THE AUTEUR follows formerly renowned porn director Arturo Domingo (Five Easy Nieces, Requiem for a Wet Dream) through a bizarre weekend as he receives a lifetime achievement award at a film festival in Portland, OR.

Encountering crazed fans, former collaborators, bitter enemies, and free-loving hippies, Arturo attempts to put the pieces of his broken career and personal life back together.

Not one frame of this horrible amateurish movie makes sense. It doesn't even lampoon the porn industry well. It's idiotic.

I'd bet it as written by some loser who has never even seen a porno. It's 3rd grade level writing and kindergarten directing. Not one frame is funny or poignant.

A huge waste of time.
