Storyline

College boy "Doc" is obsessed with a well-known NYC go-go dancer, nicknamed "Go." He befriends his hunky crush under the ruse of shooting a movie about what it's like to live in his skin. Camera in hand, he follows his subject across the city - into bars, onto rooftops, over dance floors and, ultimately, into his bedroom - but as they grow closer, flirtation blurs the line between subject and filmmaker until a steamy night together solidifies deeper feelings. Cory Kruekeberg's explicit directorial debut explores the thrill and danger of getting exactly what you wish for. Written by Anonymous

A crude and antisocial response to love
5 December 2014 | by (Jiggi) – See all my reviews

I knew nothing about this film and believed, while watching it, that it was really a documentary made by the protagonist. Upon discovering that it was actually made by a filmmaker, I become rather confused as to its intentions. Why is the film so crudely and unimaginatively shot?

I guess my belief in it as a documentary is a credit to the performances. And specifically not a credit to the production, which did look like it was made by the talentless and obsessive protagonist.

The story is one of an antisocial and self-obsessed young man, Doc, who focuses his attention on the image of a go-go dancer he has never met, Go, concocts a plan to "get" him and succeeds. Upon discovering that he is a real person, kind, intelligent and loving, Doc withdraws and blames Go for his own fear and superficiality.

Why would we want to follow such a morally and emotionally lacking protagonist through a film he has made in his own image, where he seeks a sexy ass, discovers a sexy person, and then hysterically justifies his rejection of real emotion and affection.
