Blue Movie is a satirical novel by Terry Southern about the making of a high-budget pornographic film. The story line follows the celebrated cinematic auteur Boris Adrian, "King B", who undertakes The Faces of Love, an episodic film with high budget production values that will explicitly depict the range of human sexual experience. The filmmaker is loosely based on Stanley Kubrick. Southern, who collaborated with Kubrick on Dr. Strangelove, dedicated the book "To the great Stanley K." It received only moderate reviews. Sales were hampered by the refusal of the NY Times to run ads for the book.
A hilarious, wildly erotic & biting satire of Hollywood, Blue Movie tells the story of an Oscar-winning director who's determined to shoot the dirtiest & most expensive X-rated movie ever made; Sid Krassman, a producer who's made a fortune catering to the tastes of the American public, & Angela Sterling, a misunderstood sex symbol who'd give anything (& everything) for a chance to do something "serious."
