About the Movie
A harrowing and engaging exploration into the life and art of the renowned author Hubert Selby Jr., who described himself as "a scream looking for a mouth." Selby, against all odds, reached international acclaim with his controversial novels.
For an author known for honesty, this feels dishonest
I couldn’t make it half way through. Instead of a moderately objective view of Selby, his life, and his work, we get testimonial after testimonial about how important and magnificent his stories are. And decidedly, he influenced many and his work has value, but it’s tough to listen to these folks stroking him off with their artspeak. Seems very anti-Selbyian.
