Gay Shorts
13 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Crush is the origin story of how fag hags came to be. Light and funny.

The Mountain King explores the sexuality of two men. One drug addict gay for pay, the other repressed homo. The give and take (no pun intended) between the characters is great and the sex scene is erotic but not raunchy.

...Lost is three minutes of jaw breaking eye candy. I liked it but lacked depth like the other three shorts.

The Confession was my favorite. There is a lot of subtext in this film and if you are not catholic you might not get it. My friend is catholic and explained what they were doing and I was better able to understand the short. It was nice to see the internal struggle between the two characters.

Overall, I enjoyed each film. Go watch it.
