All Male, All Nude (c) Breaking Glass Pictures

All Male, All Nude

2017, United States

Award-winning filmmaker Gerald McCullouch (BearCity, Daddy) dives into the lives of men who work at America’s only all-nude, all-male gay strip club – located, oddly enough, in the heart of The Bible Belt! All Male, All Nude is a cutting-edge journey into the taboo world of male stripping. The men living this life can’t be boxed in, nor can those who pay to watch them shed their clothes. An unprecedented expedition, the film introduces staggeringly attractive array of gents (ranging in age from their 20s to their 40s) who expose themselves for the camera in more ways than one. Not only is there plenty of jaw-dropping nudity on display, but the men discuss the events that brought them to this controversial line of work: acting as delicious eye candy for gay men, straight women, business men in town for work, married couples and everyone in between.

15. B&B

Director: Joe Ahearne

Lovers Marc and Fred (Tom Bateman and Sean Teale) initiated a major legal battle after they were refused a double bed at a remote Christian guest house. They came out of their court case victorious and now they’re back at the establishment to claim their conjugal rights. Triumph, however, quickly turns to terror when a scary Russian neo-Nazi also checks in. Their weekend of celebratory fun soon becomes a bloody battle for survival. B&B is a whip-smart and brutally funny dark comedy-thriller that has been earning rave reviews from critics – some of whom have even compared it to the work of Alfred Hitchcock. The Hollywood Outsiders, specifically, called it “a film Alfred Hitchcock would be proud of.” The Horror Society said it’s “frickin’ fantastic and a trailblazer for LGBT cinema.”
