The Baron's Whores (Les Putains du Baron): An Adult Movie Review
I couldn't wait to watch The Baron's Whores (Les Putains du Baron in French), the latest plot-oriented porn video from French powerhouse studio Marc Dorcel. Dorcel has long reliably been recognized as a producer of sumptuous, high-end XXX movies. Just watching the trailer my co-worker made piqued my interest:
I was hooked by the Baron's (played by Clarke Kent)'s quote at the beginning of the film, "Don't ever say it's just sex." And so begins the tale of JJ, a photographer's assistant who becomes a fabulously wealthy pornographer whose life is heavily peppered with sexual adventures. Unfortunately, the Baron is suffering from creative, though not sexual, stagnancy. How meta of Dorcel to make a smut film about the trouble with making smut films! Not only that, but JJ is making amends for screwing over the models he shot earlier in his career by taking care of their daughters. As he says, "I haven't always treated the women in my career well, but I make sure their daughters will never be exploited. Who knows how many of them could be mine?"
Everything about The Baron's Whores signifies luxury-from the all star cast of both American and European porn stars, to the lush sets, tantalizing costuming, and the amount of heart-stopping group sex in the film. The Baron's world is a world of exclusivity, and Dorcel's production value paired with Gazzman's directing excellently elevate this porn film to decadently chic hardcore. I suggest you take your time to watch the whole film. You can skip to the sex, but there really isn't too much acting between the XXX scenes. Besides, it's worth watching Dani Daniels direct a porn scene; the performers really don't get raunchy with one another until she steps in to emphatically show them how to grab cocks and rub pussy. This is just one of a myriad of highlights from the film.
There simply isn't a bad sex scene in this movie. My personal favorite scene is the second one as it alternates between JJ's limo blow job from redhead Amarna Miller and Samantha Bentley's deliciously endless fuck scene with Mike Angelo. Samantha is one of the girls JJ is to look after, but she has other plans with her cook, Mike, recommended to her by JJ. It's like watching the adult version of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. JJ plays with his iPad while Amarna sucks his rock hard cock, yet he seems disinterested in the act. It's almost as though sex might be "just sex" for him in person while it's much more than that when it comes to profiting from porn.
Look, I don't mean to read too deeply in this fuck flick. It's just a bit like sipping Laphroaig and letting the flavor settle into your palate while you get richly tipsy. Nothing is wasted in The Baron's Whores. Everyone is the movie is getting what they want, and I encourage you to do the same.
