Movie Reviews

Like a gay episode of "Twilight Zone" ...
Bob Lind | Phoenix, AZ United States | 06/09/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

""Back Soon" (2007) read the note that Logan's (Windham Beacham) wife, Adrianne, left for him when she went out to run an errand. Unfortunately, she was involved in a fatal auto accident and never returned. It looked to the couple's friends that Logan would never recover from that shock, and they weren't surprised when he decided to sell the couple's dream house, since it held far too many memories.

The first morning the house is being shown, Gil (Matthew Montgomery) is the first potential buyer, and immediately feels a "connection," not just with the house but also with Logan. That connection develops into a close friendship in a very short time, and takes a step beyond that one night, when a sleepwalking Logan enters Gil's bed and these two "straight" young men have sex. This is a surprise to both of them, since they were never attracted to other men before, but it somehow felt right, as do the feelings they have for each other. In time, the possible cause of those feelings surfaces.

This isn't your typical gay romance, and only some minor characters identify as gay. While done on a tiny budget (and it shows), from a screenplay with more than its share of trite, cheesy lines, and featuring acting (with the exception of the two lead actors named, who made it almost believable) that would be laughed off a high school stage, the story is at least original in its approach to explore the dynamics of attraction and love, with a "Twilight Zone"-ish twist that is both thought-provoking as well as slightly cringe-inducing. Reviews are all over the scales on this, since it isn't everyone's cup of tea. Gay fans of fate and the supernatural may like it more. Good DVD extras include actor and director commentaries, cast interviews and a stills gallery. I give the effort three stars out of five.

Raves for Back Soon
D. Sepulveda | San Francisco, Ca United States | 06/24/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I don't normally go for romantic movies but I was intrigued by the premise of this one.

Two straight males one of them recovering from the death of his wife meet and form a friendship when Logan the widower puts his house up for sale.

The first and only person to look at the house is Gill.

He thinks Logan is the real estate agent and asks him for a tour of the house.

After the tour Gill is compelled to buy the house.

It is only after the deal closes that he realizes Logan was the former owner.

The two men are drawn to each other and form a friendship that evolves into much more.

This seems to be aided by Logan's dead wife making ghostly visits to both men, she seems to know this was destined to happen and is encouraging it.

Both are confused by this since neither one of them is gay however they work through their confusion and decide to defy convention and admit their love for each other.

They are wise enough to realize that love is a rare and special gift and when it is offered you take the package with out worrying about how the package is wrapped.

Well produced, compelling story line
Glenn Hargett | Jacksonville NC | 05/24/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"While this film has predictable moments, the story is great. It is very well produced and save but for the section after the death of the wife, is compelling. It was interesting to see how others who were watching this with me thought there were other connections. The ending was not predicted however and leaves the viewer to ponder the possiblities. This movie gets a recommendation from me."
Matthew montgomery does it again!
Dennis Milam | Houston, Texas United States | 06/22/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"once again, matthew montgomery has demonstrated what a fine actor he is. as in his previous films, his performance is a pleasure from start to finish. i read an interview with him where he talked of how rewarding he finds working in gay indie films. his attitude and his ongoing acting performances make him shine as an actor and as a person. the actor in the other major role was also good and the script/direction worked nicely for an all-around good little film."
