Blog without links

Kao što vidite od danas nema više linkova za download na ovom blogu. Mislim da vam neće biti teško da ih nađete , ako baš poželite. Pištite mi na mail ako vam što treba!
Da ne prevodim baš sve što sam dolje na engleskom napisao, ali zaista na neki način mali producenti imaju pravo da se ljute na sve te linkove.
Lako je ovim velikim produkcijskim kućama, oni su ionako puni para jer prihodi od prodaje filmova im zbog ovoga zasigurno neće mnogo pasti. Ali ša sa malim nezavisnim produkcijama. Neki su mi pisali i objašnjavali u kavoj matrijalnoj situciji se oni nalaze.
Kao što ste primjetili na blogu se nalaze mnogi kratki i dugometražni filmovi nezavisne produkcije.
Kako god ih ocjenjivali morali bi cjeniti njihov trud i rad i omogućili nam da uživamo u emocijama koje nam ove filmske priče bude!

Description:

Već duže vrijeme tražim ovaj film da ga pogledam i napokon mi se posrećilo da nađem linkove za njega. Nisam se pokajao , mada sam da budem iskren očekivao nešto poput serije Dante's Cove, možda zbog nekih glumaca koji se i tamo pojavljuju. ( Charlie Davis i Thea Gill ). Iako film nema nikakvih dodirnih tačaka sa tom serijom prijatno sam se iznenadio.
Film nam priču o dva najbolja prijatelja Chase Rousseau i Tyler Davidson koji sa koleđa idu na ljetni odmor kod Tylerovih. Chase je svoju seksualnost uspješno skrivao sve dok nije iskoristio pogodan trenutak da se povjeri prijatelju. Tyler 100% str8 biva potresen i zbunjen, ali ipak odlučan da sa Chaseon zadrži prelijepo prijateljstvo. Kao otvorena i iskrena osoba povjerava njihovu tajnu svome ocu Nathanu. Otac ga podupire u namjeri da je prijateljstvo važnije od seksualne orjentacije. Ubrzo za Chasea saznaje cjela Tylerova porodica , Majka i sestra, Tylerova djevojka pa čak i komšija.
Chase prilično povečen mladić koji obožava svog prijatelja, voli da slika, uvijek nasmijan i nekako stidljiv lako privlači simpatije ljudi oko sebe, tako da ga tylerova porodica sa lakoćom prihvata.




Međutim Nathan, Tylerov otac u Chaseu vidi melo više nego sinovog najboljeg druga.
Ovakva priča se može završiti na mnogo načina, ali ono o čemu sam ja razmišljao nije Chase koji je na ovaj način doživio coming out, nego Tylerov otac Nathan.
Mnogi pederi ne gledaju blagonaklono na oženjene ljude. Valjda zato što im nije jasno kako neko može voljeti ženu, a jebati se sa muškarcima.Iako je to suludo razmišljanje vrlo je često kod pedera koji naprosto ne mogu da vole žene!


Teško je to objasniti, ali ima ljudi koji sebe ne vide u tome sve dok im se ne desi "nešto" Znate već kada im se dopadne neki kolega ili prijatelj i počnu da razmišljaju o njemu na drugi način. Neki od njih to potiskuju i ne dozvoljavaju da im to bude neka smetnja u životu, posebno ako su oženjeni i imaju svoju porodicu koju istinski vole i čuvaju. Da li su ti ljudi sretni? Na neki način jesu jer imaju podršku i ljubav u porodici. Međutim uvjek ima neko ali... Šta ako se njihova prava priroda probudi i tu u porodici se pojavi neka nova osoba. Kako emocionalno pomiriti sve te ljubavi koje nas okružuju? Šta ako porodica sazna da je njihov največi oslonac u životu gay?

Treba biti naučen živjeti dvostrukim životom i svima dati ono što od nas svi očekuju - nepodjeljenu ljubav.
Moja iskustva su u takvim pričama zaista velika. Možda zato jer me privlače odgovorni principjelni muškarci. Ne znam zašto je tako , ali 3 od 4 moje najveće ljubavi su oženjeni.

A priča obično počinje ovako:




Tel poziv:

-Zdravo prijatelju, napokon da se čujemo. -I meni je drago da čujem osobu sa kojom sam se toliko dopisivao. -Znaš, kao što sam ti rekao ,ja nisam nikada ranije bio sa nekim muškarcem, ali mislim da u tebi mogu imati dobrog prijatelja, to ti i nudim.
-Drago mi je , ja to od tebe i očekujem..."

