Very good
25 February 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interesting anthology with 4 shorts dealing with being gay as a kid, growing up and then old age.

The opening "Crush" is a very sweet little movie about a 13 year old girl who has a crush on a 16 year old gay boy. Well-acted, realistic and very funny.

"Mountain King" has an encounter (mentally and physically) between two men. It has extensive nudity and fairly explicit sex. There's no message or moral here...it just seems to be an excuse to show two cute guys (with nice bodies) in full frontal and having sex. Not that I'm complaining! :)

"...lost" is about 5 minutes long and is just explicit sex...and a one-liner at the end that I saw coming a mile away. These guys were kind of hot too, but what's the point?

"The Confession" deals with a dying gay man who wants absolution from a priest but his lover it totally against it. Very quiet, but extremely well-acted and sweet with a touching conclusion. It's just jarring to see this after two sex shorts.

So, it's worth seeing for 3 out of the 4 segments. Not bad! If you're offended by gay sex or male nudity, stay away. Otherwise this is well worth catching.
