Storyline

Failed filmmaker Zachary Wells is convinced by his best friend and hotshot director Topher into replacing him as a judge in their film school's annual festival. Zach's one-night stand with a student backfires when that student walks into an interview the next morning calling himself Danny Reyes, the name Zach went by when he attended the school. And Danny's film, "Judas Kiss," is a finalist in the competition Zach is judging. Zach's film, also "Judas Kiss," won the festival years before. As Zach scrambles for answers, a mysterious, chain-smoking campus tour guide, counsels him: "Change the kid's past, change your future." But how? Zach comes to believe he can mend his life by disqualifying Danny from competition, putting him on a different path than Zach followed. But will Zach's plan work? Written by Carlos Pedraza

More than an LGBT film
7 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's extremely refreshing to see a film touted as an LGBT film where story and character are the focus. It's not a coming of age story, a coming out story, or a story where character sexuality takes the main stage. It is merely a story who's characters happen to be gay. And a decent story as well. I enjoyed watching the narrative boldly and apologetically unfold. It doesn't waste time trying to explain what strange phenomenon is going on, it just marches forward.

Technically, I found the cinematography very well done. The soundtrack is good. Fx subtle. Direction well done. The performances mixed, but overall I felt the main cast did very well. At times, I felt the pacing was a bit off, but that is just a personal opinion. I feel Judas Kiss is worth your time and I hope many get to experience it. Looking forward to the DVD release so I can experience it again!
