Joe (played by Clinton Walker) is a mid 20's gay man living in Toronto. His friends (and roommate) are all involved in the sex trade. His current boyfriend, who is leaving for an extended vacation in Europe, gives Joe a film camera. Joe decides to make a film about looking for a lover during the summer. This project starts as "on the street" interviews but becomes something more important when he meets Chris (played by Christopher Williamson), a boy that self-identifies as straight but whom Joe seduces.
This is a low budget independent film filmed partly in black and white and partly in color. It relies heavily on `stream of consciousness filming', basically setting up the camera and letting it run. It's clear (to this reviewer) that the filmmaker still needs to work on his storytelling skills. It's as if the filmmaker can't decide whether he's making a realistic romance movie or a farce. There are scenes that are completely unnecessary and do not serve to advance the plot at all. There are also interesting aspects of some of his characters and situations that do not get investigated at all. The final result is a film populated by `John Waters' characters but with less interesting and less developed personalities.
Overall this movie has its moments and Christopher Williamson is certainly toothsome but the romantic story, which I enjoyed, got lost among the farcical antics of characters such as `Ima Chicken', "Lotta Dish" and "Dick Large".
