Tim Blake Nelson,
What's the point of this short movie? If it is supposed to be an homage to Kenneth Anger, then the result is really disappointing; what we get to see on the screen has been done before lots of times (ok, nothing bad in that); but what's really not acceptable about the project is that it lacks any "freshness", and looking at it, one really wonders if the final product would had ever been shown to anyone, if it wasn't for James Franco directing it. Don't be deceived by the fact that it was awarded a Teddy for best GLBT-themed short movie at the Berlin Film Festival. That, really, looks like a move to have Franco showing up for the ceremony to accept the award (he didn't, by the way), rather than a testament to the quality of the movie.
