A big black Comedy for the 21st century
7 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

If there is such a thing as a "comedy of manners" these days, then Rhythm & Blues is it. Although labelled as a gay film, it is only gay inasmuch as the characters are gay.It is a rollicking black comedy featuring a bravura performance by Ian Henderson as the thuggish skinhead Byron.The movie veteran Angus McKinnes co-stars as the amoral Bad Daddy with Gary Fairhall as the outrageous old queen Mitzi. This film has had great difficulty in finding a distributor, which is a crying shame, because it's GOOD! It was premiered at The Palm Springs Film Festival to great acclaim, and in England at the Portobello Film Festival, again to great acclaim, but because this film isn't "politically correct" (ie the gay mafia hate it)or bland, the chances of you seeing it are pretty remote.I think if Orson Welles had made "Citizen Kane" today, you probably wouldn't see that either! Therefore if you get a chance to view a tape I urge you to give it a try, because besides anything else, it's bloody funny. It deals with rent boys and those who prey on them, the victims and the opressors. It's like an Ealing Comedy for the 21st Century. give these rent boys a chance!
