4.0 out of 5 stars INTERESTING, YET THOUGHT PROVOKING... 3 SHORT FILMS, 10 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Black Sheep Boy [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
"Black Sheep Boy" is the first of three short films by Michael Wallin on this Water Bearer Films DVD. All three films present images with voice overs. (No additional extras on the disc).

"Black Sheep Boy" (37 minutes, colour) presents a number of attractive young men briefly (some more than once) in various states of dress both outdoors and indoors and also presents scenes of two or three modern dancers acting out relationship issues. The voiceover moves generally from observations on boys toward a director's perspective of wanting to limit the behavior of actors and models to keep them mysterious and undemanding. There are lots of jump cuts, nudity, posturings, bare feet, and interesting observations. This was the most visually engaging of the three films; one has to have the discipline to pay attention to the sound track, which is where the real story is told. Low 4 Stars.

The 2nd film, "Decodings" (15 Mins Black & White) Assembles a compilation of historical footage (1940s and 1950s) along with a voiceover that encourages one to consider how to be an individual in a mass society.

The 3rd film, "Place between Our Bodies" (33 Mins Colour), shows the emergence of a man from an Urban porn-centered Milieu to idyllic scenes with them man in a positive relationship with a nice guy. There is some nudity and some hand-held shots of vintage pornography.
