Product Description

An edgy drama about a gay teen s tumultuous decent into drugs and anonymous sex, Wrecked smashes cinematic taboos while it spins its cautionary tale. Ryan is an earnest 18-year-old trying to develop a career as an actor and getting his life on the right track. This course is quickly threatened with the sudden arrival of his sort-of ex, Daniel, who arrives at Ryan s door wanting a place to stay and offering the promise of a normal, loving relationship. But Daniel s drug addiction and attitude towards casual sex derail any hope for normalcy and soon ensnares Ryan in his own downward spiral. Handheld cameras, a hot young cast and a boldly upfront approach to sex combine to make Wrecked a unique film experience.

Special Features:

  • Director's Commentary
  • Deleted Scenes

Review

"A provocative and hypnotic film that, like Shortbus, dares to take risks and cross lines." --Newyorkcool.com

Customer Reviews

The film was like a bad porn movie.

Wrecked is conceived by a young man and it shows in the way the situations are handled.
David A. Mills
The other actors are very bad also.

"Wreaked" shows aspiring actor Ryan (Theo Montgomery) allowing his career and life to be sabotaged by the torch he carries for a druggie ex-boyfriend, Daniel, who ran out of his life at least once before.

Ryan lands his first role with a acting group and celebrates by getting off on a web-clip by hustler Taylor (name from the commentary). Shortly thereafter Ryan comes home and finds the ex-Daniel waiting on the veranda. Happy Ryan is willing to take Daniel back if he gets a job and stops taking drugs. Daniel charms and agrees, stifling any further conversation with kisses and more. Ryan's life starts sliding downhill, and his job performance suffers. Taylor the hustler turns out to be a pal of Daniel's too, leading to an explicit three-way. To make the point clear, there is a photography student, who gets roped into first Daniel's and then Ryan's game. Ryan's life drifts out of control. He knows what to do but just loses the will to do it.

The DVD comes with a commentary by the two directors and Theo Montgomery, a deleted scene, an extended mixture of scenes, a photo gallery, and some TLA trailers.

The film gives a serious, focused depiction of the problems of unsuitable partners and of drugs and also gives a reasonably realistic and frequent display of bodies engaged in sex and in the incidentals of daily life. The actors are very good looking; Theo Montgomery as Ryan is spectacularly cute looking and did a good job as the makeup person (source: the commentary) on the set.

The production has multiple weaknesses. The sets generally shriek cheap, not always unsuitably. For example, the one window in Ryan's house is covered with a sheet. The sound ranges from clear to faint. The film stock is fairly grainy.

The movie is a sort of grindhouse softcore porn. It is definitely an exploitation film, that only barely poses as anything else. Sort of like a prostitute wearing a school uniform. The main character, who apparently used to be a junky under the influence of his ex boyfriend, is attempting to get his life back together. He does this, not by going back to school or by getting a more down to earth job, but instead by trying out for a play and having his pictures taken by his asian friend. It is hard to believe that the play is really run by professionals, they look like they were picked up off the street and are auditioning for their play not on a set, but instead in what looks to be the basement of some local community center. It is also far too obvious that the only reason the directer is interested in the main character is not because of his acting potential, but instead for the potential in pants. Mean while the main character pursues a modeling career (i suppose) by having long discussions with a 20 something weird asian guy with a camera. His dreams of modeling fall through when he comes home to catch the asian guy taking weird pictures of his boyfriend cooking naked. Oh yeah, his boyfriend comes back, and provides what looks to be some desperately needed sexual activity after months of the main character being forced to troll around on the internet searching for web cam hookups. Needless to say the next morning, the main character quickly invites his ex boyfriend to stay with him despite the fact his ex bf blatantly says that he will not be getting a job or paying any rent. Then right after he leaves for the day, the ex bf proceeds to ran sacks his house for drugs and invites tricks over for sex.Read more ›

I saw this movie at the Philadelphia QFest2009 (formerly the Philadelphia Gay and Lesbian Film Festival) and was incredibly intrigued by the synopsis and build-up surrounding the film. While the first fifteen minutes of the film were mediocre at best, the rest of the film was literally... torture. Bordering on bad pornographic material (unattractive actors and poor plot included!), this film had no substance, no plot, no backstory, ultimately, nothing at all.

My only memorable moment at the end of the film when there was a simultaneous gasp of relief and... silence. Not one person in a sold-out crowd clapped and the general feeling of disgust was shared amongst the theatergoers.

As a cultural studies specialist, this film is an insult to vast spectrum of Queer Texts. I was hoping that the film would be dropped given the general discontent with the film - but a word of warning to anyone even considering purchasing this: It is a waste of money that could be spent on other films like, "Shelter", "Holding Trevor", or "Heights", and it will be time wasted that you will never get back....

Absolutely nothing positive to say... you've been warned.

There is nothing to recommend in this badly acted and extremely tedious film. BORING BOREING BORING. Don't try loking for an intelligent script as there isn't one.

"Wrecked" is a story about an ill-fated relationship that takes place in a somewhat decadent background. Shumanski's film, however, cannot be fully understood if one forgets Jacques Lacan's notion of jouissance.

Jouissance can be translated as joy. And according to Lacanian theory, joy is not the same as pleasure. Pleasure is a discharge of tension while joy is the building up of a tension. Joy is also the painful pleasure; joy presupposes an eventual and belated pleasure, but quite often it remains as joy and thus blockades the real possibility of pleasure.

Ryan is a young boy struggling to become a theater actor. Daniel is Ryan's ex-boyfriend who one day shows up in his apartment and reinserts himself into Ryan's life. It's made clear for the viewers that this relationship will end up badly. Unbeknownst to the viewer, though, is how badly it could actually end.

Narrative strategy relies upon addiction and its effects on people. One could say that Ryan becomes too dependent on Daniel's presence. But what is undoubtedly a fact is that Daniel is a drug addict that will eventually bring down Ryan.

In the past drug addiction was seen as perfidious attack on morality and the parental authority. It wasn't long before drug addiction was considered a disease, and as a disease it had to be treated in a most clinical way (rehabilitation clinics, pills, etc.). Lacan, however, adds an extra layer by defining drug addiction as yet another manifestation of the jouissance. One of the typical characteristics of joy is that the individual is rarely aware of it, most of the time the individual is trapped in some sort of vicious circle of joy.
