Larry Flynt: The Right to Be Left Alone (2007)

*** (out of 4)

Documentary covering the career of Hustler creator Larry Flynt starts off very good but slowly turns into yet another anti-Bush piece. The film starts off with Flynt discussing various aspects of his life ranging from his fight for freedom of speech to Jerry Falwell and the death of his wife due to AIDS. If you've seen The People vs. Larry Flynt then most of the topics here are going to be familiar but Flynt's story is so American that you can't help but be entertained by his battle for the right to be obscene. Flynt is also interesting to listen to and that's true here as he reflects on earlier moments of his life. I've always gotten a kick out of his battles with Falwell and the film has various interview clips from their past. It's also worth noting that Flynt still gets emotional when discussing the death of his wife. Sadly the second half of the film deals with Flynt's opinion on George Bush, which is obviously negative. There's no problem with pointing this out but the documentary is just beating a horse that has been dead for many years now.
