A controversial film short on story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Want Your Love [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this film because of the controversy over the sex content and I was interested in the story of a man leaving a vibrant gay community and returning to his conservative hometown.
The storyline was a bit rambling and some of the dialogue was mumbled and hard to understand. I found it difficult to understand the relationships between the various characters. I was disappointed that the film ended on the main character's trip to the airport as I really wanted to see how he adjusted to his new life in his hometown. That's probably my fault for expecting something that wasn't promised.
The sex was graphic, as expected, but it was not out of place. Indeed, it was portrayed realistically and the actors appeared to be into each other. The eye contact between the actors was particularly good. This differentiated the film from porn where the sex and the actors usually look perfect, but they also look bored and mechanical.
Overall the film seemed to fall between a drama and a porn film. The sex wasn't sufficiently arousing and the storyline needed to be a bit tighter to fully maintain interest. A good effort, but not great.

I know what you mean, but I can't agree that 'actors' in porn films look perfect all all. On the contrary they usually as fake and artificial as the so-called sex they're clearly phoning in through a vacuum as vacant as themselves. It's all bicycle-pumped waxed-to-the-hilt sexless male 'bodies' and shaved woman shrubbery and implants. Quite horrible to think they're trying to tell us all that viewers would only like to see people like that having sex to get us all hot, and that we should all like that, but only in a contrary way, as most people should hopefully be sensible enough to know people can have rewarding sex quite often without needing nor wanting to look like that-and that they actually would be doing it with a lot more pleasure than these idiots do!
