Beautiful Homo-Erotic Images in the form of a Music Video
10 October 2000 | by (Northern, N.J.) – See all my reviews

I had the chance to see this short film at the First Annual NYC S/M Film Festival.

This film presents the inner fantasies of an older black married attendant at a museum, who seems obsessed by images of his homosexual desires. In his fantasies, the paintings on the walls of his museums are transformed into very erotic images of men being bound and whipped.

While the images are very beautiful and presented with artistic grace and precision, there is a serious lack of substance to this short film, and left me with a feeling of that of an incomplete music video.
