Daria Glower, Evelyn Lory, Julie Silver, Katy Anderson, Morgana, Nikki Sun, Vanesa, Dirty Dog (aka Ian Tate), and George Uhl
The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Pulse has had a nice eye for talent and I really like the look of the style for this one. I'm going into this one with high expectations.
Initial Reaction: It's a bit hit or miss, but there's some very likable aspects to it.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody wanting porn with style and a very artistic feeling
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody who hates shadows
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are a touch on the artistic side. The audio is clear and well balanced, and I don't think I heard a single background noise. The video is a bit more problematic, and not just because it's only given a non-anamorphic transfer rather than the anamorphic transfer the widescreen format deserves. Some of it is nicely treated with filters to give it a film-like feel that's reminds the viewer of the days of yesteryear when it was common for cars to have suicide doors. Sadly, there's also a ton of shadows which more often than not interfere with the action.
Music: The music is extremely likable. It has a kind of classic jazz feel, but that doesn't quite describe it right each as it's a little more laid back. It varies in balance with the rest of the audio throughout the movie, and really helps out the scenes and the overall movie.
Menus: The main menu is simple but classy, with just a touch of animation. The chapter menu is nicely done, and lets you choose a scene based on a small clip of each scene and the names of the girls in them. There's also a Select a Dollface menu which lets you choose a scene based on a still of the girls from the scenes along with their names.
The FeatureThere's a romantic kind of simplicity to the thirties and forties. Three piece suits for the guys and fur coats or dresses that are frequently wore with hats for the ladies. It's a nostalgic time, and to Kendo, a darn sexy time as well.
|Scene 1 – Evelyn Lory and Vanesa|
Vanesa, a cute dirty blonde from the Czech Republic, starts things out in a classic white bra, panties and garter belt with nude stockings and plain black heels sitting back in a chair barely wearing a fur coat. She picks up the phone and makes a quick call before sitting back in her chair. Moments later she's joined by Evelyn, who's hair is in curlers and who's wearing a gray fur coat with black collars that she slides off so show some black lingerie. She kisses Vanesa softly before helping her out of her bra, and lets Vanesa kiss her nipples before she drops down to lick her pussy. Evelyn comes back up and sits back for Vanesa to tongue and finger her before they softly sixty-nine each other. They move apart to play with themselves and watch each other before coming back together for a soft kiss and to hold each other as the scene fades out.
This scene really started the movie off on the right foot for me. It makes it clear right from the start that this is going to be an artistic and stylish movie, but at the same time it never loses the sexuality of the scene. The camera moves around very well to capture the action from many different angles and distances, and there's some great use of lighting. It's even helped out by the music, which has an old style feel without committing to any style to the degree that you can pinpoint right where it's supposed to be from. Of course, there's also the girls, who seem to be into each other quite nicely. There's always a touch of restraint, but at the same time it feels natural for the girls. I really got into this scene.
|Scene 2 – Nikki Sun and Dirty Dog|
Dirty Dog starts out the second scene sitting down on a chair in a dark grey three piece pinstripe suit with a black fedora and a white band. He's joined by blonde Nikki in a white fur coat, white bodysuit, and nude stockings. She bends over to free his cock and start sucking it slowly at first and then nice and fast with a few licks and plenty of eyes mixed in. Dirty Dog lets her sit back in his chair so he can eat her before fucking her, and lets her suck him a bit more before Nikki rides him reverse cowgirl style with each of her holes. She sucks Dirty Dog clean before riding him cowgirl style, and they make sure to show off some nice gapes as he reams her. Finally, Nikki gets down to work Dirty Dog to a very nice facial before leaving him to sit back in his chair.
This scene did very little for me. It still has a nice idea of style, but it's hurt by a lot of shadows that cover most of the action. The camera work also hurts it, as there are a lot of times when it chops off the heads of both participants and then cuts it with dark gyno-cam shots. This scene had a lot of potential at first, but the camera work almost completely killed it for me and had me fast forwarding through most of the scene.
|Scene 3 – Daria Glower and Dirty Dog|
After they each take a few drags off their fags, Daria, a hot brunette who looks even hotter in her tight white classic style dress with a matching hat, makes her way closer to Dirty Dog and sits on the bed. She breaks out a sliver vibe which she runs around her body, and as she lifts her dress up and works the top down she continues to run her hands around herself. Daria barely rubs her pussy before sliding the toy in, leaving Dirty Dog to stroke himself as he watches her. She slides closer to Dirty Dog as she rubs herself, and he quickly gets the hint and meets her at the edge of the bed with a hard cock for her to suck. He reciprocates with a pair of fingers and a tongue for her lips before fucking her missionary style. They keep it going with a bit of spooning and a reverse cowgirl ride before Daria sucks Dirty Dog to a very nice pop in the air and on her face.
