gay fascism
29 November 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Fascist-aesthetic gay film-making. The only people on screen are achingly beautiful in the body department, devoid of mind or personality otherwise. The protagonist undergoes a completely abstract (from history or social context) "coming out" experience at a Hitler-youth style scout camp, a story told in a highly developed cinematic language of intense furtive looks, meaningless cutaways to natural creatures, contrived "meaningful" silences and gliding tracking camera-work. The bodies of the actors are caressed and fetishised by the film to an absurd degree. The story, such as it is, would hardly be out of place in an episode of a teen soap.

The overall impression I got was of a self-consciously beautifully filmed artsy cinema aimed at middle-class gay consumers of "pink culture" who want to ogle men's bodies but don't have the courage of their convictions enough to just go out and buy a porno.
