Variety | 'Strike A Pose' Review


A frank on-and-off-stage record of Madonna’s Blond Ambition World Tour, 1991’s “Truth or Dare” invited controversy for numerous reasons — not least the conspicuously out-and-proud image presented by her male dancers, who underlined a sex-positive, diversity-embracing message many weren’t quite ready for at the height of the AIDS epidemic. A quarter-century later, a new documentary from directors Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan, “Strike a Pose,” checks back in with the surviving performers, weighing both the iconic value the original film imbued them with as representatives of the gay community, and their individual struggles afterward.

The story is too old to be commented.
