David Stanley, who has proven repeatedly to be one of the strongest and most inventive storytellers to ever grace Pornland (haven't seen his 2005 Best Screenplay and Best Director – Video winner Pretty Girl? You don't know what you're missing) may just have pulled off his greatest feat yet with 1000 Words, a silent – you read that right, silent – movie with easily the most stirring and rapturous narrative we've witnessed in porn this year – or really, since Pretty Girl, as best we can recall.
The story is simple: Carmen Hart and Randy Spears are passing strangers who admire each other from afar, but keep getting thwarted in their attempts to connect. Their respective lovers become less and less desirable to them as they continue crossing paths and pining secretly for one another. When they finally do come together – through calamitous fate – the meeting is breathtaking and electric.
What about the sex, you ask? Is it breathtaking and electric, too? Why yes, for the most part, it absolutely is. There's a reason Roxy Jezel was just made a ClubJenna girl, and it's on display here, plus you've got the exotic Gianna Lynn spicing up the threeway with Hart and Eric Masterson, and of course there's that magical consummation of Spears and Hart's pent-up attraction.
Scored with swooning Parisian accordion melodies and crafted in the style of an early-day film classic, even to the extent of putting the story sequences in black and white, 1000 Words is moviemaking in its purest form, and an absolute triumph both erotically and cinematically. And those are all the Words we have to say about that.
