Storyline

Four Stories Of Love And Longing Michael J. Saul's first collection of shorts, "True Love" was a broad sampling of the many different aspects of gay love affairs. "Crush" is an anthology of four stories that examine the many feelings of longing and love in gay relationships. In "Don't Ask" a devoted couple is forced to confront their feelings regarding love and war when one of them begins to question his military service. The obsessions of an eager teen-ager lead him into the arms of a fellow classmate who hides a dangerous but erotic secret in "Bloodline". In "Strokes", despise turns to affection as a young student learns some difficult life lessons when he accepts an internship with a surly, world-famous artist. And lastly, "Breathe" explores the true meaning of having a crush. Told from the overly romanticized writings of a teen-ager for his classmate, "Breathe" depicts the haunting beauty of first love.

Less than mediocre collection of poorly shot shorts
16 August 2010 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

The only short worth mentioning in this less than average collection of short films is "Bloodline". I definitely see a full length feature potential for that one but even still, the quality of this and all the shorts is poor. I understand the concept of indie films and low budgets, but this has more of a home movie style to it than an actual film for the masses. Honestly, it was boring and at times very poorly acted. And I am a very open minded critic when it comes to gay indie features. Too bad this one does not strike the mark.

The acting was sub par. The cinematography was non existent. None of the shorts was particularly interesting or compelling. The film quality was grainy at times. "Bloodline" was only mildly entertaining, due mostly to the

cute Asian lead. Try the "Boys Life" series instead if you're looking for

a better short film anthology.
