Fire Island the movie trailer

Recommended Posts

I saw the movie & liked it.  Fire Island is beautiful and no place else like it in the world. 

For once, there was on somewhat honest portrayal of drug scene in the Pines.  Drug use is way more widespread and pervasive tho. Not exactly a fun crowd on the third day of their binge.  Not everyone of course - but enough to give a distinct energy that isn’t idyllic.

As with many "gay" movies, I found this one dreadful. Insufferably bad. Now I realize that I'm no ordinary homo. I may be an elitist with high-brow taste, but I can also enjoy camp and silliness, if it's well done and makes me laugh out loud. This movie is nothing but stereotype cliche, an insult to Asian gays, and bad acting. The script stinks, too. The premise - finding love or a good fuck between rich and poor on Fire Island - is absolutely unoriginal and uninspired. The creators like to equate this effort as a gay Pride and Prejudice, and that just makes me want to VOMIT.

There aren't many great film representations of Fire Island so I was curious to see how they managed the camera work. I had my fingers crossed and hoped for the best. I couldn't wait for the film to be over. There isn't one character I enjoyed. Not one character I would like to share a drink with.

This drug/sex theme on Fire Island is SO TIRED. So 1980's porn. How anyone who survived AIDS can stomach this painful banality is beyond me. I've written quite a bit about my life on Fire Island over at the other place. When you live and visit a house that is not drug or sex motivated, the experience is otherworldly.

I long for someone new and talented to create that side of Fire Island. This was not it.

@RockHardNYC, my goodness, there is so much amazing acting and prolific storylines in this movie. I think you need to watch it just a few more times to completely understand all the nuances. :)
