Inside Deep Throat

This is the kind of movie that five years ago, I would have made sure that I had seen it in the theaters so I could talk about it when it was out. Plus I never watched movies on DVD or cable so if I didn't see it in the theaters, I'd never see it.

Over the past few years, I've realized I don't have to see every single film in the theaters. This movie was fine but waiting two years to see it was A-Ok.

The movie itself was interesting. I'd never seen any footage from Deep Throat so I enjoyed seeing some of it to finally see what all the fuss was about. Any time I see footage from that era, I feel like I missed out. The early 70's seemed like a crazy ass time.

There are some really funny interviews in here. Apparently, I can't get enough of seventy-something former pornmakers. And the whole Linda Lovelace saga is such a sad one that it lends even more layers of intrigue to this documentary. An interesting film.

Dude your adoption of DVDs and cable is one of your biggest developments as a human!
