Predictably melancholy, this is a documentary by Scott Gill about the most “famous” (as well as the most ordinary looking) of all porn stars—someone I frankly hadn't heard of before seeing this picture, though he's appeared in more than 1,600 skin flicks. Paradoxically, it's most interesting for how little it tells us about what Jeremy is actually like. Maybe there's a lesson here along the lines of, when you live by the sound bite you get bitten by the sound bite: the fragmented editing and interviewing creates a kind of mosaic that says everything and nothing at more or less the same intensity for all of the film's 79 minutes. I found it watchable and entertaining, but also opaque—and frighteningly familiar.
