The hotly anticipated debut feature film from director Travis Mathews (INTERIOR. LEATHER BAR) is a bold and unflinching look at gay relationships among a group of San Francisco friends, which includes scenes of real sex, striking controversy amongst global film censors, including Australia where the film was banned in 2013.
After a decade of living in San Francisco, Jesse is forced to move back to his Midwestern roots because he can no longer afford the city. On his final night in the city, friends and ex-lovers gather for a going away party that promises to heighten Jesse's already bittersweet feelings about leaving into sharper focus. Torn between his creative dreams and the reality of earning a living, he's forced to take responsibility by redefining what it means to be an artist, a gay man, and an adult.
Featuring music from The Chromatics, I WANT YOUR LOVE is a passionate and deeply intimate film, that dares to capture the uncensored zeitgeist of modern-day San Francisco unlike any film before it.

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.
The actors are purposively reflective of ordinary men, and do not attempt to be the 'pretty boys' one so often sees in glbt films. They are us, as we experience ourselves, and in no way the artificial, muscled and vacuous men one have come to expect in glbt cinema. This is within itself an important message, and I expect many will not see it for what it means to portray.
Many will say that the story itself likes character and is somewhat light. I on the other hand would say that's precisely what its meant to be. Almost a day in the life of the average man, who happens to be gay, and like so many people has little direction and purpose in life. In the end however, and along the way, be experience many people and learn a great deal, slowly finding our way.
I thought the film was fantastic, it deals with a group of friends in modern day San Fransisco. The main character, Jesse, is having to move back to his Midwestern small town due to lack of money. He is a performing artist and fears there will be little opportunity for him to perform his profession and he will also miss the lifestyle he has become accustomed to in SF. He has also recently split up with his long term boyfriend, who he was very much in love with, and saying goodbyes proves harder than he imagined. The film takes place over a period of around 24 hours, and focuses also well on the relationship of Jesse's flatmate and his boyfriend, who are having problems of their own. The film builds into a goodbye party for Jesse and focuses very intimately on these central characters and we rarely even see anyone else's face, despite hearing their voices.
As I mentioned the film does contain a LOT of graphic sex, but I did not find it out of place or needlessly pornographic. The sex scenes are fantastic and we get the see the characters at their strongest and most vulnerable at the same time. Sex is a part of every day life and it is a side that not many see, especially sex with long term partners or friends. I agree that the sex scenes are very sophisticated and this is where most of the characterisation comes through.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film, it was a rare experience, and was very well written and came across as very mature. The camera work was very well done, and kept the story flowing and made an intimate connection between the characters and their audience.
The acting is actually very good and real, as is the cinematography, the plot though is a bit thin.
Personally I don't need actors to actually have sex in a sex scene to make it real, after all it's meant to be pretend!!
