Rated X (2000)

Review

Rated X

An interesting subject gets a rather shoddy treatment at the hands of Emilio Estevez. Here we have the story of porn pioneers the Mitchell brothers (who put together Behind the Green Door, launching the career of Marilyn Chambers) who fought the mob, opened the famed O’Farrell theater in San Francisco, and tried to kill each other. You’ll have to see the movie to find out which one succeeded (or, you know, like, read about it somewhere else). Awfully reminiscent of The People vs. Larry Flynt. Based on the true story chronicled in the book X-Rated.

Absolutely criminal.
