Jeffrey (1995)



Jeffrey (1995)

Kada sam imao oko 20-tak godina sve u meni se vrtilo oko seksa. Kao neki antibiotik konzumirao sam ga 2-3 puta na dan , a kada bi izostao postajao bih bolestan.
Nisam birao, muško ,žensko , samo nek je živo biće i da oće sex. Moj tadašnji najbolji drug mi je jednom rekao da nije nikada vidio nekog toliko ovisnika o seksu kao što sam ja. Ja sam mu rekao, ako oćeš da me pamtiš kao najboljeg prijatelja moramo imati sex - i imali smo ga! Iako sada živi daleko od mene kada god se čujemo prva rečenica mu je : "Đe si moj najbolji prijatelju?" Zato seksajte se ljudi, i ne povezujete to sa pričama o ljubavi. kada se zaljubite imaćete potrebu za seksom samo sa njim, a do tada i poslije toga nek vam sex bude samo obična životna stvar, kao dobra hrana, piće, sport, zabava.
Ni danas nije mnogo bolje situacija, mada nemam potrebe koliko ranije! Sve jedno ne prođe ni jedan dan , a da ga ne izdrkam bar 2 puta.

U ovom filmu zgodni Jeffrey odluči da više ne želi da ima sex. Previše je opasnosti od bolesti, side, i drugih budalaština. Odlučio čovijek da živi u celibatu, jer što bi rizikovao da zaradi AIDS. kada mogu popovi može i on. I naravno to treje ekstremno kratko dok ne sretne gospodina pravog.
Ova komedija ne spada u sam vrh filmske produkcije, ali na jedan simpatičan način nam prikazuje muke i nevolje nesigurnog pedera Jeffreya.

New Yorker Jeffrey loves sex, but he's terrified of AIDS, so he decides to beome celibate. Sex was meant to be fun not fatal. Of course it's inevitable he then meets Mr. Right in the hunky shape of Steve.

Dealing with sex and death through humour often works very effectively, but not with a film that doesn't balance light and dark and never hits its mark. It's very episodic and lacks narrative drive pulling the bits together. The movie's theatrical origins show, with musical numbers and camera asides that don't work on the small screen. I was a bit uncomfortable with stereotypical characters and behaviour.

The main weakness though is lack of chemistry between Jeffrey and Steve, a big disadvantage for a triumph of love story. The actor playing Jeffrey seems awkward in his role, failing to convince me.

It's not all bad. Patrick Stewart has fun with Sterling the camp decorator, and Sigourney Weaver does a turn as a motivational speaker.
