Pornography: A Thriller
David Kittredge directs this chilling, erotic indie about obsession in the adult film world. Over a decade ago, a gay porn star named Mark Anton left the industry, seemingly vanishing into the ether right as his career was picking up steam. Though everyone had a scandalous theory about why he left, no one sought the truth -- until now. When Michael, a young researcher, comes across the story, he decides to investigate, and quickly spirals into a frightening, supernatural fun house of snuff films, voyeurism, and waking nightmares. ~ Carly Wray, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Despite marvelously moody visuals and a tantalizing setup, Pornography: A Thriller finally puzzles more than it pleases."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Writer-director David Kittredge's spooky, ambitious thriller about the mysterious fate of a gay porn star is equal parts David Lynch, The Fluffer and 8mm."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Miss FlickChick
"Ambitiously layered and almost completely incoherent."
‑ Michelle Orange, Village Voice
"Frustratingly elliptical and slightly convoluted, but unconventionally and intriguingly structured enough to maintain suspense amidst its tangled web of blurred realities."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"Taken independently, these chapters probe the thorny porn star-viewer exchange, but Kittredge can't connect the dots into a worthy climax. In other words: all foreplay, no full release."
‑ S. James Snyder, Time Out New York
"Pornography is more in love with the notion that a thriller could come to life in a porn setting than with what is actually interesting and relevant about its subject matter."
‑ Diego Costa, Slant Magazine
