Although this is the second installment in Alis Locanta’s “Incandescence” series, it is assigned no volume or chapter number, and none is needed. Because the narrative is so simple – and concisely encapsulated by the subtitle “A Doll’s Tale” – each actress who performs in the solo series has free rein to put her own unique stamp on the title. And, as is made abundantly clear in this instance, “Incandescence” is particularly well suited as an introductory vehicle for a new star.
French-Canadian Ariel Rebel, making her first ever appearance in a Sexart production, is assigned the doll role here, and with her big brown eyes and delicate features one might consider this an instance of type casting. But Rebel not only looks the part, she also convincingly embodies a doll undergoing a vivid and intense – if only temporary – experience as a living, breathing, feeling woman. Standing in a room with numerous lamps as well as bare bulbs hanging from the ceiling Rebel makes a fine first impression in her short, tight skirt, black hose and garters, and sheer black blouse over a sheer black bra. Although the camera cuts away periodically and moves in for detailed close-ups, its major role is of mirror, and Ariel gazes into it intently as her newly discovered erotic desires begin to percolate.
The process of awakening and arousal isn’t instantaneous, but once it’s begun there’s no stopping it, and after she’s groped, stroked, and fingered herself to a fever she drops into a squatting position and vigorously probes herself to a thrilling, expressive, finish. An epilog that runs under the credits is subtitled “A ‘Lube Experience’ Dedicate to Rose,” and features an entirely – and adorably – human Rebel indulging in a brief bit of oil-assisted solo play that everybody (Sexart insider or not) is sure to enjoy.
