Half a good film
9 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a compilation of 6 dark-themed gay short films. Three are excellent and three are dreadful.

The bad one are "Remission" which is boring and pointless. It deals with a sick gay man living in an isolated cabin discovering he's not alone. Then there's "Winner Takes All" about an obnoxious gay guy who's in love with two men and tells them to box and the winner takes all. The guys are hot but the script is terrible and tedious. Then there's "Video Night" which is about a bunch of gay friends making videos when things go wrong. Horrendously acted and badly filmed. It's sole saving grace is that it's only 6 minutes.

The other three are great. There's "Spring" about a vicious sexual relationship between two men. Dark, disturbing and great. Then "Promise" is about two men getting ready to get married but the night before secrets come out. It's VERY well-acted, written and directed but disturbing with a rape scene that's truly harrowing. Last is "Communication" which is a very good short about a relationship between a young Jewish man and an older guy. It ends somewhat abruptly but it's still well-done.

So half and half here:)
