Freier Fall (2013)
Great Script and Acting
It's been awhile since I wrote last review and I'm pretty sure want to write this one. I want everybody know, gay or straight that this film is far more than just "worth watching", but I'll say this film is like one self-mirror, a reality that maybe happen in everyday life.
The acting is great, I called it natural. I really miss a good acting like this since "Weekend" in 2011 nailed it. The poster itself is really eye catching. See that poster remind me of "Brokeback Mountain".
About the script, no doubt, one of the best in 2013. It's great and I love it. I've seen some of gay theme films about gay police or gay in law enforcement environment always or mostly turn bad, but here, in "Free Fall" totally different. The director try to pull every string that guide us to see that love can be happen everywhere, even in a cocky place like police department in natural way. It's not like sexual fantasy like we used to see in porn industry, but it's drama, it's tears, it's life, it's a real drama between two man, in a right place an time love grow.
And don't really care about the ending, or the beginning, or the middle. This film tell us that love always find it's way home.
That was real...
Just saw it and better than I expected. Despite it's super limited budget, almost every aspect well done, the acting, story, editing, and photography.
Interesting to see Tanner Cohen again on screen after his last film was Were the World Mine (2008), he made reputation there, as the film too, one of the top greatest gay movies according to AfterElton. This some kind of good breakthrough. And the acting, no doubt, he's good.
No wonder, the director, Cory Krueckeberg, chose him as the lead. He was the writer of Were the World Mine (2008) and this is a great debut for him as a director.
The most interesting about this film is the story. It made like semi self-documentary, made by the 'Doc' (Tanner Cohen), who happened to be amateur fake director in a tricky way to get close to his favorite go-go dancer, 'Go' (Matthew Camp). He was very obsessed to 'Go' as he obsessed with online cam and blog. A little bit exhibitionist I say. He contacted 'Go' said that he's a director and want to make him and go-go dancing issue as the topic. Luckily, it was approved.
Then, story between the 'Doc' and the 'Go' begin. The shooting begin as their love of each other also begin to grow. Emotional build and love made, but the truth always altered the story.
Another great aspect of the film is the emotion, intimacy, and the bond between the two main actors really strong. We can felt this aspect almost at the entire film when filming the "amateur fake" documentary. At the point, I almost believe that this film was a "real" documentary starring by two "real" couple.
Some might said it's sad ending, some might said not. For me, it's fair ending and I liked it, because made less "Hollywood ending."
Plynace wiezowce (2013)
Just watch it and nothing new. Honestly, the first half of the film bored me, the plot running to slow and I don't have any idea what's going on with the story. A lonely yet have a girlfriend fooling around with guys in somewhere bathroom. There is something about Kuba's character just failed to show the audience that he's gay (or depress closet gay with a girlfriend and dominant mother).
The he met Michal and the 70's or 80's of gay life revive. Homophobia seems like the main plot, along with denial, gay bashing (the worst part at the end), and the tricky plot to get over this gay symptoms.
Another failed character is Sylwia. I mean, come on, we live in 21st century and yet she found that her boyfriend is a gay just extremely too long or she just playing dumb because she's just too selfish homeless woman. Oh, and this is another flaws, mom and girlfriend trying to plot a gay son to "normal" life. Seems like 90's telenovela.
I wonder if there was 5 minutes extension at the end. That "end" would the ultimate back through of this film to become "great".
Triple Crossed (2013)
No Story, No Acting... Just Skin and Beautiful Male
Seems to me that Brent, oops Sean Paul Lockhart still trying his best way to go mainstream cinema beside porn industry. I've seen some of his film, like Judas Kiss, small part in The Big Gay Musical (2009) and Oscar Winning movie Milk (2008). I have to say this, with honest and respect, still and yet, he found his best acting and fair debut as his first directing.
But, with another honest and respect, this film just far from good. The worst part is terrible story. It's more likely some kind of gay fantasy story, that someone (assassin with military background) would kill you for money and God knows that you would falling in love with someone should be your victim.
Another worst part is the acting. Well, we shouldn't expect mush from mostly "amateur" actors. I'm lost count how many "oh God..." I said during the movie.
Overall, if you enjoy film with skins (sure, there are some explicit full frontal nudity here), beautiful male actor with great body shape, then, this film would be perfect.
Sherlock: His Last Vow (2014)
I can't wait till next year
"Sherlock", still one of the best entertaining show on TV so far. Well made, great acting, and of course excellent story. "Sherlock" is nothing without good story.
I prefer "The Reichenbach Fall" then this "His Last Vow". I don't know, maybe just this episode just more less in drama and exciting big case. But, still it's great. I have to say that the last two episodes was boring compare to episode 1 & 2 the last two season, somehow Sherlock character just different after his "resurrection". He's more "happy", more "smiling", more "joke", more "funny", less "drama", less "observation", less "bad-ass", less "cold-heart", and less "genius".
And I see it now after finished this last season 3 episode. The whole Sherlock back again and it's really entertaining. It's great to see how he figure out a way go, even though this time he didn't kill himself but somebody else.
