MR ANGEL. Directed by Dan Hunt. USA. 2013. 69 min. English.
It’s morning in Mexico. Buck is feeding his 7 dogs. Trailed by the pack, he picks up photos & reveals his past. Buck was born female yet always knew he was male. Even his parents raised him as a boy until puberty. That’s when the conflict began escalating to drug addiction and suicide attempts. Buck fully transitioned to male when he underwent a double mastectomy. The film follows Buck as he creates a new genre in porn trying to change the belief that you need a penis to be a man. Not aware of their child’s fame are his parents whose participation is a moving reunion uncovering Buck’s early history. “Mr. Angel” packs a universal lesson of acceptance and is a portrait of an unlikely hero.
