Movie Reviews

Important, Funny and powerful documentary.
01/23/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The film explores Sex and Sexuality in the Lives of 15 Gay Men. From ages 19-72, the men interviewed run the gammut from pastor to porn star to actvist to writer to slut. The film opened at the 1993 Berlin Intl film Festival where it took the audience award for BEST GAY FILM. The film has played around the world and now is on video with the DVD to come out in the Spring'99 distributed by Water Bearer Films.Director Marc Huestis and Co-Producer Lawrence Helman have constructed a fine document of the state of affairs of gay men in the early '90's. The film interweaves graphic scenes from archival porn to illustrate some of the subjects being described. Stunning visually and it is "way fun" to boot."
SEX IS ... Is Sex Positive
J. Michael Click | Fort Worth, Texas United States | 01/14/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A seminal (pardon the pun) documentary that explores the many facets of sex in the lives of 15 very diverse gay men. By turns thoughtful, poignant, raunchy, and extremely funny, the film touches on such weighty subjects as coming out, first encounters, dating, love, tricking, fetishism, racism, aging, loss, disease and responsibility ... but never does it deviate from delivering a very welcome celebratory and sex-positive message. In a wickedly funny twist, director Marc Huestis (who also appears on-camera as one of the interviewees) has dedicated the film to homophobic politico Jesse Helms, whose fumbling rantings are cleverly intercut with archival porn footage depicting the very acts he is decrying. Produced with obvious care and skill, the film remains as fresh and timely today as it did when it first premiered in 1993. The DVD from Water Bearer Films offers a sharp, clean transfer. ... a great conversation-starter that begs to be watched and discussed with people you care about."
