Wonderland

Val Kilmer is magnetic as John Holmes, the porn giant who died of AIDS in 1988. But director and co-writer James Cox is less interested in Holmes' big dick, his wife (Lisa Kudrow) and his teen lover (Kate Bosworth) than in Holmes' involvement in a grisly drug-related murder spree in 1981. That means character gets sacrificed for just another true-crime drama.
