Storyline

Winston arrives at NYU as a freshman, knowing he's gay and wondering where that fact will lead him. He falls hard for Tom, his temporary roommate who's soon to leave for L.A., and it's a big risk to express these feelings. Meanwhile, temptations and opportunities abound in the Village: sex in public toilets, uninhibited people at parties, and knowing Act-uppers. Plus, there are misinterpreted signals, like the ones Winston gets from a Moonie. With help from his hometown friend Anne, Winston keeps his equilibrium and finds the perfect place to meet someone: the Judy Garland rack at Tower Records. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Don't Bother
30 July 1999 | by BishonenSee all my reviews

This movie is extremely inane and illogical; it is predicated on the premise that a cute young college kid cannot get laid on campus--- IN NEW YORK CITY!!! There is some decent photography but none of the characters are interesting and it is a good example of the lazy thinking that goes into a lot of "gay cinema": mainly that if you put some goodlooking guys up on screen, then it will fly as a dramatic piece. A lot of audiences may buy into this half-baked nonsense despite some very implausible situations and rather tiresome body-worship politics but there is much better gay cinema out there: check out the films of Todd Haynes or Barbara Hammer for instance... "Friend of Dorothy" is tiresome nonsense, strictly gay film-fest filler.
