Not What You Might Expect
26 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the heading line proclaims, I walked into this,expecting it to be a diatribe on porn. Silly me. What I got was a top flight documentary about a man who stood for freedom of the press,as well as an advocate for free speech. Yep,you guessed it:Larry Flynt,the publisher of Hustler (the anti Playboy). Early on,the doc does explain Flynts early salad days as a club owner,who decided to start a news letter on the girls he hired in the club. The news letter turned into a magazine for adults, specializing in graphic photographs of unclad attractive women in provocative poses. As to be expected,the 'zine did get both it's pros,as well as just as many cons. Flynt went on to be the outspoken voice against censorship (despite an assassination attempt in 1978, which left him paralyzed from the waste down). He also went on to take on the conservative religious/political right (there is plenty of video footage of his case against Jerry Falwell). He now tours the country as a well spoken orator,speaking out against George W.Bush,and other ilk of his kind. I would well recommend this to free speech advocates,as well as anybody who appreciates the documentary form.
