Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan’s tender documentary about the male dancers on Madonna’s 1990 Blonde Ambition tour follows them up onto the stage (where Madonna’s motivational mantra was “Give me more of you”), behind the scenes for the behind-the-scenes documentary Truth or Dare (where she famously dared one dancer to French kiss another on camera), and then behind those scenes, where they deal with the darkness that comes after the spotlight (and the star it follows) has moved on. With one exception, they are gay, and while they supported their boss’s pride-inflected “Express Yourself” cause, they weren’t consulted on her tactics. For some, those tactics proved traumatic. The film isn’t overly interested in gory details, however; it prefers to push a narrative of hope and healing, so much so that it concludes with a reunion dinner wherein The Queen of Pop is absolved in absentia and — sigh — everyone joins in another round of Truth or Dare. Well, almost everyone. (2016) — Matthew Lickona
