Did You Know?


At the end of the opening titles, when writer, producer, director Brian Shepp is credited for the second time, in black chalk on the neck, shoulders, and back of one of the actors, there is a momentary transition from the chalk body credit to a party scene, with three other actors talking about what the spine looks and feels like on a male body when he bends over, and one of the other actors gently pushes the written on actor forward, as the dialogue begins, and there are shots of the three other actor's faces, and then there is a quick shot of the body which was written on, and the black chalk writing is gone, in just a few seconds. Then the black chalk actor turns over, and participates in the dialogue for a moment, and the other actors talk about drinking off of his body, which sexually arouses the other characters and then the other characters decide to go out to nightclubs for the evening, and they step over the place where the black chalk actor was lying, except now there is no more trace of the black chalk actor, and the other three characters leave without any more trace of the black chalk actor.

Crazy Credits

In the opening titles, Brian Shepp is credited twice "written, produced and directed by Brian Shepp" in the conventional digital title method, and again, unconventionally with "written produced and directed Brian Shepp" (without punctuation and without the word "by") hand printed using black chalk on the neck, shoulders, and back of one of the actors.

A new low for gay "cinema"
28 June 2007 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Horrid "comedy"; bad dialogue, even worse acting, contrived, cringe-worthy all the way through. Just because gay audiences feel underrepresented doesn't mean they should put up with dreck like "Gypsy Boys"; bad movies are bad movies no matter how much they might validate the needs of a community to see themselves on screen.

The 'Gay Circle of Friends' genre of gay cinema has been done to death but "Gypsy Boys"'s biggest crime is that doesn't even reach a minimum of competence in its writing, directing, acting, editing, pretty much everything. The romantic "dialogue" hits new levels of embarrassment but it was a shade better than the director's attempts at comedy which were beyond the pale. The substandard acting in this movie barely reaches the level of porno performers.

I've seen better movies at first-year film student shows. Even the furniture placement sucks.
