Storyline

A filmmaker who's Chinese, 22, and gay talks about his work and love life with an unseen friend behind the camera. We also watch four of his short films. "Hysterio Passio" conjures images of men's passions. In "Matricide," a lawyer asks a young gay Chinese why he killed his mother on Christmas morning. In "Key in the Heart," a heroine (an Asian man in drag) pursues vampires. In "Fall, 1990," college students meet their roommates, and Jimmy, an edgy scholarship boy without a family, is slowly brought to an understanding of love by the callow Byron. "Flow" begins with a satiric look at the vectors of viruses and ends with a chat with our fictive filmmaker's hip mother. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A brilliant and personal experimental gay feature film
29 December 2001 | by (San Francisco, USA) – See all my reviews



After watching Mr. Lee's recent feature DRIFT, I was finally able to find a rare copy of his "first" feature FLOW on rental. FLOW was a 360 degree shift from DRIFT. First of all, it was sort of considered his first feature because Mr. Lee cleverly stitched together five of his short films... four of which range from highly experimental to a moving Asian boy meets Asian boy romance, and the last one wraps the four together about the fictional filmmaker's of the four short films.

It's a tough film to describe, because there's just so much in it. The scope of the film is ambituous and exciting which evokes the spirit of New Queer Cinema in the vein of POISON. At the same time, the film feels very personal... It's a very curious and brilliant film... and yes, like every film, there are things that work and don't... but just for the sake of its ambition and willingness to break all boundaries, visually and thematically, it's well-worth watching.
