With the launch of the brand-new TLAgay.com, the Gay Cinema Video On Demand experience we have been offering for a long, long time was upgraded and improved. We have expanded (and continue to expand) our 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.
This 19-minute short film, available on VOD courtesy of Border2Border Entertainment, follows Colt (Evan Spergel), a struggling aspiring writer who collects money after having sex with a complete stranger. Soon after the stranger is gone, an unexpected knock comes. Fearful for his safety, he makes a run for it. Somewhere out there, Colt falls into the hands of Ely (Adam Kenneth Wilson) a wealthy man. Their relationship quickly evolves into a complex dynamic of father and son. As Ely’s demons unravel, Colt becomes witness to this king all alone in his castle.
Taking place over the course of four years (or, more specifically, four consecutive Valentine’s Days) this achingly romantic new indie film from Filipino auteur Adolfo Alix Jr. takes an intimate look at the complicated relationship between two college buddies who slowly realize they mean more to each other than either had initially realized.
4 Daysjoins Derek and Mark in the days leading up to Valentine’s Day – over the course of a few years – charting the blossoming of a friendship in to something much more enduring as time goes on and challenging both to question who they thought they were and who they truly want to be.
Painting a moving picture of how an abiding friendship can sometimes lead to love – and how we sometimes have to wrestle with our own demons to find their true self – 4 Days is achingly romantic and delicate. Through intrusive, carefully selected long takes, we’re invited to observe the pair year after year and witness as the tension between them escalates. Lead actors Mikoy Morales and Sebastian Castro give exceptional, often heartbreaking performances in this thoughtful and patient romance (wherein the awkward silences and furtive glances speak volumes).