Slijedi sastanak , prvo viđanje, beskonačne priče o svemu i svačemu, odlasci na zajedničke izlete, upoznavanje sa familijom, prijateljima...
Sve funkcioniše besprijekorno. Skoro nikada ga nisam pitao kako funkcioniše sa svojom curom, činilo mi se kao da ulazim u nečiji zabran iako sam i sa njom uspostavio prijateljski odnos.
Dok smo zajedno u njemu sam vidio ne samo najboljeg druga i prijatelja nego i čovjeka kojeg iskreno volim. A u njegovim očima sam video to isto.
Ono što je počelo da pravi problem je njegov osijećaj da je propustio mnogo u životu i želja da sve nadoknadi.
Jednog dana saznam da je u nekom kratkom periodu "moja" ljubav upoznavala i jebala se sa mnogima. Varanje, osjećaj izdaje i sva gorčina koja se tada pojavila u meni se nemože opisati.
Prošle su godine od tada, ja imam čovijeka svog života kojeg opet dijelim sa nekom ženom. A on? On se oženio, dobio sina i čini se živi srećnim životom. A da li je zaista srećan? Da li je našao nekog? Ako jeste kako funkcioniše između porodice i tog muškarca? Često se to pitam !

Mulligans is the kind of film that should appeal to all of the guys out there who have ever wanted to boff their best friends dad; which one can only assume is an enormous demographic. Tyler Davidson (Derek Baynham) has brought his best friend Chase (Charlie David) home to his family, Nathan, Stacey & Birdy Davidson (Dan Payne, Thea Gill & Grave Vukovic) for a vacation. Chase integrates himself well into Davidson family routines, getting along well with everyone and being supportive while Stacey voices concerns of her young daughter’s dalliances with genital exposure and inappropriate lesbian tendencies.

He also finds himself partaking in some work at the golf course with Tyler and attending some wild ‘n crazy keggers with Tyler’s summer girlfriend Bre (Amy Matysio) and her perpetually horny friend Christie (Nhi Do). Problems arise when Chase decides to tell Tyler that he’s a big Moe, which stirs feelings of man-on-man arousal in Tyler’s hunky father Nathan. It isn’t long before Chase and Nathan are secretly playing hide-the-sausage; which starts innocently enough, until Stacey catches them in the act. This somewhat dirty and unconventional plot may intrigue those curious about the perverse coupling, but the sloppy filmmaking, overacting and crappy writing are likely to stifle that intrigue within mere minutes.

Unnatural conversations along with peculiar plot transitions and character motivations are the main issues with Mulligans. With such a disjointed and stilted screenplay, it’s unsurprising that the actors often overact and misread scenes. Dan Payne manages to hold his character together with the most effect, showing inner-struggle and turmoil with his closeted married man character. On the other hand, Thea Gill gives an over-the-top stage performance that simply doesn’t work on film. The director really needed to step in with her and say “smaller Thea, smaller; you’re not in Stratford”. A mystery within Mulligans is how anyone thought Chase was straight in the first place.

The boy might as well have been wearing a pink baby-T with a rhinestone penis on it, while donning a Madonna tattoo just inches above his vagina. Some occasionally inspired cinematography and a penchant for visual montage show that director Chip Hale may have some talent, but David’s screenplay desperately needed some rewrites before production.




Other sources:

Charlie David (“Dante’s Cove”) is taking the controls of his career as the star and writer of this gay update of The Graduate. Tyler (Derek Baynham) brings his college buddy Chase (Charlie David) home for the summer to hang out with his surprisingly hot dad, Nathan (Dan Payne), and mom, Stacey (Thea Gill, “Queer as Folk”). They have the picture-perfect, All-American life going on here in quaint Prospect Lake. The father-son duo golf with regularity, there’s always a family barbeque and the conversation is straight out of “Leave It to Beaver.” While Chase knows he’s gay, he has never come out to his friend, who tries in vain to set him up with girls. But when Chase comes out to his summer family, the cracks in the family dynamic start to show. Nathan looks with a lusty new eye to his son’s best friend, and when he and Chase are left alone for the night, their mutual passion bubbles to the surface, and clothes are quickly shed. The drama hits a peak as Tyler and Stacey return early and discover the shocking secret about this young dad. Can Nathan remain true to himself and keep his family together?



