Joe Pesci’s academy award winning performance in Good Fellas has prompted a spinoff line that has taken on a life all of its own: you think I’m a funny guy?
At least that line shows signs of breathing in Anthony Spinelli’s latest feature, Indiscretions. Joey Silvera plays a wired, totally insecure, beat-up, end-of-the-line nite club comic named Danny Guttman. Guttman has played every toilet in the world and he bends any ear within range with his incessant nagging……was I funny?…..was I funny?
Guttman’s act features risqué jokes that are about forty years old some of which are funny, most of them are stupid, but cigarette girl Alice springs doesn’t seem to mind. She keeps making these sappy goo-goo eyes at the acerbic Guttman and she’s in another world. But Guttman’s character is going nowhere, and he burns his bridges, so Alice is definitely barking up the wrong tree if she’s looking for romance. You feel for this woman and would love to feel her, as Alice brings her sex scenes alive with throbbing intensity. She is steadily becoming one of the premier performers in this business.
Indiscretions is a thoroughly interesting character study, and you don’t see too many of these any more in adult video. It manages to cram a lot to say about Guttman’s character in a brief amount of time. Brittle comedy lines done in voiceover serve to fill in some missing blanks and clue us in to Guttman while the sex scenes unfold, so this manages to kill two birds with one stone. Creative editing also provides an intriguing story sequence with some really descriptive facial photography and reaction shots. Silvera plays his character raggedly intense, and Buck Adams adds a nice nasty edge as the nite club owner. Good sex and an excellent show.
