Sincerely, The Rotten Tomatoes Team
did a good job of showing - without the usual Hollywood sympathy - of a person caught in a downward moral spiral
+ A look at how the devil gets in through the cracks and then leads even those who are reluctant, at first, toward the slippery oily slope and away from all that's anchored & good. + Maybe not Kinnear's best - & he's usually terrific in even modest productions - but still good, if sad, since we already know the ending at the beginning. + The cinematography is great at the beginning, really good. But then, per the director, it becomes cliché from a hundred TV movies - life & decisions become more shaky, so does the increasingly handheld camera as the lighting also flattens-out. It would be interesting to see a different take on this pseudo Soderbergh motif.
Not really what I was expecting. This is a biopic of the man who created Hogan's hereoes, a TV show I have barely heard of. The story is fairly interesting but probably overexaggerated depiction of this blokes addiction to sex and women.
Interesting, somewhat disturbing.
The two leads are very strong and the implosion that was Crane's life is sad.Excellent acting in a good,downer of a story but one well told.
William Defoe at his sleazy best.
Kurt Fuller great as Klink.
A movie that looks in to the perverted life of Bob Crane. The movie is well acted. However, the life of Bob Crane is not that interesting other than he was a sex addict and a loser.
This memorable bio-pic of sex-addicted Hogan's Heroes star Bob Crane features beguiling performances from Greg Kinnear and Willem Dafoe, but Paul Schrader's dour, didactic direction combines with the already dark subject matter to create a viewing experience both graphic and grim. Like a clumsy Addie Bundren, Schrader uses images of addiction to condemn Crane's addiction to images, almost as if daring the audience to likewise denounce his film. I took him up on it. Rent it--at your own peril.
Great biopic. Definitely worth a watch.
Strong performances by Greg Kinnear and Willem Defoe bring to the forefront this look at a life on the skids caused by sex and pornography addiction typified by the tragic story of the likable star of TV's popular Hogan's Heroes.
