Synopsis

A humorous, no-holds-barred autobiographical film about filmmaker (not novelist) Philip B. Roth's former career as a sex worker and his relationship with his uproarious Jewish family. From graphic erotic massages to an interview with his 81-year-old grandmother, Roth gives a well-rounded explanation of the question, "What's a nice Jewish boy like you doing in a life like this?" Featuring rare footage of German filmmaker Rosa Von Praunheim, not so rare footage of sexual performance artist Annie Sprinkle, and Yiddish torch singer Nehama Lifshitz wailing on the soundtrack.
