Storyline

Crim is a businessman and father, whose business success is dependent upon how he presents himself to the world. In the locker room after a basketball game, he and a fellow player named Stanley are roughhousing as usual, when Crim angrily accuses Stanley of making a gay play for him. While many of the others in the locker room try to calm Crim down, stating that Stanley is just putting him on, D, Crim's roommate of five years, seems quietly to be the one most annoyed by Crim's reaction to Stanley. D and Crim talk about the issue later when they get back home, Crim's reaction to Stanley, only the latest in many vehemently homophobic statements and actions Crim has made in his life, which could destroy D and Crim's relationship, especially as Crim seems unwilling to acknowledge many aspects of his own life not only to the world but more importantly to himself.

An evergreen problem and yet another resolution-free film.
18 May 2018 | by Havan_IronOakSee all my reviews

After a homophobic slur in a locker-room, a closeted ex-basketball player is confronted by his room-mate (lover) of five years to admit who he really is.

While this is in no way a new issue, the feelings presented here and the damage done through denial is addressed a tiny bit. This film would have been a revolutionary hit in 1980 and I'm guessing that this issue will still be evergreen for decades to come. But this film brings very little that is new or fresh to the table.

The leads are attractive and it's no hardship to sit through 20 minutes of this but I'd have loved to actually have gotten somewhere by the end of it.
