Film & TV on DVD - John Doe Film News & Reviews

 
Greetings Film Fiends and welcome to John Doe's Film Blog. 30 years of dedicated celluloid obsession has meant that I have seen a few films. Drawing attention to some of the lesser discussed gems that I love. Cult classics, obscure curios and quality genre pictures. This blogs purpose is to translate some of my passion for these films and with luck, inspire you the reader to go check em out.

If I said the words “Gina Gershon” and “Sex Tape”….

Gina Gershon and Tom Dicillo Sex Tape – Footage Included

Johnny is resorting to bombastic headlines on a Saturday morning, but all is not what it seems if you read on.

“That was so thespian I can’t even comprehend it” Writer/Director Tom DiCillo

Stumbled on this over at Cinematical.com and as Happy Harry Hardon spurts in Pump up the Volume, “Get one hand free boys and girls” cause Johnny has a tale to tell.

The story begins with the star, one time Bound lesbian lover Gina Gershon, who’s rock n roll attitude, pouting lips and swinging hips have made her the spice of many male and female erotic fantasies. (JD included)
"I was obsessed with Elvis Presley when I was little." - Gina Gershon

Having just finished shooting Delirious, the latest film from Jim Jaramusch’s Cinematographer and cult Indie Writer/Director Tom DiCillo (Living in Oblivion, Johnny Suede) she had been asked to come to his hotel room to shoot an interview to promote the art house attraction

Unsuspecting of what’s planned and oblivious to the fact cameras were rolling, Gina shows up at the door. In this unique piece of advertising material, we get to witness candid footage of the filmmakers trying to coerce the star into shooting a porn tape with plans to leak it around release for free publicity.

Who said I cant be empowered in a Bikini?


Raw, uncensored and uncomfortably humorous, whether this is staged or not its a revealing and authentic feeling insight into the machinations of desperation in low budget filmmaking.

Warning:Some colourful expletives can be heard
Does she or doesn’t she, you have to watch to find out!



Now for some perspective, here is an interview from the Sundance Channel with the Director and Gershon talking Delirious.

Man, was that "bait" or what?!
I always imagined Tom DiCillo looking more ... eccentric. Not so John Sayles looking ... lol
Gina still looks "hot to trot" though!

John,

this is for real right? Or was that whole video staged? I guess since the second trailer said it was real, guess it was!

LOL

So Delirious it is on August 25th for me!

*Snicker*

An adult fable...yeah sure...


Take care,

Nick

Hi Bryn,
One of the great marketing scams of all time methinks...Tom Dicillo looks more like an actor...as for Gina, she is the whole reason for the post, glad you liked what you saw.

Hi Nick,
The filmmakers are certainly promoting it as real, I guess the question is are Gina Gershon and her Director capable of maintaining the illusion without any editing cuts?

Either way its a stroke of genius advertising when you have no budget and seems to reflect the mood of the film.

John,

it does seem pretty raw to me, but then again, how many great movies were filmed in just the same way?

Who knows, we shall, as they say, just have to wait and see...

Really kinda liking Gershon though...Never paid much attention to her till now...

LOL

Take care,


Nick

That was either the most brilliant piece of cinema verite or maybe the most contrived piece of manipulative bastardry to try to boister the career aged floppy titted has been/never truly was actress since Meg Ryan flopped out the tits Dennis Quad rejects in In My Ass.

so, we're moving to the point where every actress will be releasing a sex tape. Is that a bad thing? Maybe not, but I wish they'd make it less grainy!

If this wasn't staged, then he's right about not needing a lecture. He needs dope slap. With a 2X4.

I love this video; it's probably my favorite out of the three that were used to promote the film. I hate to break it to you guys, but it was staged.

See the film though, it's great!
