Storyline

A man sits at his computer and logs onto the interactive game "Caught Looking." He watches as he guides his virtual self through passages, in black and white. He considers but passes on opportunities with rough trade, a teen boy, a threesome, sex in a public toilet, and the kitsch of retro 50's muscle mystic in the Grotto of Tiberius. He sends his virtual self back to a pair of sailors, whom he films in 8mm. Then he meets a young man, a Tunisian named Karim. The man at the computer screen is interested. His ironic and self-mocking commentary ends; his tone changes. What will happen with Karim? Has our virtual voyeur been caught looking? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A short look into a man's fantasies
18 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

Caught looking screams `Film school'. It's more a film essay than a real movie. It has an interesting scenario and it pays homage to many gay icons of the past but there is not enough known about the main character (even with the voice-over dialogue) to let you care about him. It is visually interesting and made well enough that it held my attention for the 35 minutes of its length but I must confess to being a bit relieved when it ended.

This film was the first half of a VHS put out by Waterbearer pictures with the second half being North of Vortex. Another video essay of the same ilk.
