The ugliest and least appetizing portion of the film depicted one of the young men from the "hotel" going to a sex party with a group of older men who were sucking on pipefulls of crystal meth like it was their last gasp for oxygen. I am loathe to be judgemental of people's lifestyle choices, but I found this part of the film to be very disturbing, especially in light of the fact that one of the young participants from the earlier film had died from a combination of crystal meth and heroin.
Walking a fine line between pathos and humor, the older porn stars first chronicled in Hick's initial film, emerge as older, somewhat different people than they were seven years earlier.Read more ›
I loved it. It gives a humane portrait of the gay porn actors and sometimes their families. People should not criticize these people because they work hard in the gay film industry. It is better than crime!!!! I loved this movie and all the actors in it.
The only shred of normalcy (such that it is for a porn actor) & being level headed was Cole Tucker. I got the impression from him that he did porn because it was just something he wanted to do, enjoyed doing, and yet had no illusion that it was a gateway to better things. Everyone else in the film just struck me as pathetic.
This video is completely oblivious of the current state of the industry and focuses instead on revisiting performers from the 90s (and their mothers! seriously!) in a sort of "where are they now?" look at the ones not dead from HIV and drugs.
Not at all surprisingly, none of the survivors from 90s porn that this video visits are doing anything very interesting. Nor are porn stars known for their intellect, so it is hardly a shock that none have anything fascinating or even mildly insightful to say, either.
One thing this video does succeed at is giving you the feeling you need to take a shower much like you used to get if you ducked into a XXX bookstore in the 90s. It's got that vibe down perfectly.
Otherwise, this rental is a rip off that was over-hyped and under-delivered. I'd like my money back, please.
