Storyline

Former gay porn star Colton Ford has decided to get out of the porn business to follow his life long passion, music and being a professional singer. But, can he break away from his gay porn past, and achieve success in the mainstream music industry without the porn stigma holding him back? Director Christopher Long has crafted an unusual documentary by following Ford, his partner Blake Harper (who also wants to escape his porn career), and their interactions with a variety of professional music, club, and porn industry veterans. It's a bumpy ride, but hopefully a successful path to what Ford believes is his destiny. Written by trivwhiz

Somewhere, Over that Rainbow
21 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Colton Ford is a drop-dead gorgeous hunk of a man who I've always thought should be a major movie star. Instead, our 40-year-old hero chose to show all of himself in triple-X rated movies and is now a mega-famous gay porno star. This alone justifies high interest in this documentary by Chris Long as Ford attempts to shed his adult movie career and become instead a pop singer. I know, when you hear that this middle-aged man wants to become a male Madonna or Britney Spears, the tendency is to roll your eyes and think, Is He Mad? But, this is America, folks, where anything can happen. I mean, did you read about this homeless bum who is now a major celebrity because of his "golden voice." But anyway, we follow Ford and his boyfriend, equally gorgeous Blake Harper--another porno god--as they jump into the shark-infested waters of the music world and try to get exposure--of a different kind. Interspersed are some of the most suicidal and grim observations by porn filmmakers ever included on film. Chi Chi LaRue sets the tone with this cheery observation: "Sometimes I wake up in the morning and wonder if I should cut my throat before filming another sex scene." We're treated to a scalding hot appearance of Colt in a music video where he dances shirtless while singing. His physicality alone deserves the spotlight in some venue. I can see him doing a strip show in Las Vegas and bringing the house down.

One major weakness of this documentary is that director Chris Long gives us absolutely no back story about who Colton Ford is. We have no idea of what kind of kid he was growing up, how he got started in the porno business, why he chose to do sex roles. And there's absolutely no juicy footage of Ford in action. All we have is a split second of him fully clothed from some film.

But there is one curiously erotic moment included in this film that was probably unintentional. When the father of Colton Ford is interviewed, he comes across as one hot silver-haired bear of a man with a naughty twinkle in his eyes, especially when he grins and says, "Oh, yeah, I've considered doing a porno film. Haven't we all?" Well, no, but you can instantly see where Colton Ford got his hotness from. It would be ironic indeed if Pappy Ford decided to do a porno film just as his son exits the business.
