Uneven quartet
13 March 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Two very good short films at the beginning and end of this anthology about gay male life are the highlight of Boys To Men. The third is like five minutes cut from a soft core porn film and not worth discussing.

The first is about young teen love and a young 12 year old girl with a remarkable gaydar of her own who matchmakes Brett Chukerman and Weston Mueller in her small midwestern town. The kids act like real kids as opposed to Hollywood type kids, these are all wide eyed and innocent and the film is a delight.

The second is a steamy film with John Sloan and Paul Dawson as a married man left alone at his beach house and a young hustler he encounters. Dawson as a player has a real edginess to him. I saw that when he appeared in Law And Order as a young white supremacist.

The final film is Bert Remsen and Tom Fitzpatrick as an elderly gay couple with one of them facing the end. He falls back on his Catholic upbringing something that the other just is not about to deal with.

All of these films were released individually and the thought here was showing folks at different stages of gay life. Gay life like everything else including this film as a totality has its ups and downs.
