Movie Reviews

Reviewed by xscd 6/10

I enjoyed the atmospheric, thoughtful and sensitive slow pace of thismovie, but the dialog in important parts, and especially during theclimax, was drowned out by some of the worst, most inappropriate,extremely annoying, repetitive, cloying and very loud music I&#x27;ve everheard in a movie soundtrack.<br><br>The dialog volume should have been turned up and the music _way_ downin this movie, and absent altogether in parts where the dialog was ofutmost importance for revealing the plot. As it was, there were partsin which I could only guess what was being murmured because the musicwas deafening by comparison. I almost stopped watching this movie,despite liking the story and characters, specifically because of theawful &#x22;background&#x22; music that was much too often in the closeforeground. Extremely poor choices regarding the music. Everything elsewas fine.

People watch movies for different reasons. Some people like anelaborate, fast-paced plot. Others enjoy the visual and audioexperience. I am the kind of movie watcher who enjoys a well executedand consistent tone and mood. In &#x22;Dream Boy,&#x22; the mood is bothmelancholy and sweet and there is a constant, if not always apparent,hint of anxiety and apprehension that builds throughout the movie.Capturing a mood is very difficult, and it relies on a number offactors including acting, cinematography, and music. While the actingof the supporting cast in &#x22;Dream Boy&#x22; can be somewhat inconsistent, theacting of the two main characters, Roy (Max Roeg) and Nathan (StephanBender), is very strong. I was particularly impressed with Bender whoseperformance reminds me of Gabourey Sidibe in &#x22;Precious.&#x22; While it istrue that the awkward, inarticulate teenager is well-trod territory ingay cinema, I&#x27;ve never seen the role acted so flawlessly. I wascompletely convinced that Bender was Nathan. Here we have a rareexample of the kind of role that doesn&#x27;t seem &#x22;acted&#x22; at all; it&#x27;s asif Bender embodies the character. Sadly, I think actors with roles thatare over-the-top, histrionic, and melodramatic often get the mostpraise, but it seems equally if not more difficult to portray a shy,introverted character, and the actors who really nail these roles oftendon&#x27;t get the recognition they deserve (re: Heath Ledger in BrokebackMountain). I&#x27;ve read some criticism that Bender&#x27;s performance was&#x22;wooden,&#x22; and it strikes me that if you were not an awkward,inarticulate teenager you might not be able to identify with theperformance, but if you were the kind of kid who stayed inside most ofthe day you will probably find the portrayal of your former selfincredibly accurate and moving.<br><br>There is a lot of attention paid to subtle, non-verbal forms ofcommunication - glances, stares, half-smiles, physical contact - all ofwhich create a much more realistic depiction of young, gay love thanthe more chatty gay coming-of-age movies that I&#x27;m used to seeing. Allof that being said, I understand the disappointment with the ambiguousdenouement, but plots are relatively tangential for me. If the actorsand director manage to depict a convincing mood, then that is all Ineed to be satisfied, and they have certainly done that with &#x22;DreamBoy.&#x22;

Shy teenager Nathan (Stephen Bender) moves into the deep South with hisparents. Right next door to him is teenager Roy (Max Roeg) who isout-going and friendly. They form a friendship which quickly turns intoa physical relationship. Naturally they can&#x27;t tell anybody. Half waythrough things about Nathan become clearer--and more disturbing--andthe movie gets dark.<br><br>I read the book years ago and loved it but I hated the ending causeit&#x27;s so ambiguous. I bought this movie cautiously because I didn&#x27;tthink it could be as good as the book and I was curious HOW they wouldend it. Well the movie IS as good as the book. It&#x27;s low-key but thebook was too. Bender and Roeg perfectly play two teenage boys inlove--you can see the confusion and passion in their faces. The sexscenes are very tastefully done (nothing remotely graphic) and thesetwo are so obviously not teens it&#x27;s not disturbing to watch. I alsolike how their kissing and having sex is treated so casually--as itshould. It (sort of) retains the ambiguous ending of the book. Like Isaid I hated that ending but I&#x27;m glad the movie didn&#x27;t change it. Allthe acting is good--Roeg especially. He has the wonderful actressTheresa Russell as his mom and obviously inherited her actingabilities. There&#x27;s some beautiful cinematography and a good music scoretoo. Low-key and somewhat disturbing but effective. I give it a 7.
