Reviews

The most successful short film collection in the world returns for an eleventh instalment. Boys On Film 11: We Are Animals showcases short works from around the world that challenge genre, initiate discussion and explore issues of sexuality in beautiful ways. Be entertained, moved and affected by the latest in the ever original and consistently powerful LGBT shorts series.

This diverse and daring compilation tells stories ranging from the whimsical, heart-rendering and poignant to the unflinchingly bold and provocative. Latent ambitions are vibrantly brought to life in a remote part of Alaska, a forbidden lust is explored in Denmark, a friendship is tested to dangerous limits and a devoted father is faced with his teenage son s budding sexuality.

We Are Animals - dir. Dominic Haxton (USA) 13mins
This beautifully filmed, bold and daring alternate historical fable is set during the 1980s AIDS crisis. When a closeted young man finds himself in the midst of an anti-government coup, he joins in the fight against the strict regime that is being enforced upon them.

Burger - dir. Magnus Mork (UK/Norway) 11mins
Set on location in Cardiff, Burger is an observational study looking at the variety of customers that a late night burger bar attracts. Norwegian filmmaker Magnus Mork has painted a beautiful portrait of both gay and straight couples. It is the fourth short film to be produced by the Iris Prize, the world's largest lesbian and gay short film prize valued at £25,000, after Mork won the short film prize in 2010 for The Samaritan. Winner of Sundance Short Film Special Jury Award for Direction and Ensemble Acting 2014.

Alaska is a Drag - dir. Shaz Bennett (USA) 14mins
The unique Leo stands out from the crowd. This isn t ideal when working in a small fish cannery in Alaska. His dreams of leaving this small town appear impossible, until a new boy joins and sees Leo for the superstar he was destined to be.

Three Summers- dir. Carlos Augusto de Oliveira (Denmark) 28mins
As poignant as it is daring, Three Summers charts an unlikely friendship between a middle aged divorcee and a teenage boy. As lines are blurred and secrets are shared, a closeness develops in a way they never would have expected.

The Last Time I Saw Richard- dir. Nicholas Verso (Australia) 23mins
Set in a teen mental health clinic, we meet lone wolf Jonah who is forced to share a room with the newly admitted Richard. The boys form a connection based on mutual respect and some common demons; though Jonah soon discovers that not everybody wants to be saved.

Little Man- dir. Eldar Rapaport (UK/Israel) 24mins
Facing thirty, Elliott realises he has jeopardised every relationship that has come his way. The weekend his brother shows up on his doorstep and a bizarre neighbour begins spying on him; Elliott is driven to the edge in this uneasy psychological tale of obsession. Directed by the winner of the 2011 Iris Prize, Eldar Rapaport, who has since gone on to direct feature films, including the beautiful August.

For Dorian- dir. Rodrigo Barriuso (Canada) 16mins
For Dorian deals with a sensitive and vastly under-represented issue: the sexual awakening of teenagers with disabilities. Told from the moving perspective of a devoted father of a boy with Down Syndrome, it challenges the ways in which the disabled are frequently asexualised.

Spooners - dir. Bryan Horch (USA) 14mins
In this hilarious, inventive and pleasingly whimsical comedy, a gay couple s ridiculous quest for a comfortable mattress transforms into a journey of acceptance and public openness with their sexuality.

4.0 out of 5 stars better than no. 10 and Cruel Britannia 12 Mar 2014
By schumann_bg TOP 100 REVIEWER
These compilations are always going to be a mixed bag but you have to set this against the pleasure of expectation that you get a number of times over as you go from one film to the next. I found this one had a number of hits and no real misses:
Three Summers, the fourth of eight and the longest, is a daring Danish film set in idyllic countryside near a lake over three successive summers in which a divorced father interacts with the teenage son of friends. They have sex when the boy is only fifteen, which would be enough to get him sent to prison here, but presumably not in Denmark. It is a lyrical film of striking light conditions and facial shots, set to a jazz soundtrack that plays up its freewheeling but intense tone.
Alaska Is A Drag packs a real punch in more senses than one as it shows the travails of Leo, an Eartha Kitt-like boy in a flamboyant headscarf gutting fish in a port in Alaska. Permanently bullied by other young colleagues, he then meets the free-thinking, attractive Declan ...
Burger is pure Martin Parr - a cross-section of youth in a late-night kebab joint, often a bit drunk, shot up close and with an eye to absurdity, but somehow getting a lot of charm out of it without being cutesy. Three gay guys loom large, but don't dominate, so you wouldn't say it was a 'gay' film. It's very funny indeed.
For Dorian is a touching exploration of a boy with Down's Syndrome who seems to be gay, and his single-parent father's reaction to discovering this. Genuinely poignant, it never feels exploitative.
The Last Time I Saw Richard is an Australian offering with very attractive leads featured on the box. The main character - the one on the left - certainly provides a high eye candy quotient, although the film is far from sweet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best "Boys on Film" offering so far. 17 Mar 2014
By AdamS
Verified Purchase
The cover quote "Funny, sexy, imaginative....breathtaking" I found this set of short films to be none of those things, well may be one of those things! Funny, well "Spooners" is the only one that comes close to being funny, Sexy...well "We are Animals" is the only contender for "Sexy". Imaginative, yes! "We are animals" is very imaginative, as are most of the other offerings here, breathtaking definitely no. The offerings here are well acted and produced, but the stories are not particularly "Funny", "Sexy" or "Breathtaking", not the best "Boys on Film" offering so far, but there are still some interesting thought provoking short film here, no absolute duds, worth a look!

4.0 out of 5 stars Saved By the Bell 28 May 2014
By Jarek

I was about to give up on this latest compilation of Boys on Film vol. 328 (or so it seemed) as I went through the shorter stories first. I can't say I was overly impressed this time around and I began to question whether the compilers were, not scraping the barrel, but that the gay angle was starting to look tenuous or just a subtext. However two of the longer shorts I kept for the end were definitely worth seeing. 'Three Summers' (Denmark) from Carlo Augusto de Oliveira charts three summers during which a man in his thirties is seduced by a boy half his age and both have to live with the consequences. It's a sobering tale which stayed in my memory. The second short I enjoyed was Nicholas Verso's 'The Last Time I Saw Richard'. A chilling picture of the destructive nature of mental illness and the common demons that draw together two teens who initially have little in common. It is well played by the two young actors and the FX are not intrusive. The other films vary in quality though 'For Dorian' is a good stab at tackling Downs and sexuality though not long enough to explore it. While 'Spooners' is an entertaining comedy. As I said before, I hope the compilers will wait till they have enough quality before releasing future volumes and to remember that these are supposed to be GAYshorts not a mixture with too many other themes. Eight shorts over 2hrs 20mins plus more extras than is usual. Various subtitles and yet another different menu view easier to navigate than is sometimes the case.
