Filmed in 1988, this film will be a trip down memory lane for those guys who 'came out' in the 1980's, a time when gay clubs played stock-aitken-waterman, were all neon and mirror-balls and a knock-to-enter door policy.
It's a sort of road-movie, as two gay best friends end up on the run after witnessing a murder at their local liverpool gay club, one of them spends his time with his head in the clouds, the other has to secretly hustle men (and women) to earn them money to survive.
If you're a romantic, the film will hit the spot, the two leads are played with a charming naiveté and the villains are pure evil camp. Good music, Robbie Coltrane in a frock, good acting, atmosphere and direction. My only gripe is that my VHS copy combined with what appears to be 16mm cine gives a rather grainy picture.
