When I was a horny teenager during the 1970s, most of the XXX-rated movies I saw back then were grim, clumsy, so-dark-you-could-barely-see anatomy lessons. It was the same actors fucking the same way in the same bed in the same room. But Girls Lie, the newest film by the talented Eon McKai, ain't your Granddaddy's porno. No, I won't call it a masterpiece. But it's a loud, nasty, tattooed, in-your-face punk rocker of a movie that further erases the line dividing erotica from legitimate Hollywood films. For one thing, the cinematography in McKai's Girls Lie is absolutely gorgeous. Imagine a MTV video pumped up on Tina, cheap beer, cigarettes, and Human Growth Hormone. The cast is exceptional. Charlotte Stokely, Dana DeArmond and Pixie Pearl, the stars of Girls Lie, are a breath of fresh sensuality. They're young, enthusiastic, beautiful, and genuine. O.K., the erotic menu's pretty simple. If you want variety in your pornography, you're going to be very disappointed. There's no orgies, no threesomes, no bisexuality or lesbian couplings. It's entirely one-on-one heterosexual intercourse. But McKai brings out the best in his actors, and they fuck with a feral intensity. Unfortunately, because everything else in Girls Lie is so good, it's too bad the script is awful. There's no plot, the dialogue is banal and even though the title alludes to the three women lying to their boyfriends, you can't figure out why. It doesn't even come close to being a mediocre Red Shoes Diary episode. Still, because you're so mesmerized by McKai's sorcery as a director, you don't notice the Katrina-sized holes in the narrative until it's over. So, judging it on those merits, I think it's successful. If you don't need no stinkin' story, it works. And for everybody else with higher expectations, Girls Lie is a bright promise of better films to come.
