Auto Focus is a 2002 biographical film based on the life of American actor Bob Crane, who is famous for portraying Colonel Hogan on the 1960s television sitcom Hogan's Heroes. Bob Crane (Greg Kinnear) is a charismatic, straight-laced, popular disc jockey who is married to his high school sweetheart Anne (Rita Wilson), with whom he has three children. After he obtains the lead role in Hogan's Heroes, he is blessed with an entirely new level of fame and fortune. However, his life soon starts to go into a downward spiral when he befriends electronics distributor John Carpenter (Willem Dafoe), who introduces him to a seedy underworld of pornography. By using VTRs (video tape recorders), which were the latest innovation in technology at the time, Bob and John are able to make movies of their sexual exploits with random women. As Bob becomes obsessed with sex, his career and personal life are both negatively affected, leading to a tragic conclusion.
