The bottom line on the second and third volumes of Henri Pachard's "porn stars filming themselves" formula? The sex is pretty consistently hot, but that's got little if anything to do with the high concept. Put another way, there's nothing inherent in sticking a camera in the hands of an X-rated performer that enhances his or her sex scenes.
Yes, you can come up with some hot shots; one that lends itself particularly well to this type of arrangement is when a male performer, such as cameraman T.T. Boy, while standing, films an extreme close-up of, say, Sophia Ferrari on her knees, sucking his perpetually hard weenie. But any director could get virtually the very same shot manning the camera him or herself. And indeed, Pachard does that very thing throughout both volumes, in the final mix editing in his footage with that taken by the performers.
But doesn't that mean that the Venom concept as hyped is, at the very least, a bit misleading? You are correct, sir. No wonder Pachard gets a directing credit.
