Jim Powers’ Bitter Sweet focuses on the pretty people living the life working at one of L.A.'s hottest modeling agencies, and how easily they’re seduced by all the trappings of this fantasy world. Depicting how easy it is for male models to have their pick of women, the women who get their hearts broken by them, and the fast living world they all live in, Powers directs a very erotic feature about the ugliness behind the glamorous life.
The casting here is first-rate, featuring an excellent lineup of young Porn Valley performers who are all believable in their respective roles. Xander Corvus delivers one of the best leading male performances of the year as a spoiled hot male model of the moment who’s clueless about how long his star will shine, while also stepping back to let Zoey Monroe shine in this star-making turn for her as a line producer assigned to shadow him. Zoey and Xander close out this title with a fiery sex scene that far exceeds most feature sex scenes this year.
Bitter Sweet is unquestionably one of 2013’s hottest couples-friendly titles. Powers has directed a scorching, sexy picture with plenty of gonzo style sex and an equally interesting storyline to match. The chemistry between performers is 100 percent authentic, and Corvus is impressive on all counts. All technical matters, including camerawork, lighting, editing and writing, are top-notch as well. Bitter Sweet is a movie that will earn itself plenty of all-around praise.
