My Car Is My Lover – Documentary
This documentary follows mechaphiles – people who have a sexual fetish for machines in this case cars.
I personally think this is a great documentary idea as it really makes you think about what would drive someone to do such a thing. It shows a personal incite to a few mechaphiles and how they became mechaphiles and what they do on a daily basis. Some parts are cringe worthy such as catching a man having sex with his car but that’s what makes you want to watch more and understand what he feels. The questions that are asked are quite brazen but they’re the questions you want to know and the documentary maker feels these have to be asked to get the most out of his subject. Questions like, ‘How do you have sex with your car?’ and ‘Do you know that some people think you’re weird?’ It’s bold and definitely adds to the film and adds to the bizarre and niche fetish that makes the film what it is.
