Homo Father (Polish)

It was a different movie, in the sense that by the end of the movie I was questioning about the theme of the movie. Was it about gay love, parenting, social stigma, gay bashing or something completely different. There is something inherently wrong with a film if the audience has to question the very basics of the film. The film might not be bad in itself but still.

Gabriel and Robert are a couple living together for years. They have a lovely relationship. Robert is not out to his family but Gabi is in your face gay and wants Robert to be comfortable with what he is. Robert is in the process of finding a job but him being gay comes out and he has to quit. In the meantime, an old friend of their Natalie shows u with a young girl Amelie and tells Gabi that he is her father and she wants him to take care of her. Because of his job and constant bickering by Gabi and now Amelie, Robert loses control and hits Gabi. He leaves home but misses him and wants to come back. he is gay bashed on his way and Robert realizes how much he also loves him and misses him. Natalie comes back to get Amelie saying she misses her.

A small simple film of less than an hour, you can se that the film really did not have a point to make. Interactions between Robert and Gabi were very real though. Specially when they fight and keep moving from one room to another is very sweet. Did I mention that Robert I think was very very good looking with his glasses and stubble. Acting overall was good. Film hardly leaves an impact on you.

Neither good nor bad. (4/10)

Ultimate masturbation: Shigoki no yama (Japanese) [The Ultimate Masturbation]

I would never know what was the point behind making this film. Was it supposed to be a comedy, cos it wasn't. It wasn't even porn. It was just a silly attempt at making something absolutely senseless and ridiculous. The story, as well as direction is equally shoddy. You could laugh for having seen something so bad, but I wouldn't call that comedy. An old man runs a camp about gay masturbation. The explanation given is that gays masturbate for pleasure unlike straight men, for whom the act is seen as shame or because they can't find a woman. One day a straight man shows up and wants to join the camp for his thesis. After discussion, he is allowed in. Rules include that you can masturbate together, you can masturbate one another, but there is no fellatio or anal sex. Some students of course breaks rule. The teacher then talks about 2 forms of masturbation which gives ultimate pleasure. He shows one without touching and then refuses to talk of the other. Somehow suddenly,

The Shortest Distance is Round 3: Fallen Flowers

Continuing with the weird trilogy of "The Shortest Distance", I am so glad that finally I am done with part 3 and won't have to deal with this again in future. Thankfully, as of now the makers have not announced any further parts; which will save all of us on this earth from the embarrassment of watching this in near future. After the first 10 minutes are used in sort of recapping bits of first two parts, the story moves forward. Haruto is now starting to have feelings for Ruka, the mysterious pole dancer from second part. In a fit of rage, Ruka ends up killing the goat man and to save him and Haruto, Shibahara asks them to go underground. Meanwhile Shibahara continues the search for Seiya (the guy who had cut off Haruto's penis). It turns out Seiya is now also taking care of the original club owner from part 1. Both of them were released after they had informed Shibahara of Aoyama's secret location. Shibahara tortures Seiya's boyfriend leading to Seiya killin

Driver (Thai)

Now, finally, a decent thriller with a gay theme. My last few attempts of watching a film with this genre has been terrible, so I was a bit nervous about this one. Actually to be honest, I did not even know that this was thriller when I started watching but pretty soon, it was obvious. For some reason, one thing that caught my attention in this film was the background music. Somehow it was just really good and perfect and went very very well with the film. I usually don’t even pay attention to such things but this was good. Businessman Tae has not returned from his Korea trip and this worries his wife Kade. She asks her police friend, Tum , to help her out but he advises her to wait for a few more days, because some work emergency may have had come up. But Kade is restless and can’t wait any longer so she asks her husband’s driver Mac to take her to his office to see if she can find something. There she finds an electricity bill for the house she never knows he had. Kade makes Mac
