Inside Deep Throat

Rated NC-17 2005

Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (makers of The Eyes of Tammy Faye) provide a snappily paced, unceasingly entertaining, and moderately schizophrenic immersion into the life and times of the most infamous and lucrative porn movie ever made. Released in 1972, Deep Throat penetrated mainstream culture, grossing some $600 million and elevating blowjobs from the realm of dirty sex. But it wasn't all cream and peaches -- the film was banned in 23 states, and lead actor Harry Reems was brought to trial. This documentary was produced by Hollywood stalwart Brian Grazer (Ron Howard's producing partner) in association with HBO, and one senses the imperatives of accessible entertainment driving the breeziness that buoys most of it. Bailey and Barbato take enormous delight in milking the pop culture of the '70s for camp laughs. The film falls short only in its refusal to take a stand on whether star Linda Lovelace was a victim, as she claimed.
