But this film went on for almost 2 hours. The mystery angle and the love story are never integrated very well, as the former stops dead cold while the latter progresses.
Ed Corbin - jaw tightly clenched throughout - plays a 30-something cop investigating drug dealing at a gay hustler bar, and falls for a young male college student in his early 20's who hustles on the side. The young guy has major emotional problems involving a car accident which killed his former partner, and turns tricks as a form of self-punishment and longing for an emotional void. Good basis for a drama, but awkward execution.
The bizarre thing about this film is that it's a love story between the two male leads, but the only sex scene is one between the college student and a girl he works with at a record store (guess he was experimenting on the side). The two guys never even kiss once! Now that's something you'd never see (or not see) in a heterosexual love story. Bizarre.
