How do you make a documentary about the downfall of a porn star without leaning in to some of the more problematic stereotypes about people in that industry? Tomer Heymann’s fly on the wall examination of Jonathan Agassi manages to be a cautionary tale without ever demonising its subject, or the industry he works in.
As a documentary, Who’s Gonna Love Me Now? is a balanced production, showing us the perspective of the protagonist and the sometimes controversial opinions of friends and relatives. The film is also an excellent way to further discuss and overcome stereotypes associated to being HIV+. The big lesson we all have to learn with this movie is that love, after all, triumphs.
