By Jamie MacDougall TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Destricted is a collection of short films that are meant to illuminate the line where art and pornography intersect. The UK and US releases each contain slightly different line-ups of shorts. The UK version contains seven short films, while the US version contains eight. This review is of the US version, which includes:

“Hoist” (15 min) An odd, but captivating little film (with some intriguing shots of man “meeting” machine) that is told with a traditional three acts of film narrative. Directed by Matthew Barney. (3 out of 5 stars)

“House Call” (12 min) Basically just a clip from an old porn movie (about a doctor making a house call to a well oiled blonde) that looks like its been recorded with a digital camera off of a TV or computer screen. Directed by Richard Prince. (1 out of 5 stars)

“Cooking” (15 min) This beautifully shot segment may prove to be a bit too much for viewers with weak stomachs due to its strong scenes of Urophagia and Coprophagia. Directed by Tunga. (2 out of 5 stars)

“Scratch This” (11 min) A take on censorship with the faces and genitals of three actresses in an all girl threesome scratched out frame by frame. Directed by Sante D’Orazio. (1 out of 5 stars)

“Green Pink Caviar” (8 min) A tongue licking several colorful substances off a pane of glass is filmed entirely in close-up. Directed by Marilyn Minter (1 out of 5 stars)

“Impaled” (38 min) Director Larry Clark (Kids, Bully) auditions several people (focusing on the effect that pornography has had on their lives) for an adult film shoot. Directed by Larry Clark (3 out of 5 stars)

“Four Letter Heaven” (3 min) This short is composed of individually hand-painted frames of a sexual encounter. Directed by Cecily Brown.

5.0 out of 5 stars Artful Sex Compilation June 14 2011
By DVD/OCD TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The DVD "Destricted" presents 8 short films made by 8 different international directors all purportedly focused on issues of sex, pornography, and art. Because of the 'artful' nature of these vignettes their content, which in many cases includes hard-core imagery, tends to be thought provoking rather than arousing. One would assume that this was 'the point' of the exercise, and, as such, I think that the collection of erotica succeeds quite nicely. The variety of approaches taken by the various film-makers is decidedly interesting. Several of the pieces utilize rather standard porn footage that is 'manipulated' in some fashion to cause the viewer to analyze the content in a non-standard way. There is a brief animated film that uses rotoscoped sex scenes that have been hand painted to create a lush impressionistic feel. A surreal Euro film sequence depicts a couple making love where the man's member is a giant crystal that is shattered, then reconstructed in a most unusual fashion, featuring faux scatological imagery that demonstrates the power of film to create disturbing illusions. Dissembodied lips press suggestively against a glass plate full of various colorful viscous liguids creating pictures that are at once erotic and disturbing. The longest segment is a bit of a documentary that focuses on the 'casting' for a short porn film - interviewing potential male and female performers and giving insights into the real people behind the porno product. All in all VERY thought provoking, and potentially a good 'couples film' as it presents erotic and stimulating sexual imagery in an intelligent context.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some Images May Be Disturbing Nov. 22 2011
By Francis Boring - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the 8 scene dvd. Manual masturbation with heavy equipment, toys, 70's porn, watersports, scat & more. Pretty much anything from the brightest sections of the porn filled internet to the darker, harder to find fetishes. As posted before, this is a collection of what 8 different people say is erotic or what they like porn-wise.
Some is grainy & hard to see. Others are recent, clean & light filled detail.
Parts of this made me skip ahead while others were enjoyable to watch. If you are a fan of erotica & wish to partake in the buffet, then this is a wonderful dvd. If you only want fries with that, then you will be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking (in a good way!) Art Film Oct. 20 2010
By N. Reschovsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Wow! No words can accurately describe this film. Destricted is a collection of short films by a bunch of well known artists (including two of my favorites, Larry Clark and Matthew Barney!) It aims to explore the relationship between art and porn, and spark debate about whether sex and pornography should be considered art. Parts of it are actually shocking and all of it is pretty explicit, but definitely makes you look at porn in a different light. Worth watching...unlike any film I've ever seen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just bizarre June 18 2011
By James R. Gilligan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
By far one of the oddest collection of short films I have ever seen, "Destricted" is more of a curiosity than a form of entertainment. As I viewed these experimental films (most of which lack any sort of dialogue or coherent narrative), I began to sense that I had not taken nearly enough film studies courses to appreciate what I was watching. The films range from the simply weird (a montage of a woman--I think--lapping up various viscous substances from a glass table, shot entirely from underneath the table) to the bizarrely erotic (a naked man, with a turnip protruding from his rectum, masturbating against the rotating driveshaft of a tractor). This collection of films contains a great deal of nudity and explicit sex, yet the most interesting film in the bunch is Larry Clark's documentary, which features interviews with a number of mostly ordinary looking young men and haggard-looking porn actresses discussing their sexual experiences. Purportedly a series of auditions for a porn flick, Clark's film culminates with one lucky young man consummating his experience with one of the actresses. This film is interesting in the broadest sense of the word, but certainly not for the modest, the faint of heart, or the easily shocked. Worth seeing, but probably just once.

5.0 out of 5 stars Destricted Nov. 3 2010
By Mel Agace - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I saw Destricted at Sundance when it premiered, it was shocking and so fantastic in equal measure. My favourite was Larry Clark's film, which was a funny, sad and an insight into american youth and their idea of sex today.

There is not alot out there like destricted, people will love or hate it but I feel that true independent is all about ideas like this.
There are a few films to choose from on a DVD menu, so you can choose what you watch and in what order, now thats what I call being in control of your viewing pleasure!
