Vibrations / Fluctuations / Submission (1969-1970)

Director: Joseph Sarno
    see all cast/crew...
Rating: Not Rated
Studio: Image
Running Time: 218 min.

Good vibrations go nasty when sex-happy Julia moves in with her uptight young sister and becomes irresistibly drawn to a next-door storage room where mistress Georgia holds nightly orgies with an oddball sex cult. Armed with a giant joy buzzer, Georgia likes to turn herself on, turn her friends on and, ultimately, turn Julia and her sister on: "I specialize in pleasure. Pleasure so intense it's akin to torment .. exquisite torment ..." An offbeat, psychologically twisted skinflick from the always excellent Joe Sarno! Plus: The kink-a-thon continues with Fluctuations, a bizarre don't-even-try-to-make-sense-of-it bombardment of sexual imagery that plays like stream of consciousness from a degenerate: threesomes, foursomes, lesbians, bondage, hair-whipping (!) and, believe it or not, even kung fu. Avant-guarde masterpiece or pure gutter trash? Perhaps both ... And: A psycho sex-fiend keeps his infantile girlfriend Vicky (Jennifer Welles) in Submission with candy bars, toys and, yes, hot wax. But when they plan on killing a wealthy lesbian, Vicky discovers she likes a woman's touch and plans a nasty surprise for her boneheaded boyfriend! It's a triple bill of sexploitation skin and sin mixing Joe Sarno sophistication with sleaze and schlock, exactly as they played Times Square back in 1970!

Hippie, hippie shake by GGoodsell December 25, 2005 - 8:41 AM PST

What better way to recall the vibrantly psychedelic Sixties than through a black-and-white skin flick filmed in the cold water tenements of Greenwich Village? FLUCTUATIONS is either an attempt at experimental cinema or the director was on heavier drugs than the audience. Groovy guys and gals attempt various sexual acts and usually fail, taking on the appearance of randomly edited stag footage. Scenes include two fat guys practicing karate in a living room and a girl lashing the backsides of three naked hipsters with her long hair. What makes this ditty is the audio segment, comprised entirely of obscene phone calls that are anything but erotic. VIBRATIONS and SUBMISSION appear to be run of the mill monochrome sex films, in spite of the usually interesting presence of director Joe Sarno who lensed the former.