This was an okay scene. I really like the start with Daria putting on the show for Dirty Dog on the bed, and they seemed to have pretty good chemistry when they came together on the bed. Once again, unfortunately, the camera work and shadows held the scene back quite a bit. There were also plenty of odd camera angles that just seemed to be a little off. There's a nice idea behind this one, but the artistic angles just got in the way a bit much.
|Scene 4 – Julie Silver, Katy Anderson, Dirty Dog, and George Uhl|
While George and Dirty Dog play some poker, blonde nurses Julie and Katy get it on to relieve their boredom on the bed. Katy starts things out as Julie lies back, and then backs off so they can both strip down a bit and suck each other's tits. The guys decide the cards can wait, with George taking on Julie while Dirty Dog has his way with Katy. The girls warm up their respective partners orally, and it doesn't take Julie long to get George ready to fuck her missionary style. He backs off to tongue her after fucking her a little, and moves on to fuck her from behind as Julie makes her way over to help Katy suck Dirty Dog's cock. They leave Katy to work on Dirty orally and to have a reverse cowgirl ride while they head back to the bed for a little reverse cowgirl anal. The girls each go for cowgirl rides next, with Julie kicking it up a bit taking it in each of her holes while Dirty Dog mixes in a little oral action for Katy. They trade partners, and soon after George unleashes a pair of pops on Katy's leg and keeps right on fucking her missionary style as Julie rides Dirty Dog cowgirl style. They keep working the girls through the standard positions, with Julie repeatedly taking it in her shitpussy before leaning over to take a facial from the guy the other girl was fucking.
This is a pretty hot scene. I really like the twist on the nurse scene by having the girls in the old style nurse outfits, and there's also a little extra kink in there with how similar the girls look. There's nice chemistry all around, and I really like how the girls seemed like they wanted to help each other at times. It's the little things like that which really make a group scene work for me. The camera work is much better here once again, although there are a few minor shadows and a few funky angles that interfered with the scene for me. This is a nicely done group scene.
|Scene 5 – Anita Queen and Morgana|
Busty brunette Anita gets it on with brunette at the bar. They let their hands wander over to each other's leg before their dresses magically disappear so they can work on each other's pussy with Anita sitting back first to enjoy Morgana's muff munching. She has Morgana lie back on the floor so she can lick and rub her pussy before they sixty-nine. Anita has Morgana sit back in a chair so she can keep working on her orally, and then lies back on the floor for Morgana to fuck her with a silver vibe. She rolls onto all fours and keeps taking the toy before letting Morgana get on all fours for it. Finally, the girls kiss and cuddle a little.
This is a pretty good scene. It has a very similar feel to the opening scene only with the addition of toys. It also moves a little faster, but there's still plenty of chemistry between the ladies. The camera work is better here again, and although there are a few shadows they don't interfere with this scene like some of the others. This is a pretty good scene to finish things with.
Dollface has a few faults, but still comes off as a likable fuck flick. I really like the movie's style of going back to the thirties and forties with plain shoes, nude stockings, and old style corsets and lingerie. The fur coats also add plenty of class, and the old fashioned nurse outfits was a great way to twist a commonly shared fetish. Kendo manages to mix in some nicely artistic camera work and editing, but at the same time that's what holds the movie back the most. The camera work in Nikki Sun's scene often made me wonder if somebody was even looking through the camera lens or if the movie was horribly chopped in order to give it the widescreen aspect ratio. It's made all the worse by so many shadows that it seemed like the scene might as well have been shot in the dark at times. Sadly, these problems pop up frequently in several of the scenes, and they take what was a great idea and make it almost unusable because there were so many times that I couldn't see anything I cared about that I figured I might as well get out the remote (which I always hate doing!). I think I fast forwarded through over half of the second scene, and I never felt like I was missing anything. Vanesa and Evelyn Lory give Dollface a fantastic start, but sadly the movie never gets back to the level they were at. Dollface has a great idea and some really nice styles, but sadly the camera work and editing rarely let it show just how sexy an idea it can be.

The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, lesbian, anal, ass to mouth, toys, voyeurism, and group
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: None
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Pulse’s DVDs can be found online for between about $17 and $25, with many stores offering them for around $20. That price might be a little high for this one, but if you're looking for something a little classy and different this one's definitely worth the rental. Although there are some bad shadows in places the technical aspects are otherwise very good. Sadly, there's no real effort put into the extras. This is a pretty good DVD with some great style.
Note to Pulse Pictures: Please watch your cover times better, as nobody likes to find out the movie they picked up is over a half hour shorter than they expected. Also, a few extras would be very nice.
