About the Movie

Bob Crane (Kinnear) became well known as the star of the hit comedy series "Hogan's Heroes." With an abundance of fame, wealth and success, Crane dove headfirst into the darker, destructive side of the celebrity lifestyle. He eventually teamed up with a video technician (Dafoe) who helped him to systematically document his copious sexploits with beautiful young women. But when the fast living and hard loving got out of control, the end result was a brutal murder that remains one of the most scandalous unsolved mysteries in Hollywood history.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The movie's themes are aptly captured in the double entendre of the title, suggesting both Crane's narcissism and the video technology that abets it...a lot of Auto Focus is coolly funny--it's a slyly satiric comedy of '60s manners. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Mar 12, 2018

Fresh: Kinnear's performance is a career-defining revelation. – Jami Bernard, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Admirably unconventional film. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: It never answers the key question: Why should we care? – Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008

Not bad.

I saw this movie a long time ago. I'm glad it's on itunes. Bob Crane had a really twisted life style and this film documents it very well.

Great Movie

Greg Kinnear is excellent in this movie. Kurt Fuller has COL Klink spot on. If you grew up watching Hogan's Hero's this is a must see. Great Movie!


A great and disturbing film, but I would like to rent not but iTunes.
