"The Eroticist" Review

Synopsis: After years of dedicating himself exclusively to the cause of politics, Italian senator Gianni Puppis finds his long-suppressed libido suddenly transforms him into a rampaging sex maniac. When a keen eyed photographer captures the potential future president fondling the posterior of a visiting female dignitary, a Dominican monk attempts to cure the politician with a relaxing retreat to a countryside nunnery. Once in the company of twenty-one stunning sisters, however, the senator quickly discovers that the word of God holds little sway over the urges of man.

Review: When it comes to Lucio Fulci I have only delve into his horror films so going into this film I was quite anxious to see how he would do at a comedy film. After viewing this film I have to say that Fulci has once again impressed me with this film that has a satirical look at religion and at the same time puts an erotic twist to the possession film genre. When it comes to the characters I really like our lead character who is the politician with a Clark Kent look to him that seems to get over whelmed everytime he sees a woman's ass and the rest of the cast of characters are great but don't stick out to me quite as much as the lead. This film stays at a pretty decent pace for the most part but does kinda drag at times like a typical Fulci film. One of the best films in the film to me is when our lead character starts having this crazy dream where he is grabbing all these asses and while these people watch him and then next thing you know it the dream is done and he is getting frisky with the priest trying to help him over come his problem. Overall this is a great film that only someone like Fulci could do and get away with. I must warn you that if you are sensitive when it comes to religion I would stay away from this film but if your not then sit back and enjoy this one! I give this one a 4 out of 5!
