The film isn't overly interested in gory details, however; it prefers to push a narrative of hope and healing, so much so that it concludes with a reunion dinner wherein The Queen of Pop is absolved in absentia.
The affecting film is absent of the truth or dare it had the potential for.
A loving, honest portrait of these men who were world-famous for a bright moment, and most importantly, what happens after the limelight goes away.
The six surviving members of the original seven are always excellent company, though Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan's film at times seems frustratingly under-researched.
Beyond the personal stories, the movie frames the tour and "Truth or Dare" as landmarks in the push for gay rights and awareness, and makes a convincing case.
The smartly assembled film makes points that resonate in a world where fame is increasingly ephemeral and life after the celebrity window closes can get awfully cold.
A superb look at the meteoric rise to fame and the eventual plummet that can often follow.
It's hard not to come away with mixed feelings about Madonna, who freely outed associates, but the impact of the tour on music, fashion, and LGBT acceptance is undeniable.
Strike a Pose is very direct and gripping in how it addresses "the closet" and the sometimes traumatising emotions it may create.
The approach could have been a little more hard-hitting, but it's a moving account of the way one huge opportunity can unbalance the life that follows.
An emotionally effusive film, this - sometimes excitable and indulgent but watchable, and an interesting addition to a growing documentary genre focusing on New York City as the crucible of gay liberation politics.
