An award-winning gay porn star, Jonathan Agassi
28 October 2019 | by babybuletganiSee all my reviews

An award-winning gay porn star, Jonathan Agassi travels the world for exotic shoots, claims to love sex and lives part-time with his cool mum, who chirps "each to his own" when his skin flicks arrive in the post along with her religious paraphernalia. But Tomer Heymann's intimate doc reveals an emotionally bruised performer who escorts to support his family, is unhealthily close to his mother and numbs daddy issues with hard drugs. Clear-eyed and empathetic, this is a fascinating look at the motivating forces that create a man doing a job that is unfathomable to many.
