The interviews might not feel the most relaxed, the soundtrack's sometimes a bit strange (but still awesome - it's the eighties), and the story doesn't feel entirely complete but... it's about Mary Millington! A pornstar I'm not sure I'd ever heard of before, who lived on the bridge between sexual liberation and degeneration, and committed suicide 1979, only 33 years old. Ten years before I was even born. Just two over my age today.
Judging by included voice recordings she might not have been the smartest individual, but she seemed to be a warm one, and what a bod! What a shame they didn't know what proper make-up was back in the day (clarification: either have none at all or do it better), and that British accents (at least at the time) seem to necessitate a certain downward lip curl for certain dialog which looks a bit strange.
I don't mean to be judgmental though. She seemed a fascinating person, and this was a decent homage, though done in a way I think would've been very very different today. A bit more liberating/respectful now, I'd hope.
It was an interesting glimpse though, and interesting to see some of the sex scene in England too - or Europe at all for that matter - when today for some reason most of it seems to be centered on the US.
Mary seemed like a wonderful person; a pleasant presence looking back. Wish she'd led a longer life, and hope she fares well in whatever world she might be in now.
rated 3/5: not bad
