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.

Boys On Film 8: Cruel Britannia

This new and latest edition of Boys On Film introduces you to the queer and wonderful world of new British cinema. From the cliffs of the Isle of Wight to an abandoned swimming pool via a broken down lift in Lambeth, Peccadillo Pictures presents an eclectic mix of ten UK-set short films from scorching new British talent that depict LGBT characters in situations both funny and heart-rending, definitive and unique.

I Don’t Care
In the tumbleweed coastal retirement community of Porthpunnet, Luka cares for his bedridden mother. One day he meets Dan, a young manwho lives in a camper van and shares his interest in art. Initially he sees Dan as a kindred spirit until Dan proves to be gay. This film could have been much more interesting but I think a lame ending was the fault.

Downing
Amidst a vibrant house party, John, the isolated local gay lad, finds an opportunityto exact revenge on his straight oppressor, the popular and handsome Daniel. Boykisses boy, drinking, fucking and regret: just another teenage party. This film was great. I loved it for a short film.

All Over Brazil
It's the summer of 1974 and Scotland face Yugoslavia in the group stage of the football World Cup. But Stephen seems more interested inthe world of Glam Rock than football. His father initially despises him and come around very soon. I loved the end when the father welcomes his sons d daughter home with some breakfast.

Man and Boy
A man invites a boy into his flat and offers to take pictures of him. But he does that because the boy literally forces himself on him asking for cigarette. To most this would seem suspicious in the extreme, to the few it is an innocent offer of friendship. Which way do you see it? Very very interesting take.

Diana
On the day after the Princess of Wales’ death Mohit, an Indian pre-op transsexual,goes on an emotional journey set against the backdrop of a day that shocked anation. He remembers how his family had shunned him and for them, he is still dead.

The Chef’s Letter
In the early morning hours, a chef struggles to write the letter that could overturn his ordered life. Entering his kitchen, he struggles to make abeeline for his sous-chef. I was al title confused by this film and what it was trying to say.

What You Looking At?
Two very different people in the London borough of Lambeth - a drag queen and a woman in a burka. Only in a lift would they ever crosseach another’s path. But these two have more in common than they first thought.

Nightswimming
Runaways Luke and Ellen are caught breaking into a swimming facility as they only want a warm place to sleep. The watchman lets them stay onthe proviso that they don't break anything, and so begins an emotionally charged situation between the trio.

Brillaint collection. I am in love with Boys on the Film series. (6.5/10)
