Moxxie Maddron is not a drama queen and she doesn’t do things just to be outrageous. She is not like Holly Golightly or even “That Girl”, delightfully upending the lives of people around her. Instead, it seems that everywhere she goes, sex happens. This is the plot of The Instigator.
A low-budget movie with dreams of something bigger, The Instigator is like many porn movies with basic setups; it just so happens that Maddron is in each scene and she is the one making things happen with the likes of Hillary Scott, Lindsey Meadows, and Jessica Jaymes.
While Scott, Jaymes, and Meadows are more well-known in porn circles than Maddron, she ties the room together like Jeff Lebowski’s rug. And she is also the aesthetic emissary to the band Lynam, who provide the movie’s soundtrack.
Because Maddron looks like a built-for-sex metal chick more than she does a porn star, especially compared to the more petite Scott and Meadows and the more exotic Jaymes. In the movie, she serves as a good-natured wingman for her more porny co-stars.
Directed by Maddron’s boyfriend. Chris King, The Instigator starts out like a Whitesnake video, with Maddron playing Tawny Kitaen. She shakes her mane and prances around the power trio, who claim to be the love children of Ronnie James Dio and Stevie Nicks (discredited).
The movie progresses through several standard scenarios: fucking on a porn set, fucking the stripper, fucking Nick Manning – twice. A bonus scene with unacknowleded punkporn godfather Matt Zane is actually the most satisfying because Maddron seems more at home in a rock and roll atmosphere.
I liked this movie, but I felt that Maddron should make the sequel with more friends who look like her, and film it backstage at the Vans Warped Tour or something, with Metal Sludge as the media sponsor. That would rock.
