I checked this out after reading a review that compared filmmaker Tinto Brass to Russ Meyer, along the lines of "what Meyer was to breasts, Brass is to ass" or something to that effect. So you can imagine what I was expecing: huge naked bootys all over the place!

While the asses are of underwhelming size, I will say they are a-plenty in CHEEKY. Brass's camera is most often fixated on the lower half of the female anatomy, namely the pelvic area, front and back. From the opening scene in the park, if you get your kicks from looking up skirts then you'll think you've gone to heaven with this movie. It's simply everywhere. Tons of nudity, sure, but the only similarity I saw to Meyer's work was the use of dildos when an actual penis would be shown. But whereas the cartoonish nature of Meyer's films kinda lends itself to this, Brass portrays things a bit more realistically and it didn't work as well. You'd see a Tinto Brass picture on Cinemax before you'd see a Russ Meyer. Just sayin'. I'd classify one as "erotica" and the other as "exploitation".

Actually, never mind. Now that I think back on it, CHEEKY has some moments that seemed like porno due to the gonzo-style camera angles and detailed closeups of orifices. Orifi. What's the plural of orifice?
