Two Go-Go Dancers, No Waiting

The "Inside Deep Throat" after-party almost lived up to expectations--no goodie bags were dispensed, which is probably just as well...who has time for sex toys when there are movies to be sold?--with lots of loud recorded music from the '70s, when "Deep Throat" was made. The diorama in the middle of the room was a pedestal, atop which two nearly topless (this is Utah, after all) go-go dancers gyrated spiritedly. The documentary, which had just premiered at Eccles--the festival's biggest venue--played on a giant screen in the background, but whether you were trying to talk, or just trying to drink contemplatively, it was almost impossible to take your eyes off those dancers. "Throat" star Harry Reems, shorn of his mustache and looking more like a retired golf pro than a legendary porn star, entered with filmmakers Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, briefly upstaging the go-go dancers. Briefly.

The screening room fracas described in yesterday's post has already become a favorite topic of discussion at the festival. At a screening last night of "Ellie Parker," starring Naomi Watts, the festival representative who introduced the film asked that there be no brawling between reporters at the screening.