Sparkling dialogue, a fast pace and lots of screen time for the ridiculously gorgeous Charlie David keep this indie compelling throughout.

Duration: 62 min
Rating: 4.5/10

Description:


Posjećujete li sajtove tipa gayromeo, gaydar ili slične? Volite li video chat programe kao što je icuii u kojima se bspomučno dopisujete i drkate sa nekim nepoznatim strancem? Dosta pedera koje sam upoznao na ovaj način kao da se stidi toga. Obično počnu sa pričama kako na te sajtove idu isključivo radi radoznalosti ili kao "Da vidim šta tamo ima" Neki se pravdaju kao da su na te sajtove sasvim slučajno došli. Naravno većina njih ima najmanje dva naloga na MSN ili Yahoo messengeru!

Sa većinom od njih nakon malo priče možete jedino očekivati po koju partiju seksa i to je to! Teško da će te ih upoznati onako kao što bi ste upoznali nekoga sa kim slučajno započnete razgovor u autobusu ili vozu!
Skoro nimalo detalja iz njihovih života nećete saznati, posebno ako se pojebete sa strancem koga ste upoznali preko interneta! Ipak sa nekima od njih sam uspio uspostaviti kontakt koji je nesto malo više od standardne šeme "Dođi, vidi me, pojebi me, otiđi" U iskrenom razgovoru sa njima ipak dođete do toga da se ne razlikuju mnogo više od većine vas koji ovo čitate, uključujući i mene! Kad nam se napune jaja i uhvati nas ludački nagon za seksom, mnogi od nas će u lijenosti otići na net , naći nekog sa web kamerom i izdrkati ga! I šta je tu strašno? Po meni ništa, al se većina pedera stidi toga!

Neki drugi , koji nemaju naviku za net dateingom idu u porno bioskope, mračne parkove ili javne WC-e tražeći prigodnu kitu ili neko zavodljivo dupe za jebanje u nekom ćošku nakon čega će glavom bez obzira pobjeći u sigurnost doma svoga.
Al većina kada ih pitate da li su sve to iskusili odgovoriće vam kako je to odvratno i da to nikada ne bi uradili. Uostalom šta se to vas tiče?


To je neka dvoličnost kod pedera koja se ispoljava u dva suprotna prohtjeva. Jedan je da želimo nekoga sa kim možemo uspostaviti odnos povjerenja i emocionalne povezanosti, a drugi da se unatoč tome pretvorimo u životinju koja uživa u ogavnim stvarima kao što je seks sa nepoznatima, u trojci, četvorci, grupni seks itd
Jednom sam se upoznao sa jednim likom, oženjen, pomalo zbunjen, dobrog izgleda i naizgled sigurnog u sebe. Šta da vam pričam, lik redovno ide u crkvu, voli da priča o moralu i poželjnim normama ponašanja i sličnim stvarima! Nakon poprilično dugog druženja upadnemo u situaciju u kojoj je seks bio neizbježan. Naravno ja sam ga iscenirao kod mene doma. I usred jebanja počeo je da viče:" Jebi me, rasturi mi pičku, razvali me ko poslednju drolju...." Bio sam zaista iznenadjen, al sam ga izjebao baš onako kako je želio!

Nakon toga ponašao se kao da se ništa desilo nije! Meni sve to naravno nije smetalo jer sebe poznajem dovoljno dobro i znam šta želim i očekujem.
Jednom prilikom usred seksa u stan mi upadne prijatelj sa kojim sam na sreću već ranije bio. Lik nas zatekne kako se jebemo, ja nagužen preko kreveta u dnevnoj sobi a ovaj moj divlja li divlja i naravno opet pun priča tipa " Voliš li moj kurac kurvo..?!" Moj prijatelj mrtav ladan sjedne na fotelju i kaže samo se vi izjebite, taman dok ja popušim cigar.

Naravno da smo se izjebali i na kraju i mi zapalili cigar. Uz priču moj jebač kaže nešto ovako: " Znaš , ja ranije nisam sebe prihvatao onakvim kakav jesam sve dok nisam sreo njega ( misli na mene). Shvatio sam da zaista uživam u nenormalnim stvarima kao što je seks sa muškarcima" Opet sam ostao zaprepašten! Šta je tu nenormalno i nemoralno?
Uglavnom ovaj film me je podsjetio na sve to! Prepun je seksa , a radi se o romansi dva lika od koih je jedan neumorni lovac na žrtve radi seksa, a drugi nepopravljivi romantik. U ostalom zar nismo svi i jedno i drugo?!

