Mope ★★★

Mope is a film that begins as a dark comedy about trying to make it in the porn industry, before taking a much darker turn in the third act. Much of the film exposes many of the ugly truths about the adult industry, particularly through an extended cameo by David Arquette as porn director Rocket, who wants Steve and Tom to perform with racial stereotypes. Ultimately, I would say that Mope is almost entirely about its dark and violent ending, however, I would be hard-pressed to say whether or not the film that comes before truly earns the place where it ends up.
