“Inside Deep Throat”

Filed under: — stan @ 5:03 pm


We went to see “Inside Deep Throat” today. It was a hoot. Very entertaining, and informative, especially if you’re not really up on the history of the porn industry and the government’s attempts to shut it down. They tracked down and interviewed a lot of the people who were involved in making, distributing, and prosecuting the film. They told lots of funny stories about their experiences, and talked about how this little movie they made became part of history. It’s also funny to see people such as Roy Cohn and Charles Keating denouncing “Deep Throat” in the film, since their ’skeletons in the closet’ were not yet known at that time.

The guys who made this documentary are the same ones who made “The Eyes of Tammy Faye“, which was also very entertaining. Overall, we recommend this film. It was great fun.