Description:

Baš je teško kad izgubiš nekoga koga jako voliš. Ne znam kako vi ali ja potpuno prolupam i treba mi dosta vremena da se oporavim nakon toga. Jednom sam čak išao i kod psihijatra! Prije 4 godine. Strahota! Teška lekcija, a naučih da da se pripazim kada su emocije u pitanju! Ne valja baš sve slijepo vjerovati, a kada smo kod povjerenja onda unaprijed tražite samo ono što i sami možete pružiti! Bez laganja samoga sebe i drugoga!
No da ja sada ođe ne glumatam psihijatra za one koji su izgubili voljenog bolje da se vratim malo na ovaj film.



Jeff, 30-togodišnji peder izgubi partnera Marka u saobraćajnoj nesreći. Onako jadan i tužan otkrije da se Mark dopisivao sa jednim italijanskim web dizajnerom Andreom i pošalje mu mail u kojem mu objasni da Marka više nema. Nakon dva tri razmjenjena maila Jeff odluci da pozove Andrea u posjetu i tako obadvojica zadovolje svoju znatiželju.
I nakon nekog vremena Andrea sjeda u avion pa pravac u USA. Tako se upoznaje sa Jeffom, pričaju o Marku i otkrivaju nepoznate detalje o njemu. Film presporo teče. Ko neki usporeni snimak, bezbroj bespotrebnih detalja koji traju toliko da gledaoc naprosto može da zaspe. Na primjer prikaz Jeffove nesanice, vti se po krevetu, ustaje, seta pa opet liježe i dok se sve to izvrti na filmu ja sam zaspao i film nastavio da gledam ujutro!
Inače obadvojica su zgodni muškarci , nimalo feminizirani i kad bi ih sreo najradije bi obadvojicu strpao u krevet. Nadam se da nisu tako usporeni ko na filmu.
Neznam šta da vam kažem još o filu a da ne ispričam cjelu priču. Nije vrijedan bilo kakve hvale, naprosto ako se ubijate od dosade i želite nešto da vas uspava pustite ovaj film u DVD player. Uspavaće vas sigurno.



VARIETY.COM
By RONNIE SCHEIB

A contemplative grace note in NewFest's raucous chorus of self-affirmation, this muted two-hander traces a three-day mourning interlude linking a dead man's lifelong platonic pal to the deceased's Italian lover-in-waiting. Helmer Yen Tan ("Happy Birthday") relies on the contrasting thesping styles of the two leads and a cool, minimalist aesthetic (fixed camera placements within emptying frames) to flesh out his mood piece's slender plot. As full of sexual tension as it is devoid of sexual activity, "Ciao" qualifies as a quietly charged change of pace for the gay fest circuit.

After the sudden death of his best friend Mark, it falls to Jeff (Adam Neal Smith) to put his affairs in order. Discovering that Mark had been conducting an extended, intimate email relationship with a Web designer named Andrea (Alessandro Calza) who was about to come to Dallas, Texas, to meet Mark for the first time, Jeff writes to inform Andrea of Mark's demise and head him off at the pass. Upon reflection, however, he invites Andrea to come to Dallas anyway.


Linked by death, the two men explore previously unknown aspects of Mark previously and, gradually, the strength of their mutual attraction to Mark shifts gears, going beyond concern about the departed middleman to focus directly on their own revved-up (if funereally tinged) chemistry.

Helmer/co-scripter Tan conceives of his two characters as complementing each other within a minor key. Thus, Jeff, an investment banker, reads as a composed, almost emotionally shut-down chap, whether by nature or in reaction to Mark's death or by some combination of both never quite made clear. Indeed, Tan pairs Jeff with female confidante Lauren (Ethel Lung) in certain scenes so he can elucidate his otherwise unspoken feelings.

Andrea, being Italian, necessarily comes off as more expansive (it would be difficult to appear less), albeit in a gentle, comforting way that's at odds with his blatant sexiness: He infuses every situation with a serene acceptance that always seems poised to turn into something far more sensual. Thesping successfully conveys more through silences than through dialogue, though Calza, who co-scripted, phrases his English lines with seductive sensitivity.

