Movies: Le Long Weekend

Scene from "Eating Out 2". That is Adrian in the centre... Guy from American Idol and Rebekah Kochan are either side...

All has been quiet over the past few days as I have been taking a few days off work and just enjoying springtime in London. I have also caught a couple of screenings at the London Lesbian and Gay Film Fest at the newly refurbished BFI Southbank

On Sunday it was a collection of shorts filmed in Britain, but it really should have been called Made in London. Most interesting of the films was one called Le Weekend which featured an irritating and sexually ambivalent Frenchman (is that a tautology?) who also is a film maker. The premise is that he comes to London to do a film school assignment and ends up wandering around central London with the help of a friendly (and rather fit) local. It all ends in tears (sort of) but in the meantime there are some great locations of Soho and surrounding areas.

On Monday it was a charming film called Eating Out 2: Sloppy Seconds. Actually any film with Mink Stole in it can't be too bad. And it was a well made sex comedy about a gay man who pretends to be straight to attract the attention of a rather ambivalent man who happens to do modeling for their art class. This was a repeat screening and a lot of people commented on Sunday how Marco Dapper who plays this ambivalent man was rather appealing. Well it takes all sorts I suppose...
