This is NOT really a gay movie, but there is some minor reform-school homoeroticism that we feel might appeal to our customers. Bullet Collector's young (and frequently shirtless, for all you chickenhawks) protagonist ends up in juvie and has to fight to keep from becomming the resident bully's new "bitch."

A stunning, intense tale of a youth lost in an uncaring world, Bullet Collector is the first film from promising director Alexander Vartanov . A visual, moody masterpiece, the drama follows the traumas of a wide-eyed 14-year-old boy. He has a terrible home life with a step-father who can barely stand the sight of him. His school life is even worse as bullies torment and attack him with shocking regularity And his life becomes even more torturous after he is sent to hellish reform school. Prone to day-dreaming about a life where he is loved, fights off his attackers and has a beautiful girlfriend, the reality of an entirely different and terrible life continually shocks him back to reality. Is he just a timid kid destined for abuse or will he gain the strength to fight off his attackers? Recalling the world of Antoine Doinel in François Truffaut 's The 400 Blows , this unsettling, visually brilliant drama updates that classic by giving it a nightmarishly Russian spin.

Reasons to Buy

  1. Haunting black-and-white cinematography.
  2. A beautiful homage to The 400 Blows .
  3. Alexander Vartanov demonstrates the skill of an old master in his feature directorial debut.
