CGiii Comment

A film that doesn't quite know what it wants to be...

Is it a dance piece?

Or...is it a pretentious - bizarrely edited - indulgence?

With all the arguments raging on about LGBT actors playing LGBT characters...surely, by mere extrapolation...gay men should direct gay[men's] films...women direct women, black direct black, asian direct asian, etc, etc...controversial? Bugger off! Just pointing out how ludicrous everything has become.

Think about it... 'gay' has been commandeered by everyone!

Gay women, gay queers, gay bisexuals, gay trans...where has the gay man gone!?! Lost in a ridiculous alphabet...obliterated by disrespectful snowflakes.

Giovanni Adams identity poetry on sexuality and his black queer journey from boyhood to manhood and intimacy to isolation roots the narrative of this film that combines spoken word, dance and song. Based on writing originally scripted for his award winning play 'Love is a Dirty Word.'
