After Porn Ends (2012)

After Porn Ends (2012)

So it turns I had seen this one before after all! I recognized the interviews right from the start, so I guess they had an impact on me after all. Considering how long ago this first watch probably was.

Watching through this again, with the two sequels fresh in mind, this comes across a bit more jaded than the newer ones. It's not as sugarcoated about the business overall, which is good: less bias, but it's also feels a bit unnecessarily sensationalistic. It seems to make an unappreciative attempt at taking up all sides, balancing good and bad endings but really leaning towards the bad.

Maybe that's why the director, five years later, chose to make a sequel that paints a much more positive image of the biz. Maybe it took some time for him to turn. This one delves into stigmas and relations on a much more somber level, less about the business itself than the people, but it also seems to tell the stories of those who were hurt, not by the industry so much as by personal choice or coincidence, and that's not really what it's about is it? In hindsight it all feels pretty skewed, even if the interviews are done well, and reveal a lot about the personalities of each one interviewed. I enjoyed watched them again.

It does interview a solid set of icons too, most memorably Amber Lynn, Asia Carrera (I read her blog before I knew who she was), Crissy Moran (she's the Christian one in this one), Houston, John Leslie (RIP), Richard Pacheco, Seka, Tiffany Million, Mary Carey, Raylene, Randy West and Nina Hartley, and I do appreciate that! With the cast in mind it does seem to be the most ambitious out of the three so far, and I'm hoping they'll bring in some of the remaining legends in potential sequels too.

Ron Jeremy comes to mind...
