SYNOPSIS
In the wake of cultural events like the Velvet Revolution and the fall of the Berlin wall came the rise of a newfound adult film industry in Eastern Europe. Since then, Czech actors in gay erotica and sites like Bel Ami have risen to iconic status. Markku Heikkinen s revelatory documentary All Boys shows us both sides of this nascent industry, which can be interpreted as either a sign of sexual liberation or as the exploitation of disenfranchised young men.

In a hyperconnected world where erotic media is never far out of reach, All Boys is required viewing. Heikkinen uses beautiful cinematography, historical research and devastatingly honest interviews to give us a rare look behind the scenes of the adult film production process. In particular, he follows the rise and fall of Aaron Hawke whose short career serves as a cautionary tale on the fleeting nature of stardom. Behind every seductive image is a story, and All Boys is intent on showing us how the story ends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Half a Boy and Half a Man December 11, 2010
Format:DVD
In the intriguing documentary "All Boys," film maker Markku Heikkinen travels to Prague and takes on the rise and stagnation of the Czech Boys gay porn phenomenon. While he talks to many in the scene, he concentrates on four particular men; Director Dan Komar, and three of his actors Rudy (stage name Aaron Hawke), Josef and Filip. While each of these men has a striking story, it is Aaron's that forms the film's emotional core.

Komar is an adult trapped in arrested development, surrounding himself with perpetual 18 to 20 year olds and making movies of them having sex. It's hard to tell if he's got any emotional investment in his charges; frankly, he is a blank slate emotionally. Josef is a boy who only wants to provide for his impoverished mom. Filip is a straight boy and a go-getter, who works three jobs and does porn for the extra money. These three stories seem to work on the supply and demand theory. Komar has money and jobs, the boys are broke and in desperate need. In a country that has just broken into uncharted territory, these fresh and innocent faces lunge right into an industry that would die without a constant conveyor belt of fresh names.

However, the dark side of this story is Rudu, who gets discovered sleeping under a bridge. He is the hot new kid on the DVD player, makes a load of fast money, and when his features no longer fit the Czech Boys mold, he doesn't have the maturity to move on. He goes from being a "superstar...like Jim Carrey" to a homeless drunk sleeping in a junkyard. From fresh new face to junkie in barely two years is a depressing arc to behold.

While Josef and Filip found their way out of porn and into a life after their twinky expiration dates, it is Rudu's face that stays with you.

2.0 out of 5 stars All or Nothing June 7, 2012
Format:DVD
A friend of mine suggested I watch this movie. As the old saying goes: "With friends like him, who needs enemies?" I don't think I've ever watched anything sadder.

"All Boys" is supposed to be a behind-the-scenes look into the gay porno world of Eastern Europe, especially Prague. Told mainly from the viewpoint of Dan Komar, you learn that the young men in Prague are usually sought out on the street to see if they want to make a fast buck. Some do it for the fun; most do it as way to simply survive. It was also shocking to find out these young men are only sought after if they are between the ages of 18 and 20--after that, you're considered too long in tooth, told nobody wants to look at you anymore, and basically that you're worthless.

This documentary is told mainly from the point of view of Dan Komar, a person who left sunny Florida in hopes of striking it big in the porno business. Although he did fairly well for a little while, it seems he's not the only person in the world who saw an opportunity of "striking it big" in this film industry. Towards the end of the story, he is shown having given up the porn business, per se, but now is trying to sell clothing that some of his "models" used to wear. How sad is that? The film also goes into some detail about his relationship--if you can call it that--with one of his fresh faces. His "screen name" was Aaron Hawke. You see Aaron interviewed in the beginning, and you would think he has the world at his fingertips, only to see him interviewed in the end sleeping on a mattress in a junkyard, strung out on booze and pills.

What really shocked me was the fact that some of these young men's mothers know what they are doing; they just turn a blind eye because they know how difficult it is to make a living.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BOTHER March 7, 2011
Format:DVD
This was a great waste of money. I bought it on impulse and was very disappointed. There is a warning for graphic nudity on it and everything is blurred out apart from a brief glimpse of straight sex on a tv screen that these guys are using to get hard. There is nothing sexy or even particularly informative about this documentary. The film makers clearly couldn't get access to the good quality porn makers in Europe so went with the low rent ones.
