"This disc consists of three short films in which living filmmakers try to respond to or recreate films of the Silent Era. "Queer" in the title means "non-normative," as not every one of the shorts has homoerotic content. Because there are so many subtitles here, one can't watch this as passively as one would with a "talkie." In fact, you can't blink because you'll miss something. This work is meant to give a forum to young filmmakers. Its intended audience is hardcore fans of independent film. The last of the three works is the most touching, but also the most predictable and facile. I am not sure who worships the Silent Era in this day and age, but the disc is for that small group."
