Critic Reviews for Poster Boy
While the movie's discussion points certainly rank on par with those political thrillers, there's not enough substance for the movie to succeed on its own merits, a point underscored by posters selling the movie on Newton's perfectly airbrushed chest.
A polemic masquerading as a movie, Poster Boy unspools like a humorless lecture on right-wing homophobia.
Although audiences will admire the film's do-it-yourself energy and commitment, Poster Boy finally collapses of its own contrived weight, deflating just when it should soar into madcap -- or at least thoughtful -- satire.
An overwrought story of American politics and image-making that really only gets interesting in the final act.
Some clunky writing and a distracting subplot limit the effectiveness of this ambitious low-budget indie.
Poster Boy is a muddled coming-out movie that, for no good reason, unfolds flashback style as Henry tells his story to a sleazy newspaper reporter.
Audience Reviews for Poster Boy
Sadly, the poster is the best thing about this movie. Low quality film, awful lighting, unappealing characters and almost nonexistent sound editing make this film hard to watch. The film thinks it's more profound than it is and comes off like the brainiac you knew in junior high lecturing you for 90-plus minutes on his thoughts about unremarkable topics.
The camera work made me wanna shoot myself.. Average acting for a low budget film and average plot. But they could have spent a bit more money on hiring a proper camera man and that would have improve the film significantly. Not recommended to view unless you can withstand the experience of Blair Witch Project (Even Blair Witch Project has better camera work than this)
This movie tries too hard to be "artsy" and the story gets lost in that process. It is really good compared to most gay movies. Several characters are just almost unbearable!
