All Male, All Nude 2017
Documentary | 5 December 2017 (USA)
Journey into the world of male strippers at America’s only all nude gay strip club located in the heart of the Bible Belt and the unique family unit it engenders.
To me all this movie was about was BEEFCAKE. Shot in Atlanta, GA,. at an all-male strip club (“Swinging Richards”), “All Male; All Nude” doesn’t begin to touch on anything.
You are introduced to several of the dancers. Most would have you believe they are straight, but we all know better… . I applaud the men who were not ashamed of what they do, just as I would applaud any woman who is a stripper. I’ve always said that if you make your money honestly, who gives a crap HOW you make it?! Some of the strippers are big-time hits, and I can see why. Their personalities (literally) are as big as the room they dance in. One guy (whose stage name is Pierce) earned enough money to put him through medical school! However, it is almost laugh-out-loud funny to hear some of the dancers whine about being viewed as “sex objects.” Really? You dance completely nude (thrusting your junk in someone’s face) and YOU feel like a sex object?
My biggest problem, however, was I just didn’t think the movie tried to anything but scratch the surface of this business. There are plenty “documentaries” about female stripping, but this is the first one I’ve seen that delved into all nude male stripping. Barely coming in at over an hour, many of the scenes are repeated. Guess these at-peace-with-themselves strippers didn’t have near as much to say as the director thought. The ending is kind of sad, but I won’t spoil it for you here.
Unrated and contains complete frontal male nudity, sexual situations, and language. “All Male, All Nude” didn’t go anywhere near where it could have gone. This is pretty tame considering the subject matter.
