Dangerous Touch

Genre: Erotic, Mystery and Thriller; Starring: Kate Vernon, Lou Diamond Phillips, Max Gail; Director: Lou Diamond Phillips; Author: Lou Diamond Phillips, Kurt Voss; MPAA Rating: R

The problem with being a cowriter-director-star is that it doesn’t leave you much time to hang out at the video store, so Lou Diamond Phillips had no way of knowing how many movies have already been made about female sex therapists who get swept off their feet by kinky strangers. And while Dangerous Touch doesn’t exactly disgrace this tradition, the film’s only real distinction is in the way it reduces the usual convoluted vengeance plot down to a bare-bones excuse for soft-core sex scenes. But even the worst X-rated auteur wouldn’t attempt the hokey way Phillips intercuts lovemaking scenes with a violinist playing, although he probably just couldn’t find any stock footage of trains and tunnels.
