Amelia G writes that the casting of the film is not the mainstreaming of porn and with punk icon writer/actor/director Dick Rude on board, describing the film as “mainstream” is not a compliment.
Lux Alptraum picked up the story at Fleshbot and writes, "the mainstream press may have hailed Sasha Grey a crossover star, but Amelia G's not so sure she agrees. Perhaps instead of drawing a line in the sand between porn and ‘mainstream’ media, we should throw out all the labels and just recognize Sasha as a star, period. Oh, and she's also thrown in a gallery of the lovely Sasha, which definitely makes her argument all the more compelling."
