This short film portrays the emotional turmoil of a man whose childhood
friend and sweetheart is about to get married.
I am impressed by "The Best Men". Peter, the leading guy, goes through a rough time as Joe is about to get married. His feelings for Joe are subtly portrayed. In a blink and you will miss it hugging scene, Peter's longing for Joe is shown through his subtle facial expression. All the agony of "I love you but I can't tell you" makes viewers sad.
The production of this short is also good. It has great costumes, sets and background soundtrack. It could easily have been just lifted from a big budget production. Or the other way round, it could have easily been a decent full length film if it was expanded.
Rarely have I been as bored in a movie as I was watching the short film "The Best Men". For a short film it certainly was long. Pacing was terrible, acting was OK but a bit wooden, the plot left a lot to the imagination, and the whole thing had "student film" written all over it. I wonder what they were thinking to have added this to the collection "Not / Gay", it would have been a lot better if this film wasn't included at all. The film was full of stereotypes. It is overly long. There is really nothing else to say. Oh maybe that the main actors were very attractive. But that is hardly a selling point for a movie that is a colossal waste of time, even at under 20 minutes long.
