Storyline

Anthology of four gay-themed stories of diverse natures and development - an outline, a thriller, an interlude and an idea. In 'Bugcrush': Sex, danger, fascination and uncertainty draw small town gay high schooler Ben toward mysterious newcomer Grant. Inch-worming his way closer, Ben succeeds in gaining passage into Grant's rough-edged and foreboding inner circle for an experience he hardly could've imagined. In 'Doorman': A front desk manager has a highly uneven intimate encounter with a jaded hotel guest. In 'Davey & Stu': Two Scottish boys meet near a bog to enjoy each other's company. In 'Heartland": A non-native New York collegian heads back to his family's Iowa farm where he's needed but where his heart does not reside. Written by statmanjeff

Mediocre short films
3 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is a collection of four short films.

Out of the films, I enjoyed "Doorman" the best. It is quite stylishly shot, and has great character development. In the space of just 17 minutes, I have grown sympathetic of Diego. He is a convincing character, his fascination with Garrett, the subsequent confusion are portrayed well. The acting is great, the tension between the two characters are presented engagingly.

"Heartland" is also OK, the film is full of bright colours and sunshine, but the story itself is not as cheerful as the screen suggests. The soundtrack is upbeat, which enhances the entertainment factor.

I did not like "Davy and Stu", as this low budget production lacks an engaging plot, and the dialog is constantly incomprehensible.

In summary, I would not pay to watch these, but if you come across "Doorman", you can give it a try.
