Movie Haiku:Ensemble piece tracing the rise & fall of a pornography star. Succeeds on multiple levels. Captures the look & feel of a decade (75 - 85). Filled with tenderness for outwardly repellent characters each of whom becomes extraordinarily real & touchingly familiar. Beware: Raw & raunchy, befitting the milieu described.
