Some creators of "adult movies" weigh their productions down with elaborate plots and long stretches of dialog. I believe they think this will lend their work an air of sophistication and intellectual complexity. The result is usually the diametric opposite. One of the things I most admire about SexArt's approach to erotic cinema is that the set-ups are smart, short, and to-the-point. Dialog is kept to a minimum, and we learn just enough to pique our interest and draw us into the scene.
"Rodeo Drive" actually contains a bit more dialog than the other SexArt titles I've reviewed, but it doesn't amount to more than a few lines, and it's just enough to establish the premise.
The premise itself is both simple and clever. So simple that I will risk becoming a spoiler and outline it. For those looking to experience "Rodeo Drive" without any foreknowledge, stop reading now and go enjoy the film.
A young man walks into a chic jewelry boutique on the fabled shopping street. He pretends to be shopping for an engagement ring and the very blonde, very sexy, and very French shop girl plays along. When the girl, Jessie Volt, agrees to try on the ring for the customer, Logan Pierce, the pretending stops and the real lovemaking begins.
No surprises here — the action unfolds at a natural, unforced pace, with each partner obviously savoring the experience in typical SexArt style. Pierce, who has been dreaming of this encounter for endless months, makes love to Volt with his mouth and fingers at considerable length, earning her vocal and orgasmic gratitude. She takes her sweet time while giving Logan a slow, loving suck, but both of them seem aware this is only a prelude to the main attraction.
Again, the pacing and flow of the scene isn't rushed, these two are enjoying every bump, thrust, and grind, taking their time, and building to ever higher peaks of pleasure. A variety of positions are employed, the camera has a knack for being in the right place at the right time, and Volt's uninhibited vocalizing adds to the intensity. Rodeo Drive may be notoriously expensive, but "Rodeo Drive" is well worth the price of admission.
