An Erotic Adventure In Sex And Cinema
Academy AwardÂ® winner Richard Dreyfuss "gives a tour-de-f-rce performance" (Los Angeles Times) in this provocative collision of sex and cinema. With "flashes of wit and outrageous black humor" (Los Angeles Times), this seductive story is loaded with "imagination [and] quirky charm" (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times).
In the golden days of silent films, genius director Boy Wonder (Dreyfuss) was king of the silver screen. But when talkies took over Tinseltown, he took a nosedive...right into the sordid business of erotic films. Now, with a career in chaos and a dead leading lady (Veronica Cartwright) on his hands, the tormented maestro must rise above his artistic impotence and turn his latest X-rated thriller into a class-A masterpiece.
