Surrender, Dorothy...
14 August 2011 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

Dorothy Stratten is a haughty, self-absorbed girl who spends recklessly and goes to discotheques in the middle of the day. She's going to turn 18 in a few months...at that time she will accede authority in her late father's financial empire, much to the chagrin of her uncle(who is currently in-charge). He concedes that the only way to avoid her interference in the family business is to have her drugged and taken prisoner to a covert(and very pricey) corrective obedience-training facility, overseen by a hatchet-faced lesbian and her deranged lackeys. Gradual disempowerment through physical, sexual, and psychological torment proves successful. The girl's spirit is broken, rendering her a docile and obedient subordinate(with a "thing" for the "ladies").

Ms. Stratten was a stellar beauty, and that beauty is showcased here in a multitude of ways...she appears donned in lingerie, corsets, slinky dresses, and, of course, nude. It shouldn't surprise that her presence is the cynosure attraction of AUTUMN BORN, and that the production itself is typically sub-par. This is not to say it's a BAD film, just that it's traveling noticeably light in several departments. And, as is often the case with erotic cinema, it's pitched with that recherché, pseudo-European sfumato-softness...presumably an attempt at concealing the film's sleazy soft-porn bedrock beneath a gauzy layer of specious artful intentions.

Not too bad of its type, actually...and with Dorothy Stratten on board, anything is watchable(for instance...GALAXINA). 4.5/10
