[trying to come out to his mother]
Is there something you wanna ask about me?
Let me rephrase that... I need to tell you something that...
I don't wanna know.
How do you *know* that you don't wanna know?
Because if it's what I think it is, I don't wanna know.
Then, you know?
Maybe but I don't *want* to know.
So why can't I tell you?

I have watched plenty of gay themed flicks, and to be honest, I have a healthy collection of gay-themed drama... ranging from Phillidelphia to Beautiful Thing and then Jeffrey to In & Out. The Unknown Cyclist is now a valued member of my collection of greats.
It does fall into one of those preachy AIDS AIDS AIDS movies... all about wearing condoms and being careful (don't get me wrong... this is a good thing), so some people may find this kind of film tedious and boring. You really need to give it some time though. It is a beautiful movie.
It has some very poignant messages to get across, and it does this very well. Take some time out to have a look, you won't regret it.
7.5 flaps outta 10.
