The Image / Punishment of Anne (1975) - Uncut version
The film "Image" is one of the most iconic works in Metzger's work. Delivered by the same name sadomasochistic novel "L'image" Catherine Robbe-Grillet, the film has caused mixed feelings among the American critics. Some of them in anger scribbled devastating reviews of the picture, calling it a dirty exploitation. Another part considered Metzger a brave Creator who was not afraid to erase the line between porn and art.
The picture is full of obscene scenes. Heroes have sex (often not simulated) half of screen time. However, the tape does not roll into a base film for adults, thanks to the inimitable direction and a sense of style Metzger.
For actors Karl Parker and Marilyn Roberts "Image" was the biggest success in movies, however after series of loud scandals associated with movie, the road in Hollywood for them has been closed forever. Charming blonde Rebecca Brooke, who performed the main role, was lucky a little more she starred in a couple of erotic pictures of other Directors, but these tapes could not be called successful.
"Image" is worth seeing, at least, because such films are no longer removed. The days of porn chic are gone forever. The adult art industry, now, has nothing to do with art. And Directors like Radley Metzger today in the United States.
