Motion Picture Purgatory: Auto Focus

This week Trembles takes us a little off the beaten path into a true tale of sex addiction and murder: Paul Schrader’s 2002 Auto Focus starring Greg Kinnear as TV star Bob Crane and Willem Dafoe as his video technician buddy John Carpenter (nope, not director John Carpenter of Halloween fame, but rather a sleazy swinger who gets credit for turning Crane into a sex addict).

For those unfamiliar with the story, Crane, star of 1960’s TV series “Hogan’s Heroes”, dove into the freewheeling spirit of the 60s and 70s with relish, having affairs with numerous women and videotaping his exploits with Carpenter’s help. He was murdered in a Scottsdale, Arizona, motel room in 1978, a crime that remains officially unsolved to this day.
