Writer director Sebastian Gutierrez premiered his film Women in Trouble at SXSW last year, and now he's back with Elektra Luxx, which picks up one month after that film ended. Thankfully, you don't have to have seen Women in Trouble to appreciate Elektra Luxx, although it sure helps. Especially because it's a fantastic movie with an off-the-wall sensibility and great performances, and will eventually be the first installment of a trilogy. Here, we'll help you out with a crash course (which doesn't let you off the hook, go find this movie).
Brief summary: Porn star Elektra Luxx (Carla Gugino) finds out she's pregnant, by her sometime rock star boyfriend Nick Chapel (Josh Brolin) who has just died while having sex with flight attendant Cora (Marley Shelton) on an airplane. Meanwhile, porn up and comer Holly Rocket (Adrianne Palicki) is struggling with a crush on her best friend Bambi (Emmanuelle Chriqui), and from time to time we see sex blogger Burt Rodriguez (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) comment via video on Elektra Luxx and her legendary career.
That's just to get you up to speed, and there's a lot more in the movie. So go seek it out on DVD or Blu-ray. For you lucky ones who have seen Women in Trouble, or if you just want to hear about the fantastic Elektra Luxx, beyond the break you can delve into a lot more.
