In this often Puritanical culture of ours, jam packed as it is with hypocritical attitudes on sexuality, the whiff of pornography on any film can drive away audiences in droves, as people often assume that any adult-film connotations must mark the film itself as obscene trash. This is odd, as we love movies about all manner of criminality, up to and including serial killing, yet we're able to make the distinction between the subject and the art, no matter how heinous the crimes involved.
In the new comedy Meet Monica Velour, now available on Blu-ray and DVD, Kim Catrall plays Linda Romanoli, a retired porn actress who had her heyday in the 1980's and is now a single mother working hard to make ends meet. When she's tracked down by an awkward teenager, played by Dustin Ingram, who idolizes her based on her days as Monica Velour, the two form an unlikely connection that yields surprising results for both. Inspired by Meet Monica Velour, our latest Rogue 10 list presents ten films that may involve the porn industry, but that are really about far more than that.
We love Kate Bosworth! She has a fresh and natural beauty that really shines on screen. Back in 2002, she first appeared as Judith – a supporting role in The Horse Whisperer. Since then, she made the guys fall in love with her in Blue Crush. She even fell into the arms of Brandon Routh’s Superman for Superman Returns.
In her latest, The Warrior’s Way, she causes a little damage of her own along with Jang Dong-gun. And frankly, it’s a pleasure to see her throwing knives around and getting the chance to be tough!
iamROGUE.com takes a look back at Kate’s past work as we narrow down our 5 favorites.