Tech credits are above average. Clare Floyd DeVries' subdued production design matches Jeff's quasi-sterile orderliness, while leaving plenty of room for the sexual promise quivering in the air.

Description:
Jeste li kada bili na Thailandu? Ako jeste primjetili ste da su svi ljudi nasmijani, na samo iz kurtoazije nego stvarno, iskreno nasmijani. Bez obzira u kakvim uslovima žive i čime se bave, uvjek će te vidjeti osmjeh na licu ! Ne znam zašto je to tako, možda zbog religije ili fantastične prirode, bog ima je podario da žive u zaista impresivnom okruženju. Priroda se pobrinula da Thailand izgleda kao raj na zemlji.U takvom okruženju zaista je teško biti ne nasmijan!


Sa druge strane, u tu zemlju hrle milioni Američkih i evropskih turista koji uživaju u meni neshvaćenoj prostituciji. Zaista toliko kontrasta za jednu zemlju u kojoj nećete vjerovati nema ni obične nudističke plaže.
I pored svega toga tradicija je jaka na Thailandu. Tajlanđani imaju izgrađen sebi svojstven pogled na svjet i odnose medju ljudima i mišljenja su da je ljubav najjača pokretačka snaga čovjeka. I prema svemu što ih okružuje pružaju srce i ljubav!
Teško mi je to objasniti nekom ko nije bio tamo, ali na Thailandu je nezamislivo naići na ulicu u kojoj nema cvijeća i bilja prema kojemu se ljudi odnose kao najrođenijem biću!

Ovaj film je po mom ukusu predugačka romansa dvojice tinejdžera koji su svoju prvu ljubav podjelili jedan sa drugim! Lijepo osmišljena, romantična muzika i nekako nedorečen kraj! Ako baš imate slobodno 2,30 sata vremena i volite romantične priče pogledajte ovaj film!
Film je više po mjeri istočnjačkih tinejdžera, jer se neki elementi filma ne mogu uklopiti u zapadnjački način razmišljanja. Na primjer, potpuno je nerazumljivo da žena dovede djevojku u kuću i predstavi je svom od alkohola izgubljenom mužu kao njihovu davno nestalu ćerku. Ili način na koji tinejdžeri "prihvataju" homoseksualnost. Naprosto kažu šteta, ali to je tako i tu se ništa ne može. Nema dalje osude i proganjanja toga.
Karakteristično za Istočnjačke narode. Svidjelo im se nešto ili ne, to naprosto prihvataju kao činjenicu bogom datu! I nema tu šta da se komenrtariše.
Osim naravno kada se radi o njihovim najbližima, treba im podosta vremena da se uvjere da neke stvari ne mogu promjeniti!

By RUSSELL EDWARDS

Homosexual romance and family grief are entangled to mildly appealing effect in the sprawling yuletide meller "The Love of Siam." Courting gay auds and straight friends, progressive Thai drama garnered impressive B.O. in pre-Christmas weeks, making it a huge local success despite its budgetary and narrative limitations. Outside Thailand, the film may surface on the gay fest circuit and, with the right environment, in young-adult sidebars.

After a 20-minute prologue introducing prepubescent versions of its youthful protags, yarn moves to present-day Bangkok, where teenage Mew (Witwisit Hiranyawongkul) is lead singer and songwriter for a Thai boyband called August. On the cusp of great success, Mew re-encounters long-lost buddy Tong (Mario Maurer).

While both are having difficulty relating to their adoring girlfriends (or g.f. wannabes), both lads inwardly have no doubt about their feelings for each other. Much of pic's success in Thailand was attributed to its gay theme, and the working out of true love between the two boys, despite societal and familial pressures, takes up a substantial amount of the running time.

Given equal emphasis, however, is the long-ago disappearance of Tong's older sister Tang (Chemarn Boonyasak), depicted in the pic's prologue, and its devastating toll on Tong's family, especially his now-alcoholic father Korn (Songsit Roongnophakunsri). Compounding the family's collective grief are Korn's periodic, booze-inspired delusions about his daughter's imminent return home.

While attending one of August's recording sessions, Tong meets the band's personal assistant June (also Chemarn Boonyasak). Since June is a dead ringer for his missing sister, Tong decides to hire her to impersonate his deceased sister and soothe his drunken father's troubled soul. Western auds will have some trouble accepting that mom goes for the plan (in a comedy, maybe), and the narrative briefly flirts with the idea that supernatural elements may be at work before adhering strictly to meller conventions.

