Storyline

In 1990, seven young male dancers - 6 gay, 1 straight - joined Madonna on her most controversial tour. On stage and in the iconic film Truth or Dare they showed the world how to express yourself. Now, 25 years later, they reveal the truth about life during and after the tour. Strike a Pose is a dramatic tale about overcoming shame and finding the courage to be who you are.

VOGUE INDEED...!
30 July 2018 | by masonfiskSee all my reviews

A doc that reunites the male dancers from Madonna's 'Blonde Ambition' tour where they reflect on their lives & aspirations 25 years on. A great premise let down by shoddy story construction, this account still delights just by the sheer will & perseverance of the dancers' willingness to continue trying to lead good lives in light of the bad choices that have befallen them.
