Al Goldstein, the publisher of the notorious hard-core pornographic magazine Screw, provides the subject for this documentary that is a low-brow answer to Milos Forman's glittery 1996 biopic of pornographer Larry Flynt, The People versus Larry Flynt.. Like Flynt, Goldstein helms a pornographic media empire and he considers himself an outlaw dedicated to upholding the First Amendment. Most telling about Goldstein, his profession and his regard for fans and peers is his comment that the porno industry is "a self-hating business of losers." In addition to interviews with Goldstein himself, the documentary also features interviews of his biggest fans most of whom aptly illustrate his comment.
