    It's a documentary about the importance of image is gay culture. It's really insightful and of course full of gorgeous men.

    I saw it on Netflix streaming and really liked it. Definitely worth a look if you like documentaries.

    I know some of the guys featured in it, one of them lives in my building. It's all smoke and mirrors.

    I saw it about a year ago. Quite telling abou the role of body image, similar to how The Butch Factor dealt with stereotypes and breaking stereotypes of gay men from within and outside of the gay community.

    Interesting insighs from those intervewed in the pic. Sad story about the guy who is suffering the long-term effecs of steroid use.

    I just watched it the other day on Netflix. There were some points to be made. But the Weho boys...they call each other fat??? And something someone said like "so we can all go out and be attractive together". So vapid! icon_rolleyes.gif

    have this on dvd...the thing is some of these guys refuse to grow up. They are treating gay as an extended adolescence. At some point you need to stop hitting the bars and circuit parties every weekend and find other outlets that do not revolve around looking good, comparing yourself to others and getting validation. Sure you can live your life anyway you want to but then no sympathy for you when you start bitching about it and why you are growing old and have no one to come home to or turn 60 and have no life.

    What do you mean by "it's all smoke and mirrors?"

    Atlanta is a very clicky town and those guys run in their cliques, but theyre most definitely not "local celebrities." I'm not sure how old that documentary is, but many of them are not as big and muscular as they seem to be.

    I did watch it and I recognized Marc Williams in it. It was amusing because he was using a different name, but you can't really miss that face (or ass) anywhere in a video. icon_lol.gif

    It didn't seem to have good reviews. So I passed the opportunity of watching it.

    it's fine, but it only scratches the surface, not very insightful
