"In Wolfe Video's latest compilation of gay short films, we find an above-average assortment of seven international titles. As usual, I'll rate each individually, with the overall review an average of all.
"Serene Hunter" is a 2007 short film from France (subtitled in English), featuring the dilemma of a rather free-spirited man who enjoys chasing (and usually catching) attractive men for sex, but circumstances keep him from having the one young man he really loves. Three stars out of five.
"Solace" (US) shows an older and younger man who meet on the internet, and seem to get along well, until one reveals a secret that keeps them from what they both are seeking. Four stars out of five.
A young man who was "Scarred" (UK) in a gaybashing attack has a problem bringing himself to date again. A mutual friend introduces him to someone with whom he seems to have much in common. Unfortunately, there is one connection neither one expected. Four stars out of four.
You are only as old as you feel, but the outward "Signage" of middle age can be hidden somewhat with makeup and hair coloring, which encourages two best friends to plan a night out at a bar that caters to young men half their age. One makes a strong connection with a young deaf guy, only to find out that there is more than one type of obstacle involved. Four stars out of five.
First-date jitters in the age of internet dating is the subject of "Mr_Right_22" (Germany, 2007), but a kind waiter calms his fears and offers some encouragement to be open to life's opportunities. Cute. Four stars out of four.
Two masculine friends take about "41 Seconds" (German w/subtitles, 2006) to compare notes on one of their dates, in which his girlfriend compared their respective skills as a kisser. Only 4 minutes, but cute. Five stars out of five.
Last but not least, "Shahram & Abbas" (Netherlands w/subtitles, 2006) are two Iranian refugees, a young student activist and an older journalist, who want to see political asylum in the Netherlands. Believing they have a better chance of being granted such if they claim to be a persecuted homosexual couple, they begin a charade that leads to complications they never imagined, especially when the younger Shahram falls for a woman also awaiting asylum. Powerful and positive depiction of a very sad and serious situation. Five stars out of five."

"I'm impressed! This is the best compilation of gay short films I've seen to date. Fantastic job Wolfe Video. Not only is S for sexy - S is for shirtless, studly, specimens, (lots of) skin in seven, sensational stories. What more could we ask for?"

""S is for Sexy"
Due out from Wolfe Video on June 3 is a new collection of seven short films, "S is for Sexy". Each of the films was highly successful on the festival circuit and now we get to see them all at once.
"Serene Hunter" tells of a free-spirited guy from Paris who is never satisfied and always wants more. Even when he thinks he is satisfied,
he realizes that he is not.
"Solace" is a film about a very cute guy named Hugo who gets much more than he planned on when he looks for solace in a one-night stand with an older guy.
From Britain comes "Scarred" in which a scarred man must come to terms with his troubled past. Things come to a head when Rafi meets Joe and they embark on a hot encounter.
"Signage" an American film tells of a chance encounter between a young deaf man and a guy who can hear. The deaf guy forces the forty-one year old to see his ambiguous future in a world obsessed with youth. He gives himself a youthful makeover before he goes out and when he does he meets the deaf guy.
"41 Seconds" is a German film that shows how an innocent phone call can lead to a short but passionate encounter between friends.
From The Netherlands comes "Shahram and Abbas" about two middle aged men whose sexual orientation is not at all clear. The two men seek asylum in The Netherlands to escape the persecution happening in Iran.
Finally there is "Mr. Right_22" is about a young man named Adam who receives advice from a snappy waiter in a coffee house. It is Adam's first internet date.
Usually the only way to see these short films is at a festival but here we have seven of them together. "S is for Sexy" is indeed worth a look see.

"Wowzy, was I impressed!
Gay themed short films can be so dull. Not here!
This compilation of gay shorts is actually quite impressive and offers a wide array of emotions from funny to sexy to touching to heart-breaking.
With talented filmmakers like this, our film genre has nothing to fear in the future!
Great selection, Wolfe!"
