F U C K
The Film That Dare Not Speak Its Name
The long-awaited FUCK film -- in which your humble editor appears as one
of the (in)famous folks interviewed -- was released theatrically by THINKfilm in
New York City and Los Angeles on Nov. 10, 2006, and then continued across the country.
It will later be shown on cable TV ("Showtime" channel) and has been available
on DVD since February 13, 2007. You can find out more at www.fourletterfilm.com,

The "new, improved" site for this documentary is fuckin' awful! With
a modem connection (dial-up speed 45.3 K), it takes 85 seconds just to load the first
letter (F) of the word FUCK. That's about six (6) minutes for the simple
four-letter word FUCK to show up on your monitor. This sucks! If you don't
have a superfast Internet connection, don't even bother clicking on the above link.
I told Steve Anderson about their shitty new site and suggested that another site
for dial-up modems be established or that the previous one (854 K for the Index page)
be made accessible again.
Whoever that high-speed geek was who designed this idiotic, excruciatingly slow-loading
"improved" site: Read "Web Page Design 101," especially chapter

Cause Interested Folks to Yell "Fuck this shit!" and Click Off.

infamous f-word and its impact on popular culture, politics, censorship, and the
First Amendment. In the past year, this documentary has screened to great acclaim
and sold-out shows at over thirty film festivals worldwide, and the audiences have

times in 93 minutes, for an average of more than 8.8 "fucks" per minute.

a visual record of the number of appearances of the word both verbally and visually
in the film.
- "Four out of five fornicators surveyed agree: Fuck rocks. Steve Anderson's
enlightening examination into the history and usage of the English language's most
forceful and utilitarian vulgarity is a hilarious and often eye-opening piece of
filmmaking." -- Austin Chronicle
- "Its very mention drives certain people into spasms of righteous indignation."
- "Essential viewing for linguists and guttermouths alike." -- San
Francisco Bay Guardian
- "Outrageously funny; the snappy pace never sags ... everything you ever
wanted to know about the world's favorite epithet." -- Twitch.com
- "Brilliantly entertaining and so meticulously put together on every possible
level ... Fuck covers so much ground and does it with such a blazon sense
of humor and irony in its 90 minutes that you wish it would just go on forever."
