King Cobra

In brief: When a lonely suburban man turned gay porn producer discovers a hot, lucrative new star, he finds himself the target of rival pornographers who will stop at nothing to steal his money maker. This is a sensitive and darkly hilarious true crime story that works from top to bottom. Kelly’s sordid story takes us back in time to the glory days of 2006 before You Tube. Sean Paul Lockhart, is barely out of high school and already chomping at the bit to leave his life behind. Rebranding himself as “Brent Corrigan” and telling his oblivious mom that he’s off to a paid internship on a film set, he hops a bus out of San Diego up north. Soon he is a pawn between two competing porn producers. At heart, King Cobra compellingly traces the palpable tension between the performative nature of gay porn and the privacy of queer shame.
Ramblings: Absolutely uninspiring. Silly story and over-acting by most and underacting by others. Their heart wasn't in it and neither was mine.
