Editorial Reviews

From the creator of TV's NOAH'S ARC, PUNKS tells the tale of 4 gay African-American friends in L.A.- shy, virginal photographer Marcus (Seth Gilliam), outgoing lethario Hill (Dwight Ewell), hot-to-trot rich kid newbie Dante (Renoly Santiago), and fabulous drag diva Crystal (Jazzmun). When the hunky Darby (Rockmond Dunbar) moves in next door to Marcus, the foursome wonder if the seemingly straight music producer might be bendable when Marcus strikes up a close friendship with the new neighbor. Meanwhile, Hill struggles in the aftermath of a breakup with his French husband (Rudolf Martin); young Dante struggles to find himself; and diva Crystal deals with the trials of having a high-profile, closeted celebrity boyfriend. Featuring fierce drag queen performances choreographed by Emmy-award winning choreographer Marguerite Derricks and costumed by renown designer Linda Stokes (Missy Elliott, Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige, etc.) all set to the tune of a vintage Sister Sledge disco soundtrack- PUNKS is an award-winning and groundbreaking romantic comedy. Premiered at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival in 2000; nominated for an Independent Spirit Award (2001) and a GLAAD Award (2001), and winner of the Outstanding Emerging Talent Award at LA's Outfest Film Festival (2000) & Best American Independent Feature Film at the Cleveland International Film Festival (2000).

Love the movie, was excited to see it finally came out on DVD after all these years. However was not so enthusiastic about the quality of the DVD itself. It resembles the bootleg movies of yesteryears.

Excellent movie though. I can't get enough of it.

The things I love most about Patrik's projects are his ability to create likeable characters, tell a great story, build a charming chemistry among the cast and make you so hungry for more...KUDOS

The writer is so gifted. I liked its substance and the characters were brilliant in conveying the specific roles. Hilariously funny, the message is of love is conveyed well - where you don't always get what you want, but sometimes a trick of fate happens when we least expect it. The story line has relevance and periodicity in the gay culture. Cast really complimented each other quite well. Moreover, it is nice to see a race that is so misrepresented and misunderstood portrayed in a volatile way, beyond the hustler who is just looking for only a one night stand; rather, love is the optimal objective.

This movie is a "classic" in the fact that it was the first of its kind to tell the story of gay black men during a time when white men were the face of gay culture. It is the precursor of the groundbreaking gay television series, Noah's Arc. This movie's importance in the telling of a part of human history cannot be overstated.

I was not aware this was a promo copy. So that was really disappointing. It needs digital remastering in the worst way. The movie is really good. I LOVE Seth Gilliam.

The movie is great from a material point of view. The film quality of the DVD could have been better. But definitely a worthwhile buy!
