Synopsis: A woman travels through a surreal series of sexual
This is one of those reviews that's very hard to write. On the one
hand, this title is one of the slickest, most visually striking
title we've ever laid eyes upon; on the other it's a work from
which we advise 99% of ALL of you to steer clear. It's sex of
the harshest variety, with anal penetration of one various sort
or another in every scene, spitting, beating, dp, fisting, and
just about every other variety of sexual deviancy Director
Michael Ninn's mind can dream up. It was enough make us cringe
through virtually each and every frame, sometimes pausing to
catch our collective breaths as it inched along through it's
2-plus hours running time. By the time we finished "Catherine,"
we were exhausted and amazed to have found a film that makes
look like a Candida Royale effort.
The perplexing fact that we
endured this sexual assault on our senses and then proceeded to fuck each
other's brains out only made our dilemma more difficult; that is, how could
we possibly recommend something so bizarre and (for lack of a better term)
hardcore that simultaneously repulsed and titillated our libidos.
Surely, most couples who occupy our Bible belt demographic would find such a
film sickening at best, on the phone to their local watchdog group and
congressman at worst, torches carried down the street to Director Ninn's
house for a good old-fashioned burning at the stake. Incidentally, we
happened to meet the two leads in person at the 2006 AVN Show in Las Vegas
(see picture at right as proof), who are an actual couple who've been
together for years, and they vouch for their mutual enjoyment of every
minute on screen.
Yes, readers, this is one
challenging bit of celluloid. That said, we'll take liberties with the words
of a fellow adult DVD reviewer to summarize the plot and action of Catherine
Roger T. Pipe, at IAFD
- Audrey Hollander
and Otto Bauer play the leads in this epic. As the movie opens with
Catherine on snow covered steps being chastised by Otto. His accusations
have to do with her wicked fantasies and she does nothing at all to dissuade
him. She spreads her legs and gets her fingers working between her pale
thighs. Her tight little ass takes four fingers as he really works her over.
She wraps her bright red lips around his cock and even the glossy look and
echo-chamber sound can’t slow down the rough throat fucking he gives her.
The brutality is well covered, but we don’t really get a chance to see how
beautiful Audrey is and how well she can suck cock. Moving quickly to anal,
Otto bends her over and takes control of that ass. (Though come on, after
four fingers his dick isn’t exactly going to do a lot of damage.) He
finishes her off with a hot on the face.
Images bombard us for
several minutes as present-day Audrey is haunted by visions from the past.
She and Otto watch as Bruno Sx punishes a “whore” played by Valentina
Velasques. He spits on her pussy and slaps her thighs. With Audrey there to
help, they force her head down around his cock. The brutality leads into a
hard sex scene that is beautifully shot. We have become somewhat accustomed
to this odd mix of nasty action with exceptional quality thanks to Ninn’s
recent work, but it is still a rare experience. The RCA is outstanding and
the more he slaps her clit, the harder Valentina fucks him back. There is
some really good anal action here as Valentina gets what she “deserves”
right up to a big shot on her face.
Audrey’s odd odyssey
continues as she teams with Nikki Blonde and Adriana Rouso for a really
outstanding three-way. The girls play with each other, but break out a big
black strap on when Audrey gets pulled into the mix. They fuck her tight ass
with long hard strokes. In a movie this good I am shocked to find that I
really just want the lesbian action to continue.
As the dreams (or
fantasies) continue things get lighter. Beautiful Victoria Swinger lifts her
heavy dress and gives Mike Foster access to what she has hidden underneath.
There is some beautifully lit footage as she works her pretty lips up and
down his hard cock. The sex here is not as rough as most of what we have
seen so far, but it isn’t soft either. It’s a solid scene with some great
cowgirl as she bounces to take every inch of his dick. I love the way this
scene looks and the mix between eye candy and heat is perfect.
The climactic scene
features Otto punishing Audrey for her sins. He brings in Bruno and Mike to
do the deed. They give her some very rough oral sex, shoving her head back
and forth and trying to split her head open with their hard rods. Moving
right from blowjobs to DP, they slam her as hard as they can while Otto
hovers around berating her verbally. The creepy factor is so high that it
almost distracts us from the great action. With three guys now around her
Audrey gets plugged n every hole, double stuffed in the ass and finally
covered in hot sticky cream.
To be sure, Mr. Pipe uses
more colorful descriptions than we might choose, but the essence is
unmistakably there; "Catherine" is composed of exactly the kind of action he
details. And, as we've stated previously, you'd be wise to stay away from
this title if any or all of these elements might turn your romantic evening
into a lifetime of celibacy or have your partner on the phone to his/her
lawyer with your perverted evening as evidence in your divorce proceedings.
In our case, we did have a difficult time digesting all 120 minutes, but we
were definitely both riveted to the action and turned on beyond belief when
the credits rolled.
In summation, we decided to
carry this title in our
online store despite the fact we DISCOURAGE anyone short of porn
watching addicts (or twisted couples determined to push some boundaries)
from buying or renting this title. You have been warned! If, however, you're
looking for something beyond the ordinary and do not mind some disturbing
elements with your porn, look no further than this landmark title.
