Hardcore 1979

Before 8mm and Tesis there was Hardcore. When we realize that Hardcore was a movie from the 70s it does convey that nothing we see now is new. Everything we see now was happening in the past as well. We have the habit of considering the previous generation as an innocent one but as we go back in the past we can see none of the atrocities that we see now is new and they were being committed from the beginning.


For audiences the movie might remind them of some parts of Mahanadi. Hardcore is all about the search of a highly moralistic father for his missing daughter through the underground world of Porn industry. As he encounters the people in the industry it is also a revelation to us. When the movie ends we do feel sorry for the character Niki who helps him throughout the search. But then that's world ain't it?
