About this movie

Mikey Saber (a magnetic Simon Rex) - charismatic con man and washed up porn star - plots his return to the big time from small-town Texas in this wild, fiercely funny portrait of an American hustler and a hometown that barely tolerates him.

The main character is an irresponsible jerk who was a porn actor in California before returning to Texas. His decision to try to get his girlfriend Strawberry (the reason for the unappealing photo of him in a doughnut, which is not funny or effective at all) into the porn industry in California is not funny or amusing. He has a good heart, but he is manipulative and there is a calculating aspect to him that is not amusing at all.

Most won't like it. Having said that, if you're into character development films (There Will Be Blood) or films about the American underclass (I, Toyna), you might just love this film like I did. The first half is slow but once it gets going, it's a great ride.

The reviews here are vehemently upsetting to say the least. I suppose a more refined pallet may be needed. Howbeit, what a MOVIE! Leave it to Sean Baker to completely blow you away with an odd tale of a narcissistic douche— that’s in reality a Trojan inundated with provocative underlying themes.
