I started watching Wasted by British director Gazzman and couldn’t decide what category it fell into. Was it a mocumentary? Was it a spoof? Was it trying to be reality TV, but about porn and porn production?
I came to the conclusion that it’s what TV producers have taken to calling “Constructed Reality”. That is telling a story by carefully crafting a series of directed scenes, sometimes improvised, to tell a story as if it were happening for real. The director and the viewer form an unspoken agreement not to question this deceit. Through that metaphorical nod and wink we get to enjoy a rather extreme, R18 rated soap opera about some pretty out of control porn stars trying to make a movie despite them being depicted as having deep character flaws and mercurial behaviours.
We watch Brooklyn Lee, Angelina Valentine, Kelly Klass, Aiden Starr, Breanne Benson, James Deen, Nacho Vidal, Nick Manning, Danny Mountain and Tony De Sergio fight their respective daemons while they fuck for the camera.
James Deen is depicted as an alcoholic, steeling booze from sleeping vagrants and pissing on the windshield of an SUV while standing on the hood (it’s in the states OK, if he was in the UK it would be a windscreen and a bonnet :p)
Angelina Valentine is billed as a psychopath, and is pretty good at acting like a psycho diva for the purposes of the movie.
Nacho Vidal is apparently “Angry”, soooo he shouts a lot, throws a lot of things, breaks one camera of a journalist who wants to interview him and then fucks his co-star.
Nick Manning, “Pretty Boy Of Porn” doesn’t do humility, and he doesn’t get on with Nacho Vidal for the purposes of the DVD. He is only tamed when Aiden Starr has him gagged and strapped to a table. Apparently this scene isn’t for public release – oh dear, Gazzman seems to have forgotten and put it on the DVD.
In “Porn Couples” some nice use of gym equipment is used as we watch a porn couple row about a scene he did “behind her back” and then make up by fucking hard.
The end of the movie has Nacho Vidal scream into an underground parking lot at the studios, storm into the office and rant at the management. All very amusing.
If you know Gazzman’s work you know what the porn content of the movie will be like. Every position, every hole and lots of cum for you to enjoy. The settings are industrial and the fucking is vigorous and raw. Personally I liked Aiden Starr and Nick Manning’s scene best because it was different, a little kinky and playful in its execution. There’s more variety in this movie than in some of Gazzman’s output and the movie is better for it. The sex scenes are good, but it’s the movie as a whole that makes me tempted to say this is his best title yet.
The premise of this DVD is not entirely new but I’ve never seen it executed so well and to such good effect. There have been “reality” porn movies before but this one has a vitality and humour that means that I, a hater of soaps and constructed reality really enjoyed. This isn’t for everyone but you need to watch it to see that porn movies don’t have to have the budget of an epic to be different and entertaining.
Nice one Gazzman.
