This Weekend’s VOD Favorites

The Gay Cinema Video On Demand experience at TLAgay.com has your entertainment needs covered! We’re always working to expand selection of new and old gay-themed movies available for your viewing pleasure. Here’s just five of our current favorites, from various years, that you may have missed – ALL available to watch INSTANTLY! These aren’t our TOP 5, by any means – just a handful of flicks we want to highlight.

He Loves Me
Director Konstantinos Menelaou‘s sexually explicit new relationship drama He Loves Me is an exploration of the unconventional nature of love and its ability to survive against the fear of loneliness, psychological traumas and the problems that come with life in the big city. The collapsing relationship shared by two men finds an outlet for escape on an isolated beach. Once there, they feel free to expose their deepest emotions. Their wounded relationship might not survive the vacation, but it’s certainly a glorious place to feel things out. Super-sexy lead actors Sanuye Shoteka and Hermes Pittakos are artists and performers who were a real-life couple at the time that He Loves Me was shot – and the script for the film was greatly influenced by their relationship.

Rift
Paying homage to classic art-house horror films like Robert Wise’s The Haunting and Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now, Rift is an enticing, well-acted and expertly-directed mystery-thriller from Iceland that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Gunnar (Björn Stefánsson) receives a strange phone call from his ex-boyfriend, Einar (Sigurður Þór Óskarsson), months after they parted ways. Einar sounds distraught, like he’s about to do something terrible to himself, so Gunnar drives to the secluded cabin where Einar is holed up and soon discovers there is more going on than he imagined. As the two come to terms with their broken relationship, some other person seems to be lurking outside the cabin, wanting to get inside. Eerie and stylishly crafted, Rift was a big hit at film fests – not just LGBT festivals, but general horror film festivals as well, where it has earned rave reviews.

Out This Week: About Us

Diego (co-writer/director Thiago Cazado) has to leave his hometown in Brazil to attend a film school in California for 4 years. He also has to leave behind everything he has ever loved… including Matheus (Rodrigo Bittes), a handsome young man with whom he fell madly in love and shared passionate moments. Ten years later, back in Brazil, he decides to write a novel about their relationship using his camera instead of his pen. This heartfelt biopic shows how passion can increase our motivation in life but how making choices can be cruel for passion.

 

The young, independent, Brazilian directors/ producers behind the touching new gay romance About Us have previously released three short films on the internet, which earned views totaling more than one million. After this excellent initial feedback, the decision was made to auto-finance their first feature film relating the intense and passionate relationship one of them had with a handsome lover. The movie was filmed in four months with local actors from Brasilia. Some of them are famous, some are beginners, but all of them were highly involved into the project. Thiago Cazado, who plays the protagonist and co-wrote and directed the film, is very active on the art scene in Brasilia on stage and in clubs where he works as an actor and as a DJ.
