Film #28: Protect Me from What I Want (2009)

directed by: Dominic Leclerc
language: English
length: 14 minutes
watched on: 4 September

A short gay-themed film that I watched one day last month, which rather impressed me in a couple of ways. It’s the right length to show an encounter and nothing more, and leave you wanting, and in many ways the storyline is heartbreaking – a young Muslim boy hooks up with another boy on a council estate in Leeds but leaves when he can’t reconcile himself with it.

The acting’s alright, but could have been better, and as I said, the film leaves with a desire for more – although as I reckon that’s its purpose, it seems to have served it well. Overall, like this review to mirror it, short and sweet.
