Movie 'Filth City' inspired by Rob Ford crack video

TORONTO - Rob Ford probably would have laughed his head off. But not everybody is laughing.

The movie poster for the movie, Filth City, shows a Rob Ford look-a-like, named Mayor Hogg, smoking a pipe under a banner which says: “The crime rate is high, so is the mayor.”

Inspired by the former mayor’s crack scandal, it’s a new Canadian-produced movie, which will premier March 25 at the Scotiabank Theatre. The movie trailer boasts it was “inspired by true” events and has a classic line: “There’s a video of the mayor smoking crack.”

It’s an exaggerated story line with guns and shootings but the part about a crack video on a cellphone certainly is not make believe.

His widow doubts Ford, who died of cancer, would have cared.

“I don’t think so,” said Renata Ford Tuesday night after a trailer of Filth City appeared. “There were so many videos out there that were not good that I doubt this one would make a difference.”

What could ever top the “crack smoking” video? But she was not surprised at the outrage expressed by Rob’s brother, former city councillor Doug Ford.

“He is always so protective of Rob. That’s Doug.”

Doug Ford told the Toronto Sun the movie was made by “scumbags” who are “taking advantage of someone who was ill for profit” and “who misrepresented who Rob was and what did happen.”



Councillor Michael Ford, who followed in both Rob and Doug’s footsteps in Ward 2, called the movie “sickening.”

Doug’s point was while Rob had personal demons, he also did overcome them and “I am very proud of him.”

He encouraged people to not support the movie.

While Renata appreciates Doug’s reaction, she won’t get upset over the trivial. “It has been very hard,” she said of dealing with her husband’s March 2016 death.

Still, she’ll make sure her kids, Stephanie and Dougie, don’t see the movie.

Even if they see it, Renata added, “it will not influence their love for their father.”

...says the guy who is a scumbag and took advantage of his own brother for years.

Good ol Dougie who has dined out on "misrepresenting who Rob is/was and lying about what did happen"

Never known such an idiot .

Yeah, we could have had that bathhouse star, George Smitherman, instead, and then we'd have a Cocksucker's Day every May, just as the forsythia comes out. And gawd only knows what else.

"Green energy" was only one of his legacies. Remember the air ambulance fiasco? Even his own 'bottom' ... er ... husband ... decided it was better to kill himself than to go on.

The people choose from the choices given them. They picked the better man.

Wow....just wow. Your homophobia is rather telling.

Do you wide stance and tap your foot in public washrooms?

Movie based on Rob Ford's crack scandal made by 'scumbags' says Doug Ford

Doug Ford is the calling the makers of an outlandish dark comedy about his late brother’s crack video scandal “scumbags.”

In an interview with CityNews on Tuesday night, Ford also called the timing of the film’s release — just days after the first anniversary of Rob Ford’s death — “tasteless.”

Ford believes the filmmakers are exploiting the late mayor’s well documented drug problem.

“We all know he had an issue,” Doug said. “He went and got help for that issue and we’re proud of it. And anyone who wants to make a profit of someone else’s illness – well, It’s unfortunate for them.”

The poster for the film, titled Filth City, includes a depiction of a mayor toting an assault rifle with a crack pipe in his mouth. The poster reads: “The crime rate is high. So is the mayor.”

FordMovie

The film, directed by Andy King, and written by King and Danny Polishchuk will debut on March 25 at 8 p.m., when it closes out the Canadian Film Fest at Scotiabank Theatre. Ford died on March 22, 2016 after a battle with cancer.

Actor Pat Thornton plays Tom Hogg, described in a synopsis of the film as “a drug-addicted mayor fighting for re-election.” The synopsis adds that after he’s caught on tape smoking crack, “he’ll do almost anything to keep it out of the wrong hands.”



Founder of the Canadian Film Fest, Bern Euler, believes the film will be a “crowd-pleaser” and says it shouldn’t be taken too seriously.

“While it is based on Rob Ford, it is a comedy,” he said. “At the end of the day this is a really entertaining movie
