2.5/5 No Score Yet Redwoods (2009) Yes, everyone loves a handsome stranger, but at this stage of the game, we need our handsome strangers -- gay or straight -- to do something new and interesting, not just recycle the same very familiar three-act story arc.‐

1.5/5 17% Eating Out: All You Can Eat (2009) a harmlessly silly gay L.A. comedy of manners that's far more notable for its profusion of abs and pecs than it is for such things as acting, story, and characters.‐

2.5/5 No Score Yet West 32nd (2007) Writer/director Michael Kang seems to be going for a Mean Streets vibe, but he's no Scorsese, at least not yet.‐

4/5 100% Law of Desire (1987) a pivotal and unmissable piece of the Almodóvar puzzle, a romp that is Pedro at his young and kinky best.‐

4.5/5 100% Aruitemo Aruitemo (Still Walking) (2008) There's also a touch of Bergman-style family angst here, and in the tale of the drowned golden boy and the surviving son, even a little bit of Ordinary People.‐
