  • FILM REVIEW | Candid Love

    ★★ | Candid Love Filmmaker Kurtz Frausun’s voyeuristic record of an ill-fated relationship between two desperately troubled men is a disturbing sight that raises all sorts of questions. The first one of which is why they even allowed the intrusive camera into their lives at a time when they are both clinging on to the […]

  • FILM REVIEW | Blackmail Boys

    When gay art student Sam ‘came out’ to his parents they disowned him and cut him off without a cent. Faced with high tuition fees, rent and living expenses to find in Chicago, he resorted to turning tricks as it pays so much better than any other manual labour. However when Aaron his long-term long-distance […]

  • FILM REVIEW | Blind

    Blond thirty-something year old Ingrid has lost her sight abruptly to an undiagnosed condition and now, depressed and unsettled, she just whiles away in the stark white high-rise apartment in Oslo that she shares with Morton her architect husband. ★★ She refuses to ever venture outside at all and actually suspects that Morton actually sneaks back […]

  • FILM REVIEW | Kissing Darkness

    ★★ | Kissing Darkness New gay film Kissing Darkness can be summed up as summer camp meets the Twilight movies.

  • FILM REVIEW | Three In A Bed, Where is the chemistry?

    The movie has a happy ending for Nate but not necessarily for us. When there are three in a bed, sometimes that can be at least two too many.

  • FILM REVIEW | Hyena, Slick and Brutal

    The ‘hyena’ in this slick and brutal crime thriller is a burly bent copper called Michael Logan who plays so closely with fire, he is definitely going to get more than his fingers burned if things turn out as badly as they probably will. ★★

  • FILM REVIEW | The Third One

    ★★ | The Third One Argentinian director’s Rodrigo Guerrero’s second feature is a very slight and charming tale about a one night stand that may change a young man’s outlook on life and love. We first see 22-year-old near-naked Fede at his laptop on a chatline talking to Franco. The conversation soon gets very intimate […]

  • FILM REVIEW | Who’s Afraid Of Vagina Wolf?

    ★★ | Who’s Afraid Of Vagina Wolf? Anna has just turned 40. She’s a chubby Cuban/American lesbian filmmaker, lonely, depressed and with more than a generous helping of self-pity that she loves to wallow in. At her birthday party to mark her entry into middle-age she wears a giant vagina costume which may get her […]

  • FILM REVIEW | This Is Where I Leave You

    ★★ | This Is Where I Leave You The ‘leaving’ in the title of this rather frenetic comedy refers to death and divorce and a few other departures in between. Everybody in the Altman family has both issues and secrets and the set up for us (and them) to discover them all is when the […]

  • FILM REVIEW | Wish I Was Here

    ★★ | Wish I Was Here Aiden is evidently a very lousy actor. He’s so bad that even though he lives in LA he hasn’t managed to score even a bit-part role for some years now. He does insist though that he must ‘follow his dream’ and selfishly refuses to give up even though his nearest […]
