CGiii Comment

Production values are sky-high...

The singing talent is off the scale...

Directorially...too many film-school stumbles. In more experienced hands, this would/could have been a magnificence. But, as a debut, it remains impressive...with so many producers, it seems fair to conclude that none of them knew what they were doing.

As for the styling - the photo-shoot - the stylist should never work again. Hopelessly dated.

Still, despite the harshness, it is a fine and grizzily piece of work - that could easily be developed further.

Let this be a warning to all Grindr users. Be careful. Be safe.
