Movie Reviews

A Great Compilation!
JC | New York | 09/23/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Generally speaking, compilation tapes or DVD's usually have a few good shorts on them and the rest are either mediocre or unbareable to say the least. Well, along comes "Men's Mix One", and it breaks the mold. There are a total of seven films on the DVD and I enjoyed each and every one. The longest running comes in at 25min. and is entitled "Touch" and is the story of a middle aged man who upon an unexpected encounter at a gay bar befriends a young man that leads to surprising consequences. "Burls", boys plus girls, is an excellent little film about a young boys sexual awakening, encounters with drag queens, older men, and locker rooms. It's a wonderful story and features narration by Mark Hammill (Star Wars). A short documentary about "Louie's", a barbershop that opened in 1947 in the Castro community of San Francisco is insightful and touches on a view from the past. An Argentinean film is included called, "10 Pesos", which follows the path of some currency that begins in a gay bar, touches a cop, a rich woman who uses it to do coke, and a variety of people from all walks of life. Matias Risi has written and directed a clever film even without any dialogue. "Safe Journey" tells the tale of a street kid, who after being beaten and robbed finds comfort and solace after he enters the home of a man who has lost his loved one and is going blind. The two form a unique bond that is both compassionate and touching in this film that won the audience award for drama in PlanteOut's Short Movie Awards. "Gaydar" is the funniest of the bunch and features cameo's by Charles Nelson Reilly (Match Game) and Jim J. Bullock (Circuit) and tells the tale of an office hunk named Jack (Bryan Dattilo) whom his coworkers are trying to figure out if he's gay or not. The two vying for his attention are Randy (Terry Ray), who is superb with his "over the top" performance, and his co-worker Frankalina (Jennifer Echols). When Randy buys a "gaydar" gun at a garage sale that can pinpoint gays or straights, he can't wait till the next day to try it out on Jack. Is he gay? You'll have to see for yourself. Finally we have "Masturbation: Putting the Fun in Self-Loving", another funny film that spoofs the old health educational films of the 1950's. Dr. Sigmond Winston teaches Billy some wacky techniques ranging from how to do it between the mattresses, using a cucumber, to making your own vagina. Funny stuff and features some cute boys demonstrating them all. If you're a fan of short, independent films, look no further, "Men's Mix One" is the first and I hope one of many, great compilations."

"I have to admit I watched this movie to see what happens to the cute guy on the cover. What I found as I dug through the clips was that some of them were rather funny and campy (Gaydar for example) But Touched REALLY was good. It was a tale of the guy on the cover as he goes into a gay bar and picks this guy up. When they get to the older gentlemans place, the boy confesses a good deal to him about the troubles in his life, and there is quite a plot twist. VERY moving and emotional stuff. Buy it for Touched, stay for Gaydar."
An interesting and off-beat collection, worth a look.

"This is a collection of seven gay-themed short films. As with any collection, the quality varies widely. It is worth renting, if only for the hilarious short "Gaydar." The premise is simple, a ray gun that indicates who is gay. The writing, direction and performances in this film are all top notch. It is the rare short that makes you wish it were a full-length movie. Check it out!"

"It was really entertaining. I would rather have rent it then purchase, but worth seeing."
