Le beau mec (1974)

In this compelling feature from the golden age of French Gay adult cinema, American director Wallace Potts entreats us to enter the world of athlete, hustler, stripper, and it-boy Karl Forest. Filmed on location in parks, bars, and the streets of Paris, the brutishly narcissistic Forest narrates his early life, predilections, and philosophy of male beauty (including his own), while enacting fantasies of encounters with working men, soldiers, and his adoring public. Hailed internationally in the gay press for its narrative and erotic intensity, the film was long considered lost until the negatives were located in a garage in Montgomery, Alabama. Potts’ lover, famed dancer Rudolf Nureyev, choreographed the scintillating cabaret striptease, and legendary cinematographer Nestor Almendros captured the sculpted, elusive Forest at his physical peak — granting a fascinating and revelatory glimpse into the inner world of the man everyone is after.
