With gay rights being in the news so much, it kind of behooves the rest of us to think about it a little, don’t you think? After all, it’s not about who you sleep with as much as it’s about love and being together…no matter your gender. So, with that in mind, it’s also probably a good thing to check out ‘gay-themed’ movies. I’ve always had a ‘live and let live’ attitude, but I’ve known a lot of people who don’t share that point of view…those people could do with checking out the new movie from Eric Casaccio called Narcissist.
Narcissist is a pretty straight forward love story. It’s a story we’ve all lived through. Evan is a pretty nice guy who meets Rob and soon the two are a couple. The problem is that, initially Rob is a pretty nice guy too, but soon turns manipulative. It doesn’t take long for Evan to figure out that Rob is bad news and more interested in himself than anyone else! And, let’s be honest, we’ve all been in a relationship like that, no matter what your gender or preference!!!
Narcissist sends that message that it doesn’t matter who you love, it doesn’t matter who you’re attracted to, it only matters that we treat each other with love and respect and, only then, will we all get along. I know it sounds a bit grandiose for a short love story, but it’s a message that Mr. Casaccio sent with his last movie, Freak, and drives the point further home with Narcissist. But, don’t think this is a preachy movie; the message is simply subtext to an interesting story of a love gone wrong!
I’m giving Narcissist 4 out of 4 cigars, it’s well written, the acting is great and the message is one that is relevant and timely. You can check it out for yourself by heading over to http://www.narcissistthemovie.com.
