Description:
Ova sedmica po svemu sudeći će proteći u znaku kratkog gay filma. Uostalom na ovom blogu možete pronaći već dosta filmova iz ove kategorije. Često su kvalitetnije urađeni nego mnogi dugometražni filmovi, a već popravilu ostavljaju nas da razmišljamo o samima sebi.
Neznam da li u Beogradu i dalje radi bioskop “Partizan” , al ovaj film me je podsjetio na nekadašnja dešavanja u tom kinu. Za one koji to neznaju to je bioskop u kojem su se puštali str8 ppornići. U njemu su se skipljali uplašeni gayovci, napaljeni, isfrustrirani , cigani, slučajni prolaznici, likovi koji bi tu došli samo da im neko izdrka ili popuše, ili pak oni koji su nalazili sigurnost u mraku bioskopske sale. Mnogi matori pederi su takođe voljeli ovaj bioskop, jer mnogim posjetiocima u mraku nije ni bilo bitno koliko imaš godina već samo šta si spreman da uradiš tokom projekcije. Sala je izgledala kao da je preživjela drugi svjetski rat. Zadnja tri reda počupana, drvene stolice koje neviđeno škripe, svaka druga potpuno neupotrebljiva. Prije nego sjednete na nju bilo je potrebno da dobro pripazite kako nebi sjeli na nečiju izdrkotinu iz predhodne projekcije.
Uglavnom večina je ulazila u salu tek nakon početka projekcije, kako bi sakrili identitet prilikom ulaska u salu!
Već početkom projekcije posjetioci počinju da se pokreći, šetaju sa strane , pilje u mraku pokušavajuči da razotkriju ko je otvorio šlic. U ćoškovima sale i u zadnjim redovima formiraju se prave male orgije, drkanje, pušenje, a nerijetko naočigled svih padne i kompletno jebanje.
Jednom sam otišao tamo i sjeo u sredini reda, a pored mene sjedne neki visoki lik. Malo po malo počnemo da se vatamo i drkamo jedan drugom. Nagne se prema meni i šapne:” ajde mi ga puši”; Ja mu odgovorih: ” Žao mi je ali gadi mi se! “
Nakon toga izdrkamo na naslon stolica ispred nas i napustimo salu. Onako prilikom izlaska iz kina bacim pogled da vidim kome sam to dirao kitu i produžim svojim putem. Odem u Knez Mihajlovu, operem ruke i naručim kafu. U neka doba vidim u kafanu ulazi onaj isti drkadžija iz bioskopa. Ja se napravih da ga nisam poznao i nastavim da čitam novine i pijem kafu. Na izlasku mi dobaci: ” Eh kakav si ti čovijek, kad ne umiješ ni da se rukuješ ljudski” Ja mu rekoh utiho : ” Očito sam se prevario u tebi, vidim da se ne bojih mraka, al kad mogu da se drkujem mogu i da se rukujem sa tobom.” Popili smo piće i upoznali se. Poslije smo se dugo družili, upoznao me sa svom svojom familijom, klincima, prijateljima…
Svi su me zvali crnogorac, a malo ko mi je znao i pravo ime.
Ne znam zašto ovo sve ispričah, al ovaj film me podjetio na mračnu salu za drkovanje!
Finding love can be difficult, but surely a backroom on a Saturday night is the last place you should go looking for it. Certainly the men in this Spanish short seem to be searching for just one thing and it clearly isn’t a boyfriend – or is it?

 

For in this realistic depiction of backroom life, we get to hear the inner thoughts of those whose need for sex see them seek out that area of a club or bar, that is but an indoor cruising ground. And yet and inspite of the subject under discussion, male nudity is seldom on view in a piece that is more akin to a cinematic representation of lust and if anything, loneliness. Yes it’s all very seedy, but how could it be otherwise, as we view the scene through the eyes of Iván, a backroom virgin who “shouldn’t have come,” turns to go, but instead finds himself being serviced bottom end up as this short rapidly heads to its sexual climax.
Thankfully along the way Morales sets the atmosphere rather nicely, mixing a throbbing club sound with images of men of all ages and types seen cruising a maze of dark corridors that whilst new to some, are more than familiar territory to those ever on the lookout for fresh meat. Only in between such carnal encounters, Morales injects a series of cutting comments, questioning if the mens’ boyfriends or for that matter their girlfriends, know where they are? Yet the most poignant words come from an older man who looked upon in disgust by the local stud, offers the biting remark that “when you’re my age and they look at you with the same eyes that you look at me – then you’ll see.”
For the star of the show is the narrative itself, as voiceover after voiceover aptly conveys the reality of the situation and how for some men, kissing on the lips is a no-go area, after all “who does he think I am – his boyfriend?” Yet that is the bottom line here, given not everyone present is looking for sex. Only do those men have the courage to voice their need for love and affection in such a soulless environment? A telling work indeed.
