  1. Nimble, engrossing, and journalistically eye-opening, a movie that pulls into focus 30 years of porn in America. It also pulls no punches.
  2. Offbeat documentary filmmakers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato dissect the history and legend of perhaps the best known and most profitable pornographic movies ever made.
  3. The doc is longer on historical interest than original insights or analysis.
  4. By turns funny and sobering, sweeping and intimate, the consistently entertaining Inside Deep Throat plays like a giddy prance through the minefield of the last three decades of American sex and politics.
  5. Not even the film's director Gerard Damiano will argue for Deep Throat being a great movie. But, hey, at least there's no gag order anymore.
  6. 63
    Passably interesting, occasionally compelling, sporadically amusing, and badly lacking in focus.
  7. A "slam, bam, thank you, ma'am" trifle of an entertainment.

    Excellent movie. It's worth seeing for the John Waters sequences alone. I had never seen actual film "Deep Throat," but I can tell you Excellent movie. It's worth seeing for the John Waters sequences alone. I had never seen actual film "Deep Throat," but I can tell you that this film shows you just enough to understand exactly why it was groundbreaking. The recounted reactions to the "key sequence" by the actors, director, and everyone else who was on the set are priceless. Everybody in our theater was roaring. The film does a nice job in again characterizing the feminist movement of the mid-70s as one of the more counterproductive and even harmful of its kind in American sociological history. And poor Harry Reems. Wow, he was put the ringer, huh? Expand
