This movie is simply stunning, and will haunt you long after you see it. Its over three hours long, and is almost entirely in black and white with little dialogue, and 90% percent of the time, the actors are nude. It is basically a movie with three acts. The first act is the two main lovers meet each other, which can only be described as one of the most original love scenes I have ever seen. Then after they separate, one of the two spends the second act of the movie looking for the other. He will go to any length to find him. He goes to seedy back alleys where others are engaging in hard core sex, and the director holds nothing back in these scenes, movie theaters, parks, whatever necessary. And the last act, is them finding each other, but it's in a way, that will blow you away. Different people will view this movie in different ways, but the movie is clear on one thing, and that love is all that matters. With Hollywood so caught up in special effects, animation, and toilet humor movies, it is so refreshing to find a movie that does none of this, but creates a movie for the ages. Simply put the movie in your player, and sit back and enjoy.

There are many difficulties with this film, so many that a great many people won't like it. Leaving aside the gay aspect, which will keep many people away (their loss), there is the length. Three hours. It will not accommodate your desire for linear exposition. It is neither cute nor campy. There are no bangs. You must either submit yourself to its time frame or just watch something else. You must also watch more with your right brain than your left. You will not get a quick fix. You must hold every scene in your consciousness without expecting it to make sense immediately, but rather let succeeding scenes - like pixels - build up the overall image. Along the way you will be treated to some beautiful imagery, much of it chiaroscuro. If you can manage all this, you might at least appreciate what the director attempts. Whether you will think he succeeds is another matter. Some artistic efforts are worth experiencing even if, in the long run, you don't particularly like or agree with the result. Being broadened has some value. However, since this is not what would normally be termed "entertainment", you might be advised to rent before you buy.

Personally this was good experience for me. And a moving one. But it does demand some work on the viewer's part. A "work of art" isn't merely work for the artist alone.

Raging Sun, Raging Sky is simply one of the best gay films I ever saw. It is also the work of one of the best directors of our times. His other movie I saw (can't remember the name) very simple, almost stark, about a youth wandering alone in a mexican city, looking but not finding a lost love, it is almost the opposite. This one is much more difficult, symbolic, baroque, almost out of fashion, in a Cocteau kind of way, a danger in our times. But he succeeds in a splendid and beautiful manner. Finally, this film and the other, so different in style, are so very similar in thematic and its vision of love, that they could only be made by the same guy. Oh, and I was almost forgetting. The film is so good not because it is gay, but in spite of it, almost all gay cinema is such a mess! Great movie, great director, great love story.

I would love to say this is the worst movie ever made, but since I haven't seen them all I can only say it was the worst I ever saw. It went straight from the DVD player into the garbage. Obviously meant to be some kind of art film, It's 3 hours of several unrelated characters stumbling through surrealistic environments suffering from schizophrenic self talk. Random mostly gay sex hookups going on all over the place, but they are very softcore and you can't see anything anyway because the old B&W film quality is so poor. Personally, I believe this film would have disappeared into obscurity long ago if it weren't for suckers like me who will buy anything if someone says there are naked guys in it. If you buy this movie you will definitely regret it.

If you are looking for a movie that is clear and moving....this is not it. I love art type films as much as the next guy BUT this is not art or an ode to love and sex as the cover states. This is the directors attempt to be surreal and cerebral and neither works as far as I am concerned. This is 3 hours and 12 minutes of dreck. Most of the time this movie is in black and white...that is fine, I love black and white and them I assume the surreal parts come in color. There is no dialog which makes it more confusing. the best word for this is .....Confused. The 3 main characters, the men are all very attractive, no doubt about that but I know I am not an idiot but I was bored and lost.

I started viewing this film with no particular preconceptions, but I got restive after the first hour, then another hour went by, then I thought the film had finished but then it got a second wind, became suspiciously metaphysical, and finally ended after 3 hours and 12 minutes. I was exhausted and in a torpor - what was the point of all this Castaneda inspired nonsense? It occurred to me that the film should have been divided into two - the banal first part, which runs nearly 2 hours, and then the metaphysical second part, which could be a sequel running 70 minutes or so, and containing some extraordinary geological features and special effects, easily the most interesting components of this curious film.
