It has been a while since I saw this flick (I even think I saw it back when it was released in the movie theater) and since I really enjoyed it the first time around, I was really eager to give it a second look.

One of my favorite movies when I was younger, but a little bit ambiguous because nothing is said about Chester the mollester a comic strip in Hustler, wich give a funny vision of rape and pedophilia.

The People vs. Larry Flynt is not your normal biographical film. There is no grandstanding urge to make his history and personality more crowd pleasing, allowing us to walk away knowing that, yes, this person did something good and deserved a movie made about them. They were noble and heroic. Or, the approach where we focus on an entire life that has been lived, warts and all, but largely fictiona... read more

PopMatter's Essential Film Performances - 2013 (50 movies items)

"Courtney Love I realize the argument for including Love in this particular version of our Essential Performances series might seem shaky to some purists, but hear me out because it makes sense. Because the HFPA has such a rich history of nominating music royalty for acting awards, and since Love does have some of the most warm, funny moments in this film as Larry Flynt’s wife Althea, I think she fits here (despite the fact she was actually nominated in the Golden Globes’ Lead Actress in a Dr"

"It's the fight of the century as the King 'O' Porn takes on the public masses...... And as usual, it's the porn that wins. This is the rags to filthy x-rated riches story of adult magazine magnate and spokesman, Larry Claxton Flynt, Jr.. TPvLF follows his journey as he goes from the bootleggin' "backwoods" of Kentucky to the multi-million empire of smut-rags, and continues from his brief stint into religion to his wheelchair-bound transition to Beverly Hills (the city, not the porn-star w"
