At some point between Nancy Reagan s butthole and the implication of a man in underwear grabbing his crotch I knew that I had to own this bookBoyd McDonald explores sexuality of homosexual men by observing his own observations of men and women in film These essays then can either be read as a collection of the ueer gaze in cinema or else a myriad of film reviews that are at times scathing and others that are downright pornographic But what doesn t change throughout the collection is that Boyd McDonald consistently left me laughing cracking up actually When he describes Ronald Reagan s legs as the proof of heterosexuality or when he begs the reader to uestion who got to smell the tights of an actor following the end of his performance the reader is hopefully someone like me who will laugh at what can only be described a glorious bitchiness This collection let s the reader step back into a world of film review that is largely ignored for the traditional critical sense and they are able to see men who were watching films because they wanted to fuck or didn t want to a particular male actor because of his tights because of loin cloth because of his lipstick because of his legs or because of his obvious girth McDonald s writing does not contribute much to a traditional model of film criticism but it does open the reader up to a world of male sexuality that existed the history of a film which has a charm all to it s ownIf nothing else these collections are a lovely reminder that the word butt hole really needs to make a comeback in film reviews
