  What is it about Ron Jeremy that gives this star of more than 600 films such ... uh, staying power? After introducing the documentary Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy at the Dobie Theatre, the hirsute “Hedgehog” attracted a motley crew of fans at the Back Room: ball-capped fanboys, hipsters with shiny ties and Small Faces haircuts, woo girls in fuck-me boots, mullet heads, pencil-necked geeks, and at least one spunky grandmother. One zealous fan even flashed his APD badge for a Polaroid with Jeremy during the autograph session. During a blessedly brief bit of stand-up comedy onstage, Jeremy summed up his appeal: “I am living proof that anyone can get laid.”

King Corn
The film’s light hand, appealing style, and simple exposition make it an eminently watchable inquiry into the politics of food, public health, and the reasons why corn has become an ingredient in virtually everything we eat.
