A Skin So Soft

This “hypnotic and fascinating” documentary by director Denis Côté, whose queer film Vic + Flo Saw a Bear set the art house world on fire, examines the lives of Quebecois bodybuilders, probing the boundaries of manhood and masculinity, desire and projection, selfhood and an image one aspires to. We watch these men seek control over their bodies, the sinewy musculature the only indication of agency of their lives, and we watch as their bodies transform more and more into vessels of an ideal that may or may not be a reality.
