h.o.M.O. in M.I.s.e.r.y
10 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The M.O. OF M.I. is supposed to be based on a play. TORCH SONG TRILOGY can rest easy, as this gay crime/romance must be the talkiest, most contrived play script to ever take to the gay boards. There isn't a trace of believability in the dialogue or characters and for a film script that's based on a play (by the playwright, yet), the 'performance artist' segments within the screenplay are downright M.O.r.o.n.i.c. Just try to follow the twisted storyline and character motivations and you're in for an M.I.g.r.a.i.n.e. Shame that the cinematography isn't bad and the guys aren't hard to look at. The direction is M.I.n.i.m.a.l. and the overall tone is M.O.n.o.t.o.n.o.u.s. The story is rife with hateful homos who (whatever their eventual M.O.t.i.v.a.t.i.o.n.s.) are unlikeable from the very start. The full title is 'THE MODUS OPERANDI OF MALE INTIMACY' - which is Ancient Latin for 'M.O.v.i.e. of M.I.n.i.m.a.l Interest'.
