Adonis Factor, The

Chiseled bodies, flawless skin, sculpted jaw lines. At a time when popular culture objectifies men more than ever, it's hard for them to avoid the pressure to possess such physical traits. In his follow-up to "The Butch Factor," director Christopher Hines exposes how far some will go attain "the Adonis factor" - the kind of god-like masculine beauty only seen in ancient Greek sculptures. Hines takes viewers on an eye-opening journey through circuit parties, gay porn, and avant-garde fashion photo shoots, all of which promote their own kinds of idealized physiques. By capturing a diverse range of voices - from those who dedicate their lives to the pursuit of mainstream male beauty, to those who openly spurn it - "The Adonis Factor" ultimately poses the question: does a man's fixation on body image make him any happier?
