That old cynical showbiz standby of delivering a cautionary fable about exploitation in a nakedly exploiter package is pushed to a place where it’s no longer fun in “Girl in 3D.” A stream of info inserts, describing the dangers of being a runaway youth-or anyone else, for that matter– in Los Angeles, suggests a framing device for a drama-comedy about a gal who gets way more than she wished when she ends up in an S&M dungeon commanded by her favorite rock star. Hyperkinetically helmed and coedited by music vid vet Luis Aira, pic’s latex-coated sleaziness will ensure cable deals galore.
Running away from a beau in porno doesn’t land Vicky (Bevin Tucker) in any safer circumstances. She accepts $50 grand from Finch, a crooked con man of many guises (Michael J. Aronin), to be the “toy” for a month to rocker Stu (actual rocker Coyote Shivers). Somehow, we’re to believe that Stu whipping, slapping and torturing Vicky is going to inspire his dried-up creative juices, but pic revels in the pain and disturbingly erases the line between the gross humiliation of Vicky and of thesp Tucker.
