WATCH: Caught In The Act In Jane Pickett’s “The Men’s Room”

Are you gonna be in Atlanta on March 25? If so, make it your business to attend the Atlanta Film Festival for the world debut of “The Men’s Room,” featured in the trailer above. Directed by Jane Pickett and starring Russell Sams and Blake Robbins, it’s an emotionally charged short touching on intimacy, public sex and male sexuality.

From the press release:

When Thomas ventures into a park for a sexual encounter with a stranger, he uncovers a striking complexity composed of desire, fear, and betrayal when his would-be anonymous sex partner turns out to be a cop.

The Men’s Room screens Sunday, March 25th at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema at 4pm

    Yeah, I think I’ll pass on this one……

  • Michael in Toronto

    Intriguing, to say the least…

  • brian

    This looks really great! Bring it to New York!

  • scrumfan

    Great…another film that perpetuates tired old stereotypes about gays. Can we please move on?

  • Ted B. (Charging Rhino)

    The young lead’s cute, but the premise is old and tired.

    Can’t we have new tales of self-discovery and coming-out, rather than retreading the same old tropes over and over again.

    In the age of the internet and smart phone apps, what moron under 90 trolls parks. There is willing suspension of disbelief and then there is idiocy in premise. This is the latter.

  • Joseph

    Gotta agree with the other nay-sayers here. This might be daring and original if it were 1972, not 2012.

  • monroeplace

    Didn’t care for it at all.

  • Matthew

    Interesting shots, and I appreciate that there was no music. That one scene where he was opening the door was evocative of a horror film. As for the plot, I suspect there aren’t really that many dramas using the glory how as a narrative device, so I don’t know how tired or unoriginal it will be. Definitely worth checking out!
