In the Flesh at Anthology Film Archives

Hint Tip: Porno Chic at Anthology Film Archives

In the 1970s, an unusual and now-nonexistent film genre known as 'porno chic' flourished in a handful of New York cinemas. These films were essentially surprisingly well-produced updates of film-noir classics (think Sunset Boulevard), their sexual tension manifested so as to become porn. Actors of the X-rated sort donned raincoats, lurked in the shadows, delivered minimal lines, and otherwise did the things porn stars do. Porn noir or roughies, these films were also called.

Anthology Film Archives has done the work no one else will do and located four of these gems — which, we might add, have excellent posters. They're slated to screen at the East Village institution, as part of its In the Flesh series, from clean 35mm prints, presented by special guests who'll provide charmingly lascivious details from behind-the-scenes.
