“Towelhead” (2008)

(a.k.a “Nothing is Private”)
This is a very wrong flick (in a negative way) for many reasons – it has scenes of a minor getting raped by an adult, sexually assaulted by an adult, getting duped by horny individuals for their own sexual gratification (pube shaving, masturbation, tits kneading), physical abuse by an adult and also a semi-incestuous part. Though this may sound totally like a Japanese fetish porn, the flick bares no gonads nor funbags (which kind of nulls the idea of it being a porn)

The story is about a girl of middle eastern descent dealing with her puberty and her seemingly uncontrollable libido, which is taken advantage of by basically almost every guy she happens to meet – her mom’s boyfriend, her classmate and her pedophiliac neighbor. Revolves just around a neighborhood and a couple of houses, and with plenty of dull drama.

One can tell that this is a very low budget flick – the acting was very poor (some underacting, and some overacting), the script was lame and the plots didn’t connect. I guess it was intended to be emotionally engaging and shit, but it clearly didn’t work too well. This flick probably would appeal some semi retarded overly emotional middle aged authoritarian housewives, but it was simply too dull, stupid and preposterous for me. I finished this in almost a dozen sessions, because I can’t make myself sit through the flick for more than 10 minutes each time. (I finished it because I thought the ending would be good… but it flopped big time)

1/10
