I Love It!!!!! (And Aidan), 12 April 2001

AIDaN GILLEN AND UNIDENTIFIED STUD IN HOT LOCKER ROOM ROMP! SEE IT ALL IN THE LOW DOWN

Okay, so maybe The Low Down isn't technically a `gay' film.

And to be honest, the shower scene isn't all that hot.

But, I just wanted people to read this because I think The Low Down is the best film I've seen in ages about the `stupid years' - that awkward time spent after college doing stupid jobs for stupid people. It's about dealing with responsibility, outgrowing old friends, and the "rest of your life.' Can't we all relate? Anyone who is (or has been 23-28 should see it!

Aidan Gillen (from the British Queer as Folk who is amazing) plays Frank, a young wanna-be artist whose life revolves around friends and work. He knows he needs to shift his life into gear but he's not sure how to do it. Some of his friends from art school are settling down. His indecision comes to a head when he meets Ruby (Kate Ashfield who will be a big star), a pretty rel estate agent whose approach to life and its problems has an effect on him.

The director THraves did that Radiohead video with everybody lying in the street, and Blur, Travis, and The Verve and approaches this bittersweet slice of life with a cool style in perfect balance with his group of friends whose lives are at a crossrods.

And if that's not enough for you..Aiden Gillen is NAKED. I LOVED this movie!
