The Short Story
Initial Expectations: Marc Dorcel has released some nice movies. Iím looking forward to this one.
Initial Reaction: Itís not bad, but still pretty forgettable.
Who Should Watch It : Anybody who wants beautiful women more than they want chemistry
Who Should Avoid It: Anybody wanting something closely resembling a plot for their features
The Technical Stuff
Audio /Video Quality: The technical aspects are nicely done. Yes, I watched the English dub, but it was normally nicely balanced and even seemed to favor going back to the actual audio for much of the sex. The video is also well done. It has a touch of grain and a few shadows, but is normally pretty well lit.
Music: The music often has a dance feel that starts off good and quickly gets annoying by not seeming to vary much.
Menus: The main menu is pretty darn cool, and works together a bit of the movie with an internet feel. The chapter menu keeps the cool feel, and because of it works much better than all the other chapter menus that donít care to do more than just give a clip of each scene and a chapter number.
The FeatureWhile on a business trip, Danielleís man brought her back a little statue. Sheís not sure, but after a while she thinks itís having sexual effects on those around her. Not only does she hear African drums after banging her husband, she and others seem to hear it after other sexual encounters which theyíre not sure if theyíre real or dreams.
|Scene 1 - Daniella Schiffer and a guy|
After hearing a thunderstorm outside, tall blonde Danielle gets back in bed and needs to take on her man right away. She kisses him before working her way down to suck his cock. She comes back up so he can suck her tits before lying back and letting him tongue her twat and fuck it missionary style. Danielle gets up to ride him reverse cowgirl style before letting him take her from behind in each of her holes. They get in a bit of anal spooning as well before a bit of passionate kissing and Danielle stroking her man until he pops on her chest.
This is a pretty good scene. I like how thereís plenty of kissing mixed into the scene, and the romantic feel to the anal. The scene moves along pretty well, but at the same time it felt fairly choppy with the position changes. This is a good scene, but nothing overly special.
|Scene 2 - A blonde and a guy|
When a blonde heads upstairs, in a sexy little black dress, the driver follows her upstairs. She puts him off after he admires her in the bedroom, but gives in when he finds her in the kitchen. They kiss before she makes his way down his chest to suck his cock. He helps her out of her sexy black outfit and tongues her ass in return before fucking her pussy from behind. He moves on to fuck her ass both from behind and as she lies back on the counter before stroking himself off onto her pussy.
This is an okay scene. Like so many European pornos, the girl is beautiful but a bit cold. The energy level also doesnít seem to be there much, and the scene never really drew me in too far. The chick is hot and takes it in the ass nicely, but the overall scene just didnít do it for me.
|Scene 3 - Angel Dark, a brunette, a couple blondes, James Brossman, and a couple guys|
While at a business meeting, an orgy broke out. One of the brunettes starts to strip down and crawls across the table in the middle of the meeting, causing everybody to forget what they were doing and instead concentrate on employee relations. A couple of the guys start out getting their knobs gobbled before they break out fucking all around. The guys lay the girls back on the desk to fuck them missionary style, starting out with their pussy and moving on to the ass for a few of them while also letting the girls mix in a few positions. Finally the girls suck and stroke the guys to nice facials.
This is an okay scene. The girls are hot and do a nice job of taking it in the ass, but the scene never really seems to go anywhere. It moves along fairly slow, and beyond never grabbing me, often threw me out when I tried getting back in. Iím not a big fan of orgies, and this one did nothing to change my mind.
|Scene 4 - Lucy Love, Angel Dark, a blonde, and Tristan Segal|
When Tristan and a blonde head off to the bathroom for a little loving, brunette Lucy decides to watch rather than leave them their privacy. It doesnít take long for the couple to move past kissing and on to a blowjob, and soon after Angel makes her way back to the ladies room and starts getting it on with Lucy. Lucy helps suck the cock a bit as well before they let the girlfriend get fucked missionary style on the counter. Tristan lakes Lucy from behind next, before giving it to Angel missionary style. Finally Angel and the girlfriend get down to let Tristan pop on the girlfriendís tits and share a kiss after Lucy leaves them.
