Strike a Pose
First screened in October 2016
Directors: Ester Gould and Reijer Zwann. Documentary about the dancers who accompanied Madonna on her Blonde Ambition Tour in the early 1990s. Interview subjects include Luis Camacho, Oliver Crumes, Carlton Wilborn, Kevin Alexander Stea, Salim Gauwloos, and Jose Xtravaganza.

Twitter Capsule: Meaningful to fans, and to the subjects. Moving tribute to living with HIV and surviving bad years. Otherwise? Fine.

VOR:   The documentary gives a voice in pretty specific microcosm to an important generation of queer men. But it doesn't press hard or venture far.
