MOPE, massacre in the land of bukkake


Revealed in 2019 at the Sundance Festival, MOPE traces the dramatic story of Steve driver, second-rate porn actor, convicted of murder … with a katana. Available exclusively on the Shadowz streaming platform, the film takes us into a sticky universe with fatalistic and squeaky humor.

Creepy, funny and awesomely pathetic. MOPE contains all the essential ingredients for a good genre film. The footage of Lucas Heyne is undoubtedly one of those who pass on nausea. To pass Boogie Nights for a nice, watered-down take on the porn industry. The movie theater mainstream has, in fact, regularly grasped the pitfalls of pornography. From the smooth portrait of Larry flynt trained by Miloš Forman in 1996 in bucolic-icing Lovelace in 2013, we will rarely have approached the matter in such a brutal way as in MOPE.

Underlying discomfort

In MOPE, everything oozes, everything implodes, everything smells bad. From the opening scene, the tone is set. In backroom lit by a single red light, they wait. You can almost feel the sweat on these paunchy, damaged, even simply banal bodies … In groups, piled up semi-naked, they are preparing to enter the scene. Some have their hands on their sex, others their eyes shy. When suddenly the light turns green. They then enter a room where a young lady awaits them, on her knees, on a plastic sheet. And we embark on a giant bukkake, the end result of which will not be spared us.

However, if good taste is already ringing with absent subscribers, the gloom has not yet reached its climax, since the men present all seem to be moved by a frank camaraderie. A certain regard for the pornographic actress is even hinted at – the producer of the scene hastening to address her some courtesies. And it is in this surreal context that MOPE creates friendship between its two main characters. In bright planes, in front of a marvelous landscape, the dream of becoming great porn stars in tandem is emerging. Uneasiness will quickly ensue.

Inspired by real events

MOPE endeavors to transcribe a real descent into Hell. That of Steve driver and Tom dong, two pornographic apprentices enslaved to the worst vices in the world of pornography. Entering through the back door in the early 2010s, the two men were considered mopes, understand “minions of the porn industry”. Not very talented and endowed with weakly advantageous physique, they were reduced to agreeing to shoot in videos intended for niche fetish audiences. Kicks in the private parts, scatophilia… They were desperate to find a place in the sun.

The film perfectly transcribes this vain and irrational quest for recognition, notably in an elliptical montage where Steve driver stoops to clean up feces that have fallen to the floor during an extreme anal scene. Nothing is ever beautiful, nothing is ever exciting, nothing ever makes you want. Driver and Dong are constantly faced with the most disturbing things in the industry. Reduced to their black and Asian ethnic characteristics, reluctantly relinquishing their consent, the two mopes in turn become victims and aggressors.

The shoulder camera Lucas Heyne borrows a lot from the codes of gonzo porn. As violent as a gang bang tagged “Rough” on Pornhub, the social and intellectual decadence of Steve driver explodes in our face in a brutal and uncompromising pathetism. When it comes to murder, the blade penetrates the flesh and the bloody effusion smears his face… like spunk that of the courageous actress at the beginning of the footage. In the end, you don’t come out entirely unscathed from the squeaky nightmare portrayed by MOPE. Especially since at the time of Mindgeek scandal, its viewing finds a very particular resonance …
