Audience Reviews for Dorian Blues
Mar 15, 2015Low-budget with decent acting and a pleasant script. It's nice that a light hand was applied to a film that could have been overwrought.
Mar 13, 2011This movie was such a pleasure for me because I saw a lot of personal experience parallels. I had no brother but the story is made so much more fun because of the brother. Fun movie!
Nov 18, 2009Having recently watched what amounts to a seemingly endless parade of terrible excuses for GLBT Cinema, finally I have found a gem again and had my faith restored. <i>Dorian Blues</i> has obviously been made on the cheap but the incisive, relevant and realistic writing and winning lead performance (Michael McMillian) help sell this touching film. Dorian's family is fairly typical in terms of this kind of film but the interactions between him and his elder brother and his complicated relationship with his father are deftly played and the confrontation at the end of the film by his friends and his mother both surprises and feels utterly accurate and doubly poignant for that. Dorian himself is a fantastic character - quick witted but not selfish with it, he is friendly, charming, slightly goofy but with an undercurrent of quiet rage that he does not have an outlet for. This is a quietly brilliant film.
Dec 14, 2008Obviously low budget. Mediocre acting. Starts out promising and then becomes a soapy bunch of whiners feeling sorry for themselves.Sunil J Super Reviewer
