Summary: The rise and fall (no innuendo) of porno's brief acceptance into the main stream cinema came and went (no innuendo) with Linda Lovelace in the early 70's. The film attempts to show both sides of her abuse and exploitation, together with her quest for fame and adulation, but ultimately leaves the viewer with a nasty taste in the mouth.
Summary: Good, gripping, but very sad and scary in a realistic kind of way. Amanda Seyfried was superb. Explores a part of life of Linda Lovelace and possibly more widely how women fall into abusive relationships and trying to find their way out.
Summary: A bleak but fascinating portrayal of adult film star Linda Lovelace, played superbly by Amanda Seyfried. Doesn't seem much has changed in the porn world, as wheras male porn stars in the 80s used to earn up to $20,000 a picture, with the advent of the internet, they're lucky if they earn $200/300 a pic. I knew that Lovelace was abused by her husband, but had no idea of what he put her through, and that she barely saw any of the proceeds that 'Deep Throat' made.
Summary: This was good overall. It was a bit basic, but a reasonably told story. I'd heard of the infamous film Linda starred in, but I was unaware of what she had gone through and her background etc. Tragic on one side of the tale, but at least a bit uplifting on the other the way she came out the other side - it's a great shame not all people understood and an even greater shame considering Linda's untimely death. Worth a watch.
Summary: A standout performance from Seyfried and alot of cameos. Its filmed in 2 halves one from what we expect and the other from Lindas perspective. No boogie nighs but good. Sharon Stone steals the scenes she is in - oscar?
Summary: I thought that this was going to be a swinging seventies film, but about halfway through it took a surprising dark turn. It was at that point that I became engrossed. It was also interesting to learn more about the real 'Linda Lovelace'. Overall, I enjoyed the film, don't regret buying it and will watch it again.