Writer-helmer Matthew Chookiat Sakveerakul ("13 Beloved") also co-edited and even composed some of the boy-band songs, so his emotional engagement with the material is unquestionable. However, his passion transcends his directing ability, and pic could benefit from a trim for Western auds. Perfs, particularly by youthful amateur thesps, could have used a firmer hand.

Art direction is pro, but the sound is unfortunately reminiscent of the unfiltered recording style favored by Southeast's Asia's digital revolution. In contrast, the songs are mixed par excellence.

Title refers to the fact that much of pic's teen-romance action transpires around the Siam Square shopping district of contempo Bangkok.

Nekih stvari je bolje ne sjećati se ili ih zadržati daleko od bilo kakvih uspomena. Naprosto za neke događaje je bolje imati totalnu amneziju. Ona nas štiti od ružnih snova, strahova, nesanica i osjećaja da je bolje nekamo daleko pobjeći. Al na žalost mnogi ne mogu zaboraviti to nešto što kriju duboko u sebi!
Pričao mi jedan čovjek kako se kao klinac družio sa jednim starijim rođakom. U nekoj kući na nekakvom tavanu. On mnogo stariji od njega učio ga je kako se pravilno ljubi, mazi, drka... Sve dok mu jednom prilikom nije pokazao ono što rade muškarci sa muškarcima.
Godine prolazile i taj dečko postao momak i na kraju čovjek. Al i dalje nešto razmišlja o tom tavanu, sjeća se tog starog madraca, paučine , nekih stepenica... Nikako da se sjeti te zadnje lekcije nakon koje se više nikada nije popeo na taj tavan.

Užasno se osjećam kada neuki ljudi pedofiliju povezuju sa homoseksualcima. Ono sa čime je to jedino povezivo je bolesni izvitopereni um, koji svoje žrtve traži u nezaštićenoj djeci. A tragovi nakon toga ostaju tako duboki da se nikada ne mogu zamesti.
Mislim da bi gay udruženja trebala jasno imati u svom programu stavku Borba protiv pedofilije i na taj način jasno pokazati koliko je to strano i nespojivo sa homoseksualnom orjentacijom! Na kraju pedofiličari nisu uvijek pederi i ne stradaju samo dječaci!
Uostalom koliko teške posledice nosi žrtva takvih manijaka možete vidjeti u ovom filmu. Dječak koji traži odgovore u homoseksualnoj prostituciji i dječak koji misli da su za jedan dio izbrisanog sjećanja krivi vanzemaljci koji su ga oteli pa vratili na zamlju.

Zaista težak film, ali vrijedi ga pogledati. Režirao ga je Greg Araki, čitaocima ovog bloga već dobro poznat po filmovima The Doom Generation (1995), The Living End (1992) i Totally Fucked Up (1993).
Na temu pedofilije takodje možete pogledati i film L.I.E. - Long Island Expressway režisera Michael Cuesta.

By Paul Hurley

Based on Scott Heim's award-winning novel, Gregg Araki's Mysterious Skin is a difficult film that deals with the difficult subject of child abuse. Suffice to say that this is not for the faint-hearted, and film's depiction of certain cinematic taboos - most of all the portrayal of sex between an adult and a child - makes for decidedly uneasy viewing. This is not to say that the film in any way condones such behaviour - far from it - but the leap forward in what is acceptable to a mass audience is both startling and uncomfortable. The subject is both the film's central theme and its chief talking point and will dominate any discussion on what is otherwise a somewhat earnest, painfully hip yet ultimately uneven and morally ambiguous work.

The story revolves around two teenagers from rural Kansas named Brian (Brady Corbett) and Neil (Joesph Gordon-Levitt), who have now drifted apart but share a common memory of something that happened when they were eight years old. The former friends have different recollections of a night that saw them both lose five hours of their life. Brian, now a somewhat geeky adolescent, is convinced that both of them were abducted by aliens. He obsesses about the fact, watching programmes on alien abductions all day long and talking to anyone who crosses his path about it.

Neil on the other hand, knows exactly what happened. Now a confident and extremely handsome young man, he has moved to the big city and plies his trade as a hustler on the gay scene. Always confident of his sexuality, Neil knows that the alien abduction was in fact a kidnapping and sexual abuse case involving the two boys and their charismatic baseball coach (Bill Sage), a charming figure that could persuade the boys to do just about anything he wanted.

