‘Jonathan Agassi Saved My Life’ Review: A Gay Porn Star Is Born

Reading now: 100

“Jonathan Agassi Saved My Life” has a somewhat sensationalist appeal: It’s a documentary about the rise and fall of the eponymous Israeli gay porn superstar.

But the director, Tomer Heymann, finds idiosyncratic insights within typical narrative beats about fame and power — two mercurial things that, for the film and Agassi himself, don’t exist in a vacuum.

Heymann situates the notion of celebrity in the context of not just performance and gay culture but also familial intimacy, with striking detail.
