Green Porno: Not What You Think


You might remember Isabella Rossellini as the nightclub singer Dorothy Vallens in Blue Velvet. Or maybe just as Ingrid Bergman’s daughter. Regardless, she’s just directed her first film. It’s called Green Porno. According to the Sundance Channel’s press kit:

Green Porno is a series of very short films conceived, written, directed by and featuring Isabella Rossellini about the sex life of bugs, insects and various creatures. The films are a comical, but insightful study of the curious ways certain bugs “make love”.

This sounds strange, but it’s so much odder than even the description makes it seem. You can watch the movie on the Sundance Channel’s website. I recommend the Bee video.

Porn may be going in a circus-sex direction these days, but at least this isn’t the kind of stuff we’re offering. I promise we will never buy this movie.

    Alison:
    You have gone too far my dear, i am hiring my VB exterminator.
    i know i teased you about being Cinderella and all,but enough is enough.I did it all in fun and for the loving of the game.
    We make a deal ok lil lady,no bugs other than if they be Bugs Bunny . i love Bugs Bunny and Tweety Bird. but hey you got big dilemna how you gonna make them hardcore. They are legends like dylan and the stones. and it would not feel right for Bugs or tweety doing hardcore,it would be like childhood rape or destroying a childs dream.
    been real long i know
    seriously i do enjoy writing into blogs and the comments from you and Rope and Matt.
    so anyhow i still enjoy teasing the shit out of you,but no fucking bugs movies you hear,or VB will go broke and lil Alison will be out of a job.

    I knew Isabella Rossellini was a bit crazy, but… wow… that stuff is awesome.

    That Insexts movie actually looks like I’d be pretty fun to watch too. But then again, I don’t mind a bit of high-concept weirdness in my porno every once in a while.

    Ever seen a movie called Cafe Flesh? It’s about a post-apocalyptic world where most of the people suffer from a sickness that prevents them from enjoying human contact. The people not effected by the sickness are rounded up and forced to perform sex acts on stage for the entertainment of those who cannot get off any other way. If that’s not weird enough, each of the sex acts has a weird theme, like one where a guy with a giant pencil for a head fucks a woman on a desk while another woman keeps asking in monotone “Would you like me to take a memo?” Another scene has a guy in a rat suit fucking a housewife while three grown men dressed in neon baby costumes watch from matching high chairs.

    Thanks for not hosting “Insexts”, Alison, if for no other reason than it features Nick “Dropping Loads” Manning. Now, if you guys want to consider Big Wet Asses #10, that would be fine by me.

    Alison – Thank you for the Green Porno links. I viewed all the films and found the presentation most interesting. I had very little knowledge of the subject matter beforehand. Enlightenment is good.

    Hmmm, Isabella Rossellini. Somehow I missed Blue Velvet but when I hear the name I immediately think of the movie “Wild at Heart”. She had a small but memorable role in the film (Laura Dern & Nicolas Cage were the main characters). Remember the scene where Isabella was the would be getaway driver for a bank heist gone terribly wrong? Her villainous lover Willem Dafoe and a set-up Cage were pulling the robbery and Dafoe blows his own head off with the shotgun he intended to assassinate Cage with. Rossellini flees the scene and Cage winds up back in jail.

    HotScooter – Glad to have you back. No bug movies, promise :)

    Strangepork – I only saw a few minutes of Insexts and I thought it was kind of funny. I used to have a VHS tape of Cafe Flesh years ago. I think I lost it the last time I moved, but it was a really entertaining movie. Speaking of strange pornos, have you ever seen Let My Puppets Come?

    friedrich – That’s a popular request. It’s definitely on the list of things we’re trying to get.

    rope – I did see Wild at Heart, but my memory is a bit hazy. Of all of David Lynch’s movies, it really wasn’t my favorite.

    The bees were the best but they were all pretty humorous. Thanks for the link.
