Bob Crane

If you havnt seen the movie Auto Focus starring Greg Kinnear you should, its a moody bio-pic whose subject is Bob Crane.

Mr Crane certainly wasnt the first to record his sexual conquests, nor the first tragic celebrity who was, in one aspect a victim of his times.

The movie is a subtle reminder of how parochial attitudes shape our impulses, motivations, and reactions. Certainly if circumstances were different and there was no “shame” in being curious or enthusiastic about sex, perhaps Mr Crane might have had a different life altogether.
