Editorial Reviews

In SUN KISSED, Teddy retreats to his professor's desert home to complete his first novel, and becomes instantly smitten by Leo, the handsome young caretaker. When Teddy attempts a drunken seduction, Leo reveals murky layers of a mysterious and possibly dangerous past. Contemporary issues of sexuality, identity and creativity are explored through the young men's quests for love and intimacy. Reminiscent of the cinema of David Lynch and Francois Ozon, Patrick McGuinn has created a daring and surreal desert noir sure to thrill cinephiles everywhere.

Customer Reviews

I found the story to be disjointed and totally bizarre.
Leo E. Williams
This is a nothing movie with a nothing story that feels and looks like a bad high school play.
Michael L. Wiersma
The songs (or maybe it's the same song) that pop up about every five minutes, are bad.

I'm greatly (and, it seems, unusually) blessed in being able to enjoy things without understanding them. I have no idea what Sun Kissed is "about": whether Leo and Teddy are one person, or two, or none; whether this is a coming out story or a psychological allegory or a murder mystery, or all three, or something else; whether anybody was murdered or when; whether anything in this movie actually happened or not. I don't know, and I don't care.

I happen to love movies like this, that defy understanding, that force me either to accept them on their own terms and see if I can enjoy them, or reject them. I gave Sun Kissed a chance, and I'm very glad I did.

I understood nothing, and I enjoyed every second, from the first frame to the last note in the dark. I don't know what it was, and I don't know why, but I sure did like it. It was a rich, lush, sensual experience that I'd welcome any time, anywhere.

There are several reasons to consider 'Sun Kissed' an exceptional movie. What most impressed me is the light it throws on the male world that hates discovering itself as gay, even though this impulse is a reality of its own soul depths. Contemplating the evolution of Leo, we witness his slow sexual awakening, in painful conflict with the prejudices of the character, obsessed with the idea "I am not homosexual." So it is he, the supposed heterosexual, who appears inwardly divided to the point of schizophrenia, in contrast to Teddy, who knows very well that he is "completely" gay and draws a remarkable inner balance from this consciousness, in spite of his moments of despair. As such he shows himself to be healthier and more mature than Leo, even taking a certain protecting and enlightening role toward him.

It is also possible to take into consideration the philosophical aspect of this love story, urging us to reflect about fate, death and the meaning of life, and the sense of love in its relation to solitude. Do we love only because, otherwise, this solitude would be unbearable?

And over these issues hangs a meditative and poetic spirit that ennobles the sexual side, naturally predominant. The loneliness of these two souls in the middle of the loneliness of Nature creates a nearly magical atmosphere. I felt incited to view this captivating movie again, as one might listen again to the music of a great master.

Depending on how you view the world and the nature of art, this film will either bore and confuse or excite and challenge. The non-linear plot line meanders, crisscrossing, doubling back on time and space. The premise of the plot may or may not be true; the characters may or may not exist; the nightmares may be recollections or hallucinations. The characters, if they exist, are imperfect, but the themes of self-realization and love are universal. " I have it in me so much nearer home to scare myself with my own desert places."

I'd watched the trailer and wanted to see the movie. I really wasn't dissapointed. I'm glad I bought it. It was a good purchase.

Usually I 'wish list' movies that may not be keepers, and only buy those that sound like good candidates for my permanent collection, based on editorial descriptions and reviews. This one went on the block as soon as I watched it.

The only word to describe "Sun Kissed" is amateurish. The acting is bad. The dialogue is bad. The songs (or maybe it's the same song) that pop up about every five minutes, are bad. Worst aspect of all is the grainy photography, which makes it almost painful to watch the thing.

Maybe things got better as the movie progressed, but I could only stand about thirty minutes. After the second (or was it the third) time our hero started dancing in drag I gave up.

Great things can be made on a small budget. Unfortunately, "Sun Kissed" is not one of them.
