Here is a great review:
“Pretty girls are nice”. Borderline autistic hot-dog vendor Albert (Jon Wachter) slugs out the night shift on the streets of Manhattan. A questionable perk of the job is that he gets to meet all kinds of colourful characters. One such character is nudie photographer Ivan Worthington (Theodore Bouloukos). Ivan takes an immediate shine to the inescapably weird Albert and offers him a job at his studio, where he promises to teach him about photography. His real ambitions are quite a good deal different. Ivan plans for Albert to become his subject in a series of extreme erotic shoots (!), secretly hoping to exploit his oddness in ways that could see him celebrated as the next Diane Arbus. Dabbling in shooting under Ivan’s tutelage, Albert takes a shine to the power that a camera can command. Unfortunately, his super awkward social mannerisms don’t go over especially well with potential models. As he continues to aspire towards a career in shooting — and controlling — beautiful women, Albert proves himself to be a full-on sociopath with not-quite-minor homicidal tendencies.
A rugged odd duck of a film that evokes the tones of Paul Morrissey, Andy Milligan and Richard Kern — and particularlyDRILLER KILLER-era Abel Ferrara — BAG BOY LOVER BOY is many ways a return to the kind of classic New York Underground filmmaking that the city no longer produces. It positively oozes with unusual characters, seedy situations and subversive sleaze, a uniquely toxic strain of blood coursing through its chemically enhanced veins. An unconventional assault on accepted social norms of classism and exploitation, BAG BOY LOVER BOY is driven by an underlying suspicion of artists who strive for positions of power and a general contempt for human nature. Among the film’s biggest strengths is its assortment of eccentric personalities — in fact, some of the characters were not in the original script and were instead created based on actors who came in and auditioned for other parts. Freakazoid first-timer Andres Torres has made a blackly funny — and wholly uncomfortable — film that’s at once an inspired throwback and a fresh new outsider vision. His lead, Jon Wachter, is one of the most unusual screen presences you’re ever going to see. We couldn’t imagine a better-suited work with which to launch our new Fantasia Underground section. Put that in your shutter and smoke it.

On set for my friend Marco Palou’s Music Video. Androgynous at it’s best.
Androgynous is a mixture of feminine and masculine energy. Top 15 celebrities that have this. One of my favorite singers, Prince is Number One and of coarse Jared Leto from The Dallas Buyers Club is on the list. Not unusual for singers and another one of my favorites, Annie Lennox is included. The last photo is Edgy: David Bowie’s new video sees Tilda Swinton channel a younger version of the musician as she plants a tender kiss on him
