Film Genre: Pornography

If you've had a decent amount of conversation with me, you'll know that I'm an advocate of pornography. At some point I'll have to rehash my history with the genre, but I think I'll save that for later.

Eon Mckai and Kimberly Kane spoke in a class at my alma mater, UCSB. Film Genre: Pornography. Apparently the class started the year after I graduated. I wish I had been there.

I've been following his work since Art School Sluts, and anyone who wants to use a moniker after the lead singer of Fugazi is okay by me. I've try to make it to the DVD release parties when I can. Eon is a decent fella if you ask me.

Art School Sluts, by the way, is as far as I know the first porn film to have been inspired by a comic book and which also preceded it's legit-film adaptation. If you haven't seen Art School Confidential, by Daniel Clowes and Terry Zwigoff, I'm not sure that it improves upon the source material, but Mckai's film is a trippy take on the subject.
