Dildo Heaven

The legendary exploitation director Doris Wishman got her start in the 1960s, shooting on incredibly low budgets, and the technical errors in her appealingly silly films have drawn comparisons to Edward D. Wood Jr. In this 2002 feature three female roommates pursue romances with their bosses, and when they're all betrayed, they turn to the title device for sexual satisfaction (though there's no full nudity). In terms of conventional narrative, nothing works: the performances are flat, the editing is indifferent, and there's a ridiculous dream sequence of dildos superimposed over a sleeper's bed. But the miscues also fascinate, wildly off in a way that reveals the artifice of commercial product. Wishman once said, “Every film ever made is an exploitation film,” and one voyeurism sequence, with little purpose other than showcasing five bare-chested beauties, clearly and amusingly reveals cinema as just a series of shows. 79 min.
