Kano: An American and His Harem

Documentary (2010) 80 minutes ~ Color
Theres something brave in how Monster Jimenez portrays Victor Pearson, an Vietnam War veteran living in the Philippines with a harem of wives and mistresses, with hardly any judgment. Pearson alone is a fascinating character with his mug that resembles Harvey Keitels, and a voice and demeanor that is not unlike Edward Robinsons in many of his films. His many mistresses, whose personalities and motivations are as varied as Pearsons taste in women, tell their stories with disarming eagerness, putting a sense of normalcy to the unusual affairs of Pearson. Jimenez has crafted that rare documentary about sexual deviants that humanizes not only the victims but also the monster.
