This was the story of Bob Crane, of Hogan's Heroes fame who, underneath his charm and good looks led a life of sexual addiction and depravity. Greg Kinnear did an excellent job as Crane and Willem Dafoe as his friend, Carpenter (who introduces him to the world of sleaze) was downright creepy. I liked the look of the film, it started out bright, almost innocent looking, and by the end was dark and grainy, kind of like his life.

I really had a hard time sympathizing with him, I thought he was a hypocrite and very selfish. He did want to get out of the lifestyle before the end of his life, but I'm not sure how sincere he was.
