Gorgeous fetish fashion and S&M sex distinguish John Stagliano’s two Fashionistas Safado movies. Originally conceived as a single work but divided into sequential four-hour-plus epics, the films are recombined and released as a six-disc set including four standard-definition DVDs and two CDs of original soundtrack music; This box-set features the entire film — now 8 hours 40 minutes, the length of four or five conventional movies — in addition to an elaborate 3-hour DVD of extras and a color booklet of movie photography with the director’s new liner notes. The box sets are among the most lavish in the history of adult entertainment.
Stagliano says, “As pretentious as this sounds, I think of ‘Safado’ as my masterpiece.” Indeed, the movies went on to win nine AVN Awards including Best Director for Stagliano, Best Group Sex Scene and Best Art Direction.
The movie’s rich textures — striking fetish fashion, acrobatic aerialists and dancers from Stagliano’s “Fashionistas” stage show, edgy S&M in European sex clubs and some of the best hard-core carnality ever filmed. The extravagant DVD of extras articulates the director’s mission with three hours of revealing behind-the-scenes footage and commentary by Stagliano, Grey, Siffredi and Lauren.
