interesting gay indie film in NYC

Following up on a positive review in the NY Times Friday morning (accompanied by a hot picture of one of the actors), I went this evening to see the new independent gay film titled "A Four Letter Word." It was really fun. The director, Casper Andreas, a Swedish gay guy, previously made the film "Slutty Summer," then decided to take one of the supporting characters from that film and build a new film around him.


Anyway, this is not the "great gay film," but it is amusing, well acted and shot and edited with an appropriate musical accompaniment, and the male leads are all played by very hot guys who show off most of their bodies (including everything in a nude yoga class scene). Particularly hot is Charlie David, who plays --- of particular interest to those reading messages here --- an escort, a major supporting role.


The only place it's playing in NYC right now is the Clearview Theater on West 23rd Street, where it opened Friday and sold out all its showings. The performance I attended this evening also sold out. If it continues to do good business, they'll keep it playing for a week or two, but if you're in NYC and really want to see it, don't hesitate, because there's no predicting how long an indie film may run. The good Times review is balanced by what was reportedly a dismissive review in the Village Voice, but I suspect this weekend's box office is due to the Times review, which concludes: "Though unlikely to appeal much beyond gay audiences, the movie has something to say about hypocrisy and the dangers of snap judgments. As for the male nudity, well, you won't hear any complaints from me." The reviewer was Jeannette Catsoulis. Good gay date flick!! (No, I have no connection with anybody involved in this film, I just enjoyed it and enourage others to turn out to support good quality independent gay films....)
