Leave It On The Floor
(USA, 2011, 107 mins)
SCR: Glenn Gaylord
Sheldon Larry’s sexy feature musical celebrates contemporary ball culture in Los Angeles (remember PARIS IS BURNING?). Hunky Brad, thrown out for being gay, stumbles into a ball, a startling underground populated by voguers, sex sirens and memorable strays. Songs by Beyonce’s music director, Kim Burse, mix pop, hip-hop, rap, and gospel, while dance numbers by Mr. “Single Ladies” Frank Gatson explode with heat and joy. Already compared to RENT and called “SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER for the millennium,” LEAVE IT ON THE FLOOR is a party film with immense heart and an affirmation of family.
