Thoughtful and touching
26 December 2001 | by (San Francisco, USA) – See all my reviews

A thoughtful and touching film, DRIFT tells a simple break-up story with a narrative twist midway about a young gay man, a screenwriter in Los Angeles, embarking on three different scenarios of a love triangle and romantic entanglements.

I attended the film's world premiere at the San Francisco Gay Film Festival without a great deal of expectation (as you know... you get quite a mix of films there... a couple of exceptional ones and others are just very so-so), and I was pleasantly surprised. I was moved walking out of the theater and the film stayed with me for several days.

Mr. Lee, whose other works I haven't seen, seemed pretty young on stage at the Q&A after the screening. As a Gen-XYer, Lee has produced a surprisingly mature work about relationships. He said that the work was personal. And I believe that the film being personal really added to the emotional impact of the piece.

There aren't a lot of gay films about relationships, and this is certainly a well-made one. I highly recommend you taking a look at DRIFT, although there are some parts which could be considered slow and over-literary/pretentious to some audience. As icing on the cake, there are also some hot and sexy scenes.
