Trivia

In one of the first few scenes, just after the first crossword puzzle shot, when Mark Anton, portrayed by Jared Grey, is walking through the seemingly empty porn studio offices, we see porn promo posters on the walls, and VHS porn video boxes ready for shipping. None of the titles on the posters or boxes were actually produced porn movies, only made up titles, as well as made up porn actors names, just for the purposes of this movie. Also, since the setting of the opening scenes is supposed to be 1995, accurately the videos are VHS tape format, and not DVD disc format. See more »

Goofs

When Harry calls Michael's cell phone, to tell him about the busted old video tape that he restored for Michael, the call is disconnected, and Michael clearly hears a fast busy or "phone off the hook" signal. "Phone off the hook" signals are not heard on cell phones when the other party disconnects, the line just goes silent and the call is ended. See more »

Two thumbs up!
17 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent, enticing and thought-provoking movie that doesn't infantilize and spoon-feed the audience like most of the assembly-line crap that is now coming out of the film industry. This movie gets right at the lizard brain, without apologies, and challenges the viewer--gay or heterosexual, male or female--to look at and tolerate the darker, naked aspects of the human condition. It breaks my heart and frustrates me to no end that that this film will likely not reach as broad an audience and receive the level of attention and acclaim it deserves--as it undoubtedly would if the porn industry depicted were heterosexual--because too many members of our society are still too fearful to explore different realms and find the underlying commonalities.
