Chucho E. Quintero is a queer writer/director born and raised in Mexico. For my money, along with Julián Hernández, Chucho is the most important cin once told me that Non-Love-Song was his favorite short film of all time… until he saw David. (David is my favorite short film, as well.)
I’ll let Chucho tell you all about what he thinks of today’s free gay movie on Vimeo. (If you don’t follow Chucho on Letterboxd, you should. He’s always enthusiastic and informed and he writes better and more lively prose than 80% of the native English speakers on that frequently tiring and predictable platform.)
I don’t like Non-Love-Song as much as Chucho does, but it is one of the better and more sensitively directed narratives that depict the friendship between a gay man and a straight man.
What do you think?
