Long a staple of Italian theater and vocal music, Marco Filiberti makes an auspicious debut as a feature-film writer/director in this melodrama set against the decadent backdrop of the porn industry. Filiberti plays the tanned, toned, and egotistical Riki, whose name is well-known to the country's gay adult-film connoisseurs. After the death of his aristocratic father, Riki is brought back into contact with his estranged brother Federico (Urbano Barberini), who views his brother's chosen profession with a combination of disdain and curiosity. As the two reconcile their differences, Riki has to come to terms with growing up and taking responsibility, which for him includes the desire to become a father by adopting an orphan. ~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide

Big ego, little intelligence, pretty visuals: great fun by talltale November 5, 2004 - 7:34 AM PST

What if the spirit and sensibility of Radley Metzger were channeled into a gay Italian porn star? If this sounds enticing (and how, for any true movie buff, can it not?), then queue up immediately for ADORED: DIARY OF A PORN STAR. Yes, it's silly, Yes, it's unbelievable. But the movie believes itself and, in the process, mows down most of your misgivings. It crams into its little-over 90 minutes so much fun and skin (no full-frontal, unfortunately), so many bizarre and interesting characters, so much soap, scenery and schmaltz that it enters into that very small pantheon of films that are simultaneously "camp" and bewitching. Director and star Marco Filiberti may turn you off initially with his self-satisfied gaze and smirks, but by the end of the movie, he proves a decent actor and a sweet--if silly--guiding presence for this whole bizarre enterprise.
