Two standout films, the rest can be given a miss - Boys on Film 16: Possession review by MF

Spoiler Alert

The early editions of this series contained some wonderful short films, such as "Cowboy", "Wrestling" and "Protect Me from What I Want" but many of the later editions include little which remain in the consciousness. This edition features two short films which are worth watching, "B" and "Chance", but the rest left me cold, except for perhaps "Sign" which was okay if not a little twee. I didn't even bother watching the rest of the Scottish one about a man trying to hide his (obvious) sexuality from his mother. I've had enough of ridiculous stereotypes. Two or three of them didn't even make sense and had no apparent plot line. Even a short film needs a plot of some kind. I would suggest doing as I do-start watching each film but if it you don't warm to it in the first minute or two, you probably won't end up liking it at all. Short films will continue to be made and they need an avenue in which to be seen, but whoever selects the films for inclusion in this series could pick more wisely.

Maybe 2.5 rating if I was being Generous - Boys on Film 16: Possession review by KW

Spoiler Alert

this set I think was possibly the weakest I have seen in the series, with no real stand out film, but Chance and Signs were the two I enjoyed.

Disappointing overall - Boys on Film 16: Possession review by TB

Spoiler Alert

Overall this recent BOF collection is disappointing but there are 3 or 4 that are worthy of watching; Golden, Chance, Sign, We Could be Parents. A brief summary of all is as follows:-

Golden (very short but excellently done and very thought provoking)

Jamie (two guys; Jamie and Ben hooking up after meeting on a dating app; Jamie is still not out to everyone and opens up to Ben but film ends rather abruptly and could have been so much better)

B (short film with barbie type dolls; some rate this in the collection of these short films but I found it odd and pretty awful to be honest)

Pyotr495 (about a 16yo lad who’s baited by Russian homophobic thugs. It’s tense and very disturbing/upsetting, especially know this goes on in Russia but despite being beaten and humiliated there’s a very surprising and unexpected twist that sees the thugs get what’s coming to them)

When a Man loves a Woman (lad trying to hide his sexuality from his visiting mother by getting his best friend to act as his girlfriend. Humorous but dreadful acting)

Follow Me (student falling in love with his tutor and the infatuation that leads to him stalking the teacher and his girlfriend to fuel his fantasy. It’s filmed leaving you wondering if the fantasy game true or was it just a dream?)

Chance (two troubled men, for differing reason, meet in a park and strike up a relationship that awakens both of them from the voids in their life - nicely shot and the two characters deliver the emotions required to tell their beautiful tale)

Sign (despite the communication barriers between two men who meet, a great love story unfolds but comes under threat when their differences in life choices puts a strain on the relationship but love wins the day - sometimes words aren’t needed!!!)

Away with Me (A bit of a nothing story about two guys; disappointing)

We Could be Parents (this is something different and off the cuff so I won’t spoil it but I iked it)
