“What's the point of having a First Amendment if you're not offensive?” - Larry Flynt
Media magnate, free-speech advocate, hustler, raconteur, pornographer and consummate believer of his own hype, Larry Flynt is the subject of this investigative documentary, which charts his frequent courting of controversy, his gubenatorial and presidential campaigns, and his unflinching devotion to the defence of free speech through his various turns in court and jail. Larry Flint features rarely seen archival footage, and in-depth interviews with the self-confessed “smut peddler”.
“Angel to First Amendment advocates and devil to moralists, Larry Flynt seems to be one of those guys with whom no moderation is possible.” - Variety
