‘Naked Ambition’: The MPAA’s still scared of sex.
For some reason, I’ve been knee deep in red-band trailers this week. First it was the new “Borat” trailer, which the MPAA labeled red-band (meaning that it is restricted from being shown in front of youth-oriented films). Now it’s a trailer for “Naked Ambition: An R-rated Look at an X-rated Industry,” a new documentary about the adult film business by Michael Grecco, a prominent celebrity photographer. The film, which opens in L.A. on May 1 at the Laemmle Sunset 5, offers a behind-the-scenes portrait of adult film stars, talking about their work and how they ended up in the business.
