Summary
One of the great taboo-smashers of the late '60s, directed by Tinto Brass, featuring interracial affairs, anti-Vietnam statements, violence versus sex. ATTRACTION (NEROSUBIANCO) will stun anyone expecting a standard softcore European sex flick as released originally in the US thru Radley Metzger's Audubon Films under the title THE ARTFUL PENETRATION OF BARBARA, then brace yourself for a whirlwind trip with a married woman whose journey through the psychedelic English youth scene awakens her to the carnal offerings of an African-American man, all set to by a searing soundtrack by FREEDOM, a tripped-out group formed from the remnants of PROCAL HARUM. Nearly plotless and often improvised, this undiscovered cult film distinctive tone and editing scheme anticipated everything in the following year releases of Nicolas Roeg PERFORMANCE, Kubrick's A CLOCKWORK ORANGE to our current post-MTV mindsets. Attraction succeeds not just as a series of kick-ass psych-rock clips, but as an abstract, dazzling expression of cinematic art.
