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.

Intrinsic Moral Evil (Netherlands)
Three dancers play a game about coming of age, losing friendship and exploring bisexuality.

Hi. You got an impressive gay-related movie list here, kudos for that.
Maybe you could help me remember a movie I watched around 2010, so it's not that old.
The only scene I remember is a respectable older man sitting in a front row of a classical music concert, looking at a smartly dressed younger teenager a couple seats to the left from him. In the next scene, the teenager is sitting in the man's apartment in front of an impressive hi-end/hi-fi stereo set, listening to classical music, while the older man fixes some drink.
I don't think the movie is gay related per se, as I normally don't watch those movies, perhaps just a sub-plot.
Does anything of this ring a bell? Thanks.
