Frameline: Futuro Beach

The line was around the corner & the energy was high for the Friday night showing of Futuro Beach at the Frameline film festival this weekend. The artsy movie, set in Brazil & Germany, shows a series of isolated moments from a relationship between 2 men, both reticent ex-military types. The scenario consists entirely of ellipses, & scenes run on without providing any additional information past the first seconds. Unfortunately, the movie is boring, & I heard men around me sighing throughout. The screening was preceded by a slick public service announcement from Gilead which caused an angry outburst from someone who does not like the pharmaceutical company.
