Started in 2007 to keep a track of gay films that I watched, this blog has come much further than I had planned. There are tons of movies that I need to watch and review here. Through this blog, I want to give you genuine, my personal heart-felt review of the films that I see. These are my personal thoughts and opinions about the films and I would love to hear your thoughts on these films as well. I always reply to comments in a day or two. Please help me make my blog more popular by becoming a member, following it and by recommending it to your friends. As far as I know this is one of the very very few gay movie review blogs where reviews are not linked or copy-paste imdb summary. Enjoy and do keep writing your feedback.

Sun Kissed

If someone tells me hat this one was supposed to be artistic, then that is crap. What use is the art if at every 5 minutes in the film, the where is completely confused as to where the film is going (present, past, future). While watching you can try so hard to analyze hat this might be something that protagonist is thinking but still the movie just ends and you are still left with your questions and no answers.

Teddy, a budding novelist, has traded the big city for his professor's desert home in California to work on completing his first novel. There he meets Leo, the estate's handsome young caretaker who shows Teddy the ropes of living in the arid wilderness. Teddy is instantly smitten by Leo's sexy and casual demeanor. He stats falling for him. Considering the fact that the two men are all alone in middle of nowhere, its not long before that Teddy seduces him and they end up in bed together. Here starts al the confusion. We suddenly see that Teddy has finished his book and has disappeared because Leo probably feels guilty. Next thing we know is Leo got the book published and is married to a woman. At the same time, we also see that probably he is cheating on his wife with other men and ends up being with Leo and they eventually fall in love. But in al this, Leo keeps hallucinating that someone killed his wife. Its hard to predict or think what was the exact nature of Leo's past, his present and his hallucinations. I was so confused by the end movie finished.

Leo was cute. Thats good but what pisses me off is the fact that it could have been a great potential about 2 men meeting, eventually being friends or falling in love etc but the director unnecessarily had to create these odd situations which made no sense. Personally I would avoid it. (2.5/10)
