Starring: Greg Kinnear, Willem Dafoe, Rita Wilson, Maria Bello
Director: Paul Schrader

Paul Schrader’s film, Autofocus, is the story of Bob Crane (played by Greg Kinnear), who had the title character in the hit TV series, “Hogan’s Heroes” in the late 1960’s. The interesting thing about the real-life story of Bob Crane is the fact that he was brutally murdered in 1978 by a killer who was never convicted, even though everyone knew who it was. The movie examines how fame and fortune in Hollywood can turn someone’s life upside down – in this case, by over-feeding a man’s sex-obsession to the point of self-destruction.
