OK sequel with cryptic ending
12 January 2016 | by lor_See all my reviews

James Avalon extends his "Red Vibe Diaries" series with this well-made followup, though it suffers from the pretentious streak of his work at this time. In the BTS short subject he indicates his fondness for Fellini and his serious approach to filmmaking, so I have to give him credit for an earnest effort.

Stacy Valentine returns as the frustrated, filthy-rich housewife who sits in her bathtub alternately masturbating with her pet vibrator or writing her purple prose journal. She's still a prostitute of the afternoon at Laura Palmer's high-toned, rigged with CCTV brothel.

Chief protagonist is returning series regular Vince Vouyer, misspelled in the credits as the more obvious Voyeur. His infatuation with Stacy knows no bounds and sets in motion a rather dark, doomed narrative.

Avalon's sex scenes are stylish and shooting his trilogy on 35mm has helped prolong its shelf life. The violent ending is well-staged but a major cheat. Stacy reveals she imagined it all, perfectly reasonable in that we have no guarantee of the veracity of what she's writing in her diary (which we see enacted on screen). Yet for Part 3 set 2 years after Avalon chose to revise once again and insist that what happened in Part 2 here really happened after all.

Tony Tedeschi's role as the husband is downplayed, and in fact he is only mentioned but not shown at all in Part 3.
