Esotika Erotika Psikotika

Yesterday was no fluke - you'll see a lot more Italian 2-sheets on the blog, because I recently completed a mammoth photography project! (Next up are my Japanese posters...) Continuing in style, we have three erotic productions: Fernando Di Leo's amazing To Be Twenty, which in its original uncut version counts as one of the most shocking movies ever made; the original Black Emanuelle, with a career-defining performance by Laura Gemser; and one of the best Italian titles ever, for Radley Metzger's The Lickerish Quartet (a fantastic title in itself!)

Incidentally, Esotika Erotika Psicotika is also the title of a great book in the Diva Archives series from our friends at Glittering Images chronicling "sexual revolution and transgressive eroticism in Italian popular publications and cinema, from 1964 to 1973". Highly recommended - get it from the Glittering Images Web Site!
