Description

A scan of director David Blyth’s career leaves one stunned. At the tender age of 22, he created his first feature film, ANGEL MINE, a controversial gaze at suburban New Zealand couple’s slide into hell. His name went worldwide with 1985’s DEATH WARMED UP, a surprising horror/sci-fi hybrid that’s a cult classic to this day. That was followed by RED-BLOODED AMERICAN GIRL, the comdey MOONRISE with Al Lewis, and a fistful of POWERS RANGERS episodes. TRANSFIGURED NIGHTS and BOUND FOR PLEASURE find Blyth in documentary mode, exploring a theme echoed throughout his filmography: fetishism and its demimonde.

There’s an interesting parallel between a visit to the dentist’s chair and to a dominatrix’s dungeon. Both require an appointment made in advance, and you should make your specific needs known beforehand. Both also come with an elevated possibility of pain, but in the case of the dominatrix, that’s precisely the point! BOUND FOR PLEASURE investigates the business side of fetish culture through interviews with women for whom whips and chains are a profession more than a perversion. They share their thoughts on why certain men desperately need to submit to their commands, and in fact invite the viewer to sit in on sessions. One unforgettable moment is the woman passing the secrets of domination down across the generations to her son. There’s clearly more going on in New Zealand than hobbit antics…
