i watched shelter a while back and it remains to be one of my favourite gay films. considering that pickings for gay films are rather slim and you always get low budget, crappy productions *coughs*adam&steve*coughs* but shelter is really good. it has such a simple storyline but the character development is really good. we see how zach, the supposedly straight surfer boy, giving up his dream to take care of his nephew and ultimately falling in love with his best friend's brother...culminating with a hot passionate make-out scene. one that gives me instant hardon every time i watch it. ;)
and the movie has one of the best songs ever. lie to me by shane mack. and this line is so bittersweet - 'couldn't you offer me a little dishonesty, promise me you'll try, you'll lie to me.'
here's the music video and it's a little bit NSFW.
i am just too many things
