Product Description

David is confronted with a family issue. His cousin, Buck, a United States Marine, has returned from the Iraq war and is living with his father. Not a good situation, given the fathers alcohol related issues, and Buck s handicapped dependency. With Buck s physical disabilities, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and no real family to care for him, Buck can t seem to fit into society. David makes a giant leap in his life, putting things aside, and invites Buck to his home. But what will his friends have to say about this? Things get heated with family and friends who argue Buck is the government s problem. David must do what is right.

The script is very superficial.

I'm not claiming middle ground; I find hope and despair in both positions.

I really dislike the fact that this movie had no sound at all.

As I write this, there are only two other reviews of A Warm Wind, one attacking all who do not "support our troops," the other citing the "fascism" of the Bush administration. I'm not claiming middle ground; I find hope and despair in both positions. A neighbor in my Northern Michigan forest and lake development put out two signs in the fall of 2004, one "Support Our Troops" the other endorsed "Kerry/Edwards" in the presidential race. I agree with one critic that we owe apologies and an enormous debt to those (and the families of those) killed and injured in Iraq, and with the other that we should not have elected that cowboy who used his presidency to prove that he was more of a man than his daddy. This film arouses both feelings -- in an incredibly slow, tortured presentation.

I bought it because I thought it was a gay film. It's not. It has a couple (maybe 3) gay characters in it, and the straight, injured marine. Buck, couldn't care less that his helpful cousin David is gay. In fact, when he isn't distracted by his PTSD, he's laying plans to find a boyfriend for Dave. The pace of the film is one of long silences between slow delivery of speeches (for once, my much needed closed captions get ahead of the dialogue!). Still, I'm glad I bought it and may look at it a few more times, simply because it gives me some space to arrange my own responses to the war we should not have fought and our responsibilities to those we let volunteer to be maimed or killed.

The marine hero, Buck, survived a roadside bombing of a humvee without a scar on his excellent body - a puzzle given that he must be lifted to stand and moves only in a wheelchair or with crutches that encase his lower arms. (Another supposedly badly injured marine has only the trace of a scar on his cheek.

I was informed of this movie by the writer (Jeff London) and had a chance to watch it and see how it stood up to military realism etc. I have seen some other reviews and their take on the movie (whether pro war/antiwar or referencing the gay characters etc)but I can also tell these are viewers who did not see the movie from a military background but just as another movie...

As far as the characters, I though Buck was a little less gung-ho than most Marines are but in this case it was a very good thing. There are many movies out there that can portray the military with this gruff and rugged characteristic but this movie didn't need that, it was (in my eyes) meant to focus on the individual and his response to the war. While his character explained his emotions it never seemed out of touch with real claims from fellow service members or the kind of descriptors I have used to explain "over there". His character was the "transitional character" that most of us faced when getting out of the military.

There were gay characters, there were drunk characters, and there were narcissistic characters but I didn't see them played out as "those" stereotypes, I saw them as what I believe they were intended to be, the average family in this day and age. You have very different people all responding in their own way to something they have no true first hand knowledge of (except Buck) and how they related to him coming home and their view on who was to blame.

I found it very refreshing to see a movie where it wasn't all guns & bombs like most but actually showing the effects of war on a young person who may or may not have even believed what he did was right. Even through the (as some have termed it) pro-war sequence where they go over Iraq and whether it was right/wrong etc.

David is a 20-something gay man, owner of a small construction business, and seemingly in a rut with the rest of his life. He hears that his cousin, Buck, with whom he spent a lot of time up through high school (before Buck went into the Marines), has returned from Iraq with severe injuries, and is living with his alcoholic father. Ignoring advice that Buck should be taken care of by the government directly, David decides to extend an offer to Buck to live with him, and the two work on reconnecting after so many years of drastically different activity. Ultimately, David begins to help Buck through his issues, while Buck helps David gain perspective on his own.

This is a very different kind of film for gay writer/director Jeff London. While it has gay characters (two, possibly three if my "gaydar" is working), it is most definitely NOT a "gay movie," per se. It also addresses an issue (supporting the troops fighting the war) from a rather hawkish position, although it does make it clear that supporting the soldiers is a different matter than supporting the politics (or politicians) who put them in harm's way.

Acting seemed capable to me, nice soundtrack (includes some original tunes), capable photography. I thought the ending (several minutes of voice-over while looking at a lake) was more than a bit abrupt, and should have been planned out better. Overall, I give the film three stars out of five.

I've always enjoyed Jeff London's films. They aren't cinematic masterpieces but they are heartfelt portraits of the lives of ordinary men (gay or otherwise), which I appreciate. Many of the elements I enjoy were present in A Warm Wind as well, particularly in the caring relationship between cousins David and Buck. That said, the film veers into propaganda during the dinner table conversation about the war in Iraq with every character ganging up on the one who opposed it. That scene could have been an important conversation where differing view points were aired and, where, if agreement wasn't achieved, at least they could have respected each other's differences. This was a major disappointment.
