Sharp and sexy, this quartet of short films is the provocative look into the secret gay lives of four African-American men. In the first chronicle, Wes rushes home to a dinner party that his powerful wife is throwing. Imagine his surprise when he meets his brother-in-law Trent for the first time and he feels the stirrings of lust.

Four short stories centred around black men who sleep with other men. As with most gay themed movies the production values aren’t brilliant however I found three of the four stories interesting and entertaining. The acting is adequate and very sensitive and touching at times, namely in the second story which centres around Robert. The short “playlets” deal with some important issues but the writing doesn’t go far or deep enough to make much of an impact. The sex scenes, which resemble the old nineties erotic thrillers, are done as montages in soft focus and are therefore a little sickening and clichéd, but this can be forgiven for the unconventionally normal portrayal of gay lives (not a drug or dance floor in sight). Definitely worth a look.
