The movie's themes are aptly captured in the double entendre of the title, suggesting both Crane's narcissism and the video technology that abets it...a lot of Auto Focus is coolly funny--it's a slyly satiric comedy of '60s manners.
Auto Focus is a tense and gripping film, filled with surprises and overt contradictions of the human condition. It's also a terrifying look at a man who loses his sense of himself and is caught in his own net of deceit as he self destructs.
Schrader weaves American sexual mores, advances in video technology, dangerous impulses and awareness of self into one compelling thread. The movie has a precise vision - funny, sad and profound all at once.
