Writer/director Christian Moris Müller divides his unique film Four Windows into four chapters: “Son,” “Daughter,” “Father” and “Mother.” The film tells what happens to each of these family members, none of whom are given specific names, during a single sexually-driven day in their lives. The very hot Son (Frank Droese) says goodbye to the family, meets his buddies and then veers off alone to his favorite adult arcade. There, he has some steamy booth sex with a gruff man who refuses to kiss the tender lad. Blowing off a crucial exam, he revisits the place several times, seeking the man – to no avail. After this juicy start, Dad (Thorsten Merten) hires a hooker and some very odd things happen. Meanwhile, Mom (Margarita Broich) is seducing the building’s handyman and Daughter (Theresa Scholze) begs older men to fuck her on the subway. As you must have gathered, these people aren’t exactly the Cleavers. Told entirely from inside the heads of these separate characters, lovers of salacious cinema will want to peer through these dirty windows.

As provocative as it is endearing, Mr. Angel follows porn pioneer Buck Angel as he crisscrosses the globe telling his life story of struggle, triumph and sexual identity. The self-proclaimed “man with a vagina” had gone from super model to homeless drug addict, eventually rising back to the top by building an empire as an outspoken advocate and educator. Shot over six years, director Dan Hunt‘s voyeuristic camera captures some deeply charming moments – like Buck being tangled in a gaggle of dogs and spending time with his incredibly charismatic wife (Elayne Angel). The most eye-opening moment, though, comes during an emotional interview with his reserved parents. It is here that Buck’s advocacy of breaking society’s pre-determined gender and identity binary is heard loud and clear. Mr. Angel isn’t just a film about the most prominent transman in porn history; it’s also a story about universal love and acceptance for all.
