Easy Alice (1976)

Joey, a San Francisco lowlife and occasional porn star, takes a one day shoot, after which he wanders aimlessly around the city meeting random people and having anonymous sex.

Easily one of the most complex and underrated features of the golden age of sexually explicit cinema. Cinéma vérité style adult film blends elements of Warhol & John Cassavetes, with sharp widescreen cinematography and realistic improvisation into a always interesting, unpredictable character study. A totally believable time capsule of the period. The hardcore scenes are not meant to be erotic but just another facet of the sad losers that inhabit this world.
