Joe Sarno Retrospect Series Vol. 2:
All The Sins Of Sodom / Vibrations
Remastered from the original film elements
A pioneer of exploitation cinema, American film director and screenwriter Joseph W. Sarno’s (1921-2010) prolific career spans the evolution of the genre. “One of the true pioneers of celluloid erotica” he was also dubbed the “Chekov of soft-core” by The Village Voice. Film Movement Classics has partnered with Film Media and Something Weird to release new restorations of two Sarno classics on DVD for the very first time - the second installment in the Joseph W. Sarno Retrospect Series with ALL THE SINS OF SODOM & VIBRATIONS. Packaged together, this exclusive collection, also featuring specially-produced extras such as an interview with Sarno himself and audio commentary, is now available!
Shot back-to-back with VIBRATIONS in 1968, ALL THE SINS OF SODOM has been hailed as “one of Sarno’s most captivating films” and the exploitation auteur is at the top of his game in this penetrating study of ambition, romance and lust set inside the world of fashion photography. Encouraged by his agent, Henning, a struggling New York City photographer, begins a daring portfolio of his model, Leslie. But all too soon, jealousies erupt when another model vies for his camera and bed in this elegantly filmed time capsule of late ’60s New York.

In VIBRATIONS, aspiring writer Barbara moves to Manhattan to jump-start her career and social life, but ends up typing manuscripts. Alone at night, she listens to the sound of her sexy neighbor as she entertains herself and her friends with the aid of her vibrator. When her extroverted sister, Julie, comes to town, Barbara is forced to confront her repressed desires. One of Sarno’s 1960s classics, VIBRATIONS is “classy and sophisticated, beautifully shot…filled with wonderful performances and as sexy as hell”
