An Alternative Take on Alice

A very enjoyable film with a unique atmosphere and a great take on the Alice in Wonderland story. The sex is hot, although the scenes sometimes have some editing issues. I can recommend this film for the great performances and a fun storyline, although some may find the loud music annoying.

extremely useful review
Although distributed by Vivid in the US, this movie was actually made by Miss Lucifer Productions. It was directed by Lew Xypher.

Cast: Sasha Grey, Andy San Dimas, Dirty Fred, Keni Styles, Ron Jeremy,Alan Stafford, Kagney Linn Karter, Tommy Gunn, Billy Glide, Phoenix Marie, Mackenzee Pierce, Jesse Capelli, Alyssa Reece, Kristina Rose, Juelz Ventura, Sadie West, Chris Johnson, Danny Mountain, Chayse Evans


This film is a version of Alice in Wonderland in which the main character (Malice, in this case) appears to be a patient at a mental hospital who escapes into the California desert (with the help of Rabbit, of course!) and has appropriately surreal adventures while being pursued by the cartoonish security guard Jabbowski who wants nothing more to please his boss, Queenie. The movie has a unique look, in part due to its wonderful costumes, sets, and lighting, but also because it was actually filmed on 35 mm film, which is quite uncommon today, especially in porn.

The story seems somewhat incoherent at first, but after the first few scenes it settles down and you figure out what’s going on. All of the characters have names which are twisted versions of names from the Alice books, but the characters don't really resemble the originals in most cases. The story isn’t the greatest, but it does a good job of holding the film together. In particular, it provides good reasons for the characters to be having sex (aside from the somewhat random first scene) which I like in plot-based porn.

Be warned that there is loud music throughout most of this movie. The sex scenes, in particular, tend to be drowned out by the music. In a few scenes you can actually hear the performers, but in others you can’t hear anything but the music. This was my main source of disappointment with the movie; I prefer music to be quieter (or fade out completely) in sex scenes so I can hear the sex. My only other complaint is the choppy style of editing used for several of the sex scenes. It can be very distracting, although it does fit the overall style of the movie quite well. (I do wish alternative edits of the affected scenes, particularly scene 3, could have been included on the disc.)


Extras

• Behind the Scenes by Keni Styles
An hour-long look at the making of the film. It covers many aspects of making the film, as well as a certain amount of goofing off by the performers. It's not the best behind-the-scenes segment I've seen, but it's enjoyable enough.

• Play Movie Adult Only
This option plays only the sex scenes, leaving out all of the plot. This version of the movie is about 48 minutes long.

• Play Movie Story Only
This option plays only the plot, leaving out all the sex. (About 50 minutes.)

• Ted and Todd’s Rushes Filmed by Sasha
This is a ten minute alternate version of scene 7, as filmed by Sasha Grey on a camcorder (giving it a different look than the film version).

• Pictures Production
This is a slideshow of photos without nudity.

• Pictures Adult
This is a slideshow of photos featuring nudity.

• Info
This option provides information about the music as well as URLs for Miss Lucifer and Vivid.


Packaging

This DVD isn't packaged in a normal DVD case. Instead it's contained inside a book which features production stills, storyboards, and some hot photos of the cast. The whole package is very polished and is very creative.
Experience
Scene 1: Andy San Dimas, Chayse Evans, Chris Johnson, and Danny Mountain.
The two guys are wearing mouse ears in this strange scene which takes place in a morgue. This scene doesn’t seem to make a whole lot of sense, but it’s fun to watch. These guys have huge cocks, and the women are really into them.


Scene 2: Kagney Linn Karter and Alan Stafford
They’re having sex in the back of a station wagon, while we (and Malice) watch through the windows of the car. The angle is awkward and our view is limited, but it works surprisingly well in the context of the film.


Scene 3: Sasha Grey and Keni Styles
These two are incredibly hot together in what is one of the more straightforward scenes in the film. My only two complaints are that the music doesn’t allow us to hear much the performers and that the choppy editing is distracting. The quick cuts do fit the feel of this scene (and the fast music) so it works well thematically, but I would have loved to have an alternative edit available in order to more fully enjoy watching these two fuck. A more straightforward edit of this scene could have been amazing.


Scene 4: Mackenzee Pierce and Jesse Capelli
A lesbian scene with toys! I always enjoy seeing toys in a lesbian scene, and this is no exception. It starts out with some erotic dancing, but soon enough they pull out a glass dildo and have some real fun. Unlike the previous scenes, the editing in this one wasn't annoyingly choppy. A very nice scene overall, although somewhat on the short side, it’s spoiled only by the music which doesn't allow us to hear the performers at all.


Scene 5: Sasha Grey, Alyssa Reece, and Kristina Rose
A very hot lesbian three-way with dildos in harnesses! At one Sasha Grey is simultaneously giving and receiving, which is pretty hot. Sasha is fucking Alyssa with her strap-on while Kristina fucks Sasha from behind. The scene is well edited and the music isn't too loud either, which was a nice change from the other scenes.


Scene 6: Juelz Ventura, Sadie West, and Keni Styles
This scene is intense, with Keni Styles fucking these women hard. Everyone's really into the action here, making it very exciting. My only complaints are that the pink lighting is a bit too intense and that there are a few instances of choppy editing; overall the scene is a lot of fun.


Scene 7: Phoenix Marie, Tommy Gunn, and Billy Glide
Sasha Grey ends up with a group of porn performers. While Sasha Grey is technically in this scene, she's relegated to the role of videographer here, as she's handed a camcorder and told to film the other three having sex. (The video she shoots on the camcorder is used in one of the bonus features.) Overall the scene feels much more like a typical porn scene, which is fitting given the setup. The three performers give a very enthusiastic performance, with particular emphasis on fellatio and anal penetration. It's a hot scene, although some may object to the somewhat out-of-place music used here. (But this choice of music may just be a commentary on the use of music in typical porn.)