I really miss Moriarty, his arc-enemy. This last episode just perfect for Moriarty back from the dead. I just can't wait till next year how Sherlock, John, and new player, Mary, battle against Moriarty. Who will win? Doesn't matter. Great story plot will prove it all.
Dorian Blues (2004)
Entertaining but many Stereotypes
Fun movie, well actually, coming out isn't that easy, but this movie bring it up as simple issue, with funny joke, interesting character, and well done actors.
I like the acting. But, sometimes I don't really get Dorian's feeling by his language and tone. Somehow, Michael McMillian didn't get into his own character. There is time to laugh and there is time to cry, sometime he didn't get it, make me feel less emotional. Lea Coco and Steve Fletcher really did a great job.
I really like the script but I have to say full stereotype of gay man/homosexual. Like perfect brother, muscle, and sport. And the gay one, skinny, didn't like sport, always to blame, never done anything well and always the minor in every parents love (less favorite).
Let me make some comparison to some gay coming out theme. "Get Real" (1998) Steven Carter falling in love to John Dixon, school brightest running star while he look like a "nerd" and sometimes get insulted by other student. But, stereotype wasn't an issue here because that differences between them just a story about hard love and actually it wasn't love after all when John Dixon decided to shut up in order to maintain his reputation.
Another shot, "Mambo italiano" (2003), this coming gay movie is completely free stereotype. Even Angelo Barberini falling in love with "macho" gay cop and since school he already called gay, and even his father suggested Angelo Barberini to play hockey because it might be cured him, stereotype wasn't much problem here united family more important than what other people think.
For me, always interesting to watch gay coming out story. Dorian Blues good enough with 7/10.
Mambo Italiano (2003)
The Most Refreshment so Far
Well, ten years and finally got this movie. It's really refreshing to enjoy such a great gay romantic comedy. Well acted, great script, and a very interesting story. Bringing up Italian culture, I'm not Italian, but it's just something new and fresh and just great.
I like every character development. And love every funny parts. It's been awhile since I had found gay romantic comedy like "Birdcage".
I read some review and discussion about the "more appropriate" ending. I have to say, this time, on this movie, it wasn't really bother me. I mean, sometimes when the ending too rough to be true or too good to be true, emotion get involved easily. It didn't happen this time, in a good way.
I don't want to be sentimental, after watched this movie, I though that a happy ending always find it's own way.
The 24th Day (2004)
Problem with Budget
I have to say that both James Marsden and Scott Speedman did a great job. Both their character growing as good as low and high tension of the plot. I really like Dan character and the opposite character Tom.
Honestly interesting story. I think Tony Piccirillo really did a great job growing a story like "The 24th Day" from HIV?AIDS genre. But, I think the great problem was the lack of emotion developing. It was a great move from the first time they were hitting, back to Tom house, have a little chat and the thriller begun. After that, actually most of it just shouting. I thrilled but just that it. I don't pick up any emotion involved.
I guess it was because bad editing and cinematography, but it's fair enough for low budget film.
Naked As We Came (2013)
One of the Best in 2013
Honestly, I think this is one of the best gay theme movies in 2013. Despite it's low budget film, everything run perfectly well. The great part is the casting. Richard LeMay, the director, really done a careful and brilliant job to pick up the only six casts. Well, he is also the writer, I guess he know know pretty much a fit character to his own story.
Like I said, it's low budget. The casts only six and 98% appeared only the fourth main actors and main location just in big house with big garden. But, surprisingly, I didn't get bored, a good cinematography really helped with that problem.
About the story, I have to say that it's not really original. I mean, I have seen some gay interest movie with the same main story, sick mother/father/children, broken family members, guilt, reconciliation, and new future, but somehow, I like "Naked As We Came" twisted ending. Well, I don't really expect that ending and still can't figured it out yet, but mostly I have some in mind. The ending really help with whole plot story.
Love the character. Actually, this movie still a simple story, I figure it out why Richard LeMay picked conspicuous characters for the four main actors. It was great, like to see every character develop as it's be. The only lack is Benjamin Weaver's character as Ted Kingsley. He has the worst acting and likely incomplete character.
The ending? Well, I guess everyone has their own dream ending. One last thing, I think this movie more likely called as family movie than gay theme/interest movie.
I'm highly recommended this movie. I just hope it has bigger budget, could be very promising movie.
Surprisingly a Good Gay Thriller
Honestly, when I first watched this film, somehow it's a little bit boring. Well, I think this is a low budget film, the cast only 5 people and mostly 80% shooting only in the same room of an apartment.
But, I was surprise as the plot growing more complicated. The lead actor, Patricio Ramos as Manuel, played an innocent post-breakup gay and meet Mario Verón as Julio from online chatting. They have a different personality. Somehow, Julio look like the bad guy with tattoo and unclear past.
Interesting life in just one night stand. The whole plot only happened whole night with flash back sometimes. Sex made, emotion build and future planned. But the truth conceal when another truth reveal a lies.
