WATCH: Best American Queer Film of 2013: “Pit Stop”

On its premiere at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, Yen Tan‘s aching rural gay love story Pit Stop was hailed by Film.com as “the best American queer film of the year.” This working class tale of closeted contractor Gabe (Bill Heck) and openly gay Hispanic forklift driver Ernesto (Marcus DeAnda) is a slowly simmering drama of two Texans finding love amidst a landscape of loneliness.

Out today on digital (and coming to DVD February 4th), Pit Stop is this week’s WolfeOnDemand.com Movie of the Week. Watch the trailer above and then rent or download it directly from WolfeOnDemand.com and other fine digital platforms now.

      Queer films won’t get us anywhere. We need to be in mainstream films.

      “Queer films” is where you go when nobody in the mainstream wants you.

      I got a chance to see Bill Heck, the blonde lead actor in Pit Stop, when he was in Angels in America a few years ago at Roundabout Theater. He played Joe (a character with some similarities to the one he plays in Pit Stop, now that I think of it) and he was excellent. I actually saw him twice because I saw both Millenium Approaches AND Perestroika (in which Bill had a full-nude scene which was particularly enjoyable). He’s a good actor and creates realistic intimate gay roles. I’m a fan.

      I fully support anyone who puts out a gay themed film. BUT, no matter the film, I give it 30 minutes to draw me in. If it doesn’t draw me in, I walk out. I rented Pit Stop on my kindle this afternoon, I gave it 40 minutes, and the film went absolutely nowhere. At the 30 minute mark I was wondering what the hell I was even watching, horrible character development, no plot that I could discern, and I almost fell asleep. My personal opinion is that you shouldn’t spend your hard earned money on this one.

      Pit Stop is one of those rare films where the ending is so great that it overcomes the weaknesses of the rest of the film.

      @Aires the Ram: I watched the film as a member of a film-festival programming committee, and had the same reaction, but stuck with it anyway because of what other committee members said. IMO, it was worth the effort. The apparent weaknesses of the earlier parts of the film contribute to the power of the great ending. IMO.
