Product Description

DirectorDome Karukoski

From Gay Essential

Released in 2017, when Finnish war hero Touko Laaksonen first started drawing fetishized depictions of leather-clad bikers and uniformed men, few knew that the young artist was bringing a new gay subculture to life.  Tom Of Finland is directed by Dome Karukoski and stars Pekka Strang, Jessica Grabosky and Jakob Oftebro.

Read our film review on Tom Of Finland

“Much of what happens is dark, such as the imprisonment of men for no reason but their sexuality and the awful AIDS/HIV crisis that impacted on the gay community – and overall world itself – is only hinted at here, yet there’s comedy to be had, as well as romance and the obvious thrill that comes with fetishised drawings Tom of Finland is so rightly honoured for.”
   Cinevue

“Although much of Laaksonen’s work was hardcore, Karukoski doesn’t seek to ‘shock’ audiences with outrageousness, instead gracefully zoning in on the man and his life to celebrate his both his bravery and his art.”
   Eye For Film

“Fans of Tom of Finland’s artwork may be disappointed in the lack of overtly masculine sexuality, but this is a story about the artist rather than the art.”
   Dave Croyle, Gay Essential
