Gay Movie Review of It's My Party
Gay Movie Review of It's My Party It's My Party (1996)

NTSC Video - Amazon USA DVD / Video - TLA Films USA

Based on the true story of his lover of eight years, director Randal Kleiser has made an emotionally candid, very personal AIDS and suicide drama which is short of dramatic structure but overpowering in the honest emotions it establishes. Giving a remarkably subtle and heartfelt performance, Eric Roberts stars as Nick, an architect and gay man with AIDS who decides to kill himself upon learning he has PMI, a debilitating disease which kills in a matter of days. But beforehand, he decides to throw a farewell bash -- attended by family and friends, and his ex-lover Brandon (Harrison) who has crashed the party. The story focuses on Nick's various relationships (some are superficially explored, others are rather tender) and a possible reconciliation with Brandon all the while joking with gallows humor of the inevitable.
With a large supporting cast, many are slighted in terms of definition, but the ensemble is sincere in a story which obviously touches all. Though not as polished as the high-profile AIDS drama Philadelphia, It's My Party is more aware, and can be sentimental without being maudlin.

Paul Rudnick has adapted his own off-Broadway hit with this witty if slightly flawed comedy. Jeffrey (the chipper Steven Weber), a gay aspiring actor, has come to a momentous decision: In the age of AIDS, he's going to become celibate. Then he meets the devastatingly handsome Steve (Michael T. Weiss). As these two men tentatively begin a relationship, Jeffrey learns of Steve's HIV-positive status, which only complicates his fear of commitment.
The success of Rudnick's play and film lies, partially, in creating a comedy centered around the subject of AIDS, and endowing it with an acerbic, even sardonic sense of humor. And when Jeffrey is funny (which it is most of the time), it is very, very funny. But in the filmization, certain dramatic scenes only magnify their less-than developed emotions. Patrick Stewart gloriously camps it up as Jeffrey's rich, designer friend Sterling, bringing unexpected depth to his role. Bryan Batt reprises his stage role as Sterling's PWA lover, and cameos include Sigourney Weaver, Kathy Najimy, Olympia Dukakis and a scene-stealing Nathan Lane.

Gay Movie Review of johns

Gay Movie Review of johns

johns (1997)
Director: Scott Silver

"johns" isn't built on a unique idea, there have been many films exploring the the sordid world of prostitution and the impact it has on the people being exploited and degraded. It's a film that takes an unflinching picture of two young male prostitutes and their journey through-out a seemingly mundane Christmas eve. We witness their daily activities such as talking with the other street walkers, bumping into angry hustlers, and being used like worthless objects by people picking them off the streets. "johns" does illustrate the two lead characters, John and Donner, as credible human beings. They may have different reasons for their actions, but both depend on each other to survive the harsh streets they work off. Lukas Haas and David Arquette give affecting, haunting performances, they play their roles with a sense of integrity which doesn't waver. "johns" doesn't have much of a plot, which is to expected, but it's utter starkness is something that is virtually impossible to turn away from, especially towards the end. If the film has a major flaw, it's the director's use of religious imagery to add a new dimension to the story, which results in some unfortunate heavy-handedness. Overall though, "johns" is a fine piece of work which is worth seeing for several reasons. It may not succeed in everything it tries to reach, but the effort being shown by both the director and cast is satisfying enough.

When he discovers his girlfriend having sex with his brother, Frankie (Scotti) decides to head to Manhattan, leaving his Bronx pizza shop forever for the fame and fortune of show business. But before stardom, he needs a place to stay. Looking in the personals, he notices GWM. And thinking it "Guy with Money," he heads to the Village and the apartment of gay actor Warren (Barrile), who's in desperate need of this month's rent.
Such is the premise of this slight though disarming independent comedy which finds its humor in gay and straight stereotypes, though the film's low budget is unable to overcome a pedestrian screenplay and the laughs aren't as frequent as they should be. But what the film lacks in creativity it makes up for in spirit, and the eager cast does try to sustain a degree of lightheartedness.
Gay actor Craig Chester steals every scene he's in as Barrille's platinum blond neighbor who's catty, bitchy and witty - meow!

Gay Movie Review of Latin Boys Go to Hell

With a catchy title and an advertising campaign that featured an almost nude muscled Mexican-American stud provocatively sucking his finger, it is no wonder that this film became the sensation that it did in 1997. But is it any good? If you lower your expectations and prepare yourself for cheerfully cheesy queer fun, than this sexy melodramatic soap opera will fill the bill. Troyano fills the screen with torrid Latino passions, rampant sexual confusion, beautifully bronzed flesh, a vicious killer, the Virgin of Guadeloupe and enough jealousy, revenge and pop culture excesses to satisfy any fan of early Almódovar. Justin is a cute teen closet case living with his mother in East Brooklyn. He finds his hormones kicked into overdrive when his sexy cousin Angel arrives for an extended stay. But the swaggering Angel soon falls for Andrea (a photographer who specializes in erotic portraits of Hispanic men) instead of his panting cousin. What's a horny Latino teen to do? Adding to the spicy cauldron of youthful passions is Carlos (who has the hots for Justin) and Braulio (an exceptionally troubled young man) who in turn loves the philandering Carlos. Taking its cue from Mexican soap operas, this very un-serious potboiler delivers some funny scenes and some appetizing skin.

