The Mirror has two Faces and one giant Pe…
23 February 2007 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

This psychedelic 70's porn movie is stylish and oddly compelling, but still I can't bring myself to be as enthusiast as my fellow reviewers around here. Maybe I just anticipated a little more horror-elements or maybe I got a too upset because director Jonas Middleton presents a beautiful package but can't really hide the fact that there's very little in it. "Through the Looking Glass" is definitely the most ambitious porno movie of the overall rancid 70's offer, as it introduces a high social class family of three, living in a secluded mansion with a house staff. It seems like Catherine has it all made, including youthful beauty and wealth, but sexually speaking she's an extremely frustrated and unsatisfied woman. During her long and lonely days (and nights) alone in the house, Catherine goes to the attic to masturbate in front of the ancient mirror that reminds her of the childhood years with her father. Whether imaginary or supernaturally, the mirror 'sucks' Catherine into a dreamy dimension where she encounters the weirdest and most perverted sexual situations. There aren't any taboos on the other side of the possessed mirror, as Catherine descents in a world of lesbian sex, outrageous Roman-like orgies and even incestuous reunions with her horny father. As the title implies, this film is indeed an adult variation on the world famous story "Alice in Wonderland", but not nearly as demented or extreme as I had hoped. Sure Middleton hints at all the controversial themes, but there are never any genuinely shocking images on screen. The film does, however, feature some dared camera-work and several ingenious shots, like for example extreme close ups of female genitalia and even a journey into the lower body of the main starlet. Although elegantly photographed, the hardcore scenes quickly get tedious and, sadly enough, Catherine Burgess is the ONLY lady attractive enough to sexually arouse the male viewers. The other women look very random and their emotionless performances are a huge turn-off. The music is fantastic alas underused.
