When the seed of West Side Story's "Somewhere" is planted into the soul of a gay child, the quest of the film begins. Nine inter-connected scenes interpret this landmark theatrical event, while charting a molten course through the depths and shallows of the urban gay male experience. From the late-night club crawl to the buff-bunny gyms, from the threat of anti-gay violence to the place where condemnation, compromises and closets are a thing of the past, the film exposes the sexual, spiritual and political yearnings at the heart of gay America.

As bad as a movie can be
16 June 2000 | by (Greenwich Village, NY, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the worst: a self-indulgent one-man show filmed for all those people wise enough to stay away in the first place. It seems that David Drake had all the usual gay experiences of coming out, of over-indulging, etc., and wants to tell us about it. The script is in some sort of quasi-poetic lingo. In order to create excitement, there are lots of quick camera moves, and drum-like intensifying sound. It gave me a headache, and I had to walk out. It was intolerable. But David Drake was standing at the door (I saw this at a festival and the auteurs were in attendance) and he wouldn't let me leave because the on-screen performance was reaching a crescendo. If I opened the door at that moment, the effect would have been ruined for the enthralled masses. So I waited for the great climactic moment, and walked out. You really don't want to see this movie!
