Movie Info

Colton Ford had long dreamed of making a career for himself in the music business; while in college, he first began appearing in nightclubs, singing in dinner theaters and appearing with jazz combos, and later he landed gigs singing with dance club star Frankie Knuckles and cut a handful of solo singles. Ford first found fame, however, as an actor and model working in gay porn films. While he enjoyed a successful career in the adult industry, in 2002 at the age of 39 he felt it was time to get out of porn and take another stab at the music industry. Naked Fame is a documentary directed by Chris Long which follows Ford and his life partner Blake Harper as they follow the bumpy road into a new life as Ford struggles to re-launch himself as a pop star -- no small task for a middle-aged man with a long resumé in gay porn.

Critic Reviews for Naked Fame

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (4)

  • This is ultimately a sunny movie full of likable characters.

    Mar 25, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • This spare, enjoyable documentary suggests that today's pornography performers enjoy better life options than those revisited in Inside Deep Throat.

    Mar 24, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • There are many dreadful elements in this chronicle of aging gay male porn star Colton Ford's quest for crossover success in the music industry: sub-amateurish camera work, a maddeningly repetitive score, and a listless narrative.

  • This look inside gay porn... is tepid at best, and the endless series of meetings and to-the-camera sniping between Glenn and his manager/songwriter is torturously dull.

    May 27, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • What makes the film more interesting than it might have been, however, is the warm relationship between Glenn and Peter. They're two genuinely nice guys who seem to have formed very different attitudes toward their porn careers.

  • Director Christopher Long scrambles to make a feature-length doc out of this flimsy material.
