8½ Women (1999) sounds like an arty porno film--and it (pretty much) is! Yay! After a horny man's wife dies, he turns his country estate into a cunty-estate brothel. There's oodles of nudeness from Toni Collette (in a fully shaved frontal!), Annie Shizuka Inoh, Kirina Mano, Amanda Plummer (getting off bareback and bare-assed on a horse), and Polly Walker. There's also arcane and pretentious pondering. But who cares with more nudity than you can whack your stick to? Naked lovelies wash pigs, appear in kinky hospital braces, in nun's habits, in painterly tableaux. And as with any movie about whores, well, you get what you pay for. This one's more than worth the price of admission.
