TRUE-ly LOVE-ly
10 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This gay anthology of seven short films is probably one of the best I've seen. Much better than most of the BOYS LIFE series (except possibly #5) and MEN'S SHORTS. The reason for this probably has to do with the fact that all seven films were written and directed by the same person. Despite that, the stories are varied in tone and style enough to provide different aspects of gay male life. "A Christmas Story" looks as if shot on Super 8 film circa 1969, recounting a boy's first feelings of being different. Older gays, however, seem to get slightly shorter shrift with the perfunctory "Sunday" which feels tacked on and a bit out of place. The films are filled with remarkably fresh performances and the writing is lean enough to allow for some quality acting throughout. The only slight drawback is the title and promotion of the film, which recalls the "True Romance" novels of yore. This film is not just about love, but about life - and well worth seeing.
