    There’s a probing, but flattering documentary yet to be made about the secret lives of porn stars. Unfortunately, “Aroused,” the directorial debut of photographer Deborah Anderson, is not it.

    Review: 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Often Thrills, But Undone By An Underwritten Villain & Thin Story
