Palm Springs' White Party is the backdrop for this documentary on the fast-paced world of gay circuit parties. Halpern and Rolov follow three young men: 23-year old straight-laced circuit virgin, Brandon; 21-year old party boy with a drug problem, Tone; and sensitive but strong-willed 19-year old, Jon. Accompanying them is Jon's "soulmate," Todd, a 35-year old businessman recklessly reliving his adolescence, plus other "circuit friends" the boys make along the way. When Boys Fly pulls no punches in exposing this world - men are shown overdosing and engaging in risky behavior - but at the same time, it also shows the sense of community and vitality the parties bring to the men who attend.

Another expose of the circuit party scene
20 May 2002 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

This film, like the somewhat better Circuit, purports to be an expose of the circuit party scene and the dangers therein.

Although Circuit admits to being a work of fiction and this film is meant as a documentary, I felt there was more truth in Circuit than in this film.

In both cases, the films rely heavily on the appeal of the very thing they are condemning to sell tickets. Both films show a lot of the seedier facts of the scene amid buffed bodies, fantastic costumes, sparkling glitter, pounding music and oceans of drugs, I couldn't help feeling that both were hurt by this underlying dishonesty.

The reason that I would give Circuit higher marks than this one is that in Circuit, the film-maker admits on camera that although he's condemning the scene, he loves it.
