Title: Waves of Lust / Ondata di piacere (Ruggero Deodato, 1975)
Post by: Gary B. on 14 Nov 2010 - 19:19
I didn't see a thread for this yet, so here we go!  After watching the excellent Camera Obscura disc of TERROR EXPRESS I had the urge to re-watch this film, also starring Silvia Dionisio, to satiate my urge for more Italian sleaze.  Gotta love the opening theme song!

Still haven't seen this. Might just bump it up my 'to watch' pile and check it out this week.

I've always liked the Italian poster art for this one.

Ooh I really liked that one!
I think it qualifies as a "suspense giallo".

Yes, hard to categorize!  It's like a suspense/dark comedy/exploitation hybrid?  Really much better than I remembered.  The Raro DVD looks really good even though it's non-anamorphic.

I've been meaning to do a composite.  The bits of footage from the English version on the Raro disc actually do not encompass the entire sequences in some cases.

Loved this one. Need to see it again soon.

A composite would be interesting

Great opening theme, indeed! I was always hesitant about getting this film as I thought it was a straightforward erotic film. "Suspense giallo" seems a lot better suited to my tastes. Is the documentary on the Raro disc interesting?

What's different/missing from the Raro DVD?

I asked Raro if there was likely to be a Blu-Ray somewhere down the line and they said, "No BR in the future.Sorry!".

Just in case anyone is sitting on the fence about buying it because of the prospect of one at some point.

I haven't received my copies yet but, according to DVD Verdict (http://www.dvdverdict.com/reviews/waveslust.php) "there's an illustrated booklet with a great, comprehensive essay by Eric Cotenas of Cineventures Blogspot and DVD Beaver."
