This review is from: Jamón, Jamón [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
Javier Badem and Penelope Cruz in very early roles. The film is a romp. It's ornery and sexy and interesting.

In A Lonely Place [DVD] [2003]
Dvd ~ Humphrey Bogart
Price: £4.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Bogart plays an intelligent but volatile man and he plays him very well, 29 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bogart plays an intelligent but volatile man and he plays him very well. Strong cast overall. As good a soundtrack as you could ask for. There's a sort of sullen agitation to this film that makes it hypnotic. Bogart is better known for more famous films, but he's never been as good as he is here.

...because directors of gay-themed films have become very sure-footed in what they present.

The casting alone is to die for. Tight scripts and top-drawer production values. A lovely collection of films with notably strong casting.

or you can gather a number of friends and watch them as a group.

If it's the latter, you will be talking about the films late into the night. Have some beverages and food on hand. Prepare to enjoy yourself first while you watch the films and next when you all discuss them.

The trick about short films is that they require a level of attention perhaps higher than some feature films. But the allure of this set of short films is that the characters make you want to give that high level of attention. The dividends are generous.

...and you will see the value in them immediately. Set aside an evening, answer no calls, and sit back to enjoy these beautifully-done films.

This review is from: Uncle David [DVD] (DVD)
By no means a predictable film. If you don't mind being refreshed by something quite odd and very compelling, this is the film for you. Plenty of neck-up philosophy and some below the waist raw sexual energy as well. Recommended.

Boys On Film 3: American Boy [DVD] [2009]

5.0 out of 5 stars These excellent short films are long on quality, 13 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These excellent short films are long on quality. Very high-interest narratives and characters. Bolt the door, take the phone off the hook, and settle in to an evening of fine story-telling.

Boys on Film: Youth in Trouble [DVD]
Dvd ~ Mario Casas
Offered by fat_buddha
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars It's about the faces., 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The characters in these films show you their entire interior world with their faces. Part of that is the talent of the actors, although there is something more than talent going on. It seems to have something to do with allure plus intelligence plus recognition.

I watched these films with an increasing feeling of belonging to the LGBTQ world. It is a series of short films but the vision is a long one, and covers a great deal of territory.

For some days after watching these films, you may be surprised to still "see" the characters' faces.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you've never stumbled upon a jar of gemstones..., 8 May 2014

...now is your chance. This collection of short films is long on watchability -- almost hypnotic, in fact.

There is just some truly fine work in this collection -- worth planning an evening around.
