This installment of After Hours Cinema s ever expanding Grindhouse Feature Series celebrates the guys and gals of the Golden Gate grind scene, offering up a tasty three-fer of Pacific flavored porn guaranteed to make you think an earthquake just struck in your pants.
Tucked away in their filmmaker s archive since they were theatrically distributed back in the Sixties and Seventies, Nick Philips skin flicks present a time capsule of their era. His stylishly colorful chronicles of the hippie lifestyle constitute only one of his most important achievements. For Philips used the exact same approach in over two dozen movies and yet still can surprise even the most seasoned viewers of his work with left-field plot developments, sudden technical flourishes, and the most unpredictable finales.
The three pics in this collection are perfect examples of his very special grindgouse formula, and the unpredictability that makes these movies supremely watchable. The featured movie, Wendy s Naughty Night (1973), is a step forward in Philips' style and is the more sex-filled of the two Philip featured herein, but Siv, A Swedish Girl (1971) winds up being his ultimate statement on the free love /hippie phenomenon.
