What famous Hollywood actors might we be seeing documentaries about in 40 or 50 years’ time discussing how they kept themselves in the closet for fear of losing out on a career as a leading man? We all have our theories – who doesn’t love a bit of insider gossip? – but the question is the furthest thing on the mind of director Jason Schwarz who returns with another examination of queer cinema history after the deliciously entertaining I Am Divine (2013). Still, the question looms over this charming if rather one-dimensional documentary like The Ghost of Hollywood Future. Audiences can’t help but speculate even if the filmmakers won’t.
