Reviews

Nine more award-winning short film favourites from the hugely popular Boys On Film canon, from four different continents and celebrated film festivals including Cannes, Sundance, Outfest, Frameline and many more.

Boys will be boys in Pascal Alex Vincent s FAR WEST and CANDY BOY, where a farmyard and an orphanage get a gay makeover. GO GO REJECT sees Flashdance obsessive Daniel aims for the stars, as SWEAT has Holby City s David Paisley infiltrating a bath house with unexpected results. Meanwhile, love proves to be timeless when LAST CALL unites past and present, but TWO YOUNG MEN, UT hints at an uncertain future. Looking back on the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, BLOKES focuses on the sexual awakening of a peeping Tom. Two more young boys; a confused JAMES and mute DAVID, both reach out for an experienced hand, but will they find what they are looking for?

Candy Boy Dir. Pascal-Alex Vincent (France) 13mins 2007

Panic at the orphanage! Children start falling mysteriously ill left right and centre. Candy Boy, the most valiant of the orphans, leads the inquiry. But our hero s investigations are complicated by the arrival of a beautiful new resident...From the director of Give Me Your Hand.

Two Young Men, UT Dir. Sam McConnell (USA) 17mins 2009

Will and Eli meet by chance in a bar and head to the salt flats searching for a party. In the process, however, they take the first steps towards finding and accepting themselves.

Blokes Dir. Marialy Rivas (Chile) 15mins 2010

Santiago, Chile, 1986. Blokes tells the story of the sexual awakening of a boy during the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. Desire can result in a very different outcome depending on the moment that you live.

Last Call Dir. Nick Corporon (USA) 18mins 2009

After a tragic accident, Gavin is offered the chance to re-live three memories he shared with his ex-boyfriend, who recently passed away, by a mysterious bartender. Gavin takes the offer, but Fate has other plans...

Go Go Reject Dir. Michael J Saul (USA) 20mins 2010

Daniel Ferguson yearns to leave his job at Yogurt World and fulfil his childhood dream of becoming the Jennifer Beals of male go-go dancing, yet his Flashdance fantasy comes a cropper when the clubs specify only muscular dancers. Undaunted, Daniel turns his small frame into a huge success.

David Dir. Roberto Fiesco (Mexico) 14mins 2005

Unemployed businessman José, looking for work in the city, finds instead David; a much younger man who whilst mute, has no problem in communicating his desire for sex. Roberto Fiesco is the producer of Broken Sky, Bramadero and Raging Sun, Raging Sky.

Far West Dir. Pascal-Alex Vincent (France) 17mins 2003 Eric is forced to spend his holidays on his grandfather s farm in the countryside. Bored out of his mind, an unexpected visit from OTT friends Mika and Koko, and the appearance of a hunky farmhand, pull Eric out of the doldrums. From the director of Give Me Your Hand.

Sweat Dir. John Lochland (UK) 15mins 2009

Starring David Paisley and shot in the bath houses of London s Vauxhall, Sweat portrays Simon s first steps in the sauna scene. How much trouble can one boy get into, or out of?

Focusing on a boy in Northern Ireland isolated by his sexuality and alienated from his family due to his parent s marital troubles, James reaches out in desperation to his teacher for support and guidance.

12 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Son of Nietzsche on 25 Oct 2010
The BOYS ON FILM series no longer needs any introduction. This fifth volume is as engaging and diverse as its predecessors, and it is satisfying to see a range of nationalities represented, including Chile, France and Mexico. Synopses of the individual films are provided in the product description - so a few observations will suffice to introduce the variety of themes.

As always with short film collections, there are clear highs and lows. "Sweat" (UK) is a fairly tedious and predictable troll through a Vauxhall sauna, and "Last Call" (USA) is a dull and unoriginal reminiscence by a man-in-purgatory of mistakes that he has made. Happily, these quickly-forgettable shorts are in the minority, and the remaining seven films all have something to offer.

French director Pascal-Alex Vincent ('Give Me Your Hand') is afforded two slots in this collection: "Far West", a clever and entertaining story in which an urbane dancer finds himself in a rural outback town; and "Candy Boy", an unusual, anime-style adventure of a boy in an orphanage whose leadership is challenged by a troublesome yet enticing new arrival.

"David" (hailing from Mexico) contributes a touching lyricism, in its depiction of a mute young man's desire for an older Mexican man; and "Go Go Reject" is worth a mention for its injection of camp comedy into a generally serious collection.

Finally, pride of place to two absolutely outstanding shorts, each of which is - alone - worth the price of this collection and qualify it for its 5-star rating:

First, Connor Clements's "James" from Northern Ireland: a truly wonderful, and highly authentic, portrait of an isolated 15-year-old male, whose palpable desires for physical connection are consistently denied to him by our culture.

Verified Purchase
Most of these short films are based on very deep study of the human condition - one sees reflections of one's own life which shows that these are based on what happens in real life. Whether one is gay or not does not matter in watching these films because they show aspects of life that many must have experienced regardless of their sexual inclinations.

I have a particular love of gay shorts, but of course in any selection some are going to appeal more than others. The three 5 star offerings here for me are Blokes, James and Michael, which all deal with gay youth in a highly engaging way and pack a lot into a short space in terms of visual interest, and are thought-provoking. However Michael is spoilt somewhat by being incorrectly formatted, making the characters appear thinner than in life! The film is on a similar German collection of Spanish language shorts called Maricon, so I know this is not an intentional effect. All three films show considerable daring, and Peccadillo have done well to put them out. Far West and Candy Boy are both enjoyable, as is Go Go Reject, although I prefer VGL-Hung! on Boys on Film 1 which has a rather similar tone. The rest are also not bad although nothing very exciting. However to see 3 masterpieces in a collection is pretty good-going even with the formatting error in Michael ...

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER on 28 Jun 2011
This is another in the series of short gay themed films, from those nice folk at Peccadillo. And I must say they just keep getting better. This has nine films - yes nine and starts with one from the US called `Two Young Men,UT', which is a sort of chance meeting coming out tale. Nice to see Sniffn'the tears `Driving Seat' being used as an outro.

`Sweat' features Holby Citys David Paisley (or just David Paisley as his mates call him) who goes to the Chariots Sauna in Vauxhall, to prove he is being adventurous; this is after his boyfriend dumps him for being dull. I could put up with some dull if you get my drift and nice to see the inside of the `sauna' as I have never had the courage to go in (or been too squiffy).

`Blokes', takes us to Santiago, Chile in 1986, where Pinochets' Junta are having a crackdown, intermingled with unrequited lust of a young school boy. It has some great happy music which is used to juxtapose the violence on screen.

`Last Call', is an American ghost type story with an alcoholic gay man in the last chance saloon to relive the important moments of his life. Very interesting and well acted.

`Far West' is a French camp comedy where if you ain't already `out' you just ain't trying. This is one of my favourites, as Eric is forced to spend a week with his austere Grand Pere, who has a hot handy man. Then his two uber camp cowboy wannabe mates turn up, and it all starts happening- brilliant.

`James', is one of the most interesting tales. It is from Northern Ireland and features a lad `James', who is brilliantly acted, and who is struggling with his sexuality - I struggled with mine once, but it all come good in the end. He flirts with toilet adventure and then decides to seek help at school.

By Mr. Beaumont TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 27 April 2014
I was surprised “James” is in this collection. I first watched James last year on Youtube and this was the very reason I started to watch Short Films, so it was really nice to find it on this DVD collection.

My other fave had to be Go Go Reject.....if you have already watched Go Go Reject before then you will know why i loved it. But if you haven't seen it before then you are in for a treat, trust me on that :)
