One of the true masters of all-male erotica, Jean-Daniel Cadinot had no equal. We were always ardent admirers of his work – some of which ranks in the all-time top echelon of gay adult filmmaking. Their emphasis is on young international men and truly eye-popping (and occasionally very rough) sexual situations. He never really got his due here in the States (in our opinion) and preferred to only release his films – including his new ones – solely for the European market. After his passing, many became available for the first time ever in North America. Unfortunately, they are now going out of print in the U.S., so we scored this very special deal. First come, first served; no backorders can be honored. Below is the bio from his personal website we thought you’d find interesting. The man forever changed the face of gay erotica, and left a mark none of us will soon forget. Here’s your chance – perhaps your last one for the foreseeable future – to own some of his very best.
Before he became the stalwart director behind Brokeback Mountain, the great Ang Lee invited the world to The Wedding Banquet back in 1993. Described at the time as “La Cage aux Folles, Asian-American style,” this wholesome gay comedy crossed over to mainstream audiences – not only in America, but all over the world.
Back in 2015, Cohen Media Group made a deal with Merchant Ivory Productions and acquired 30 films under their label. Part of the deal stated that Cohen Media Group would restore and re-release these classic titles – with original director James Ivory having a hands-on role in the massive endeavor. We’re now able to catch a glimpse of with this glorious 4K restoration of the gay classic Maurice.
Now considered a classic gay novel, “Maurice,” E.M. Forster‘s self-suppressed 1914 love story, was not published until after his death in 1970. With the same reverence, respect and regal authority that they brought to A Room with a View and Howard’s End, Merchant Ivory Productions created an exquisite and sexually bold adaptation of the author’s semi-autobiographical novel.
