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.

Land of Storms
Szabi (Andras Suto) is a young Hungarian on a German soccer team. After a fight with his best friend Bernard (Sebastian Urzendowsky), Szabi decides to return to Hungary to fix up a countryside home he inherited. There, he meets Aron (Adam Varga) and a mutual attraction ensues. But when news of their love affair spreads around their homophobic small town, the boys find themselves in great danger. To make matters worse, Bernard also shows up and a turbulent love triangle develops. With exceptional performances and evocative visuals, Land of Storms is a deeply affecting drama. It’s also positively dripping with homoeroticism. Those soccer uniforms alone made us break a sweat!

How to Get from Here to There
Upon the death of his mother, a gay man in blue collar America returns to his childhood home, where he discovers a cardboard time machine that he made when he was a boy. As he uses it to get glimpses of his future, he begins to ponder the weight of his life’s choices. With this ultra-low-budget gay romantic drama, first-time writer-director Kevin James Thornton shows that you can make a thoughtful, complex, heady and moving film with just a little bit of money. Though it may not be for all tastes, How to Get from Here to There is an indie passion project, and the dedication shows.

India Blues

2013, Germany

India Blues is an edgy, bold and passionate love story between two young men who are sometimes afraid to love each other. Through exploring their experiences – both the trivial and important moments – in real time (their first kiss, their first sexual encounter, their awkward silences, their last hug), we are submerged in their universe of love and the feelings that come with it. Pain, lust, happiness, jealousy, attraction, peacefulness, love and anger are shown to us in eight out-of-order segments – chapters in the coming together and the tearing apart of two very different people. Though it’s not for all tastes, this unusually patient, decidedly avant garde film aims to offer the most realistic depiction possible of a gay relationship – through all of its emotional stages – on film. There’s a lot of depth and intelligence even in the film’s slowest, most trivial moments and the two largely unknown lead actors (Christoph Forny and Yiannis Kolios) give incredibly brave performances, showing their characters’ vulnerability in totally subtle ways. Their ‘on the floor’ sex scene is not to be missed!
