The Life of a Bouncer - Bounce: Behind the Velvet Rope

Most of the jobs that men do almost exclusively are high danger jobs, like mining and oil rigs, and bouncers. I have never seen a female bouncer . . . this is one of the high-risk, low-reward jobs that falls nearly exclusively to men. This documentary looks at the lives of bouncers.

Bounce: Behind the Velvet Rope

Bounce: Behind the Velvet RopeA chronicle of the lives of bouncers – the burly boys who guard both sides of the door in nightclubs across America.

The documentary takes an inside look at the mindset of these frequently ridiculed, but always feared enforcers of the night and examines whether they are skilled experts in security, hired to anticipate trouble, or just hired thugs meant to intimidate.

Revealed within is a world of notorious nightclub bouncers, including New York’s Terence “The Black Prince” Buckley and British legend Lenny “The Guv’nor” McLean who appeared in “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels”
