Plot Summary
Bruce Weber's discovery of a gorgeous young hunk named Peter Johnson was the beginning of a marvelous collaboration that continued over four years. Plucking the young man from over a thousand boys in training as wrestlers, Weber turned Johnson into a highly-paid photographic model for Ralph Lauren, Versace, and Karl Lagerfeld. "Chop Suey" uses still photographs and live action footage to chart Johnson's transformation from a pretty young boy into a homoerotic icon.