This is an okay scene. The girls seem to get into things okay, and once again look great. The scene also had a soft style that didnít do a lot for me as well as being broken apart with the party and some of the other action. This is a pretty average scene.
|Scene 5 - Lucy Love and two guys|
After leaving the bathroom, Lucy heads out to see a couple guys in the garage. She kisses one while the other admires her ass before dropping down to gobble their knobs. She keeps sucking one of the guys while the other takes her from behind before getting a little missionary action. Lucy lets him have each of her holes missionary style, and even gets down for a cowgirl DP on the ground in the garage. Finally Lucy sucks and strokes the guys until the pop on her face.
This is an above average scene. Lucy was the main actress I looked forward to seeing in action here, and she looked to get into her scene pretty well. She gives some nice vocals and gets into it physically as well, but the editing and camera work just didnít do a lot for me. There was also a bit of camera mugging, which almost never works for me in scenes like this. This is an above average scene, but not by much.
|Scene 6 - A blonde and Bob Terminator|
During the party, Bob gets it on with a blonde who leans over to eagerly suck his cock. She slides the condom on his cock with her mouth before sliding off the edge of their booth for Bob to fuck her missionary style. Soon after she slides his rubber off and lets him cum on her bush.
This scene didnít do a lot for me. The chick is hot and I liked how they worked the rubber into the scene with the blowjob, but overall it seemed short and cold. I just couldnít get into this scene.
|Scene 7 - A brunette and a guy|
Danielleís hubby heads to the club kitchen to get it on with one of his former girlfriends. She stoops down to suck his cock while giving him some nice eyes before lying back on one of the tables for him to lick her slit. He slides on a rubber she passes him before fucking her missionary style, and then takes her from behind while giving her ass a couple slaps. He even lets her have a reverse cowgirl ride before they hop down so she can suck him to a pop in her mouth.
This is a pretty good scene. The chick is hot, and thereís actually some chemistry to go with the action. It moves along okay, but the plot breaking in a couple times hurt the scene for me. This is an above average scene that had the potential to be much better.
|Scene 8 - Daniella Schiffer and a guy|
They kiss before Danielle once again makes her way down the dudeís stomach with a couple soft kisses and then kisses his cock through his pants. She breaks him out to suck while looking up at him intently before they head to the couch for him to kiss her stomach, legs, and of course, pussy, as he slides a couple fingers inside to help warm her up. They fuck missionary style before he spoons each of Danielleís holes, and they even get in an anal reverse cowgirl ride. Finally Danielle strokes her partner off in front of her face.
This is a pretty good scene. Once again thereís a bit of chemistry, and the scene flows pretty well despite some choppy editing with no position changes. Danielle takes it in the ass very well, and makes the scene work nicely. This is a good scene to end the movie with, and one of the best in the movie.
Obsessions is a pretty average fuck flick. It has a few things going for it, such as beautiful women, some nice chemistry in a couple scenes, and a more romantic feel than usual, especially for European porn. On the other hand, there wasnít a single person in the movie I cared about at all and the story didnít do anything for me. The scenes also had a repetitive feel. Yes, I know, most porn has a repetitive feel, but it seemed like every scene had to have the girls kissing their way across the guyís stomach and made a big production of the condom. Yes, I know, Iím one of the guys who said that if condoms were worked into the scene it would be much better than having them magically appear, and if this is how itís done, Iíll readily admit that I was wrong with that. Obsessions isnít a bad movie, but thereís nothing unique about it or anything about it that made me have any feeling other than ambivalence towards it.
The Extra StuffTrailers are included for Cabaret Sodom Club, Russian Institute Lecon 2, and Priscila Pornochic 6. Thereís also a couple really nicely done bonus segments promoting safe sex, contact information, DVD-Rom content, and a behind the scenes featurette.
The behind the scenes featurette lasts nearly a half hour, and only has French audio. You get to see a bit of the girls in the make-up chair, some of the sex being shot, and plenty of the still photos being shot. Itís pretty good eye candy, but thatís about it.
The Down -n- Dirty Sex Stuff
Themes: Straight, anal, rimming (male > female), lesbian, orgy, DP, and public sex
Raincoat Factor: High
Condom Usage: All except the first scene
The Bottom Line:Currently, many of Wickedís Marc Dorcel releases can be found online for between $18 and $25, with stores offering them everywhere in between. Rent this one before you even think about spending that much on this one. The sex isnít anything special and the plot is so generic itís almost annoying. The technical aspects are nicely done, but although the extras show a bit of effort thereís nothing too special about them. This is a forgettable DVD.
Note to Wicked / VMD: A cast listing by scene would be a great addition to your DVDs.
