Product Description:

A drama weaved around the tale of a director whose fortunes in the film industry have plummeted, INSERTS (1975) features early appearances from acclaimed actors Richard Dreyfuss and Bob Hoskins. Dreyfuss plays the unfortunate director who enjoyed a heyday in Hollywood during the silent era, but has failed to make a successful leap into the world of "talkies." Living a secluded life in his Hollywood home, the former star takes solace in a meager career in the adult film industry, which appears to have been undertaken as a substitute for his own sexual impotence.

Way ahead of its time, INSERTS unashamed use of graphic sex scenes, nudity, and drug-taking proved less than palatable for cinemagoers in the mid-'70s. It was slapped with an "X" rating by film censors, which meant commercial suicide and a largely fruitless search for venues which would actually show the film; it even ended up playing in adult movie theaters. But as the art house film circuit established itself, the film picked up a belated cult following, and is now fondly remembered as a brave and creative piece of filmmaking that helped pave the way for similarly themed movies such as BOOGIE NIGHTS and THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLINT, both of which were nominated for Academy Awards.
