Auto Focus | 2002 | R | - 9.4.7

Biopic about the life, death and sexual obsessions of "Hogan's Heroes" star Bob Crane, based on the book, "The Murder of Bob Crane" by Robert Graysmith: After "Hogan's Heroes" was cancelled, Crane (Greg Kinnear) became obsessed with videotaping sex acts, and teamed up with a video technician (Willem Dafoe). Eventually, he was murdered in 1978, his skull crushed by a camera tripod, and the prime suspect was his video taping collaborator. Also with Maria Bello, Marieh Delfino and Kurt Fuller. [1:47]

SEX/NUDITY 9 - One scene shows numerous clips of scenes of a man with sexual partners having sex: One man and a woman in a dressing room (they're clothed), one man with two women (we see the women's bare breasts and his bare chest), a man and another woman with thrusting and moaning (we see her bare breasts), and a man and a woman in bed together. A man has sex with a woman from behind while another man videotapes them. A video shows a scene of an orgy with two men and at least one woman (the woman is totally nude) and we see the men kissing her body and one man puts his hand on the buttocks of the other man. A man and a woman have sex: we see their limbs entwined and they are both thrusting (their private parts are obstructed by their arms and legs). A video shows a completely nude woman, and a man walks on screen also nude, but we see him from the back, she lies down and he kneels on the floor. Two men masturbate while watching a video of them having sex with a woman (we see their arms moving rhythmically). A woman takes off her dress and has a corset on that exposes her bare breasts; one man kisses her and another man caresses her breasts. We see a video of a woman performing oral sex on a man: we see the man standing and thrusting (including his bare buttock) and her back with her head blurred and another video shows a similar scene with the woman's head bobbing and she's wearing only panties. Two men walk into a room full of nude women and nearly nude men; they drop their pants and take off their shirts as they walk in (an orgy is implied). We see a pile of photographs of a woman as she disrobes and then we see a man taking more pictures of her: she is shown bare breasted and in her panties, and there's another woman in the room in a bra and panties. We see many quick shots of women's breasts. A woman lifts her top to expose her bare breasts for a man to photograph. Two women dance together (they are bare-breasted and wear fringe-trimmed thongs) on a stage. A woman kisses a man and grabs his genitals and asks him to have sex with her and they kiss again. We see a video of a man unzipping his pants. A woman in a bra and thong dances on stage at a strip club, she removes her top and we see her bare breasts with pasties over her nipples. We see a completely nude woman as she stands by a pool and jumps in, and we see another completely nude woman. A man touches his crotch (he's clothed). A man flips through a photo album of women's nude breasts. A woman wears her blouse unbuttoned to expose cleavage. We watch a woman put on stockings and see part of her bare thigh. A man asks another man to look at his genitals and he does (he's just had an implant). A man and a woman dress after having had sex and they kiss. A man talks about a Jacuzzi party. Two men talk about making a big budget sex film. Men talk about "picking up" women and having sex with them in many scenes. We see another stripper wearing a low-cut dress that shows cleavage. Two men discuss women's breasts and do a thesaurus of other terms for breasts. A man's workshop is full of pornographic magazines and photographs of nude women. A man and a woman flirt and touch hands. A man admires a woman as she walks away from him. A woman confronts her husband about a collection of pornographic magazines that she finds in their home and asks him if he's "seeing another woman." A woman wears a night gown that exposes cleavage. A priest tells a man to "remove yourself from the occasion of sin" to avoid the temptation. The motto of two men is: "A day without sex is a day wasted." A man eats a banana suggestively. A man is accused of showing his young son "X-rated videos."

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man is hit on the head and killed with a tripod as he sleeps; we see blood spray on the wall, and the man lying with a puddle of blood around his head.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
