Wear Your Heart Out

My NewFest schedule arrived in the mail yesterday (how retro!), and I'm excited to see two films I've written about -- "Ciao" and "The Sensei." But after flipping through it I now have a new entry on my must-see list: "Wrangler: Anatomy of an Icon," No. 3 with a bullet ...

SYNOPSIS: Legendary porn superstar Jack Wrangler’s life has taken so many twists and turns, one would swear it was fictional. Jeffrey Schwarz’s expertly constructed documentary explores the life of the most celebrated and successful gay porn star of the 1970s, who carefully cultivated his image, turning himself into a brand name, and influenced a generation of gay men with his masculine and rugged good looks. Remarkably, he went on to successfully crossover and become one of the biggest straight porn stars in the 1980s. But the biggest twist came when he met singer Margaret Whiting, 22 years his senior, and inexplicably fell in love. "Wrangler" is a remarkable film aboutan extraordinary figure.

Watch and see what all the excitement is about ...
