An online-dating hook up takes an unexpected turn cause of the men's different expectations.

10 – 15 | 2011 | Drama | GLBT | Live-Action | USA

Body, desire and violence. This shortfilm by Darius Clark Monroe shows an intricate relationship with unexpected twists. The two actors Carlton Byrd and Harvey Gardner Moore perform in a dance / fight of love where one represents the desire that seeks immediate gratification, the other represents the slower pace of the encounter, the personal revelation, the human exchange. By displaying the contrast between two opposing expectations, the film runs towards a climax of violent confrontation, perhaps a metaphor of the sexual act itself. Everything is highly sensualized: the colors, the photography, the food. The end, delicate and touching, is the other side of this passionate story that suggests its own point of view (you’ll see why) but also deliberately leaves some questions open.

NSFW – Contains Full Frontal Nudity and Explicit Violence.
