In rural Pine Apple, Mississippi, Griffith (Dan Montgomery) lives in a stagnant environment of repressed emotions and dark family secrets in Tag Purvis' debut film Red Dirt . Raised by his Aunt Summer (Karen Black), he finds that he is now caring for her. Aunt Summer is trapped in her home by agoraphobia, and in her mind by secrets that constantly haunt her. He sets a course of change and decides to rent out a cottage on the property and make a break with his cousin and sometime lover Emily (Aleksa Palladino). Enter Lee (Walton Goggins), a stranger passing through on his way to bigger and better things. He rents the cottage, bringing with him an infectious passion for life and he ignites a dormant spark of homoerotic energy in Griffith.

In-House Review - Jul 11 2012
Set in the small Mississippi town of Pine Apple, where the Spanish moss hangs off the live oak trees, it's eerily quiet and the secrets tend to fester in the corner and in the dark. Griffith (Dan Montgomery) lives with his aunt Summer (cult star Kare... Read More

I have this film from its original pressing a decade ago and it remains in my Top 10 for gay-themed features. Considering the many quickie gay features that are shoddily made these days, to watch a film with truly inspired and lush cinematography, a... Read More

"Red Dirt" is an enigmatic film dealing with two major themes-agoraphobia and claustrophobia. As the film deals with the difficulty and pain of expressing love and the changes that love takes, we are wit... Read More

While an ending's being happy is not a requirement in any good film, it is certainly important that it be comprehensible. And in the case of this film, that ending is completely incompre... Read More

If you're looking for gay porn, don't buy this movie, if you're looking for a great movie about a love affair between two guys, with great production values, excellent scenery, great acting (bravo to Karen Black!), then buy this movie. I love movies... Read More

If you want great cinematography and a dreamlike film with long discussions about vegetables, then this is the film for you. If you want the least bit of a gay story, then I advise you look elsewhere. Like another reviewer, I didn't see the run in th... Read More

I thought this film was amazingly boring and filled with stilted and cliched dialogue. There was that one hot kiss, which made me raise this from 1 to 1.5 stars--but the film seemed utterly pointless.

It's great to see that some people realize that gay life isn't bound by borders of big cities like New York City or Los Angeles.

Mississippian Tag Purvis comes home (back to Meridian, Mississippi to be exact)to film this wonderful film.Read More

I must say this is one of the Best Movies I have seen in recent years. If your into that southern black and white drama like the ones Betti Davis preformed in. Karen Black has outdone Davis in this one. Just think of it as a Sweet Charlot with a Gay ... Read More

I don't know who reviews the videos/dvd's for tla but, I didn't find it as "homoerotic" or "evocative" as the reviewer. I also didn't see the "run through the rain naked" scene that was supposedly in the film. There is one brief butt shot and one par... Read More

First off let me say I am a fan of Dan Montgomery from his work in Wasteland. To me a highly underrated series. So I was looking forward to this film a lot. It has that slow gloomy feel to it like Jason Patric's After Dark My Sweet film--and belie... Read More
