Product Description

Sex. Drugs. Rock and Roll. The way it was. Los Angeles, 1973. The
Pretty Boys--a glam rock band on the verge of finishing their long
drawn out new album. One song left to record but the whole scene s gone haywire the lead guitar s strung out on heroin, the singer s new boyfriend is the kid supplying drugs from the record company and the rest of the band s quit, disgusted.

Ripped from stories about that time. Shot in lurid locations
frequented back in the day by bands like the Doors, Love, The Seeds. From Everett Lewis (Lucky Bastard, Luster). In his new film hot boys, heavy drugs and orgiastic sex show how creative
collaboration can crash along the jagged road of creation and destruction.

Customer Reviews

I fell asleep several times during this film.
Alicefan
Drugs give a person a very false view of their own world, and tend to make the world a very small place with a very inflated ego to accompany it.
Thierry
Production is well done, tasteful and thought provoking.

This DVD was def an impulse buy, I thought the premise of it taking place in the seventies was interesting, & the cover models/actors looked fine, but I honestly couldn't get through it without hitting the "FF" on the remote. Boring, contrived, not too well acted, and no attention to the era/genre detail make this a DVD I'
ll shelve for a long time before I let it resurface & be replayed.

"The Pretty Boys" is the eponymous and fictitious glam rock band which the film depicts, with a lead singer named "Pagan" (played by Dale Dymkosky who is also among the songwriters whose music is heard, and who also is the associate producer of the movie). This one is the most smoothly produced motion picture that director (and writer) Everett Lewis has made so far (collaborating this time with producer Robert Shulevitz), to say from having viewed most of Lewis` gay indie films. The males of the cast, nearly all of them, are such gorgeously gay sexual beings that they certainly deserve the camera`s love feast capturing them on film, whether by turns dressed, shirtless, nude, or nearly naked (though not quite with genitals full frontally in view).

Craig (played by handsome Eric Gorlow, who, unlike some of the other young men in the band, never has the opportunity to shed his clothes for the viewer`s delectation) is the lead guitarist of the group, who has composed the music to the final song and has recorded his track for the recording thereof which is in preparation. That song requires that Pagan, the band`s lyricist, write the words for it, but he is suffering from an artistic fallow spell, the source of the band`s woes in completing their recording.

Interesting tour of the lives of these folks and the music which was their lives....and the drugs...and the sex.
A weird trip to say the least.

Lots of hot eye candy.

The Pretty Boys is a (fictitious) rock band from ca. 1973. This is probably more 1969 than 1973, but who's counting? Every cliche is avoided or exploded, and every body is painfully gorgeous to see. At its center is an acknowledged, crazy genius lyricist who takes the music his lover has composed, and delivers Dionysus on an LP platter like Aphrodite on a clam shell. A Jewish rock and roll journalist helps frame the intellectual pretensions of their creativity.
This is the best movie about the sex-drugs-R&R era I have ever seen, lacking only real nudity to earn 5 stars.
Among the astonishing elements: (Spoiler alert) the placid attitude toward two murderous lesbians who seek to procure dead male rock stars (or their precious bodily fluids) for some magic rite they are planning. I thought this was turning into a serial killer movie. Recovering from being poisoned, a young man says, "You tried to kill me, right"? as though he were saying, "You wanted to go out on a date, right?"

I am a big fan of independent movies in general, and of Everett Lewis's films in particular. Without the demands of production companies judging how marketable every film made is, and how much money it will make for them, the director of an independent film can follow his/her dream
and really represent creative ideas in their original form. I understand that the actors who play in these films love working on them because of the freedom they have to create.

The Pretty Boys is a film about the hell of drug addiction. If ever there was a hell on earth, short of a war zone, addiction is it. So many people who fall victim to addiction are very sensitive souls, too sensitive for their own good sometimes, and without any ideas of how to deal with seeing things in the world that others don't experience or care about.

I have always liked the quirky character representations in Lewis's films and their is no shortage here. I imagine that there really are people in LA and other places in the music business ,that are really are like the characters represented here. Drugs give a person a very false view of their own world, and tend to make the world a very small place with a very inflated ego to accompany it. Any wonder that so many of them collapse and overdose.

In Lewis' films people really do talk like they do in real life, and express feelings directly without much fanfare. In this film, Lewis has been able to assemble a cast of characters that look and act like real people living out their lives as they really do, and using the vocabulary to coinside with their feelings.

One treat of Lewis' films has been a little junk to ogle. Would like to have seen that in this film as well, but sometimes suggesting it and not actually showing it, is interesting as well. Looking forward to see what lewis comes up with next.
