Special Features


Editorial Reviews

J.C., a bisexual hustler with a mama fixation, sells himself to anyone who'll pay his price: "I said, ten bucks or I'll break your hand!" Turning tricks in the balcony of a movie theater, cruising a bathhouse, or hanging out along The Meat Rack, J.C.'s only interested in cheap sex and quick cash. But when he sees an old coot attacking a Jersey-girl named Jean, J.C. rescues her -- and is immediately forced into making a porno by two knife-wielding transvestites! Plus: Peter and Buddy are throwing a 4th of July Fire Island Party and you're all invited! Leather-Queen George will be there, bragging about his rubber bed sheets. So will The Lavender Guru, a loquacious flower child incessantly babbling hippiespeak, and Bobby, who's "new to this whole thing," will be having a panic attack. Two very different but equally nostalgic time capsules of the 1970 Gay Scene, full of love, lust, and naked butts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously good stuff December 12, 2003
Don't let the campy description fool you. Both of these films are minor classics and major groundbreakers of gay cinema. Meatrack is a strange morality tale that features some excellent cinematography and Sticks and Stones is a fly-on-the-wall account of the dissolution a relationship against the backdrop of a party on Fire Island. Both were made in 1969, before The Boys in the Band and all of the other great Hollywood films came out. The shorts included are also a cool indication of the kind of things guys were watching in the dark of their own dens or at peep shows in the 1960s.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs up for Meatrack, not Sticks and Stones February 4, 2009
I thoroughly enjoyed the first feature on this dvd, The Meatrack. It actually surpassed my expectations based on my previous Something Weird video experiences, with more depth to it than most of the stuff they release. On the one hand, it's similar to the heterosexual "nudie" movies SW Video frequently releases in that there is frequent male nudity (mostly back side), but the film itself is far more interesting than SW Video fare such as Country Cuzzins or the Chesty Morgan films. If anything, I would compare The Meatrack to Cher's early film, Chastity. As in Chastity, The Meatrack's protagonist is haunted by early childhood experiences, experiences which cause him to sometimes make questionable decisions in his later life.

I have to say that I could only sit through about 25 minutes of Sticks and Stones. While the actors were generally attractive and scantily clad, the dialog was incredibly boring.

The extras were generally not particularly interesting, either. The first couple were sort of interesting from a historical perspective, but most of the extras are silly soft-core films with bad music and horseplay. The final extra is an early soft-core video featuring legendary John Holmes; I finally understand why he became so famous (or is that infamous?). The Meatrack, indeed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sticks and Stones March 25, 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD for the second feature "Sticks and Stones". Both features are from the time period when the Supreme Court had just opened the door for pornography if it had socially redeeming and artistic merits. Sticks and Stones is an interesting time capsule of life on Fire Island in 1969. The movie is poorly written, poorly directed, has lots of soft Gay porn, and is so bad that it is funny. All the cast of characters are present from 1969; a leather queen, a flamer, a hippie, a guru, quarreling lovers, a bull dyke and others make up the ensemble. A low budget film, a poor man's Boys In the Band, it is a great film to have in a collection of period pieces to see how far we have come as a movement. The Meat Rack is pure soft porno peddled as a art house film. The extras on the film are historically interesting especially West Hollywood's First Gay Pride March/Parade in 1970. Favorite line from Sticks and Stones, "I loved that dog."
