Reunion of six short films having homosexuality as theme: "The Absolution of Anthony", by Dean Slotar, depicting a 16-year-old boy living with a Catholic grandfather in Bronx; "Smear", by ... See full summary »
James and Kevin are friends and live in Hong-Kong. When Kevin finds out that his Chinese father wants to send him away to England to study, he decides to spend a summer day with his friend James. Then something unexpected happens.
Very haunting short film about loneliness. Malcolm Gets stars as a man desperate for companionship. Seeking it in a bar, as we all know, is a mixed bag. In this case the object of his desire is an equally desperate drug addict. Every time Zeno asks for some new form of drug, that desperation builds until mistakes are made. Gets is always watchable, here he walks down a path many men can relate to. I felt so uncomfortable knowing Zeno needed to escape via some drug, eventually settling on poppers as his only means to get through the sex act, leaving Gets even more lonelier than before the experience. The painting of his dead lover watching the entire act was unnerving.
If you haven't seen Steve and Adam, (which Gets steals) you're a loser.
