Dimitri The Lover Movie Trailer Released

Dimitri the Lover, perhaps the most misogynistic, attention-seeking, and loathed "man" in Toronto, is going to be the focus of a documentary film produced by Hollywood's Brad Goodman (known for his work on Sacha Baron Cohen's mockumentaries Borat and Brüno).

Yesterday, a teaser version of the movie trailer was announced via Dimitri's Twitter. A former student under Dimitri (who has since stopped attending meetings and prefers to remain anonymous) wrote us:

"It's very disturbing. He mocks all the misogynistic, criminal things he has ever done. I don't know how any Hollywood producer with morality could ever promote this project. But then again, Mr. Goodman worked on Bruno, Borat, and Religulous. He obviously has no morals."

While this isn't the first time a film has been made about Dimitri, it is the first time his story is likely going to get wide international release beyond the web.

Are you looking forward to this film? Will you pay to watch it? Does it in any way tarnish Toronto's image? Has Dimitri gotten fat?

Let us know how you feel about Dimitri, his Toronto Real Men seminars (where men can "learn the secret to quickly seducing cold, uptight, sexually repressed local sluts"), and the idea of a widely distributed movie about his methods.

Want to know more about the man and his messed up methods? Almost two years ago, two blogTO writers covertly attended one of his meetings. Be sure to check out the exposé.
