INSIDE DEEP THROAT

Inside_deep_throat Fenton Bailey's and Randy Barbato's gregarious documentary tells the story of the 1972 X-rated porn movie that attracted mainstream appeal and governmental interference as an example of sexual liberation and as a scapegoat of  immorality.

This keen look at the most successful independent film ever made describes how the film’s distribution and profits were taken over by the mob, and how its director and actors were affected be the social and political powers that sought to use it as a tool for divergent agendas.

As the film’s NC-17 rating implies; prominent clips from “Deep Throat” show exactly what all the fuss was about.

Rated NC-17. 97 mins.
