Critical Rating: Not Yet Rated
Like John Holmes himself, this video is ground-breaking, fascinating to watch, and just a little bit too long. but Holmes' paradoxical life and nature demands the minutes, and this Hall of Porn Heroes is full of industry gossip and insights. Expertly shot, packed with articulate and intelligent friends, lovers, co-workers, ex-wives, girlfriends, journalists and cops, this is one documentary that has it all. There's sex, drugs, violence, betrayal, loss of innocence, lies, love and tragedy. Although it may never get the recognition it deserves inthe biography genre and will never be introduced by Peter Graves, this is a well-done and important contribution to recording the history of X.
Fans of Holmes and students of porn history should find this fascinating and educational viewing.
