low budget kitsch but topic MANUEL PUIG saves it
10 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It took me a little while to catch on that this movie was about Manuel Puig (famous author).... I thought it was just another gay themed movie about some poor not too attractive 30s something gay man throwing himself at every sex opportunity that might present itself.

Once I caught the story it was halfway enjoyable to watch. One hopes there was more to this man than coming on to boys and chumming around with rich fag hags. Unfortunately it is also very believable that this movie depicts exactly how things were in Rio..i.e. a famous lonely boozed up old queen on the prowl(note Puig was in his 50s in Rio--the actor Fabio Aste is considerably younger). One reviewer said Puig was a recluse in Rio--that is diametrically opposite to the extrovert portrayed in this movie...??...

When will they make movies about gay men who outsmart the system--are successful don't humiliate themselves etc...make James Bond gay!

Over all the movie is a stupid low budget affair but since it was about some one gay of note it is tolerable. One of the amusing low budget items is Puig is driven around in a VW rabbit convertible--could they not afford something better? Actually the movie's low budget and Argentine/Brazilian origin give it some charm.

TOLERABLE
