kyle dunne’s review published on Letterboxd:
let’s just say, this is not the royal caribbean internship i had in 2017
but really, don’t write this documentary off. it’s global in scale, singular in location (a quite intimate look at a cruise ship infected with f*ggots), and full of explorations into painful and personal moments of the Gay experience: Beauty, Youth, Isolation, and the Lack Thereof.
there’s reflections everywhere in this film. in the shiny elevators, the stateroom vanities, the beating water below, the identical gay men who lock eyes for a moment in the hallways or on the dance floor, and ultimately, in the screen of the gay man watching.
