Worth A Viewing
7 October 2013 | by (West Seattle) – See all my reviews

There isn't anything all that original (or even memorable) in Not Gay but if you like short films and queer cinema it's mostly worth checking out.

Cowboy Forever is the strongest film. Narrated like a documentary it explores a rather ordinary relationship between two Brazilian cowboys.

The Best Men is nicely shot and scored but has dialog that sounds like made-for-TV-movie. Purely on a film making note it does a good job of using a small cast to tell a typically large cast story (events around a wedding).

Katydid is a mildly comic film that feels more like a fragment of larger film. It seems to possibly be trying to explore some aspect of sibling rivalry.

Float is a seemingly pointless ramble with a lead character that comes off like a whinier version of Niles Crane from the TV show Frasier. However...I'm pretty sure the director took the elements of this short and made a much better full length feature, Children of God, which better explores the subjects this short attempts to address.
