On My Dirty Knees is a great showcase for Andy San Dimas, and also for Violet Skye, the two girls who alternate carrying the scenes here (Andy in scenes 1, 3 & 5; Violet in scenes 2 & 4). Eon McKai has been developing some features that have not been carried so much by an explicit plot or dialogue as by set-ups and aesthetics, and this feature really has very little sense of plot, but there are elements of thematic unity. The video plays off of the theme of young women making their way into the "micro-famous" world of the adult industry.

Things start with us seeing a low-grade video of Andy San Dimas posing on a computer screen. So we get the sense that she is on her way into the adult film star life, but the way that the video is presented gives an interesting vantage point: one I don't find easy to convey. On the whole, there are but minimal attempts to demonstrate progression through the scenes. This minimalist approach, though, really works in bringing out the mood and sexual energy of the scenes, as they are never cluttered with trying to do too much: the sexual energy and tension is always at the focus. Everything is focused around the sexual mood and tone, and that includes the style of lighting and use of soundtrack, or the absence of it.

The scenes are allowed to develop slowly and they build really well, so that one shouldn't find themselves compelled to skip along to look for the next hot moment.

From my point of view, it seems like Eon McKai has tried to bring out a sense of awkwardness or some form of "realism" in much of his work, and that is worked into this movie. The scenes take on a more natural and believable feel. And whereas some of McKai's early work, like in the Kill Girl Kill series, seemed to be playing with attraction and repulsion at the same time this film doesn't bear any sense of repulsion.
Everything here is done really well and gives as realistic a feeling of sexuality as any pornography I've watched.

Scene one features Andy San Dimas and her boyfriend, Vin Vericose, as they stop off a highway and make out before leading to sex. Scene two introduces Violet Skye and she's staying with Dane Cross. They have some awkwardness between them, but the tension builds slowly and heats up into a great scene. Scene three features Andy San Dimas again, this time taking on Alex Gonz. There is lighting overlaid in this scene when they are on the couch, giving it a very dreamlike feel. Things move to a bathroom, where Andy gives an intense blowjob on her knees to Alex. (She does some really hot BJ work throughout the movie). They screw against the wall, which is really hot, and he screws her mouth some more to finish. Scene four features Violet and Daniel hooking up without much in the way of set-up. A very nice paced scene here with really good sexual intensity. Scene five would seem to indicate Andy's making it into the industry, and she performs with Alex Knight.

Extras and notes: For extras, there is optional audio commentary, there is a behind the scenes segment, there are trailers for other vivid.alt titles, and there is a photo gallery. The menus are done really nice, and the opening sequence is really cool as well. Everything seems to have been given a great deal of care and attention to getting just the right effect. Also, I feel compelled to mention that Andy San Dimas seems to have a picture of Robert Smithson's spiral jetty installation on her bedroom wall, which you can see during the phone message portion of scene 2.

Conclusions I really like this movie and I think it's quite an achievement. Andy and Violet put in great performances and are incredibly sexy throughout. The editing, positioning, lighting, costuming and the score all feel just right.

I have been a fan of McKai's work for a few years now and as much as I've liked movies like Neu Wave Hookers and The Doll Underground, I feel right now that this is his best work so far that I've seen for both the quality of the sex scenes and in the overall aesthetic. It's very hot stuff, and I totally recommend checking it out and picking up a copy for yourself.
