OPENCAM (Robert Gaston, U.S.). 101 minutes. Friday (May 19), 11:45 pm. ROM. Rating: NN Rating: NN
When a hunky aspiring artist and occasional rentboy named Manny ( Andreau Thomas ) starts finding his Internet sex buddies are getting murdered while on webcam, a closeted detective ( Amir Darvish ) gladly watches his back.
Writer/director Robert Gaston seems to want this so-called erotic thriller to say something about loneliness and alienation in the urban gay community (it's set in DC). But those themes are lost amidst the wooden acting, laughable dialogue and a who-dunnit element that's more howcanyounotknowit?
Add a cheesy soundtrack and a couple of cum shots and this would be porn. The extra N is for Darvish's sneering, nasty performance as the cop.
