Bruce LaBruce teams up with photographer Rick Castro in a wild re-imagining of Sunset Boulevard, set in 90’s Santa Monica. Anthropologist Jurgen Anger heads to LA to research hustling as a social phenomenon, but after spotting angel-faced hustler Montgomery Ward, he falls hopelessly in love.
Co-written, co-directed and co-starring underground auteur Bruce LaBruce, this homage to Hollywood’s Golden Age—a postmodern, pornographic revision of Billy Wilder’s _Sunset Boulevard—is a bizarre, beguiling avant-garde oddity. LaBruce’s infamous breakthrough, and a classic of 90’s queer cinema.
