Roughly shot, low-budget indie about a Latino boy in Los Angeles who has trouble coming to terms with his own sexuality, especially considering he has very strong feelings about his cousin with whom he shares a bedroom. There’s also a subplot involving a psychotically jealous lover who guards his model boyfriend like a hawk, and a female photographer doing a series of nudes of Latin men, which is where the film gets its title. Grimy and subversive, this film has limited appeal but is not completely without merit.
