Movie Trailer: The Last Days Of Joe Blow

By Mike Everleth ⋅ July 11, 2013

The end of a sexy era is chronicled in Richard Wolstencroft‘s intimate documentary The Last Days of Joe Blow. Michael Tierney was a struggling Hollywood filmmaker and actor who transformed himself into the male adult film star “Joe Blow,” living the good life until the Internet killed his industry and his profession.

Tierney, the nephew of iconic tough guy actor Lawrence Tierney (Reservoir Dogs, Prizzi’s Honor), wrote, directed and starred in the indie film Evicted before moving into adult films “looking for adventure,” as he says in the trailer above. Tierney further intimates that his career choice led him into some dark territory that he decides to ultimately abandon — if he can truly leave that lifestyle.

The Last Days of Joe Blow recently had its World Premiere at the 16th annual Revelation Perth International Film Festival on July 8 and will be making the festival rounds before its full release.

In related news, Wolstencroft has announced that his brilliant adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Beautiful and Damned will be released on DVD in October. More details on that to follow. The Underground Film Journal reviewed The Beautiful and Damned, calling it “an originally terrifying vision of rampant amorality.”
