Porn Star Sasha Grey Rides the Funicular at Lautner's Chemosphere

New, 11 comments

Richard Phillips's short film "Sasha Grey" is a portrait of that foxy fantasy object the Chemosphere, designed by John Lautner and currently owned by publisher Benedikt Taschen. Adult film actress Sasha Grey is also in it. The film will be shown this week at the Venice Biennale, along with Phillips's "Lindsay Lohan," which was shot in Malibu. Here's what you're looking at: "Looking over the roadside from the vantage point of one the most legendary residences in modern and cinematic history, Sasha reflects on her relationship to the San Fernando Valley landscape- the location of some of her most noted adult performances. Back inside the circular vortex of the Chemosphere, Sasha's inner dialogue projects an equally diaristic and imaginary self-portrait that pushes beyond the extremes of her past filmography and into her new future." The music is by Chelsea Wolfe. Meanwhile, Lautner is really becoming the go-to architect for hazy, sexy, languidness on film.
