Review brief: Produced, directed, written and edited by Armand Weston, EXPOSE ME LOVELY (1976, Video-X-Pix) follows on the heels of the domestic film FAREWELL MY LOVELY (1975) as Ras Kean plays a Philip Marlowe-type character named Frosty Knight, who sucks and fucks his way through the seedy under belly of NYC and solves a case along the way. Look for Annie Sprinkle and Jennifer Wells among the femme fatales and good girls in this porn noir offering. Standard frame. 91 minutes.

Review brief: Armand Weston's most narratively complex film which pays homage to film noir while being brilliantly set in the underground world of New York City. A must see.

Review brief: Armand Weston's third feature The Taking of Christina remains both his most visceral and dynamic film even over 30 years after it was made. Featuring excellent performances from its three leads, especially Bree Anthony, solid scripting and direction from Weston and a fine original score from Jack Justice, Christina is one of the strongest hardcore features from the mid 70s.

Review brief: Armand Weston was one of the finest directors ever to make hardcore films. Although he usually crafted dark and depressing tales, this 1978 film was his foray into comedy. With a fantastic cast of regulars, and Leslie Bovee as the female lead, Weston crafted a wonderful, skilfully acted, sumptuously shot, and cleverly written parody of films of American culture from the 30s to the 60s.

Review brief: This 1978 feature directed by "Armand Weston" is a good example of "golden age" adult filmmaking. The plot is a take off on the Oscar Wilde story, "The Picture of Dorian Grey." The protagonist's name has been changed from Dorian Grey to "Darrin Blue," (played amazingly by Wade Nichols). And instead of a painting, his youthful image is captured on a porn film that his liberated 1920's flapper girlfriend (Georgina Spelvin) secretly had made of them making love outdoors. When she shows it to him later, he wishes that the image on the film could get old, and that he could stay youthful forever. You might have guessed that that is exactly what happens. The 1930s have Wade Nichols doing a remarkable imitation of James Cagney, during the 1940s, he's doing Humphrey Bogart (and Annette Haven). During the 50s, he's doing James Dean and making love on his motocycle. During the 1960s, still as youthful as ever, he is, you guessed it, a hippie doing drugs and having an orgy. Since this was shot in the 1970s, that brings us up to the present.
