It's Hollywood, the late 1960's, and Belinda Brimhouse (Jacqueline
Guzman Cereceres) has had it with her job as a film editor: Her boss
Arrolls (Mystic Marlow) has pretty much promised her heaven, but now all
she does is cutting together sex reel after sex reel ... and she's not too
happy that Arrolls wants to go hardcore now - so she quits, by way of
hitting Arrolls over the head with a beerbottle.
Belinda has this dream
to leave the skinflick business for good but make a feature film that
still features quite a bit of sex. She has some high expectations for that
one, and some definite visions ... but not much of a script, and her best
friend Frieda (Jenny Savage) isn't too much of a help, being more into the
Hollywood lifestyle (drugs, partying and sex) than actually making a
At first, Belinda tries to actually audition actresses for her
movies, but most of them are not too happy with the way the movie's going
or not up for giving all up in front of the camera, and when one girl goes
further than expected and tries to make out with Belinda, she actually
fires her. So soon Belinda frequents strip clubs for talent, and her movie
more and more gets like a series of nudie vignettes (which of course also
has to do with the fact that she still has no script ready), and soon
enough she falls in with the same producer (Art Roberts) she had hoped to
have left behind when breaking up with Arrolls.
Problem is, Arrolls now
sees Belinda as competition and has put out a contract on her ...
a pure narrative level, 8 Reels of Sewage might not totally
convince, as it falls a few inches short of having an actual story arc -
and that said, the film is nothing short of totally charming, at least for
people like me who are into late 1960's sexploitation cinema, as it's a
lovable collection of little anecdotes from that era, makes many a
reference to (to most of us) long forgotten skin flicks, features a
copious amount of in-jokes, and tries to
recapture the vintage lifestyle of the underbelly of filmmaking. And it's
quite fascinating how successful the film is to bring that long bygone era
to life, not only considering budgetary ramifications. The actors, the
sets, props, costumes all look their part, the musical score has the right
feel to it, and even the above-mentioned narrative looseness fits the era.
said, don't expect too many boobs, there is some nudity in here but not a
lot - and that, too, totally fits the mood of the movie. Now you might
have to love late 1960's grindhouse cinema to like this movie, but if so
you really will!
