BWW DVD Review: Severin Film's Amazing THAT'S SEXPLOITATION!
by Chris Gibson - Jun 2, 2016

In the grand tradition of MGM's classic That's Entertainment! (parts 1&2) comes the latest release from Severin Films called That's Sexploitation!, which takes us on a journey from silent cinema up to the 1970's when hardcore XXX films rendered them passe. It's a mind-bending excursion into over 2 hours of clips culled mostly from co-producer (the late, great) Mike Vraney's collection, which you can find on the internet under the site name of Something Weird Video. These films, some of which may seem misogynistic and exploitative (duh), are actually so cartoonish that they shouldn't be taken seriously except as examples of a forgotten age. Honestly, while there's certainly some shock value to be had here, you'll probably find yourself laughing hysterically at the more inane things that have been captured. At this point, Quentin Tarantino and his many imitators have picked the bones of grindhouse cinema clean, and to the extent that a lot what you see here is actually quite tame in comparison. The stuff that isn't is so over the top that your jaw will drop in astonishment. It's all here: nudie-cuties, filmed burlesque shows, the "roughies", exotic dancers, acid era body painting, etc. This is definitely on the must-see list of all psychotronic film junkies, and should be required viewing for everyone else.

BWW Review: Entertaining Comedy BREATH OF SPRING Opens New Season at Theatre 40
by Shari Barrett - Jul 25, 2016

Production teams at Theatre 40 expertly present mid-20th Century British comedy better than almost any other theater in town. So it was no surprise to find out the group decided to present the riotous BREATH OF SPRING by Peter Coke to open their 51st season, directed by Bruce Gray and produced by David Hunt Stafford, the dynamic duo production team who have brought so many great shows to their stage. Written in 1958, BREATH OF SPRING has nothing to do with the season. In fact, it is a type of silver mink highly prized among fur aficionados. And while we may have differing opinions about wearing fur, there is no doubt in the mid-20th Century that lovely fur coats, stoles and jackets were often worn not only to keep warm but to show the wearer had "made it" into high society.
