Review

It is the 1990s and Madonna’s ‘Blond Ambition’ world tour is seeking dancers. Salim, Kevin, Carlton, Jose, Luis, Gabriel, and Oliver are chosen from hundreds of candidates. The tour is new and radical with Madonna stressing the powerful message of homosexual liberation and ‘AIDS’. After the tour, the dancers go their separate ways. While they are each building their career, Gabriel dies of AIDS. 20 years later, 6 survivors gather to tell what happened. They open the seal to time and secrets they had to endure to protect their existence and their identity. Strike a Pose shows the standard of making a behind-the-scenes documentary. Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan are co-directors who explore the times, show business, and interaction between individuals and group mentality through the relationship between Madonna and the dancers.
