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
Rotten: Schrader really isn't interested in Crane except as the straw man for his moral lessons about sin and sexuality and the nature of celebrity.
Fresh: Admirably unconventional film.
Fresh: The emptiness of serial seductions has never been painted in starker colors. And the message of Auto Focus stings and sticks with you.
Fresh: It's no fun to watch, but there's no denying the power of its point of view, of its two lead performances and of its claim to attention as an evocation of recent social history.
i never would of thought bob crane lived such a life that was so twisted
i grew up watching hogan's heros and was floored when i saw how he lived his life behind the cameras
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.
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!
