Shot in the music video/Michael Mann style, both highly expressive and visually stimulating, Christy Canyon portrays an intelligent young student majoring in criminology who believes the only true way to learn about criminals is to be taught by them. Becoming an apprentice to ring leader Rick Savage, Christy quickly learns the art of deception while slowly acknowledging her sensual desires.
Paul Thomas deserves acclaim for this extraordinary mood piece-where the sensual encounters are truly erotic and every scene is captivating. Christy Canyon is outstanding in each of her numerous sex scenes, delivering explosive performances which serve to stimulate the other actors, producing a volcanic series of carnal events. The most noteworthy of these scenes is the finale where Christy seduces T.T. Boy and Peter North, initiating a scorching three-way romp.
In addition to sex, the acting is also far above average. Rick Savage is brilliant and delivers an outstanding performance as the con man who is out to use and abuse his innocent pupil. As the shy, sexually repressed observer, Christy is surprisingly very believable. Complementing Thomas’ visual concept, Rick and Christy’s dramatic talents carry the feature, creating a positive distraction from the sometimes incoherent plot.With gorgeous packaging and superior quality, video store owners would be foolish not to stock this exceptional film on their shelves. Even the most critical adult movie connoisseur would be impressed by the artistic feel and the high production values. This is destined to be a classic.
