Getting Go: The Go Doc Project

Getting Go: The Go Doc Project ★★★½

An unexpected gem. I feel like the quality of gay-themed American movies has dropped in recent years, but this is quite refreshing. A young college graduate who seems somewhat insecure in his sexuality invents a ruse to work up the courage to speak to a go-go dancer and model he's become obsessed with. He claims to be working on a documentary about city night life. When the dancer unexpectedly accepts, he finds himself having to pretend to actually make the movie, leading to a series of encounters where the two guys open up to each other on all sorts of topics surrounding being young and gay in today's world - a world where a gay culture built on celebration of youth, bodies, and sex coexists along with a greater ability to just be accepted and live quietly out in a small towns.
