Trailer for the Documentary EXXXIT: LIFE AFTER PORN

by     Posted 4 years, 195 days ago

When you stop to think about it, porn is a fascinating subject.  Even going back thousands of years, we can see pornographic images on ancient artifacts.  Of course, then you have to stop and ponder if people were jerking off to porn pottery.  But it’s always to serve a practical purpose.  Trying to review it as cinema reminds me of Kevin Nealon’s bit about “Interesting…more interesting…really interesting…completely captivating…not so interesting.”  So does this make the performers nothing more than subjects?

That’s why I first found the idea of the documentary Exxxit: Life After Porn a cool approach to the subject.  There’s a line Ron Silver said in a canceled Fox TV series that no one remembers called Skin: Porn is a like a tattoo and there’s no way to get rid of it.  That’s true, but porn stars are people so what do they do when they try to leave the business?  Sadly, this trailer makes the movie look like a cautionary tale followed by redemption via domesticity.  That simplicity doesn’t seem like a very honest look, but maybe the film is more complex and thoughtful than the trailer.

Exxxit: Life After Porn, is a documentary that that not only examines the lives and careers of some of the biggest names in the history of the adult entertainment industry; but what happens to them after they leave the business and try and live the “normal” lives that millions of other Americans enjoy. They hailed from the rural South, steel towns, and the San Fernando Valley. As teenagers, and young adults, none of them thought that porn was in their future. They were artists, baseball players, child prodigies, and even Ivy Leaguers. Now, after their lives in porn; they’re TV stars, bounty hunters, writers, and social activists. What happened in between? And now that they’ve moved on, can they really live a normal life after porn?

EXXXIT is an exploration into the personal side of one of the biggest exports the city of Los Angeles has to offer: the 6 billion dollar a year pornography industry. In their own words, over a dozen men and women who have retired from the porn industry, recount their life and times in the business, and how it’s led to where they are today. Unbiased, and unfiltered and surprisingly, human.
