FULL SYNOPSIS

Whether you love him or you hate him, there's no denying that controversial Hustler Magazine published Larry Flynt is one of the most outspoken free speech advocates in modern times. In Flynt's opinion, the fundamental rights of average Americans are slowly being stripped away, and he isn't afraid to name names when it comes to who's doing the stripping. By drawing on rarely seen documentary and television footage, filmmaker Joan Brooker-Marks offers an expansive overview of Flynt's landmark Supreme Court case, his much-publicized entanglement with adulterous televangelist Jerry Falwell, the jail sentence he received for refusing to divulge his source for incriminating tapes detailing the FBI's entrapment of John DeLorean, and his campaign runs for both governor of California and President of the United States. Additionally, Brooker-Marks examines Flynt's frequent clashes with the Bush administration - including his successful lawsuit against Donald Rumsfeld and the Pentagon - as well as the assassination attempt that left him paralyzed and his first wife's valiant struggle with AIDS in a series of unguarded and deeply personal interviews. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