Gay Movie Review of Lie Down with Dogs

Gay Movie Review of Lie Down with Dogs

Lie Down with Dogs (1995)

This low-budget independent feature from 1995 is notable for its whimsical lack of substance and its self-effacing sense of humor. Writer-director Wally White plays Tommy, a gay man from New York City who flees the urban crush for the promise of an idyllic summer in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Working as a houseboy, Tommy encounters various characters as he navigates the seemingly carefree gay community, leading a Candide-like existence, betrayed by employers and friends alike, and always coming up short in friendship and in love. Randy Becker (Love! Valour! Compassion!) plays a con artist who takes advantage of the good-natured Tommy, and Darren Dryden plays the shallow and unattainable object of Tommy's affection. While the film, White's feature debut, is short on meaning or resonance, the vignette feel of the story allows for a few choice comic moments. The film is surprisingly well made for a low-budget effort. All in all, Lie Down with Dogs is an offbeat diversion and a slice of life not often seen on the screen. - Robert Lane (Amazon.com)

Set amidst the disparate worlds of the London pop music scene and the bare knuckles boxing clubs of working-class Blackpool, Like It Is is a sexy, and at times, caustically funny tale of one youth's coming out and his first, tumultuous gay love affair. Craig (real-life boxing champ Steve Bell) is a 21-year-old Blackpooler who makes his living by fighting in illegal bare-knuckle fights. But the tough youth is also a closeted gay. He meets by chance Matt (Ian Rose), a cocky London music producer who takes Craig under his wing. The affair brings wide-eyed Steve down to the swinging gay Soho scene and into the duplicitous clutches of Matt's friends, which include Paula (Dani Behr), Matt's flatmate and an up-and-coming singer threatened by the arrival of the youth; and Kelvin (The Who's Roger Daltrey), Matt's gay and decidedly wolfish boss. Will Craig find happiness in Britain's gay Mecca or be forced back to his sordid former world? Some of the film's best moments are when it shows the tensions of being gay in a tough, macho environment; the biting indictment of shallow gay men; and the hilarious camp performance by Daltrey who sinks his toothy grin into his role with lecherous gusto.

Lilies is one of my personal favourite flicks for several reasons. First, the story, directing, and cinematography are absolutely enthralling. More interestingly, because of the time and setting of the story, a "gay" identity doesn't really come into play in the storyline. Rather, the story is a story of love (and trust, betrayal, insanity, etc.) in which that love is never named. For those who may have know something about GLBT history, this film is a wonderful example of how "gay" identity is not necessarily trans-historical.

The Living End (1992)

With its opening close-up shot of a bumper sticker that reads "Choose Death," one can rest assured that this self-described "irresponsible" black comedy about two HIV-positive men who set out on a lawless road adventure will not hesitate to cajole, provoke and otherwise incite strong reactions.
Produced on a miniscule budget, the film presents an in-your-face reaction to society's disregard for the plight of P.W.A.s. Jon is a whiny, urban gay - a film writer and critic - who happens into a relationship with fellow "positive" Luke, a free-spirited and rageful drifter who precipitates their angst-driven journey into anarchy.
The script might be thin and there is less-than-professional acting, but this eye-opening drama is a classic of 1990s independent queer cinema. A filmic rallying cry of, "Yeah, I'm HIV-positive and I blame society!"; despite its faults, it's a totally entertaining effort.

Venture into a new world never before shown: the gay and transgendered subculture of German Turkish immigrants. Murak is a dark-eyed, mop-haired 16-year-old trying to cope with his emerging gay sexuality one especially at odds with his traditionalist Turkish family lorded over by his overly possessive and frequently violent older brother. The teen, on his nocturnal cruising in Berlin’s parks, soon becomes friends with a colorful group of gay hustlers and cross-dressers. His true protector (and secretly much more so) is transvestite Lola (Gandi Mukli), a cabaret singer who lives with her butch but self-hating boyfriend Bili (Erdal Yildiz), a sexually confused and belligerent man who desperately wants Lola to have a sex-change operation. Violence, love and the revelations of a family’s buried secrets are contained in this emotionally complex, atmospheric melodrama. Rarely has a film so explosively exposed the displacement of such marginalized characters Muslims in a Christian country, Turks living in Germany and gays in a straight world. (In Turkish and German with English subtitles)

Gay Movie Review of Longtime Companion

Longtime Companion (1990)
Starring: Patrick Cassidy, Stephen Caffrey, et al. Director: Norman René

The late director Norman Rene and writer Craig Lucas made a pretty fine creative team on the stage and in the movies, and this 1990 drama about the evolving impact of AIDS on gay New Yorkers is their best cinematic achievement. The ensemble story follows the lives of nine or so characters as word of the so-called "gay cancer" eventually becomes a real force, killing several of them as the years go by. The film works well on a number of levels, not least of which is the enviable closeness of the characters, the script's wit, the bittersweet experience of loss, and a celebratory attitude at the end mixing wisdom with defiance. - Tom Keogh (Amazon.com)

David Leavitt's critically acclaimed novel about a troubled family's crisis with homosexuality is powerfully adapted for the screen in this drama. Phillip, a young gay man, falls in love and begins to feel the need to tell his parents about his true sexual self. The twist is that Phillip's father is also gay/bisexual but keeps his yearning closeted from his wife and family. The parallel stories of these two men and the emotionally distraught wife and mother caught in-between results in an undeniably painful melodrama that is exceptionally sensitive to the issues of homosexuality, bisexuality, coming out and familial miscommunication.
