    BAD LUCK BANGING OR LOONY PORN (Radu Jude 2021) - preview

    BAD LUCK BANGING OR LOONY PORN (Radu Jude 2021).

    Preview - full review to come in a few weeks.


    KATIA PASCARIU IN BAD LUCK BANGING OR LOONY PORN

    A provocative and effectively messy Romanian film about the injustice of internet (sex) scandals

    Just watched this, which was in over 40 fests including NYFF. I'm constrained from publishing a full review until the Jan. 22, 2022 wide release date. Provocative, adolescent, earnest, it's a "bad" movie you just want to talk about, and that's good.

    The premise, as I state it in my review (held back for Jan. 22):

    The outset is the biggest provocation, the starting point of all the action: a short but exuberant, joyful, and totally explicit cell-phone-filmed sex tape shot by a married couple with fellatio, anal sex, dirty talk, and a pink fright wig, and a real erection and real penetration. It was shot, in the film's story, that is, by Eugen (Stefan Steel) the partner of Emilia Cilibiu, known as Emi (Katia Pascariu), who happens to teach Romanian history at a quality Bucharest high school. Eugen, we later learn, puts it on a "private" fetish site, which means it rapidly goes onto the internet at large and thence into the startled eyeballs of Emi's school's administrators, faculty, students, and their parents, with immediate dire consequences for Emi.

    Bad Luck Banging or Loojny Porn/Babardeala cu bucluc sau porno balamuc , 106 mins., in Romanian, debuted at Berlin where it won the Golden Bear. It was shown at over 40 international festivals, including the New York Film Festival, and has been released in at least 17 countries. It was Romania's submission for the International Feature Film Oscar, but not among the fifteen finalists. US limited release was Nov. 19, 2021. Wider US release Jan. 22, 2022.Metacritic rating: 75%.
