I gave this five stars for the acting and the production quality. Neither were bad at all. I've seen far far worse in gay films. I really had to think hard to figure out what the story was, though. The filmmaker had an interesting idea, but was too subtle in his presentation.
Besides the gay characters, I didn't feel this movie had anything whatsoever to do with being gay. And the two gay characters were both portrayed as complete jerks! Well, assuming that the other main character isn't closeted.
And see that's where I think this movie was coming from, but failed to present. Our protagonist is in love with his annoying, aimless, (cute!) gay friend. Something happened that night in the high school, but we never get enough visuals to understand fully what it was. In the road trip buddy sense, I felt like somebody was trying to do Hard Core Logo and ended up with a film school project. Too bad.
And what ending? What? Seriously, I couldn't believe it when the credits rolled. There was no sense of what had happened. Once again, the storytelling skills are sparse here and I think that's why the film fails.
