    NIGHTDREAMS and CAFE FLESH, along with DR. CALIGARI, share the same style.

    On the other hand, NIGHTDREAMS 2-3 and PARTY DOLL 1-2 are similar. Here, there is not really a story, but a collection of weird vignettes shot with a low budget. Dream is more ironic and distanced than ever, the dialogue is full of strange references and sentences, repeated again and again, with a dynamic use of editing. I would say NIGHTDREAMS 2 is better, but it's a question of opinion.

    PARTY DOLL is definitely an ironic film. Example : you have a lesbian scene that is cut from time to time by the two girls talking to the camera, saying : "wo-oh...girl homo". It's obvious that they're making fun of the viewer, and that Dream uses a postmodern approach to the material : he obeys to the rules of the genre, but he points them out and shows their conventional (coded) aspect.

    I don't think it is cut on the DVD... I don't see what could have been cut, as this is strange, indeed, but neither violent, nor disturbing.

    I think the most erotic of Dream's work is NIGHTDREAMS (the original), even though CAFE FLESH is a fascinating piece of porn sci-fi.

    Madison is very hot in PARTY DOLL. Lower budget and very set-bound, with a bunch of staccato-style editing and, as Fred mentioned, strange, ironic dialog. Pretty great music in PARTY DOLL, too.

    Dream's COWGIRLS is similar in style to PARTY DOLL.

    I like PARTY DOLL a lot, very funny and weird, plus the sex is hot. Whole bunch of quotable dialogue. "How's the condition of your girl biscuit?"

    Jeanna Fine is seen here pre-boobjob although the cover art features pictures of her after breast enhancement.

    Not comparable to the genius of NIGHTDREAMS and CAFE FLESH but much better than the incredibly dull NIGHTDREAMS 2 & 3.

    Are there any plans for a dvd release of UNTAMED COWGIRLS?

    Just saw PARTY DOLL A GO-GO tonight for the first time. Was pretty amazed at how entertaining it was, considering I usually think very little of shot-on-video content from the 1990s. This very well may be one of the 5 best films of that sort from that era, now that I think of it.

    Here's a pretty great review of it, with some screen captures:

    (It's a shame the title of this thread got the film title wrong. It made it hard to find. If a mod could fix it, that would be great.)

    Yeah, these have been growing on me. I watched the first one, was like "all right," and waited months (perhaps even a year) to watch the second one, which is really just an extension. In fact, the second brings things back around to the first, and made the whole experience more satisfying.

    My friend described it as "video art" in style and that really does seem to categorize it best - almost like something you would see playing in a museum installation. I have little patience for the avant garde, and it is indeed willfully difficult, but over time, it's grown on me. There's some hilarious dialogue, and the film takes a number of ironic digs at mainstream porn convention. It's a tough slog sometimes, but it's also hard to imagine a more intellectual piece of work coming out of the 90s video scene.

    Dream's body of work is a constant source of fascination for me. I still need to see NIGHTDREAMS 2 & 3 as well as the COWGIRLS films. Both pairs, unfortunately, appear to be absent from DVD, though I have no idea why...

    Well put, John.

    I agree very much with what your friend called it. Almost all of my favourite porn is content that works on more than one level, and this is no different. I guess if I have any issue with it at all, it's that despite how random and jarring the editing may seem at first, if you're paying attention you quickly notice that it follows the same predictable routine role of any porn scene from that era. In that once you notice the pattern/formula, you can time exactly what is going to happen, and when.

    Then again, maybe that is yet another dig by Rinse on the porn industry. That you can construe his intentions different ways at all is yet another reason to like this thing. It's certainly more of a conversation piece 99% of the shot-on-video content of its era.

    The basic content is definitely the "same-old-same-old," which I think is the point. Obviously I don't know the actual story to confirm, but Dream's whole career in XXX seems to play like a constant struggle to escape the boundaries defined by the genre (or mode). CAFE FLESH, for instance, is frequently described (well, I think) as a sort of anti-erotica, and indeed, it's just as subversive in its address of the viewer as PARTY DOLL, if not more. The entire audience in CAFE FLESH is composed of leering, impotent ghouls, many with grotesque physical deformities. They pathetically gather to watch sex performed on stage out of a desperate desire to experience something they can never obtain. PARTY DOLL, by contrast, isn't quite so brutal in its relation to the viewer - it seems merely concerned with subverting his (and I do mean His) expectations rather than truly excoriating him. Instead, its most trenchant critique seems reserved for the rote, mechanical nature porn itself has attained by this point. No longer able to get away with giant ratmen performing cunnilingus in front of a chorus of rattle-shaking baby-men, Dream's only recourse is to subvert porn convention via montage, so he seems to settle on just liberalizing the absurdity of the whole thing, having his girls spouting off goofy, disjunctive lingo and constantly interrupting the flow of the scenes via jagged, disjunctive editing. I was honestly quite shocked to hear people say they thought this was good porn - on my pass, it seemed way too fragmentary to be jerk-off-able. A steady gaze is often helpful in achieving pornography's purpose (presumably ejaculation). PARTY DOLL never stops moving, cutting, etc. I have no source to back this up, of course, but it would be my guess from watching the films that Dream was rather dissatisfied by being "buried" in the porn genre and was doing everything he could to sabotage it from within. Of course, I think some of the best art can be produced by an artist pushing against the confines of his limits (see, similarly, the best works of Japanese pink film), and Dream's films are, I think, exemplary of the best type of work that can be produced under these circumstances.



    PS - Michael: the DVD double feature is of quite nice quality, and very cheap. Definitely get it if you're a fan of the films!

    Very intriguing take on Dream's work, John.

    His quick cutting does fly in the face of the extended gaze, and forms a very fragmented type of pornography.

    I've always loved his use of music.

    You have seen his DR. CALIGARI, I presume? Similar aesthetic, but more structured. An excellent movie.

    I've always believed Greg Dark borrowed much stylistically from Sayadian. The design of flicks such as 'Sex Freaks', 'Devil in Miss Jones 3 & 4', and 'New Wave Hookers' is testament to my belief.

    I still do think the movies are hot because the actresses are so damned interesting and carnal in these roles.

    Re: RINSE DREAM'S PARTY GIRL A GO GO STARRING JEANNA FINE

    CALIGARI really is the connecting work bridging the early-80s aesthetic with the 90s video one, in Dream's universe, I think. It's sort of a loose remake of NIGHTDREAMS in some ways, I think (importantly, both films' nymphomaniacal protagonists share the name van Houten), but heralds the emergence of the day-glo PARTY DOLL aesthetic. I'd really like to see a full analysis of Dream's body of work. It's a shame he never had another chance to make a non-X feature, as CALIGARI is really great, in my opinion.

    I'm glad you (and others, apparently) find the movies hot, as that *is* what they're there for, at the end of the day. I'm just a little surprised, that's all, as I think Dream's working against you.

    You know who is REALLY working against us? Pornographers that are lulling my boner to sleep with the same tired formula driven xxx decade after decade. Rinse Dream did his own thing, and that is the very definition of sexy.
