""Knockout"

Into the Ring

Amos Lassen

Joe Oppedisano is a hyper erotic photographer in the tradition of Tom of Finland and Colt. He is internationally known and internationally praised for his aggressive masculine style of photography. Now we have him on DVD from Greenwood Cooper. "Knockout" takes us inside the ring with seven uninhibited fighters and we don't just go to the ring but to the locker room as well. The men are gorgeous and they bar no holds.
"Knockout" was filmed at New York's world famous Gleason's Gym and shot by Tony Sellari in the Oppedisano style. The raw and masculine men are seven brawlers who are backed by the electric music supervised by Bill Coleman. The movie combines still shots with wrestling scenes. Oppedisano says that the movie shows us "something you can't get in a book or a calendar or any still two-dimensional photograph--the movement, the visceral feeling, the idea behind the `narrative', the moment-to-moment inspirations, the give-and-take with the models. Seeing the guys sweating and showing off in this film undoubtedly provides an extra dimension to the photographs". It also gives us a peek into the life of the amazingly talented photographer.
The music is wonderful as it rocks and strengthens the imagery of the film; it is easy to see how Oppedisano is one of the most talked about photographer working today. The combination of beautiful men, great music and fantastic photography makes this a film that you do not want to miss.

"I know homoerotic when I see it and this is it. "Knockout" is one of the best examples I've seen since "Playroom" - "Father & Son" - and the last 20 minutes of "Descent" - to name a few. If you're looking for waxed Abercrombie twinks you will not like this. But if you appreciate rough and tough looking - street smart men that workout at Gleason's in Brooklyn, NY then you'll enjoy this hour in your life. The filming of Joe Oppedisano's photo shoot oozes with testosterone. One of my favorite scenes is with the two Peterson brothers from Florida. Tyler, 30 and Luke, 22. Luke is giving his big bro a buzz cut that is remarkable. His large hands gently touching Tyler's neck shows the brotherly bond between them. I also recognized "Bruno" from his Colt Studio days. He has aged v-e-r-y well. Joe has put together a piece of art that does exactly what he intended it to do. I'm satisfied."
