A pioneer of sexploitation cinema, American film director and screenwriter Joseph W. Sarno (1921-2010) was dubbed the “Chekov of Softcore” and prolific career spans the evolution of the genre. Film Movement Classics has partnered with Film Media and Something Weird to release new HD restorations of two Sarno classics on Blu-ray for the very first time as the second installment in the Joseph W. Sarno Retrospect Series. The films are the 1968 entries All The Sins of Sodom and Vibrations.

All The Sins of Sodom (1968)

Shot back-to-back with Vibrations in 1968, All the Sins of Sodom finds the sexploitation auteur is at the top of his game in a penetrating study of ambition, romance and lust set inside the world of fashion photography.  Encouraged by his agent, Henning, a struggling New York City photographer, begins a daring portfolio of his model, Leslie.  But all too soon, jealousies erupt when another model vies for his camera and bed in this elegantly filmed time capsule of late ’60s New York.

In Vibrations, aspiring writer Barbara moves to Manhattan to jump-start her career and sex life, but ends up typing manuscripts.  Alone at night, she listens to the sound of her sexy neighbor as she entertains herself and her friends with the aid of her vibrator.  When her extroverted sister, Julie, comes to town, Barbara is forced to confront her repressed sexual desires.

Both the Blu-ray and DVD editions of the cult films contain the following specially-produced bonuses:

  • Interview with Joseph Sarno
  • Commentary by Film Historian Tim Lucas and Joe’s wife, Peggy Steffans-Sarno
  • Booklet featuring liner notes from Tim Lucas
