Mr. Smith Gets a Hustler

Whether I like this movie or not is a different question, the answer to which you will find out towards the end; but what I would like to admit that the plot had interesting twists and turns to it. Unlike the name , the film is actually not bad. Bobby is a hustler who supports his dysfunctional mother Sheila. He works for a pimp in a bar through whom he gets his clients. Abe a black guy owes $6k to the pimp because his girlfriend flushed all the drugs that he was supposed to sell. The pimp suggests Abe to take up hustling t pay him off. One day a strange guy named Mr Smith comes and gets Bobby. They don't do anything in the hotel and Bobby gets paid. You feel that this is another one film where client falls in love in hustler but I was wrong. A few other times Mr Smith takes Bobby to basketball games and general hanging out. Bobby is confused as to whats going on but goes with it. On the other hand, Abe goes to this guy , a detective , who is looking for Mr Smith and tells Abe that

À toute vitesse (French) [Full Speed]

This film explores relationships in a non linear way through its 4 main characters with friendship, love and sexuality.Based in France, it honestly did not do much for me but was still interesting. I would have loved some more clarified justifications for some of the behaviors. Samir, a French Arab witnesses the accidental death of the man he loves. Feeling lonely and outsider he moves to a small town in France and encounters a young novelist Quentin celebrating the publication of his first novel with his best friend Jimmy and his girlfriend Julie in a dance bar. Samir and Quentin make eye contact and soon a brief assignation outside the club leads to a kiss that the vulnerable Samir views as a sign of love but that Quentin views as strange but as possible content for his next novel. Quentin loves Julie, Julie loves Quentin, but has an eye on Quentin's best friend Jimmy, a lad faithful to his friendship with Quentin. Samir, longing for a physical relationship and Quentin refusing b

Los Novios Búlgaros (Spanish/Bulgarian) [Bulgarian Lovers]

A different movie that I have seen in the gay genre was refreshing since it told a story something new for me. Talking about the influx of Eastern European men in Spain, this film talks about various issues that deals with the whole thing. Daniel, a very well off settled architect is a part of wild and promiscuous queeny gay guys in Madrid. The infiltrators from Europe who are all sexy have spiced up their sex life because they are ready for sex with men in return for meal or roof over their head. Daniel is on the lookout for the perfect man: Handsome, muscular, hairy and hung. He finds him in the Bulgarian, Kyril. Kyril has a fiance, Kalina. But Daniel gets so involved with Daniel that he could care less. He takes care of his food, clothes, money etc. Kyril's desire for money and then more money leads him to engage in a number of shady deals including help from Daniel to fix his papers. We all realize that Kyril will do something bad and Daniel will get affected. Matters change wh

Breaking The Cycle

The question haunts me why was this movie made? What was the intention behind this? Was it a soft porn but it cannot be that since the underlying message was that of finding true love. Story is simple. Jason and Chad are room mates and have hots for each other. But both think that the other person probably would not be interested so they keep their interaction at friendly level. Jason in hooked on to internet chat and hooks up with guys often. On the other Chad thinks that internet is lame and its all about finding true love and right person. On insisting on one of the friends', Chad also tries internet chat room and incidentally ends up chatting to the screen name of Jason. They end up talking about love, affection etc. Finally wen they find out they become lovers. A pretty lame story. Bad acting, bad directory, purposeless story. The only good thing is soft porn sex scenes between Jason and his hook ups. Don't waste your time. Can definitely be missed. (2.5/10)

The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green

Another kinda funny confused movie which tackles with one of those common issues with gay. Will I ever be able to find my Mr Right? WHy am I scared of commitment? A light hilarious movie whose whole idea was to just entertain and not make something path breaking. Ethan Green (a very cute guy) has problems with relationships: he has been in many from Juarez who still lives with Ethan's gay boy loving mother , to previously closeted baseball player Kyle , to Leo his room mate to the very young Punch. Movie starts with how Ethan wants to find this perfect guy , hooks up with Kyle and they have everything is going fine but Ethan being scared dumps Kyle when he asks him to move in. Come in Punch a young 19 year old guy who has hots for Ethan and had hit on him earlier when Ethan was with Kyle. They get together but just strictly for sex. WHen Ethan realizes that Punch might be the guy, Punch dumps Ethan saying Ethan is too immature. Meanwhile his roommate Leo is tying to sell the house

Dorian Blues

15 minutes into the film and I thought Have I seen this film earlier. Surely, I did. But it wasn't bad to see the film again. ITs the usual coming out kind of movie with bitterness in experiences. I mean it does have funny dialogues and is at time touching. I like the bond between 2 brothers and the chemistry they share. Dorian is sour on the world that doesn't understand him. His family consists of a Nixon loving dad, a confused lost mother, and a brother Nicky (hot! hot!) who is everything Dorian isn't - a jock, a ladies' man, and a happy-go-lucky high schooler. Dorian discovers the reason he doesn't fit in is that he is gay! With his discovery he finds some solace from another edgy gay friend Spooky but still feels he must remain in the closet. Finally he confides in Nicky who surprisingly listens to him and accepts him - just so long as Dorian doesn't act out. But Dorian cant take it anymore and tells his dad who gets so angry that he asks Dorian to leave ho

Why this title? There was an emperor who woke to find his lover sleeping on his sleeve. To prove his deep love for him , he cut his own sleeve. Since then, gay in Chinese is also known as Cut Sleeve. The story is simple. Ash and Mel (Chinese) are best friends . A sudden unexpected death of a friend makes him rethink of what they want in life.

Comes in Todd who once hooked up with Mel as an opportunity of love. They live together for a while but Mel in his mind is just not ready to get tied up. So he does not reciprocate his feelings at all and ultimately its too late by the time he realizes how much he too loves him.
