Quinn (Wade Radford), a former twink (= gay porn star), has become the latest subject of an anonymous documentary filmmaker's TV series. However, Quinn doesn't prove to be the dream subject our documentarian has hoped for: He does do drugs and booze on film, he repeatedly veers off the subject, evades questions, totally changes his opinions in a matter of minutes, and he tries to seduce our documentarian at least twice, even though he doesn't appear to be gay. Heck, he even tries to get our documentarian to shoot a porn with him, even if he's just announced he's never return to the porn business.

However, our documentarian is anything but an angel: While he assures he "wants to tell the truth, wants to dispell myths and rumours", all his questions suggest that he already has the narrative of this documentary of his firmly in place, and now he only needs enough soundbites to make his prefabricated point stick. Now it doesn't take Quinn to figure that out, to figure out he's just as exploited in this "documentary" as he was in porn.

Eventually, this realization, coupled with the drugs and booze, lead to utter disaster ...

 

Now Twink is a movie that's certainly not for everybody: It's basically a talking heads-mockumentary about a topic (gay porn) what will turn quite a few people off, and while the film's not exactly explicit in its images it is so in its language (heck, even talking about getting one's ass fisted will make a lot of people squirm, regardless of sexual orientation). Plus, the grungy location might be an additional turn-off (though it fits the narrative perfectly).

But that all said, Twink isn't a movie about porn primarily, it's a two-person powerplay between the voyeur (the documentarian) and his object of desire (the ex-porn star), including all the underlying tensions, but also about prejudice and about truth, fabricated by the media - and it's about the exploitation of a human being, that not only happens when it's obvious (like in porn) but especially when it's not (like in a tell-all documentary) ... and all of this is packed into a rather stringent narrative arc, too.

If you can look beneath the surface, this is quite a fascinating piece of film.
