Heath Daniels is "Matthew", a gay lad cruising a late night gay porn venue looking for... Well that's just it - we don't quite know. He isn't looking for a quickie, and as the story gradually unfolds we discover that he is recovering from being dumped - and that recovery is not proving easy. His desires for physical attention are countered by his longing for the man who has left him. It's only a chance encounter with another young man there - before it is raided by the police - that might offer him a glimmer of hope, and one that proves addictive as he returns again to find him. Daniels is quite an attractive looking man, which goes some way to helping this dialogue-free film attract and sustain the attention. The photography has an old fashioned cinematic style to it, mixing colour and monochrome nicely and the piano led score builds the senses of frustration and yearning and maybe even optimism well, too. It's an excerpt from this man's life... a work in progress. Worth half an hour of your time.
