Muddled Mystery
18 April 2004 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

Michael and Tom have been together for 8 months when performance artist Jonathon comes into their lives. Jonathon needs a place to stay and blackmails Michael into inviting him to stay with them. Tom is uncertain what Jonathon's hold over Michael is and is angry. or is he.

So begins a convoluted, twisted story of passion, and deception and lies.

Unfortunately the plot twists and character motivations get out of the control of the filmmakers and what started as an intriguing story quickly turns into a muddled mess.

Some plot lines are never fully explained and some turns strain credibility too much to be allowed and leave the audience confused more than in awe.

While I'm generally able to forgive a lot in a gay story, Michael Christopher's sexy eyes and chiseled jaw line will only go so far to cover the blemishes in this overwrought but under thought out plot line.

I missed this when it was shown at the NYC Gay & Lesbian Film Festival but understand that many others felt as I now do and walked out part way through. I did finally get a bargain copy from E-Bay and saw it... but it turns out that it wasn't a bargain after all.
