Elements is a foreign-shot Evil Angel film featuring the talents of Cherry Kiss, Tina Kay, Anna De Ville, and Misha Cross, who also directs the production.
Evil Angel is gonzo at its best with graphic scenes of female hotness that over the years has defined a porn genre.
Misha Cross’s Elements lifts EA’s philosophy to new heights. Capturing four scenes through a lens that focuses on earth, wind, fire, and water, Misha's artistic vision puts the grace of movement and the intensity of raw sex to the test. The result is porn that never forgets its erotic legacy.
To begin, let’s admire the tease that begins each shoot. It's porn competing with art.
The film's initial scene with Misha is open fields, horses, and blue skies. Doesn’t every little girl dream of a pony? By the time the kid reaches adulthood, her desires become Freudian and a horse’s “size” is often joked about.
Want proof? Notice how lovingly Misha caresses the horse that plays the scene with her. When the ponies run in the background and Misha waves her sparklers (think Freudian climax), the sex scene to come could not have a better introduction.
Cherry Kiss’s tease is beautiful cinematography. She’s on desert terrain in a white gown and diamond jewelry embedded in a body harness with necklace and forehead decoration. Watch for the line of blazing fire on the sand that concludes the scene. Hot in the loins? No doubt.
When it comes Tina Kay’s turn, a sweeping shot of the ocean leads the viewer to a lagoon. Freud's love of water and the womb is reborn.
As director, Misha Cross loves white in these teaser scenes. Pale fabric that highlights each girl’s nude image leads the viewer to the white room for the sex that becomes an extension of the director’s art.
Anna De Ville’s final scene changes the game a bit. In a body suit and stripper heels, she’s an acrobat, swinging on a suspended hoop that is more at home in a Vegas floor show than a porn film.
With legs wrapped around the ring, Anna floats and rotates. It’s a dreamlike vision that undulates with the industrial music that frames it.
Freud would be proud. Motion, his metaphor for sex, dominates each scene.
Each of the sex scenes responds to its tease setup.
Most of the penetrations are anal, but vag is not ignored. The third scene featuring Tina Kay is the most extreme. For the viewer who enjoys a little fun with slaps, spanks, gagging, nose pinching, and the like, it's a must-see. There is even a brief head dunking in a bathtub (remember water is the theme of this scene) to flavor the action. Tina smiles through it all.
All of the scenes run through the formulaic porn positions - mish, doggie, cowgirl, reverse cowgirl, and spoon. The girls wear heels which ratchets up the slut value of each shoot.
Overall, pretty sexy stuff I’d have to say. The girls are oral and anal experts (this is Evil Angel, after all) with bodies to die for. Of course, some variety of the facial rules the end of each shoot; that should be no surprise.
Elements is a foreign production shot in Germany and Spain by a director who is a native of Poland. From my personal experience with European adult film, folks across the pond know how to turn the porn shoot into elegance personified with cinematography that sometimes surpasses its American cousin.
As an actress, Misha Cross received major noms in several categories at this year's AVN Awards including foreign female performer of the year (which she has won twice, by the way). Her nom for best solo-tease performance in Misha in Exile stands out as the finest in its category, at least in my humble opinion. It’s spectacular and she’s carried that talent over to Elements.
A word about Misha's compadre Samantha Bentley. She worked on the soundtrack to give the entire film a music video feel.
By the way, don’t skip the BTS in this film. My kudos to Misha Cross for her social statement with her August Ames t-shirt.
A note to viewers. In order of appearance, the male performers in Elements are: Ramon Nomar, Erik Everhard, Chris Diamond, and Emilo Ardano.
