Tom of Finland: the movie that somehow, inexplicably, got away from James Franco, or how to turn the tables on a TSA creep, if you have an artistic bent

(Note: end of clip is, for sure, NSFW.) Although Finnish sex fetish illustrator Touko Laaksonen, (AKA Tom of Finland) doubtless produced the most popular body of work of that genre in his lifetime (and beyond) this film (based on the trailer alone!) is probably much better than his art:

His detailed drawing technique has led to him being described as a 'master with a pencil', while in contrast a reviewer for Dutch newspaper Het Parool described his work as 'illustrative but without expressivity'.
