A seamless, eye-opening entertainment about the civil rights activist side of the Playboy publisher.
Even after 124 minutes of praise he still seems like a sad bastard.
Hefner's Playboy Foundation fought for civil liberties in general. The cost for these activities came out of his profits, and that didn't give him a moment's pause.
A studiously airbrushed portrait of its subject, this obsequious biography of Hugh Hefner highlights his undeniable and important good works, while skirting any serious effort at context or psychological insight.
This is not a probing examination of Hef in all his complexity.
This eye-opening documentary reveals the mensch beneath the moolah, the ardent social reformer beneath the paisley-patterned shirts.
There are few people who can be credited with affecting real or lasting change in our culture. One of them is Hugh Hefner, an aspiring cartoonist who borrowed money to put...
More of a pat on the back than a true examination of the man inside the robe.
Definitely worth a look.
The Playboy empire unabashedly lined up with liberal causes, bringing messages of racial tolerance, resistance to the military-industrial complex, and anti-Puritanism into bedrooms all over America.
To put it mildly, the doc is way more than just T&A , Bunnies and centerfolds. Although there's some of that too.
Those who consider Hefner a man who made fortunes by exploiting women in his magazine should find no reason to change their minds after watching this fascinating, illuminating document of America during a time of profound change.
Far more than boobs and bunny tails Hefner has made a significant sociopolitical contribution to America. An education - I highly recommend it.
