"The Lost Interview" with Director and Cast
Halloween Night in San Francisco's famous Castro is a time for celebration and revelry. And that is exactly what three young friends are in search of but may not necessarily find in writer-director Gabriel Fleming's rendered story of reunion, desire and regret.
Jasper, Mark and Lily were great high school mates. Now in their early twenties, they reunite on Halloween for a night of sex, drugs, and good times. But simmering under the surface are pangs of what could have been - for the handsome, gay Mark and his roommate Lily, who were once romantically involved; and Mark and his straight and recently engaged pal Jasper, both of whom still long for each other after a short lived, teenage affair and who have yet to find closure.
Rich in emotion, The Lost Coast tells a breathtaking and poetic tale of friendship and isolation that resonates long after the final shot.

In his words to Wendy he's very adamant that his past behavior means nothing now (even tho we viewers are witnesses, during this second visit to the Lost Coast, as Jasper both kisses and masturbates Mark). And while to us actions are stronger than words, perhaps it's his cleaning his cum-covered hand with area sand which throws Mark into an emotional downspin. So, here we are at film's end, seeing group members go their way, and we're left with a tearful Jasper wondering what the hell his orientation really is. BUT at the same time we do get to listen in as he finishes up his "forgive me---it meant nothing" email to an innocently unknowing Wendy. Wait....wait, there's more. Thanks to our director in his film's very last frame, who should we see smiling up at us while comfortably reading on a couch, but that sweet looking young woman, herself.....completely unaware that life is about to be ruined by a man who cannot admit what he wants and who he really is.
Directed and written by Gabriel Fleming.
Jasper (Ian Scott McGregor) sends Wendy (Sarah Nealis) a Yahoo email to tell her about what happened last night, but first he decides to confide to her what also happened in high school. This is tough for Jasper to write about.
The story begins with Jasper going to Mark's place to meet up with him and Lily. He has known Mark (Lucas Alifano) and Lily (Lindsay Benner) since high school. The story also takes us back to the time they went to the Lost Coast in Northern California.
Jasper didn't have time for a costume. Mark is wearing an overcoat with only underwear and a plastic member straight out of it underneath. Lily has ghostly makeup on her face, dyed black hair and a face mask to wear on the back on her head. They all go out to Castro for Halloween. It becomes a strange night and for old feelings.
Also in the cast: Chris Yule, Rob Hatzenbeller, Steve Potts, Bradley Mena.
Lucas Alifano film debut.
Filmed in Golden Gate Park and San Francisco, California.
Very nice cinematography and sound. Good soundtrack. Original score by Nathan Matthew David.
Features: Director and cast Commentary. Deleted Scenes Commentary. "The Lost Interview" with Director and Cast.
I wish their was more dramatic story to this film, especially between Jasper and Mark. I kept saying to myself, if we could just get Lily and Caleb out of the picture....maybe...just maybe. This is not an ending that gay audiences will enjoy. But this film does have some breath-taking nature scenes and nice music.
