Storyline

Agalmatophilia (pronounced A-GAL-MATTO-PHILIA, is a paraphilia involving sexual attraction to a statue, doll, mannequin) is the story of Guy Talbot, an isolated workaholic who seeks a secretary to help manage his life and business. He hires his first applicant, Iesha Stayput, who oddly enough appears to be a living, breathing mannequin. She aides him in business affairs, slowly but surely, but her professionalism quickly becomes secondary to Guy's ulterior motives - Complicating matters is his vivacious client, Veronique, who swoons over Guy, perhaps as a curiously, frustrated about his lack of interest in her and obvious growing obsession with his new co-worker, who may or may not be little more than a twisted fantasy, forced into fruition. Can Guy find happiness with a moving, speaking mannequin, or will he finally fall for Veronique, who may have an odd obsession of her own? Written by anonymous

Fiberglass Art Becomes Film Art, by mistake or on purpose?
14 July 2019 | by FilmArt7See all my reviews

What seems like one of Jared's exploitation films is actually a touching story of love between an object and a man. Of course, the love story is just in the hero's mind, or is it? Is the man just seeing something that others can't, or won't. A numbers guy, original in itself, falls in love with a mannequin. The film is shot in an art deco style, black and white, with a wonderfully tangy punk soundtrack. I won't forget Brittany Ballantyne, who is listed as first director and writer. Her character is well done, and she has two memorable scenes with a lamp, her lover. Just watching her is a treat, but isn't that the point? Reality vs Fiberglass. I had read the Cinematic Equation a few years ago, a great book about Mr. Masters' film career. But, I think Mr. Masters' is limiting himself to small films with a handheld camera. Although he is prolific in his film production, it seems that he has so much more to offer the audience in his films, with just a little more due diligence. I am waiting for Agalmatophilia 2: Acrylic Love. Or maybe, Agalmatophilia: The Musical. His early screenplays did not garner much support in Hollywood, so he made his own films. But lighting is preparing to strike, a chance of a lifetime, he must keep it all together!
