Friendly young cab driver (to the whore Shay) – Can I see you again?
Shay: Do you want to see me or see me?
– X (2011)
No, we’re no strangers to whores.
Every color of cunt, Black, Brown and White, has paraded her wares before these demanding, lascivious eyes when bolstered by a generous wallet.
Except on one occasion, when Julia Roberts’ Vivian Ward sashayed her way into our hearts via Pretty Woman, not even on our best day did we stumble on two hookers as beautiful as the blonde Holly and the brunette Shay.
Ah, the mere thought of these Holly and Shay Randis is enough to makes us experience Nirvana.
Sheer sextasy. White Nirvana.
Of course, the cognoscenti would have by now recognized that we’re referring to the roles played by Viva Bianca (essays the role of the older hooker Holly) and Hanna Mangan Lawrence (plays the younger whore Shay) in the 2011 Australian film X.
Directed by Jon Hewitt on a script that he co-wrote with his wife Belinda McClory, X is the kind of film that most Indians will never hear of unless wise souls like SI bring it to the attention of these putzheads.
A tight. fast-paced, revealing (in the literal sense) thriller, X is a very well-made film that takes us into the dark underbelly of Sydney life where prostitution, drugs, crime and corrupt cops intersect.
Viva Bianca and her younger compatriot Hanna Mangan Lawrence set the screen afire with their performances and body-shows.
Following her mother’s death, 17-year-old Shay has run away from home and comes to Sydney. Where she quickly cuts up her dress into a revealing, alluring outfit, stands on the mean-streets of Sydney, gets into turf battles and ends up giving handjobs to horny old-men driving staid cars.
Holly, on the other hand, is a veteran, worldly wise whore having been in the oldest profession since she was 15. But she’s on the verge of giving it all up and heading to Paris where she intends to make a new life.
The paths of the two whores cross on a dark Sydney street accidentally, literally and figuratively.
When the two hookers witness a murder while on a call at a John’s hotel, their lives are in great danger.
Scared out of their wits, the two pretty whores do their best to run but the vicious killer following them is relentless and won’t stop until he finishes them off.
The chase is on.
But it’s not easy for the two whores. One of them won’t make it!
Indian Chutiyas forever angling for the sight of some fair skin will love X because although it has two X lesser than standard porn fare, it has lots of nudity, front and back, of both men and women engaging in all kinds of sexual calisthenics.
Hey, this is a movie about two prostitutes.
What did ya expect? Ladies in nine-yard saris singing Suprabatham?
Jon Hewitt delivers a well-crafted thriller that amidst all the violence and ugliness sports a redemptive core.
SearchIndia.com strongly recommends X. You can get the DVD at Blockbuster or Netflix
