So what if we’ve never written about Travis Matthews‘ short film I Want Your Love? That doesn’t change the fact that it features some of the hottest onscreen sex of the year. To put it quite simply, this isn’t your standard smile and look at the camera porno. Hell, it’s not even technically porn! The project focuses on two best friends who “playfully negotiate their way toward having sex together for the first time”.
Within the past year, Matthews has gained a reputation for his voyeuristic, artistic and downright beautiful style. He’s even been praised by director John Cameron Mitchell as “a filmmaker of refreshing honesty… a new voice giving queer cinema a much needed injection of emotional intimacy.” Um, that’s coming from the man who wrote, directed and starred in Hedwig and The Angry Inch!
Long story short, I Want Your Love is in the running for TLA‘s 2010 Short Film Contest. And we really think it should win. Sure, we didn’t have the patience to watch every clip in the running, but could they really be better than this? If you’re loving this as much as we are, be sure to head over here and vote now!
