Alis Locanta Outlines A New Erotic Cinema
Alis Locanta understands the rules, conventions, and our expectations of erotic cinema — and he delights in breaking, subverting, and defying them. Outlines, his 10 piece series of exceptional erotic episodes, is his experimental playground to redefine the genre. Thus, Outlines is not a continuous saga but rather a collection of light-handed staged sexy short films. Each comes with its own visual language, some sensual and surreal while others are bold and fetishized. A raunchy round dance with recurring actresses (Alexa Tomas & Silvie Luca & Taylor Sands among others), again and again an ever-changing feast for the eyes.
SexArt Outlines Episode 1 – ShowTime
Cast: Melena A
In this first episode of his 4K series “Outlines” he returns to the single girl masturbation feature — a genre in which he’s a respected master — and takes it in a new and unexpected direction. The film is short, but it is dense, layered, complex. The action is simple, but the visual language is rich, intricate, engrossing. The director has subtitled this film “ShowTime,” and bills it as “a Locanta vision,” and that thumbnail is instructive: Think of this not so much as a linear narrative, but as a visual tone poem. Melena A stars. She caresses an old TV set, then turns it on, gazing at the snowy image from mere inches away. We see what she’s seeing: herself as she begins to take off her short pants, the image grainy, the colors saturated. Melena A, now bathed in the light from and transfixed by the image on the off-camera screen, lost in the moment, eases her panties down her long legs. She begins to masturbate, her moist slit glistening luridly in the cathode glow. Perspectives shift. The distorted gains in clarity, the line between the watcher and the watched blurs. The intensity builds, gliding, grinding, ratcheting upward. And then, release — powerful, surprising, exquisite.
