It is an uncommonly ambitious, devastating, absurd Scorsese-esque look at the rise and fall of a small enclave of pornographers living in the San Fernando Valley in the late ’70s and early ’80s. Specifically, it’s a 1:11 audio rip of “Feel The Heat,” the awesomely terrible song from Boogie Nights that Mark Wahlberg and John C.
