"Shameless, Tasteless: Trash Cinema From The Soviet Underground" Review


Synopsis: Discovered in the lower depths of the Ukrainian black market, TROMA proudly presents the infamous works of Soviet sleaze-maestro, Yakov Levi. With casts composed of real-life criminals, prostitutes, and narcotic addicts, this depraved anthology chronicles the misled adventures of degenerate whores, possessed sadomasochists, and murderous undergarments.

Review: When they call it trash cinema in their title they were exactly right on what it is. This dvd consists of 7 short films and one of them has a total of 4 parts. Of the 7 I only liked 3 of them, the 3 i liked were Shameless, Tasteless, and Matroshka Dolls of Doom. Shameless and Tasteless have a connection with each other because they have the same over weight elderly prostitute and one of the 3 boys from Shamless returns in Tasteless, both of those 2 are quite raunchy and have a simular style to that of John Waters. When it comes to Matroshka Dolls of Doom, well it just has this story that is actually entertaining. Now as far as the other shorts on this release, I actually hated them especially the one called Penisella that had 4 different parts that were simply retarded and pointless. Now the upside to this dvd is that you do get plenty of extras but honestly I don't think that could even help save this dvd. Overall I was dissatisfied with this release from Troma and I hope they never release another dvd from this directer again! I give this dvd a 1 out of 5!
