1981 · United States - Blake Edwards
The story is a satire of the film industry and Hollywood society. The main character, Felix Farmer, is a phenomenally successful producer-director who has just made the first flop of his career, to the dismay of the studio and the loss of his own sanity. Felix attempts suicide several times, the first being when he tries to die of carbon monoxide poisoning in his car, only to have it slip into gear and drive through the side of his beach house. Thereafter he spends most of the time heavily sedated while his friends and hangers-on occupy his beach house. The occupation leads to a party which degenerates into an orgy. Felix steals a gun from a police officer member of the party and tries to shoot himself in the middle of the party, at which point he is embraced (fellatio) by a topless woman and suddenly realizes what was missing from his movie.
