Companion Piece to "The People Vs Larry Flynt"
4 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

I just saw this over the weekend, and quite enjoyed it, but I still can't somehow wonder if I would've enjoyed it more had I not already seen the 1996 film, Milos Forman's "The People Vs. Larry Flynt", which was basically a dramatization of most of the same events we see in this documentary-?? I gave the film an 8/10, but that rating was mostly meant for the movie by itself, separate from the previous film. To be honest, if I were to give this movie a rating having already seen PVLF, it would probably be more like a 6/10, only because I felt like I had already seen it to some degree. But overall, a good documentary, in spite of it falling flat a little bit here and there. And lots of great interviews from some well-known folks in the "jizz bizz" including Flynt himself, Ron Jeremy, Al Goldstein, Luke Ford, Amber Lynn, etc...
