This has to be THE worst attempt at film-making I've ever seen. Verow states in the closing credits that it was shot using a cellphone, and that is really nothing one should crow about, as it is entirely unwatchable.
Aside from the opening and closing credits for Bangor Films and Verow and the "actors", for the first half of the video the images are like a fuzzy pixel-map -- not capable of being recognized by the human eye as anything familiar. After interminable minutes of this type of visual garbage, you get some footage that is ALMOST decipherable and in focus, but never is there found a clear, clean image in the whole enterprise. In not one shot can one see an actor's face or body clearly.
The "film" is so difficult to look at, that one cannot pay attention to the narration, as there are no images to associate it with. The narration, with graphic references to gay sex acts, thus comes across like a cheap and tawdry phone sex experience.
Verow's past efforts have not been THAT good, but this is absolutely trash and has no artistic merit at all. He should quit making films, if this is the best he can do.
Don't waste your time trying to watch this !
