Not just a pretty boy gay movie despite having all the hallmarks -- there is emotional and sexual complexity that make it a good movie on the whole not just an ok gay flick.

There are certain portions of even indie film cinema that go unnoticed a lot.  And when these particular movies end up having some popularity going behind them there is generally a sort of curiosity as to how anyone could like them.  Gay and Lesbian movies seem to suffer this stigma a lot as it hasn't yet hit hard for some people that it is not a requirement to be gay or lesbian to enjoy them (that or the idea of two guys making out is just repulsive, but let's pretend that it's …

Pros: acting, story, development of characters     Cons: ...     The Bottom Line: "Tuesday 3:00 a.m.,   Once again I'm wide awake.   Waiting for time to mend this part of me that keeps on breaking"   ~ C. Jay Cox     Latter Days centers around two polar opposites - the Mormon church and homosexuals. First we have our playboy about town, Christian, that has a new boy toy nightly. He is fun loving, adventurous, …

"LATTER DAYS"    Deservedly Welcome      Amos Lassen and Cinema Pride    Several people have asked for my opinion of a film that has become somewhat of a modern gay classic film and one of the bestselling gay films of these times. No I am not talking about "Brokeback Mountain" which I shall eventually get around to. The movie is "Latter Days (TLA Releasing). It is a beautiful little movie and deserves all of the accolades heaped …

LATTER DAYS is a classy little film that holds its own among the light love stories out today. And yet it is more: some unique phobias and prejudices are examined very genuinely and the result is a movie that gives us not only characters about whom we care but enlightens us as to both sides of an ongoing issue: homophobia.     Bright, crisp writing and directing by C. Jay Cox, LATTER DAYS presents a tale of a West Hollywood effervescent young man who plays the bar scene and one …

I name and describe everything and classify most things. If 'it' already had a name, the one I just gave it is better.

About this movie

Wiki


Christian (Wes Ramsey of the washboard abs) is a waiter, party boy, and first-class man magnet. Elder Aaron Davis (Steve Sandvoss of the goofy grin) is a straight-laced Mormon missionary. When he and three elders, including the uptight Ryder (Joseph Gordon-Levitt,Mysterious Skin), move into Christian's Hollywood apartment complex, it's clear something's got to give. Christian tries to make his new neighbors feel welcome, but they're put off by his flamboyance--the short-shorts, the rainbow flag in his yard, etc. When Christian's trash-talking pals at Lila's restaurant, including the cynical Traci (Amber Benson,Buffy the Vampire Slayer), bet that he can't seduce one of these clean-cut young men, he takes them up on it and sets his sights on cute, soft-spoken Aaron. As a pretense, he asks to learn more about his Church, but where they really connect is over their love of old movies, everything fromPsychotoTommy. When Aaron accuses him of being shallow, however, Christian starts to wonder if the bet wasn't such a good idea--plus he's starting to fall for the guy. Turns out the closeted Aaron feels the same way about him, but when his roommates find out, he's shipped back to Pocatello where he faces excommunication. Written and directed by C. Jay Cox (Sweet Home Alabama), a former Mormon missionary,Latter Daysfeatures Mary Kay Place as Aaron's disapproving mother and Jacqueline Bisset as the acerbic, yet supportive Lila.--Kathleen C. ...
