If guilty, O. Simpson will simply be one more jealous bastard who gave into psychotic blood lust. Yet his story hangs over us with larger-than-life gloom, evoking our collective spiritual state — our grim voyeurism, our loss of faith — as surely as any event since the Kennedy assassination. Yet the Bobbitt story emerged as a kind of national myth waiting to happen, a tabloid feminist parable for the era of the dwindling white male. In the dream life of the nation, it was the bloody culmination of a year war: for women, the ultimate payback; for men, the ultimate nightmare. Portraying himself in this mind-bendingly shameless hardcore docudrama, John Wayne Bobbitt — girlfriend beater, ex-Marine, martyr, surgical miracle, and now porn star — lies in a hospital bed, reenacting his recovery from the event that made him the most famous tabloid freak in America. How does it look? Bobbitt refused — a smart move, it turns out. Yet in its sleazebucket way what this film is selling is the spectacle of resurrection, of the white male triumphant.

While Gallo kept a relatively low profile creating a foundation in , the Lorena Gallo Foundation , dedicated to the prevention of domestic violence; speaking at universities and events when called upon; and otherwise living a rather quiet, unassuming life in Gainesville, Fla. He and Gallo officially divorced two years later, in After police officers famously found his severed penis in a grassy lot across from a 7-Eleven in Manassas, Va. He also attempted to try his hand at music, forming a rock band, the boldly named Severed Parts, in hopes of generating some money to pay off his growing medical and legal bills. The band failed to take off and ultimately disbanded. At one point, he even made some extra cash autographing steak knives.
