Movie Info

A young writer in search of the peace and quiet required to finish his latest novel retreats to his professor's secluded California home, only to find himself drawn to the estate's handsome caretaker in Soda Pop and Sperm Whale director Patrick McGuinn's steamy erotic thriller. Upon arriving at the sprawling desert abode, budding novelist Teddy is instantly drawn to his professor's dutiful servant Leo. In the lazy hours the follow, the pair bonds warmly over drinks before mutual curiosity finds them frolicking beneath the sheets together. Later, as Teddy begins to learn more about his new lover, he gradually starts to suspect that Leo may have murdered his young wife, and that the newly arrived writer may experience a similar fate if he fails to exercise proper caution when dealing with the increasingly unstable servant.

A poorly crafted grab-bag of ideas barely elaborated upon enough to sustain a 20-minute short.

When a movie aspires to be gay pornography but can't even manage that, well, you know you've got a bad movie.

Is Leo schizophrenic? Did he kill his ex-wife? Did he have an ex-wife? Did he kill Teddy? Is Teddy dead? Who knows, and frankly, who cares?

Artful and intriguing, but ultimately difficult to connect with

One would like to say that gay indies are better than ever, but then something like Sun Kissed comes along and drags the whole shebang down to rock bottom again.

Watching the film, you get the ain't-quite-right sense that a slab of clay intended for Bergman has been mistakenly shaped by an acolyte who should be setting his sights on watercolors.
