The People vs Larry Flynt

5 years, 5 months ago at Mar 4 20:31
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

A very good movie

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. Well, I think it is still a really fascinating story and, once again, Milos Forman managed to deliver an impressive biographical tale of one notorious famous figure (see also the even bett... read more

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.

Brilliant To The Awful - Movies Watched In 2015 (211 movies items)

"This movie chronicles the life of magazine publisher Larry Flynt, a self-described "scum" who challenged Playboy in the 1970's with his skin magazine Hustler. Woody Harrelson gives a surprisingly solid, excellent performance as Flynt, Courtney Love is fine as his drug-addicted wife, Edward Norton terrific as Flynt's attorney, yet the script doesn't give the actors nor the audience much to go on. Director Milos Forman doesn't observe this story with any irony, his big scenes aren't built up or sh"

"01.05.2015 Eipä ole koskaan tullut Hustleria selailtua, vaikka tissit ovatkin kiinnostavia. Forman sen sijaan on hyvä ohjaaja, joka saa tästä aiheesta irti kohtuullisen paljon. Näyttelijät tekevät hyvää duunia, maailma ei ole vapaa paikka ja sen tämä filmi tekee hyvin selväksi."

Miika's Movie Diary - 2015 (219 movies items)

"26.2, TV Turhan tyypillinen elämänkertaelokuva, joka etenee laiskasti sitä samaa vanhaa ryysyistä rikkauksiin-periaatetta noudattaen. Toteutukselle täytyy kuitenkin nostaa hyväksyvästi hattua, sillä elokuva on asenteeltaan sopivan satiirinen eikä edes hahmojen vastoinkäymisten myötä lähdetä liikaa vakavoitumaan. Harrelsonin hahmo on kusipäisyydessään ja hällä väliä-asenteensa puolesta kivaa katsottavaa. Mainoskatkot tietty söivät kokonaisuuden tuntua, mikä nyt ei tietenk"

200 & 99 Of My Favorite Films From The 1990's (299 movies items)

"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 Flynt. 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 with the same nam"

"12.2. Koko kansan nallekarhu joutuu oikeusjärjestelmän eteen, ja nousee ryysyistä rikkauksiin. Välillä hänellä on vaikeaa. Tavallinen tarina amerikkalaisesta unelmasta epätavallisella sankarilla. Courtney Love on parasta koko elokuvassa."

"12.2.2012, TV Rewatch. **** -> ***½ Mainio leffa tämä vieläkin on, vaikka ei ehkä kolahtanut ihan niin kovaa mitä ensimmäisellä kerralla. Woody Harrelson on varsin kova roolissaan Larry Flyntina ja Flyntin toilailuja on oikeasti aivan hulvaton katsoa. Courtney Love on varsin ruma nainen mutta silti hänen sekoilua on huvittava katsoa. Nortonkin on ihan ookoo sivuroolissaan, mistä ei voi paljoa sanoa."

10 Memorable Movie Poster Controversies (10 movies items)

" Comment: “It does seem strange that a film whose message is anti-censorship has its poster censored,” noted Alan Isaacman, the civil rights attorney played by Edward Norton in this 1996 biopic of the Hustler founder and First Amendment crusader. But that’s exactly what happened when Columbia Pictures submitted the rather loaded image of an American flag diaper-clad Woody Harrelson in a crucifixion pose across a woman’s pelvis. The MPAA rejected the ad, without comment (as usual); acc"
