Boasts as its subject one of the most fascinating and outlandish cult figures imaginable, which is why it's such a disappointment that the film itself is pretty lackluster. Great interviews with Marins and his collaborators relating their rough and tumble approach to filmmaking; but at 65 minutes it just never digs deep enough. Fans of Marins will find a lot to appreciate, but his lurid life and career deserve more.
