STRIKE A POSE
(Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan; 2016; US; 83 min)
Dare to express yourself anew in this heartwarming update on Madonna’s 1990 Blond Ambition Tour backup dancers, showcased in the iconic documentary TRUTH OR DARE. Those seven young men have lived to tell, 25 years later, their wonderfully funny and sometimes bitterly emotional memories and insights, touching on issues such as AIDS, coming out, addiction, and the price of fame. With surprising literal and figurative twists and turns[srw1] , the dancers (six gay, one straight) open their hearts once more. Fueled by a nostalgic look at the tour and the original film’s “controversies” (the infamous gay kissing scene), and updated with poetic dance vignettes and a poignant score, STRIKE A POSE is a real ray of light.
