Filthy Gorgeous: The Extraordinary World of Bob Guccione

One of the movies Tiff will be showcasing this year is Filthy Gorgeous: The Extraordinary World of Bob Guccione.

In case any of you don't know, Bob Guccione was the publisher of (among many others magazines) Penthouse.

The movie boasts archival footage and home movie footage inter cut with an array of interview footage from those close to Bob. It tells the story of how Bob went from having a $400 million fortune (1 Billion in today's money), a $200 million art collection, and successful publisher of many magazines (Penthouse, Omni, Spin), to broke with the IRS chasing him for $100 Million in back taxes, and ultimately to his death at 79 of cancer in October of 2010.

Bob's love of art is showcased in the movie, and while his art collection includes includes works by Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Renoir, Degas and Van Gogh, his true love was his own artwork, and initially he was hoping to become an artist.

In addition to publishing various magazines, bob Guccione was famous for producing and self financing the 1979 movie Caligula. I remember watching it and thinking this is one of the coolest movies of all time, but it didn't meet with much critical success. Caligula goes around the entire movie banging his sister, and a syphilous ridden emperor Tiberius seems like one of the most sadistic people in history. In one scene he catches a guard drunk and ties his penis closed, then forces him to drink a barrel of wine... it didn't end well for the guy ;)

If you want to check out Filthy Gorgeous, you have 2 chances at the Tiff festival:
