Contemporary U.S. Gay Version of La Ronde; Uninteresting and Poorly Done
9 May 2005 | by jazzestSee all my reviews

In this contemporary U.S. gay version of La Ronde, nine persons relay portrayals of their lives in a day from one to another; simply, each character and his/her life described are not interesting enough. Towards the end, casting a married heterosexual African-American couple, whose wife says a clichéd statement of a well-educated, successful black female, ruins the otherwise consistent tone of the film, as all other characters are gay white males (except her husband). Explicit gay sex scenes seem to have little or no relation to the argument and make the film look like a pornography. Poor cinematography and sound also hurt.
