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.Read more ›
`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.Read more ›
First up is ‘Two Young men, UT’ (*4). No, not a film about two suited young male Mormon missionaries – though that would make a good subject in itself. Instead, we have an interesting short about two young men from different backgrounds meeting in gay bar. What happens is good enough for a sequel or even a full film.
‘Sweat’ (*3) sees Simon take his first dip into the London scene. ‘Blokes’ (*4) is the Chilean film. It depicts life in 1980s Chile under the Pinochet regime. Schoolboy Lucho gazes out from his flat window and caresses with his eyes the object of his desires in the flat across the courtyard. But at night his eyes leads to sorry consequences.
‘Last Call’ (*4) tells the tale of a spectral bartender helping Gavin, a dead alcoholic, comes to terms with his feelings for his lover Mark. Sounds corny, but is thankfully far from it. The French film is ‘Far West’ (*4). Dancer Ricky heads west from Paris to his grandfather’s farm in the sticks near Chartres. He is followed by his two camp dancer friends, Koko and Mika. Ricky tries to hide his sexuality from his grandfather, little knowing that the latter …
Northern Irish schoolboy ‘James’ (*4) is vulnerable and lonely, but bravely tries to communicate his fears about being gay.Read more ›
