Footnotes

For my film portrait of Sasha Grey, I wanted to focus on her expressive and psychological transformation into a cinematic actor, separate from the cues that have associated Sasha with her previous career as a performance artist working within the adult film world. ➡︎

In fact, masturbation, voyeurism and pornography are unusually common themes in films that use Lautner’s houses as locations. In Body Double, a villainous husband enlists a porn actress to pose as his wife and perform a masturbation routine in front of a neo-Corbusian horizontal window. He then “casts” the unsuspecting protagonist as a voyeur in the Chemosphere up the hill. […] De Palma initially enlisted porn star Annette Haven to play the role of the porn star in Body Double. ➡︎
