Goofs

At the end of the opening titles, when writer, producer, director Brian Shepp is credited for the second time, in black chalk on the neck, shoulders, and back of one of the actors, there is a momentary transition from the chalk body credit to a party scene, with three other actors talking about what the spine looks and feels like on a male body when he bends over, and one of the other actors gently pushes the written on actor forward, as the dialogue begins, and there are shots of the three other actor's faces, and then there is a quick shot of the body which was written on, and the black chalk writing is gone, in just a few seconds. Then the black chalk actor turns over, and participates in the dialogue for a moment, and the other actors talk about drinking off of his body, which sexually arouses the other characters and then the other characters decide to go out to nightclubs for the evening, and they step over the place where the black chalk actor was lying, except now there is no more trace of the black chalk actor, and the other three characters leave without any more trace of the black chalk actor.

Crazy Credits

In the opening titles, Brian Shepp is credited twice "written, produced and directed by Brian Shepp" in the conventional digital title method, and again, unconventionally with "written produced and directed Brian Shepp" (without punctuation and without the word "by") hand printed using black chalk on the neck, shoulders, and back of one of the actors.

Rowan and Martin do Broken Hearts Club
9 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

I liked the movie, and in particular did not experience the audio problems the other commenter did, but maybe they fixed that on the DVD, which is where I saw it. There are lots of good extras (interviews and an audio commentary) on the DVD also, unusual for a low-budget indie film. The editing style may not be to everyone's taste, but I liked it. It did remind me of the old Rowan and Martin show where they kept bouncing between people dancing to stop and get a one-liner. Gypsy Boys is a lot more coherent than that, but similar in how the perspective flows from one clique to another, especially in the introductory scenes at the beginning. And like Queer As Folk, I think this movie makes an important statement on how people (gay men in this case) mistake highs of various sorts for happiness while studiously ignoring the real thing when it stares them in the face.
