The Cultural Gutter

hey, there's something shiny down there...

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." -- Oscar Wilde

Jizztastic!

You read about it here (and here) and now you can have it all to yourself, former Gutter movie editor Robin Bougie’s XXX movie, The Cumming of Jizzus. Check out Robin’s blog for more info.

Saving the Fox

The CBC interviews former Gutter Movie Editor Robin Bougie about Vancouver’s famous and endangered grindhouse palace, The Fox. (He wrote an article about the Fox and the Venus–read it here).

The Cumming Of Jizzus – Scene 2 Set Diary

In thy kingdom, he cums!

The relatively short 4 hour shoot for the first scene of this triple XXX bible story provided some very exciting results, but how would scene two of THE CUMMING OF JIZZUS play out? Well, it took a while to get started since the first snowstorm of the season in Vancouver held up our performers, and […]

Jizzus Set Diary, Day One

Witnessing the res-Errection

This past Saturday (November 11th 2006) was a day at least 4 months in the making. It was somewhere about that long since scriptwriter Karina Jordi provided us with the script/idea we’d need to roll this project in motion, and investors had been nailed down. The project? Cinema Sewer presents: THE CUMMING OF JIZZUS.

Van Comics

The eyes have it

I believe in judicious self-awareness; a director like Nicolas Winding Refn knows exactly why he makes the directorial choices he makes, and he works those kinks right out onscreen.

    Or, if you aren’t enjoying a piece of work—if ultraviolence isn’t your thing, or if you’re suffering a visceral reaction—it’s every bit as important that you identify what about the piece is making you uncomfortable.”

    In  Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, “Women As Background Decoration: Part 2,” Anita Sarkeesian discusses “how sexualized female bodies often occupy a dual role as both sexual playthings and the perpetual victims of male violence.” It is quite graphic in terms of violence and sexual violence.
