What Would You Do To Be True To Yourself?
30 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Caught" is a 12 minute long film short produced in 2010. This film was written and directed by Monte Patterson and is set in the year 1962 in rural Ohio. The film is a fiction but based upon real events that actually transpired.

In the year 1962, homosexual was a dirty word. American society looked disparagingly upon gay men, and most who acknowledged their feelings for the same sex were forced to meet others like themselves covertly and in secret. Our movie begins in a public restroom, where some desperately brave gay men meet one another for brief sexual encounters. The film is lacking in dialogue, but makes up for the shortage of spoken word with the actors' graphic and frank depictions of sexual desire, longing and gratification. The lingering glances from one excited man to another at the urinals and restroom stall convey all the motivation required, and long-hidden desires are fulfilled in lingering, passionate caresses.

Unfortunately, sexual deviation is not easily tolerated in the United States, especially in 1962. Shortly after the first depiction of sexual fulfillment, the viewer is made privy to a secret: The unsuspecting participants in the restroom trysts are surreptitiously being filmed by an agent of law enforcement. In short order, the parties are rounded up, arrested and convicted; their private affairs are published in the local newspaper.

The unique lens of this film follows one man as he struggles to maintain a healthy, loving, relationship with his wife and child while simultaneously grappling with his urge to explore sex with men. This is what makes the short vibrant and truthful: The juxtapositioning of societal mores with the desire to fulfill one's inner self.

The fact of the arrests and gay persecution in 1962 make for terrifying and depressing material - but Monte Patterson handles the subject matter with compassion and an eye for humanity. Despite the subject matter, this is a film short worth viewing.
