Be Careful Who You Get Close To

My wife and I watched an independent movie last night, a psychological drama mystery from director / co-writer Jon Knautz (“Jack Brooks : Monster Slayer”, “The Shrine”) titled “Goddess Of Love”.CSif1beVEAAJdgn

Venus (Alexis Kendra – “Wedding Day”, “Girl House”) is a dancer (sadly with some of the worst costumes I’ve ever seen!) at a strip club where a fellow dancer, Chanel (Monda Scott – “Almost Kings”, “Original Stereotype”) tells her that to boost her earning power she needs to make the male customers feel that she is a living fantasy rather than talking about her real life.

When Venus dances for a customer called Brian (Woody Naismith – “Swelter”, “Concealed”), however, she learns that he is a widower following the suicide of his wife and before you know it the pair have embarked on a passionate relationship.

Brian is friendly with his late wife’s good friend Christine (Elisabeth Sandy – “Apocalypse, CA”, “Neighbours”), but when Venus finds out her jealous side begins to show itself, leading to all manner of problems – but are they real , or imagined?…

Kendra co-wrote the film with Knautz and whilst it’s not the greatest movie I’ve ever seen I have to say that, for me, she absolutely made the movie. She portrayed the role of the insecure and damaged Venus superbly, and showed such incredible expression just through the use of her face, and especially her eyes, that I was very impressed indeed.

A neat twist towards the end tied things together and clarified some of the earlier scenes, and overall I’d say that watching the film was 93 minutes well spent. Great stuff…hftPlpfd2uw70GhIzCIVafgzUqW
