John Holmes: The Man, the Myth, the Legend (2004)

*** (out of 4)

Ginger Lynn, Bill Margold, Sharon Mitchell, Mark Novick, Roger Diamond, Bill Amerson and Laurie Holmes are among the people interviewed about the life and career of porn legend John Holmes.

The great thing about this documentary is that everyone interviewed had direct contact with Holmes throughout his career so we get some wonderful stories about the porn star. These stories include countless discussions about his penis size but we also get more stories about what he was like off the set including his non-stop lying. The documentary spends most of its time discussing the good side of Holmes so one might say that the film isn't as hard-hitting as it should have been. The Wonderland murders are briefly discussed as was his decision to make another porn movie after learning he had AIDS.

The interviews are all extremely good and they certainly help give you a better idea of who John Holmes really was. I do wish the film had discussed his films a bit more including what type of box office appeal he had and what impact him being in a movie had in regards to the public wanting to see it.
