An adroit expansion on the notion of a "blue" movie, Mark Rappaport's early short BLUE STREAK contrasts the rarified realm of classical composition with an unspoken assortment of words predisposed to human sexuality, all layered over footage of a room filled with naked women and men. At the intersection of high art and low art, Rappaport skillfully dissects the absurdity of such distinctions and brings notions otherwise undiscussed in polite society to the forefront.

The enigmatic Mark Rappaport sets pornography and "smut" of the 70's on its ear with this witty and sardonic presentation. Healthy and youthful nudists sit elegantly in a manor house mouthing bon mots silently while explicitly dirty words and phrases fade in and fade out on the screen. Passages from pornographic books are recited in a flat monotone while a picture of nature fills the screen. You'd have to be a hedonistic sex freak to actually be turned on by this. Which is the point actually....
Looks like an example of early Passolini films. A little bland.
