Award-winning filmmaker Dome Karukoski brings to screen the life and work of artist Touko Valio Laaksonen aka Tom of Finland , one of the most influential and celebrated figures of twentieth century gay culture. In a society that makes homosexuality illegal, gays are obliged to speak in code, and that the drawings served as an extension of code—as a crossing of little or no return in certain respects—is fascinating. He quickly and quietly advances to management, while Kaija remains in the pool. A part of the effect had to do with the fact that so much of his artwork was done in black-and-white, pencil drawings of such exquisite and varied shading that one could marvel at the peculiar, painstaking craft as much as one might drool over the impossible physiques.
In Beverly Hills, when a group of cops walks in on a pool party his hosts have arranged for him, Laaksonen fears the worst, but the scene ends with an amusingly ironic twist. This biographical portrait of erotic artist Touko Laaksonen traces his path from stealth fantasist of gay masculinity to major pop-culture influencer. How Laaksonen first used his postcard size-drawings as invitation cards of a sort, requests to men he found attractive as to whether they were interested in that sort of thing. Its lively finale is heartening, given the patience that Laaksonen was obliged to exercise before he could live his life out in the open. Advertisement Laaksonen lived from 1920 until 1991, and while he moved comfortably and, if this film is to be believed, delightedly in international gay circles, he was not known as a personality in the mainstream culture. But the insights of the movie are too scant for much of a real impression to take hold of the viewer.
Guided to the underground scene by his army captain Alijoki a wonderful Taisto Oksanen , Touko finds a home there.

His depictions of gay masculinity, to my eye, are kind of a gender inversion of the iconography of, say, a female bombshell like Jayne Mansfield.
Tom of Finland is rated R, and opens at the Landmark E Street Cinema on Friday, December 8. But then, Kaija, portrayed brilliantly by Grabowsky as a woman seething with ambition and uncertainty, also stands in her own way. At his job, he dares to infuse ad concepts and illustrations with an undercurrent of sensuality and eroticism. He is as brazen as the pictures he draws in his spare time of voluptuously muscular, well-endowed men, in and out of uniform, engaged in hot sex. The most interesting stuff in the movie is about the artwork—not how Laaksonen made it, the movie is hardly concerned with craft, but rather its initial uses. Before finding fame, he finds challenges from his sister and Finnish society due to his art. Their emotional range runs the gamut from friendly there are some big smiles to intimidating there are more impassive-to-frownlike expressions, often camouflaged by thick mustaches.
