That's La Morte: Joe D'Amato and the Sadean Art of Love

Xavier Mendik

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNChapter

Abstract

Expanding on recent work in gender, cultural, and audience-based studies, Peep Shows: Cult Film and the Cine-Erotic contains 21 articles which examine the global traditions of cult erotica, explaining key patterns, paradigms, and performers from the world of cult celluloid sexuality. Peep Shows includes profiles of porn performers and icons such as Ron Jeremy, Betty Page, Catherine Breillat, and Joe D’Amato. Essays also provides case studies of contemporary porn parodies, lesbian erotica, Japanese Pink porn cinema, Café Flesh, the Seduction cinema label, the dominatrix in erotic cinema, female porn viewers, burlesque cinema programming, and porno chic soundtracks. The volume features exclusive interviews with erotic performers Seka, Buck Angel, Misty Mundae, Christina ‘Thriller’ Lindberg, and the prolific porn producer, Michael L. Raso. As well as being editor, I also completed the chapter ‘That’s La Morte: Joe D’Amato and the Sadean Art of love' (pp95-109). This chapter considers Italian director Joe D’Amato’s erotica via the subversive sexual and aesthetic strategies of De Sade, arguing that his films disrupt masculine and heteronormative hierarchies.
