Editorial Reviews

This American Indie drama follows several endearing characters as they wade through life seeking happiness, peace, and ultimately love. Will (Ronnie Kerr) leaves the Navy after many years, soon reunites old friends, and begins to start his new civilian life. His friend Rich tries to set him up with ruggedly handsome Josh (Ian Roberts) and while there is immense chemistry between the two, timing and certain ideals never seem to align. But when a shocking tragedy happens, the two are paired together to pick up the pieces and sort through the after effects. Saltwater is a story about men of all ages, finding love, losing friends, navigating their way through life, and knowing it's the journey rather then the destination that's important.

Why do so many relatively recent gay movies have to "gaymasculate" their characters? The main character in this one is supposed to be a Marine recently arrived back home and he's got to be the limpest spaghetti strand on the planet. He's supposed to be gay but he seems more like an asexual. Freaked out by any hints of gay sexuality, he gets all drippy about wanting to find the right guy, can't understand why gay men even have sex, and generally acts like something ripped his balls off while he was away. When his oh-so-queenly-stereotyped best friend (and explain that one to me, please!) commits suicide for no apparent reason, he and a gigantic hulk of man he's been feuding with since the beginning of the movie have to dispose of the guy's things. When they FINALLY get around to having sex (which of course we knew would happen from the beginning), main character goes all prissy again. They find suicide guy's big dildo and harness and main character acts like he's never seen anything remotely like them before. Big slab o'man asks him to put on the harness, which he finally does after whining and being coy for 10 agonizing minutes. And after all that the guy looks like about as sexy as Paddington Bear.

It seems to me that many gay films are trying for more mainstream acceptance by stripping away any evidence of strong sexuality or real relationships. The characters have become whining, prissy eunuchs who just want "true love" and marriage and wouldn't think of cruising or hooking up. Do we have to trade genuine passion in whatever form for this kind of "gaymasculation?" C'mon, boys, make us a movie about real gay people, not paper dolls.

An annoying and depressing movie that secretly hates its gay self.

Will (Ronnie Kerr, who is also the writer and producer of the film) is fresh out of the Navy after a number of years, and staying temporarily with his older friend, Rich. Rich plays matchmaker, despite Will's protests, and arranges for him to meet the hunky Josh, also a former Navy man. They get off on the wrong foot, until a devastating event forces them together, and somewhat puts in perspective their need for each other.

The plot is a bit formulaic and predictable, and the secondary characters - while somewhat realistic - are mostly over-the-top stereotypes. I give the screenwriter props for including different generations of gay men as friends, and the attempt at illustrating the minefields one might encounter in trying to cultivate a relationship. Josh is played by Ian Roberts, a former Australian rugby star who created quite a stir when he came out as gay in the late 1990's. Overall, it is a good effort with capable actors, but I think it fails on several levels, in my opinion. No nudity, likely a light R for sexual references. I give it three stars out of five

I really did try to give it every opportunity. But when the movie mainly consisted of a year's worth of bad parties and two guys who kept missing their opportunity because of a simple disagreement a year ago, and then their best friend, the consummate host of all these horrid parties, abruptly commits suicide for no apparent reason (unless it was the parties that did it,) finally bringing the two guys together for once without having an argument. I don't know, it just felt really forced to me. I mean they went on arguing and disagreeing for a whole year, and now everything is just suppose to fall into place? Life doesn't work that way.

Still, I tried to give it a chance because I thought the two guys were... Well, not exactly cute but, sweet! They were sweet. Giganture and his bean. But then, and I know this will sound crazy, given the comment above but I thought they should have given the relationship more time to develop. I mean, when you think about it, they never did. It was just a series of bad meetings over the course of a year, during which they probably said no more than five words to each other, and it was usually the wrong thing, or the wrong time to say it. The only time they ever spent any real time together was in the beginning, at that luncheon which went sour. But you can't build a relationship on that.

I don't know. It just irked me. I guess the ending was fair on that point though. I give this a two and a half. You'll just have make up your own minds.

As far as gay themed movies go, this one was a sleeper. Makes people in the life with alternative lifestyles look shallow, stupid, and less than human. Don't know if it was the vapid story line, or the creepy actors or what, but for my money I'd say pass on this one.

I know so many independent film artists trying to get support for their projects and can't help asking; how did this abortion get made? The entire movie on every level was sophomoric (I'm talking high school which is still an insult to high school stage productions). The plot is a cliché of clichés (two guys meant for each other keep f'ing it up) that can sometimes work with talented actors, good direction, imaginative camera work and good writing to beef up the story and quell the cliché aspects. FORGET IT HERE! If anything, they tossed gasoline on the fireplace of clichés by adding queeny characters (whom I have nothing against if it is done respectfully but the representations here are an insult to queens). The out former athlete actually tries to rise above the mediocrity but that can't save what another reviewer rightly called a train wreck. To experience what really good acting and direction can do, see August with Murray Bartlett (currently on the HBO series Looking) giving a first class performance in concert with other talented actors and a director that does more with less of a plot that, though a cliché, builds layers of complexity and tension through the actors' talent. August isn't perfect (see my review) but it is high art compared to this nonstop disaster. Run, do not walk, away from this mess.
