Beefcake, 1 DVD, 93 minutes
L'histoire vraie de Bob Mizer, le fondateur de l'Athletic Model Guild, une compagnie qui produisait des photos d'hommes nus musclés pour des magazines. Composé à la fois de fiction, de documents d'archives et d'interviews des modèles de l'époque, ce film est un mélange unique, provocant, excitant, et surtout, un formidable appel à la tolérance.

y a une certaine époque, pas si lointaine, l'homosexualité était interdite, et la nudité aussi!

Bob Mizer's life AND his lifetime pursuit of capturing male beauty, beginning with the "photo sessions" he staged as a child in his own attic,
when he recreated scenes of naked "Romans", lounging on his mother's wedding gown. The film is well-acted - and there is definitely an
innocence and simplicity that is prevalent in the earnestness of all performances. In particular, the actress portraying Bob's mother reveals many
conflicting emotions. She is both heartbreaking and hilarious.
Many of the actual models / films / and photo sessions have been re-enacted with current look-alike actors, in a very clever mix of past and present. Plus, there is much double-entendre humor, which gay audiences will appreciate. The script is well-written, and successfully captures the ambiance
of 1950's southern California and the "world" of Bob Mizer.
As added surprise, the interviews with models such as Joe D'Allessandro and Jack LaLanne helped to present the history of beefcake photography, even
giving this production a documentary feel. The men reminisce about their youth, sharing honest memories about the time period, while reflecting
upon their own experiences in Mizer's studio. It was somewhat touching, in fact, to see these men in the present--still physical and beautiful--
in recent footage that is aligned with photos taken of them for AMG and Physique Pictorial in their younger days.
At the same time, while lighthearted, amusing, and thoroughly entertaining throughout - (and WHAT'S not to like, all these gorgeous nude men??!!??)-
the movie does not sugar-coat the more sordid aspects of what may have really transpired behind what was being marketed as "fitness" on display.
Mizer's own secret "codes" for his models suggests that his "business" was apparently a cover for illegal prostitution. Both the trial and its
sad outcome are presented for your consideration. The actor portraying the young teen on the witness stand gives another stand-out performance,
truthful and authentic; in fact, the boy's actual trial testimony forms the basis of this segment of the screenplay.
Therefore - I felt this narration was balanced and informative - and without doubt, one of the most interesting movies I've watched. Some of the
AMG models are re-created by actors who portray adorable, playful, country-boy innocents - while other actors present the more hardened, the
less likeable, the druggie, the darker side of porn. I think the use of these two contrasting "character" types serves as a metaphor for the feel
of this entire film, and as "description," those character types are certainly inclusive of the whole historical AMG phenomenon.
A film history - but VERY cleverly done, and so entertaining. (Yummy, too, from start to finish!)
The movie starts with an interview that was a bit offsetting because I was expecting a full movie like "The Notorious Betty Page" There were sections of the film that reminded me of that, but the cinematography was even prettier, more velvety and lush. The actress playing Mr. Mizer's mother didn't pull heartstrings even near the end, but she was really fun to watch, see, and hear. The potentially controversial aspect of this film, for some, was what looked like a "child actor" playing Mr. Mizer in 1934 when he began taking physique photos. The actor did a good job, funny also, like his liberal mother, and cast Mizer in a very focussed role early on, who nevertheless seemed to retain that character all of his life.
Overall, one is left with a trip down memory lane during a period that beautiful bodies were almost too good to be true. It can also be recommended for those who just want to enjoy that "thing of beauty" that is wonderful to some, and best left alone to others. Bob Mizer left a record of physical culture that has made my life more enjoyable and my understanding of "bello" far more complete.
Finally, there are five or six short films at the end offered as a bonus; they alone could be worth the price of the DVD.
