Storyline

A young gay man remembers back to a time when he was ten years old, attending the midway at a fair, seeing many straight couples walking around with their hands in their partner's back pocket, both usually wearing the tightest pair of jeans possible, as a blatant sign of sexual attraction to each other, and feeling incensed, even then, that he could not do that as a gay person in a straight world. Now as an adult, the sense of lack of entitlement still exists within him. As such, he asks a friend of his, a straight man, who generally wears the tightest possible jeans available, if he will parade around a fair midway with him, each placing their hand in the other's back jeans pocket. His friend agrees. As his friend is not his partner, will this facade be enough to satisfy his sense of societal inequity? Written by Huggo

To the point, an expression of a time
19 November 2009 | by rgcustomerSee all my reviews

I think this film speaks perfectly the experience of those of us who grew up in the 70s or 80s, outraged just like he was.

In some privileged places today, it's possible for similar people to grow up without that outrage. Maybe that's a good thing, and maybe it isn't. But I know that in most places in this world, it still happens, just like that.

Anyway, thanks to the director for making this short, to the point, film that so clearly distills what it is like to be on the outside in just one tiny way that most people take for granted, even now.

The narration is excellent, basically a poem. I also liked the various zooming and freeze-frame techniques used to make the point.

I wonder if there will be a sequel...
