RUN RUN IT’S HIM is a personal feature length autobiographical documentary, which explores, in Intimate detail, filmmaker Matthew Pollack’s addiction to pornography and how it’s warped his understanding of women and dominated his personal relationships.
The film finds Matthew wondering if he’s been wasting his life? He’s 29 years old with 4 memberships to adult video stores, 55 tapes of compiled porn, and absolutely nothing to show for it: no girlfriend, no ambition, only a big stack of porn. The film itself becomes an act of exploration, of cleansing. Shot over the course of 7 years, RUN RUN IT’S HIM follows Matthew as he interviews his parents, ex-girlfriends, female acquaintances, and a fellow porn connoisseur, struggling to figure out what went wrong before it’s too late.
“Matthew, your mother and I were deeply disturbed by your movie.” – Herbert Pollack, Father of Matthew Pollack.
