Alla Ricerca del Piacere (1972, ITA) C-98m. ** D: Silvio Amadio. Starring Farley Granger, Barbara Bouchet, Rosalba Neri, Umberto Raho. Bouchet is writer Granger's new secretary, but she only applied for the job because her friend, Granger's old secretary, has mysteriously disappeared. Soon she finds herself entagled in all-night parties, sex and drugs. Quite interesting, well-mounted giallo bogs down a little in mid-section but is worth watching alone for seeing Neri and Bouchet make love in slow motion. Hypnotic score by Teo Usuelli. Alternative titles: AMUCK!, HOT BED OF SEX, LEATHER AND WHIPS, REPLICA DI UN DELITTO, and MANIAC MANSION.
