5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful illustration of how a cast's personal life can influence a films creation..., 9 Nov. 2009
By 
This review is from: Glue [2006] [DVD] (DVD)
This is one of my favourite films - I'm getting a little addicted to back dating my reviews, but this I feel is more than worthy! It's one of the first films that really got me into quality gay cinema. It's a beautiful snapshot of someone's life, and although there is sometimes a lack of plot, this is not a bad thing as it gives you time and space to really be absorbed by the characters.

Alexis Dos Santos perfectly uses a variety of formats, DV, 16mm and Super 8 footage - each having its own benefits to the section of film they are used to portray. The film has a very authentic feel throughout, mainly helped by the improvisational acting techniques that so many film makers try to use but fail miserably.

All in all, this film is a definite must watch for all new queer cinema or fans of improvisational work. It shows how powerful a portrait of a character can be and how the casts own personal life can influence a films creation in a phenomenal way.
