Watch Laughing to the Bank - Alternative Versions.
The moment the producer of this film introduced this film is a full
length feature version of the short 'Postmortem', I was super excited
because I had no idea. That had been one of my most favorite shorts and
for some reason had stuck with me. I was super excited to watch a
feature version and when I saw that 2 of the principal characters were
retained from the short, it was all the more better, The actors just
suited the part so well in the short that I would have hated to see
someone else play those parts. I would strongly recommend the short
also to people to watch it.
Jonathan and Raul are a very happy couple of few years. They
practically live together though Jonathan still has his apartment. Raul
is married to Jonathan's best friend so that once the immigration goes
through, they can have Raul stay in the country so that they both can
live happily. Enter Troy from Spain who is planning to move back to LA.
Troy and Jonathan were ex-lovers and apparently Troy broke Jonathan's
heart and left for SPain. It took a long time for Jonathan to get over
him. Troy is trouble and naughty. We can see that all he wants is
Jonathan back. Jonathan is also not completely over Troy and they have
a sexual tension between them. They meet for coffee after Troy comes
back but something takes Jonathan back to Troy's house and after
initial reluctance on their second meeting, they end up sleeping. Raul
suspects something but doesn't say much. He expects a mature man like
Jonathan should know what he is doing. This goes on for a while.
Jonathan doesn't really know whom he really wants, Troy trying to get
back to Jonathan and Raul's dilemma when he knows and pretends to
ignore what is going on. Finally on Jonathan's 30th birthday, Raul
encourages the 3 of them to get in a 3way because they are drunk and
stoned but Raul knows exactly what he is doing. He wants to see the
extent of their passion. This incident outs some sense in Troy's head.
He decides to move back to Spain leaving the 2 men to deal with each
other on their own.
The director and editor of the film have very excellently used time
jumps and creatively edited the film. The scenes going between past and
future add a different feel to the film. We have all seen many love
triangle gay movies but this one is handled very differently. Raul's
character is the most complicated because he is going through various
emotions to decide what o do with jonathan, try to make him understand.
He had to speak a lot with his eyes and I must say he did an excellent
job. Jonathan and Troy acted very very well too. here is something
about Jonathan that makes him very charismatic, at least for me. The
film shows how at various points in our life we always keep looking for
true love, have to make some very tough decisions to get through the
phases in our life and how compassion and passion can make us stop
looking at things in a more logical way. Special mention to the
background music. It was mostly middle eastern which for some reason
fitted so well with the theme and the mood of the film. It was
excellent. I wish I could get my hands on the music of the film. I
really really loved this film. It is hard to describe in words but the
way some of Jonathan's actions are showed are interesting because he
thinks what he is doing is OK but from Raul's point of view, he is
trying to show that he still has a thing for Troy and as we all know
that Troy is trouble.
I strongly recommend this film. An excellent example of how direction
and editing can do wonders to a film. I so wish our US based directors
who make all kinds of bad film in the name of gay cinema can learn
something from this.
