“Closet Monster” or “Learning to Be Gay With Buffy”- my fuckin review

Here is my review for “Closet Monster“. The films start off with this boy named Oscar watching another boy getting brutally attacked for being gay. Eventually his parents separate and that adds to his nightmares of being homosexual and alone. He is a talented photographer and has dreams of getting out of his town and also talks to his pet hamster Buffy. She talks back to him too. Which is amazing. He makes wooden stakes too. He meets a boy at work and begins to have feelings for him and has to come to terms with those feelings and being gay, growing up and dealing with his parents. Shit is hard!

Okay so this movie is great because it’s not forced and cheesy. Sometimes gay themed films can seem “not real” or poorly written or even having sex scenes just for the sake of having sex scenes. This films isn’t that way. Everything feels real and part of the film/story. Even the crazy shit in his head seems interesting and real (talking hamsters etc). You feel for all the characters and the pay off between the boys is even honest. Connor Jessup has been taking on cool roles and I hope he continues that shit. So if you love coming of age stories that are real and interesting where the director loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer then this is the movie for you. Warning there are no vampires in this movie. He just loved the TV show etc. I loved Buffy and this movie.