And that's exactly what he did. With increasingly disturbing scenes the film plays out the boys at first kissing to becoming more intimate with each other until the Coach himself becomes involved. It's genuinely shocking stuff, and although nothing is exploitative in the way the film was made, the result is one of sheer horror that is extremely difficult to watch.

The boys clearly react differently to the event, with Neil confused about his own feelings towards his abuser. While there is certainly no condoning of such a relationship, the film examines the impact of such an occurrence with a fresh and uneasy eye, which some viewers may find tricky to assimilate. Despite a standout performance from the extraordinary Joseph-Gordon Levitt as Neil and a memorably creepy turn from Sam Cage as the abuser, this is tough stuff: both to watch and to fully empathise with.

Description:


Istraživanje sopstvene seksualnosti kod ljudi može da traje jako dugo. Obično se misli da je sa tom fazom završeno izlaskom iz puberteta. No nije baš tako. Ponekad se ljudi začaure i ne miču nikud dalje od mjesta ukojem su se zatekli.

To je posebno izraženo kod ljudi koji se mladi ožene i odmah upadnu u nevolje tipa kako sačuvati porodicu, zaraditi novac i slično! Prođe im i po desetak godina u mukama i jadima, a sebi se ne posvete nimalo ili nedovoljno. I kad im se prvi put situacija u porodici stabilizuje i bude bez stresa, počnu da razmišljju o sebi. Obično ih neki događaj podstakne na to! Iz mog iskustva znam mnoge koji su tek u toj fazi sebi priznali da su biseks ili da ih naprosto privlače i muškarci! I često sebi naprave haos od života jureći za nečim što su propustili!


Ovaj film ima elemenata istraživanja seksualnosti ali kod mlađih ljudi, kada im je uostalom i vrijeme da upoznaju sami sebe! Dva druga i dvije cure od kojih je jedna cura lezbijka, jedan gay ,a ostali st8 odu u jednu kuću da prenoće. Provode veče pričajući o seksu, o toleranciji, o voajerizmu, slobodnom ponašanju . Intersantan mi je momak koji sa gnušanjem odbacuje mogućnost da ga privlače i muškarci, a kako se film odvija dopušta sebi ono što nije nikad ni pomislio da bi mogao!
Nije neko vrhunsko filmsko dijelo, ali interesantno za pogledati!

Not entirely surprisingly for a film with such a blatant come-on title, "the sex movie" emerges as nearly all talk and almost no action. Still, it's all talk about sex, which will titillate some. As a quartet of hotties spend the night defending -- when not compromising -- their claimed Kinsey Scale identifications, enough yelling and pontificating and dirty-secret-airing occurs to make the pic feel like a middling Off-Off-Broadway play that found its way to video. Still, it's a painless watch that will provoke discussion among home viewers regarding just how bi-curious (or tolerant) they are.

After a day's work in various capacities on a San Francisco porn shoot, four friends -- ones who'll readily tear like emotional piranhas into each others' insecurities -- repair to Kris' (Michelle Mosley) loft apartment. She announces, "I woke up and thought damn, I just want to lose my hang-ups," commencing drink-enhanced mind games that reveal contrary if fairly predictable things about macho straight dude J.D. (Matthew Tyler), man-hater lesbian Heidi (Eleese Longino) and gay guy Rafe (Mike Fallon). Diverting if schematic first feature for writer-helmer Colton Lawrence is decently acted and adequately packaged on a shoestring.

Svake godine se ponavlja isto. Kako idu ljepši dani , sve manje imam vremena za blog i filmove. Nekako nemam vremena za kompjuter, a i posla imam više. Tako je nama koji živimo na moru.
Jeste li razmišljali o tome da imate djecu?
Silne debate o tome mogu li pederi da usvajaju djecu ili ne, kako zakonski to omogućiti ili možda onemogućiti, je li to prirodno, tj koliko je to neprirodno i slično postaju suvišne kada odgledate ovaj film, kako god ga shvatili.

