"My books have just fallen through the cracks." 1091 has released a trailer for an indie documentary titled Naughty Books, which is indeed all about "naughty books" as the title says. This just premiered at the Cinequest Film Festival earlier this year. Austen Rachlis' doc Naughty Books examines the steamy world of erotic romance, following three self-published authors who go from living at the margins to making millions by transforming their fantasies into fiction and wrestling with the realities of success. "On the surface, this movie is about self-published romance novels, but at its core, it's about women challenging the status quo and stepping forward to tell the world they aren’t ashamed of their sexuality. In [these days] where #MeToo dominates the headlines… Naughty Books celebrates women reclaiming their sexuality on their own terms."
Here's the first official trailer for Austen Rachlis' doc Naughty Books, direct from 1091's YouTube:
As sexy as it is smart, Naughty Books examines the steamy world of erotic romance novels by following three self-published authors who transform their lives by turning their fantasies into best-selling fiction — and wrestling with the stark realities of what comes after their initial success. Naughty Books is directed by writer / filmmaker Austen Rachlis (aka Austen Eleanore Rachlis), making her feature directorial debut after mostly writing work previously. Produced by Kate Buhrmaster and Austen Rachlis. This premiered at the Cinequest Film Festival earlier this year. 1091 Pictures will release Rachlis' Naughty Books doc direct-to-VOD starting October 6th this fall. For more info, visit the film's official website. Is anyone interested?
Just because something is written or made by a woman for women audiences does not mean it's feminist. I think a lot of this success for "erotic" books for women is (was) the "forbidden fruit" factor. All that being said...this doesn't look that compelling. On a side note, if this pandemic isn't under control fast, I fear for the movie industry. A lot of garbage is seeping out.

As for the movie industry, I might sound awful, but I don't really mind if it all goes to hell. In my view, that would be really great because movie industry, after knowing for what it is, needs some alternative. Don't ge me wrong, I like films very much but they're mostly money grab and after the way they are made the whole culture has become dependent on money and it shows more and more that quality of big productions are mostly atrocius. No tears there. Just like with improvement of the environmental issues in this situation, I'm applauding to the fall of movie industry ...

Those books hardly have some great value as a literature. But they are index of desire, a serious sign that you can't control it whether one is feminist or a conservative. Or whatever ...
