5.0 out of 5 stars All 8 films are of roughly equivalent quality (GOOD) March 25, 2007
I can't point to one or the other and say it doesn't belong. All deliver the titillating, exciting goods. All the stories end just when you wish they would continue. Is that a weakness? The answer depends on whether you like short stories or not. Presumably, if you're browsing this collection, you like short vignettes of gay life. Now, keep in mind, these are all young, good-looking, even model-quality gays. More along the lines of fantasy than realism. And it's all about hooking up, sex, rather than the more complicated or dramatic aspects of mature adult life. Is it worth watching? Yes. Is it worth $[...]? That seems a bit steeper than comparable straight films. I would buy a used copy, myself. Or get a rental. Film distribution companies are always hitting the gay audience with higher prices. Only because it's difficult to find these things at, say, [...].

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice Compilation. November 16, 2006
With the exception of the first two works, this anthology of short films is really quite good. Several are real standouts, particularly the hugely funny and entertaining "Latch Key." The filmmaker who did that one has s a very bright future indeed. But, other films on the disc are also quite striking. This is well worth your investment - the perfect compilation of films to show to friends after making a batch of popcorn or retiring from a nice dinner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Movies About Hooking Up October 5, 2008
These eight short films, some of them so short that they barely get started before they are over, are introduced by a young man whom we first see taking a shower. At least he is not a hustler as in "Boys Briefs 4". He tells us that these films are all connected in that they are about "hooking up." The eight films in the order they are on the DVD: (1) "Cabalero" directed by Jarrah Gurrie; (2) "Shakespeare's Sonnets" by Samuel Park; (3) "David" by Robert Fiesco; (4) "Boys Grammar" by Dean Francis; (5) "Latchkey" by Garth Bardsley; (6) Little Boy Blues" by John McCrite; (7) "Between the Boys" by Jake Yuzna and (8) "Postmortem" by Eldar Rapaport."

In accompanying footage to the films, the directors, likeable to a person, talk about their works and explain what they hoped to achieve. Samuel Park, for example, reminds us that he had to cut out some of the dialogue that would have let us know that the two characters, students at Harvard in the 1940's and inspired by the book and film "Maurice" were caught up in trying to find out if Shakespeare wrote his sonnets for a young man. Since we don't have that piece of information, unfortunately the film doesn't quite make sense although the chemistry between the two young men works.

"Boys Grammar"-- sad to say-- is based on actual events in boys' boarding schools in Australia, in this instance a gang rape of one of the young men. "Latchkey" has a nice element of suspense as two different couples engage in various stages of coupling before the mother gets home from work. "Little Boy Blues" is one of the better contributions and deals with the subject of safer sex after the first round of AIDS deaths. One of the men involved in the tryst is an older man whose lover has died of AIDS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Important shorts January 5, 2014
Verified Purchase
The Boys Briefs series is an amazing collections. Coming out, coming of age, dealing with sexual experimentation, learning about ourselves, They speak to the gay experience with voices from different culturals and heritages. I've watched my copies over and over again throughout the years and always find something new each time I watch. This is an important collection of short films which I cannot recommend highly enough!
