Super 8 and a half 1993
Unrated | 1h 39min | Drama | 28 April 1995 (USA)
A down-on-his-luck adult film star sees a chance to make a comeback via a lesbian documentary film-maker, but she is exploiting him to get financial backing for her pet project.
Being the first Bruce La Bruce movie I have ever seen, I was quite intrigued to see “Super 8 & 1/2.” The movie is overlong, but does have some very amusing bits mixed in with the graphic sex and general weirdness. Bruce is the big star of the movie, but the Wednesday characters are also quite fun, and the cameos by Scott Thompson, Richard Kern, and Vaginal Cream Davis are fun. A must see for anyone familiar with Bruce’s writing in Exclaim magazine (though it helps to be open-minded too).
