VENICE, CA – As police nationwide brace for unrest following the upcoming decision on whether or not to charge an officer in the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO, director B. Skow is courting his own new controversy.
Nearly three weeks ago he released his latest feature, Control, amidst an uproar of his move The Gardener. While critics were busy freaking out over The Gardener, a movie that will be considered by some to be even more controversial might have slipped by. Control touches on race issues and looks at modern-day slavery, which has been a sensitive topic for years.
Not unlike the situation in Missouri, Skow’s movie is a psychological thriller that builds tension until there is an explosion of intense hardcore performances. It’s all about control. The reviews haven’t started rolling in yet, but if the responses to his recent releases are any indication, some will be thrilled and some others might be afraid – very afraid.
“I know some of my movies can be a little intense for some people,” Skow said. “I love a simple gonzo porno as much as anyone, but sometimes I think we need to take things to the dark corners and see what’s going on there. Not everyone wants to go there, but for those who are willing, it can be a viewing experience you’ll never forget.”
The movie stars Skin Diamond, Claire Robbins, Darla Crane, Scott Lyons, Alec Knight and Kurt Lockwood.
His next release will be American Nannies, a hardcore gonzo title with what he calls “a ridiculous nanny story.”
American Nannies features an all-star cast of Dakota Skye, who is on the cover, Daisy Haze, Alexis Adams and Carter Cruise. With Steve Holmes, Mick blue, Ramon Nomar and Toni Ribas. Both Carter and Dakota do anal in the movie. The trailers will be rolling out this week.
Last week Skow raked in 33 noms for the 2015 XBIZ Awards.
