Furious Desires

Just Came Out: Furious Desires

A brand-new compilation of stellar short films is out this week from TLA Releasing! Gay themed short films are often hard to find outside of the festival circuit, but this collection bring you five of them for one low price!

 

Desire is mysterious. Desire is overwhelming. Desire is tragic. Desire is FURIOUS. The many permutations of that strange thing called desire are on full display in this stunning collection of short films: <i>Daytime Doorman</i> tracks the burgeoning desire between Marcelo and his sexy doorman Marcio. <i>Xavier</i> charts the beginnings of desire when Nicholas begins to notice his son, Xavier, only pays attention to certain types of boys. <i>The Other Side</i> is about the frustrations of unfulfilled desire when the object of your lust is beyond your reach – literally. <i>The Tiger’s Fight</i> explores what happens when one man, unbound by the ancient traditions, decides to subvert what’s expected of him to declare his desire for his best friend. Finally, in <i>Loris Is Fine</i>, we learn about the lengths two young lovers will go to prove that their love is beyond desire altogether.

Doors Cut Down - Special Edition Blu-ray

Just Came Out: Doors Cut Down

A subversive 18-minute short film, Doors Cut Down made a big splash when it debuted on the LGBT film festival circuit back in the year 2000. The film follows Guillermo (Israel Rodriguez), a 16-year old who seems like an average high school student, but hides a grown-up secret. He’s becomes a suave expert at cruising his local shopping malls for gay sex. Always looking for a new trick, he even resorts to seducing his much older English tutor. When he finally meets the hottest guy he’s ever seen, a man who may mean more to him than just a hot fuck, Guillermo finds himself suddenly conflicted.

 

Directed by Antonio Hens, who went on to make feature films like Clandestinos and The Last MatchDoors Cut Down made a bit of a comeback last year when it became available again as a streaming option on Dekkoo. Now it’s been given the royal treatment by the brand-new label Anus Films (a spirited play on Janus Films, revered distributor of world cinema masterpieces like Fox & His Friends and Ali: Fear Eats the Soul). Newly restored in High Definition, the short is now available in a Special Edition Blu-ray.

The volatile relationship between a wayward teen (Nicolás Durán) and his disapproving father (Alejandro Goic) comes to a head when the boy seeks shelter from the police, in this intense new film from Chilean writer-director Fernando Guzzoni.

 

In Santiago, Chile, 18-year-old Jesus lives alone with his father Hector in a flat where the TV covers up their inability to communicate. The rest of the time, he dances in a K-pop band, hangs out with friends and does drugs, watches trashy video clips online and has dangerous sex in public places – all in constant search of the next big thrill. One night, he finds it in an irreversible misadventure with friends – a violent event that brings Jesus and Hector closer than ever, but also threatens to tear them apart forever.

I Love You Both

Just Came Out: I Love You Both

I Love You Both is available on DVD starting TODAY! Click here to pick up your copy.

 

There’s something of a gay cinema sub-genre for stories about gay guys and straight girls who fall for the same presumably bisexual fella (see HeartbeatsAngels of SexJohn Apple JackHunterThree and The Passenger for just a few examples). The new comedy-drama I Love You Both looks like it will make a particularly thoughtful new addition.

 

Twins, Krystal and Donny, have been codependent for twenty-eight years, still living together in a converted one-bedroom house. As Krystal struggles to get over her ex- boyfriend and Donny struggles to come to grips with the fact that his new music manager might not be all that he claims, they both meet and starting falling for the same guy. Fearing the idea of having to go their separate ways, they remain in denial about the fact that they’re both dating him, until he eventually picks only one of them. His decision forces them to confront the fact that they can no longer live the same life. With nowhere to turn for advice except each other and their only two friends— Linda, Krystal’s co-worker, and their mother—the twins are finally forced to look for answers from within.
