There are a lot of good things about this DVD. First off, it has a more active view of the models of SuicideGirls (who mainly come out as static, owing to the fact that the only easy to find, free material are still pictures. The style of the DVD is interesting, to say the least. While the tone of the DVD is more towards the typical documentary style of things, the inclusion of some of the features on the DVD are perhaps the best chosen in recent memory. First off, for those individuals who wish to use the DVD as pure masturbatory material, there is the “no voices” option which just allows individuals to bask in the beauty of the models, instead of some of the dialogue.

The production of the disc has some interesting choices; first off, the cut-out effect is used much too often at the earliest stages of the video; much more effective for the tone of the disc is the traditional style of filming. While it is important to see all the facets of Suicidegirls, the decision to put a slow-toned burlesque number just a few minutes into the film will send individuals scrambling for the remote. Perhaps if that performance consisted of more than the trio of models walking up and down the walkway, I could understand the inclusion but as it stands, the footage only loses the listener. Also somewhat debatable on the disc has to be the modification of footage to give a “vintage” feel to it; all the footage was shot at the same time, and it almost feels as if the director is lying to the audience, that “we were around in 1977” when honestly, the footage is about two years old.

What is a smart decision by the producers of this video is the inclusion of “music videos” on the disc; with so much in the way of new tracks, by acts as wide-spread in their sound as Head Automatica and The Mooney Suzuki. However similar the majority of the Suicide Girls tend to look – after a while, when one sees goth/punk/rock model after model certain things will begin to look the same, actually getting the chance to hear what makes them tick is essential for the average individual who knows about the SuicideGirls site but has not purchased a subscription. The different “scenes” that each model deals with in the video really gives the disc a great replay value; there are doctors, waitresses and a number of other role-playing fantasies that would give the average Dungeons and Dragons player a run for their money. The length of the video is also very generous, as the simple fact is that SuicideGirls could come out with essentially a video half the length and still be justified in selling it for the full price. Good music, good models, and even interesting dialogue will make this a disc that will connect listeners on so many levels.
