Hand in Hand – Fire Island Fever 1979
At a très gay Christmas party in Manhattan, some guests recall last summer on Fire Island, with very different memories of all the Boyfriend Drama! — and who was to blame.
To say it up front: this 67 minute movie has barely 20 minutes of sex scenes. It’s hardcore alright – but not like today’s porn. The film is a faded snapshot of long ago.
The style of the period with natural lighting, off-center framing of shots, low budget effects, etc. are deliberate choices to realize a very specific aesthetic. Or maybe they were all just really, really stoned.
