Lovelace – our review


The dramatic story of the famous ‘Deep Throat’ loses bite on the big screen, but it is interesting.

The story of Linda Boreman, aka Lovelace , and ‘very different from that usually flies over the collective imagination. Diva porn movie, mythical name, that’ Deep Throat ‘that everyone knows, but few have actually seen it. And which, above all, we tend to overlook the real story. The film of the couple Epstein-Friedman (formerly ‘together to Scream – Allen Ginsberg biopic starring James Franco – and some documentaries about gays in American cinema and the Nazi concentration camps) fits more’ or less in the middle between trying to tell with compassion and to intercept the legend.

Commendable choice and inevitably subject interesting, but perhaps too tacked to the glamor. Especially in the choice of the protagonist. A charming Amanda Seyfried (more ‘innocent to Mamma Mia! that femme fatale In Time) – preferred, for one reason or another, Kate Hudson (perhaps more’ complete) and Olivia Wilde – ultimately too much more ‘bellina and Linda lived less true. Surely the protagonist more ‘in tune with the whole movie, ultimately winking,’ pathetic ‘and too conciliatory.

A good opportunity for the fledgling film distribution Barter, which leads in a movie hall of attractions and potential ‘, and that can’ boast a really good cast. Seyfried apart (perfect innocent as Snow White, as a victim less painful), parade Peter Sarsgaard (a troublesome and slippery Chuck Traynor, the husband and ‘mentor’ Linda), Juno Temple (Patsy, his best friend), Adam Brody ( Harry Reems), Hank Azaria (director Jerry Damiano), Wes Bentley (Larry Marchiano, the second husband), James Franco (in the role of Hugh Hefner after having touched on the role of Traynor), Robert Patrick (his father, John J. Boreman) and especially Sharon Stone (mother Dorothy), unrecognizable and intense.

Unfortunately, however, ‘the vein of other documentary film-investigation is reduced to a backstory at the mention of violence and the more’ dramatic in only a few scenes. At times the outrage grows, with surprise and empathy, but ultimately drag are more ‘Stone Sarsgaard and, worse, that poor Linda, for good. And the final confirmation that appeared every impression when watching, with a strong feeling of having witnessed a product that will be able ‘to continue – quietly and pleasantly – to circulate on television.

Lovelace, released on May 8, 2014, and ‘distributed by Barter Multimedia.