Činjenica je da i gay populacija ima nedoumice o tome. Ono što se meni vrti u glavi nije vezano za neka gay prava, ljudske slobode, demokratičnosti društva ili pitanje tolerancije.
Nekako uvjek u takvim razmišljanjima više stajem na stranu djeteta, a manje štitim prava roditelja , ma kako ih zakonski imenovali.
Ne sporim da i u "gay porodici" dijete može osjetiti svu ljubav i pažnju koje mu je potrebno da odraste u zrelu osobu. Al se zapitam da li zaista može biti srećno u sredini koja je zakonski to omogućila, ali ne i opšte društvenim normama.

Ko poznaje dječju psihologiju, mora znati da su dijeca nevjerovatno iskrena i da u jednom periodu svog odrastanja kopiraju roditelje i ljude koji ga okružuju. Pri tome mogu biti jako surova prema pojavama za koje čuju da su neprihvatljiva.
To je jedan od uzroka nasilja koje se ispoljava medju djecom u školama. Ako se potrudite da propratite tu problematiku siguran sam da će te biti zaprepašćeni koliko daleko to može da ide i u kakvim se sve oblicima to ispoljava.

Da li ste spremni da svome dijetetu nametnete neviđenu torturu ostale djece i društva u cjelini zbog toga što ima dve tate? Mislite li da bi vaša sredina to mnogo tolerantnije prihvatila?
Ako mnogo putujete , već ste shvatili sa kakvim se problemima susreću i ostale zemlje koje su to zakonski omogućile.
Može se o tome mnogo pisati i diskutovati, al prije nego se odlučite da podržite mogućnost da gay ljudi usvajaju djecu, probajte u mislima da proživite dio života tog djeteta! Koliko bi ste kao roditelj patili da gledate kako ostala djeca viču za vašim djetetom: "Tata ti je peder", Drugovi da komentarišu " Pa i ne može biti ništa drugo no običan peder ko što su i oni njegovi" , pri tome da niko i ne pomisli da je to dijete str8, da voli djevojke jednako ko i većina ostalih ljudi!

Inaće film ne ulazi u te horror životne detalje. On ipak ima srećan završetak, pun je razumjevanja i unutrašnje ljepote!
Nekima će postaviti i pitanja koja ne žele da čuju. Na primjer, Šta ćeš raditi nakom 40 -te godine?
Nisi više za gay klubove, trans muziku, a još uvijek dobro izgledaš, umiješ da voliš i pun si snage?
Da li je vrijeme da se vežeš za nešto trajnije što će ti ispuniti ostatak života? I u čemu ćeš se pronaći.
Pogledajte ovaj film, toplo vam ga preporučujem!
Na žalost postoji samo titl na engleskom jeziku.

From IMDB: Author: guy-bellinger (guy.bellinger@wanadoo.fr) from Montigny-lès-Metz, France

For his first fiction film, documentarist Vincent Garenq did not choose the easy way out: he chose to write and direct a comedy of manners about a sensitive subject: homosexuality and parenthood. Describing the life of a gay couple is delicate and may give rise to either dirty or coarsely 'comic' scenes and Garenq's first and main achievement is to have been able to show two men in love and in conflict just like the two partners of a heterosexual couple, which makes the title of the film ('Like All Others') particularly relevant.

One simple example: when the couple formed by Manu (Lambert Wilson) and Philippe (Pascal Elbé) find each other again after a long breakdown, we spectators feel no embarrassment at all at seeing them exchange a kiss. We have developed a liking for the two characters in the meantime and feel good, just like when a woman and a man who have split up for a while kiss tenderly for the first time after wards. Another success is the cruel 'romance' that unites Manu and Fina (Pilar Lopez de Ayala) and then pits them against each other. The moments of shared -and later unrequited -love are filled with true emotion, particularly thanks to Ayala's radiant looks and freshness. On the other hand, Garenq manages to go through all the aspects of the question and convincingly shows how hard it is to become a gay parent (homosexuals have to show their credentials whereas ordinary parents can breed children whatever their defects) or a surrogate mother (bearing a child for another and part with it as of the delivery is no pleasure cruise). These scenes always ring true, which is no small feat.

'Comme les autres' is in turn comic (Manu's repeated blunders, his family's reaction when he announces he has left his partner, will marry Fina and have a kid), moving (see above) and sociologically relevant. Wonderfully played by Lambert, Ayala, Elbé and the always reliable Anne Brochet, this film would be excellent if Garenq did not indulge in the easy solution in the end, while he had managed to avoid it throughout. Indeed by making Philippe, the man who hated babies, become a sugar daddy out of the blue, he demands a suspension of belief that is too much. At least for this writer.
