The curated portion of feature films in the New Orleans Film Festival includes several lurid entries. Among them is About Cherry, about a young woman who gets into fetish modeling and porn, Bettie Page Reveals All, a biopic narrated by Page herself, and Starlet, another film about a young woman in the porn business. The Bettie Page documentary is excellent. The best of the features I was able to preview is Compliance, a psychological thriller about fear and abuse of authority. It and About Cherry are reviewed here. It's also based on an actual event, which the film reveals was one of many such events.
More trailers after the jump.
