About as good a documentary of John C. Holmes as you could find.
6 September 2005 | by (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

John Holmes is, without a doubt, the most famous of the male adult film stars. With his good looks, height, and significant member, Holmes made a very comfortable living in the Golden Age of porn. However, the once clean-living Holmes slowly fell into drugs, alcohol, and criminal activity. In the end, he died from AIDS a physically broken man.

John Holmes: The Man, The Myth, The Legend is a fine documentary that details his sordid life from the stories of his fellow actors, his ex-wives, and directors. Clips of his work are shown and insight on what made the man tick are given. Despite all his flaws, you can't help but admire him for what he was. He was someone that made sure he got what he wanted or else. He went from being shy and reserved to upfront and demanding.

While Boogie Nights and Wonderland are great movies that detail his travails, the documentary probably offers the most honest story of his life and is free of the excesses of Hollywood. Worth a look.
