Film description

Friedman and Epstein are experts when it comes to violating America’s sense of morality. Their latest film is the electrifying story of the woman with the deepest throat in the history of pop culture. Lovelace follows the conventions of biographical cinema, but it does so in an unusually sexy way. The most interesting thing about Friedman and Epstein's film, however, is its tendency to undermine its attractiveness. Lovelace has the look of a cruel parody of a classic fairy tale. The eponymous heroine is not a princess, but rather a slave, and her prince in shining armor turns out to be, in reality, a redneck with a mustache. Much like in the cult hit Boogie Nights, we also find a hard-hitting portrait of the 1970s porn industry. According to the directors’ vision, adult films are just as full of misogyny and hypocrisy as  the family home that Linda Lovelace ran away from as a young girl.
