Lahn is a heroin addict who will do anything for his dose. After he robs his roommate, Denis, he shows up at the door of Denis' best friend, Trevor, to see if he will hide him for a while. He, who is terrified of women, agrees to let him stay in his apartment. In return for shelter and his daily dose, Trevor turns him into his slave and then into his dream girl, Dorothy. He uses psychological tactics to twist him into doing everything he asks. Written by Peter Storms <>

To filmman56, an imbecile
19 April 2012 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

*** "Why is it that gay filmmakers are only capable of making films about their favorite subject... their own sexual proclivities/fantasies?" - filmman56 ***

Really, half-wit? I must have missed the gay subtext in Romeo and Juliet, because Franco Zeffirelli is certainly a gay director.

Or the gay stuff in all those Merchant/Ivory productions, because James Ivory is certainly a gay director.

Maybe they cut the gay scenes out of Good Will Hunting, because Gus Van Sant is definitely a gay director.

My Fair Lady must have been about cross-dressing, because George Cukor was as gay as Liberace, and a director.

Obviously Swimming Pool was all gay stuff because François Ozon is a gay director.

There must have been more gay sex in those Brat Pack and John Grisham movies that I remember, because Joel Schumacher is definitely a gay director.

The perverted themes in Stargate, Independence Day, the Patriot, Godzilla and the Day After Tomorrow must have gone right over my head, because Roland Emmerich is an epically gay director.

And definitely Frankenstein and his monster were doing the nasty, because James Whale was a gay director.

I could go on, and on, and on, but I think your cluelessness has been amply demonstrated.
