HotMen CoolBoyz (or H.M.C.B.) is a Danish adult film directed by Knud Vesterskov and starring Ron Athey and Billy Herrington.[1]

It was produced by Puzzy Power/HotMale, the adult arm of Lars von Trier's company Zentropa, also known for the Dogme95-manifesto and such projects as Dogville (2003) starring Nicole Kidman, Dancer in the Dark (2000) starring Björk and the Oscar-nominated After the Wedding (2006).

It is the only gay hardcore pornographic film ever produced by an established mainstream film company, yet upon its release was almost completely ignored by the Danish press, and only later started to gain an international reputation for its unique imagery.

Critical reception[edit]

HotMen CoolBoyz was nominated for five GayVN Awards, including Best Foreign Release, Best Solo Performance (Ron Athey), Best Art Direction (Pernille Schellerup), Best Videography (Marco Bellini) and Best Editing (Henrik Vincent Thiesen).
