You love me, right? More than that shirt?


The theme of love beyond friendship is daunting, but consistent. Luster, a low-budget dramedy, ironically has no budget when it comes to nudity and voyeurism. The story takes place in the 90s and follows the happenings of Jackson, a gay poet, who's only himself when sporting blue hair. Working at his friend's L.A. record store, he soon becomes the four-letter word victim of creeper status Jeff.  As soon as Jeff confesses, Jackson confronts him by expressing how his normalcy is boring. Eventually, a twist of events leaves one man dead, another one paralyzed, and another one heart-fixed. The final scene brings a tragic end from a friend's final confession, "I am never going to be the way I want, to be with you."
  The film is a 21st century flop, but minus the birthday suits, the clothes effortlessly characterize the actors who are like two sides of the same coin.
