When semi-closeted insurance adjuster Michael Dalmar lands a case in Philadelphia, he reaches out to his estranged twin brother Kyle, a successful — but abusive — photographer in the City of Brotherly Love. When Michael finds Kyle missing and is mistaken for being the swinging photographer himself, he decides to use his brother’s identity to work the Philly art scene for clues. With the help of lesbian repo girl-turned-P.I. Abigail Marks, Michael discovers a long line of jilted male models who could have had it in for Kyle. Danger and drama lurk around every corner, but Michael soon learns to loosen up and enjoy the pleasures of his much naughtier brother’s life.
Playing like an episode of “Silk Stalkings” if it were directed by Robert Mapplethorpe, 2 Minutes Later is a hardboiled, queer romp that flaunts a tantalizing mixture of thrills, camp and humor. Director Robert Gaston brings a playful rawness to his vision of the hard-charging art scene. With wry references to classic thrillers such as Blow Up and Rear Window, Gaston takes a playful tear through Kyle’s hard-boiled world, where hot boys angle for a big break, girls lock lips in the gallery bathroom, and a killer will stop at nothing to get his hands on some very incriminating photos.
A struggling crystal meth addict is summoned to his childhood home to face his estranged father in the engaging short film Night Falls Fast. — AARON LAZENBY
