From Gay Essential

Grinder has nothing to do with the popular hookup app.  While Writer/Director Brandon Ruckdashel’s film may not be buried in your iPhone menu, the metaphor is far from lost.   This is a story about the meat grinder many young gay men must try to survive, weathering a gauntlet of homophobia, confusion, and the discovery of one’s self-identity.  Released in 2016, Grinder features Jon Fleming and Tyler Austin.

“Ruckdashel has to be applauded in delivering a cautionary tale on the ugly underbelly of the glamour industry, one that and like Hollywood itself, has seen all too many wide-eyed pretty boys seek their fame and fortune, only for their hopes and dreams to be found face down in the gutter of disappointment.”

“Shows the abysses of the modelling industry without being moralizing.”

“With just a handful of sadistic characters in his script, Ruckdashel creates a dog eat dog setting where nice guys dare not go.”
   Dave Croyle, Gay Essential
