Black Briefs

2012, United States

Curated by prolific writer/director Rob Williams (Make the Yuletide GayShared Rooms) for his distribution label Guest House Films, Black Briefs features six award-winning short films with pretty dark, horror or horror-adjacent stories and themes. When it comes to short film compilations, there is always something to recommend. If you don’t like the first one, chances are good there is a short just around the corner that you’re going to appreciate more. In Black Briefs, we really like Hong Khaou‘s steamy Spring, about a young man meets up with a stranger for a little exploratory sadomasochistic sex; and Jack Plotnick‘s Video Night, in which a group of filmmaker buddies discover something unexpected in their raw footage. Our favorite, though, is Greg Ivan Smith‘s Remission. A man, all alone in a secluded cabin awaiting the results of a serious medical test, is haunted by a terrifying presence. It’s genuinely chilling and it’s one of those rare movies that can create dread and unease even in its scenes set during the daytime.

The Boy with the Sun in His Eyes

2009, United States

The untimely funeral of a friend rockets John (Tim Swain) into the orbit of the flamboyant Solange (Mahogany Reynolds), a B-movie actress/one hit wonder musician best known in Europe for her roles in 80’s Italian horror movies. John soon follows her into heady whirlwind romances with cute French pop stars and deadly (but hot!) Milanese model managers. They barely survive murderous performance artists in Paris and fatal gourmet food poisonings in Italy. John begins to realize that Solange’s world is far more complex and dangerous than he could possibly have imagined. Her chosen lifestyle abounds with trips, tricks and traps. Based on the novel by James Derek Dwyer, prolific underground filmmaker Todd Verow‘s The Boy with the Sun in His Eyes is a sexy-smart absurdist comedy that doubles as an homage to 1980’s trash cinema favorites.

The Curiosity of Chance

2006, Belgium & United States

The Curiosity of Chance pays homage to the ’80s high school comedies of John Hughes and switches the perspective to that of an openly gay teenager. Chance Marquis (Tad Hilgenbrink), a confident, self-assured, quick-witted, perceptive, outspoken and clear-headed gay teenager, reflects back on his first year at an international high school. While meeting and making friends with an assortment of types, he also has the targeted attentions of a mirthless vice principal and a bullying, homophobic soccer jock out to make his life miserable. At home, Chance’s perceptive little sister openly shares all his confidential secrets with their widowed career-army father seeking common ground with his atypical children. Introduced to a drag club, Chance finds fun and success in a cross-dressing contest, but a photo of his participation makes life at a school a living hell.

Bad Boy Street

2012, France

Prolific queer filmmaker Todd Verow abandons his home base New York City for the City of Light in this sexy drama about two very different men thrown together by fate. The story begins one evening when Claude (Yann deMonterno) happens upon a young man passed out in a side-street alleyway. With no ID, he decides to take him to his apartment to safely sleep it off. Awakening the next morning, the hunky young man returns the favor by immediately going down on his sleeping host – and this begins the unconventional relationship between forty-something Claude and twenty-something Brad (Kevin Miranda), an American actor. After that exciting and unexpected first date, the two – despite their age difference, nationalities and Brad’s personal demons – tenuously begin to get to know one another and possibly find love. An accomplished, serious gay romance, Bad Boy Street catches the often controversial Verow at the top of his game.

Fourplay

2012, United States

An eye-opening gem of a short film collection, Fourplay offers up four short stories both hilarious and emotionally powerful. Each of the individual films follow seemingly ordinary characters who find themselves thrust into some very unusual sexual situations. In Skokie, a closeted woman’s crush on her minister’s wife erupts during a weekend of dog-sitting. In Austin, a young couple discovers a kinky way to keep their relationship alive. In Tampa, a man with an extremely small penis finds his nirvana in a public restroom. And in San Francisco, a cross-dressing sex-worker faces a challenging assignment with a elderly quadriplegic man. Fourplay handles a wide variety of extremely taboo subjects with great sensitivity and depicts sex acts as potentially cathartic moments in our lives. It’s also riotously funny and deeply heartfelt.

Coldwater

2013, United States

Brad Lunders (P.J. Boudousque) is a teenager who is abducted from his home in the middle of the night – with his mother’s consent – and taken to a harsh wilderness reform facility. There is no contact with the outside world and the retired war colonel in charge (James C. Burns) prides himself on breaking an inmate’s spirit in order to correct delinquent behavior. As we learn of the tragic events that led to Brad’s arrival at the camp, unforeseen circumstances threaten to tear the already eroding reform facility apart, Brad to confront not only his fellow inmates and the personnel in charge, but finally his own sense of what is right and what is wrong. We’re cheating a little here because Coldwater is not at all a straight-forward gay-themed film, but there is a lot of homoerotic tension and imagery. There’s also a healthy amount of male nudity.

Available Light

2015, United States, France and Germany

Available Light is a sexy, funny and even sometimes disturbing experimental feature film by prolific writer/director/actor/artist Todd Verow – the same guy behind Frisk, Anonymous, Vacationland and Bad Boy Street. The film follows numerous unconnected people in different cities as they try to escape their loneliness through love, lust or some combination of both. The film was shot in real locations using only available light (hence the title). The viewer is both a voyeur, watching the characters in intimate situations that are not meant to be seen, and an active participant, imagining what the characters are going through and making connections between them that may or may not be real. And, as anyone who is familiar with Verow‘s previous work could probably guess, there is plenty of hot male flesh on display.
