“Blood” 2004

Directed by: Jerry Ciccoritti

Screenplay: Screenplay adaptation by Jerry Ciccoritti
Producer: Anna Gerb, Joel Awerbuck

After not having seen each other in five years, Chris Terry goes to visit his younger sister Noelle Terry in Montréal. Their lives, both together and apart, have been turbulent ones with something toxic having affected the way they interact with each other. Chris, who has just divorced his wife Denise, is a recovering alcoholic. Although he has never served time, he has committed crimes in his past. Noelle, a drug addict, turns tricks to make ends meet. She has just completed a stint in prison. Upon Chris’ arrival, Noelle proposes to Chris that they enter into a three-way with a john who will pay $500 for the trick. Noelle had been trying to find another man to do the job, but was unable to find one on such short notice. Noelle implies that she needs the money to pay off a third party, and she figures Chris owes her. Despite not identifying himself as being gay or even bisexual despite having previously had a relationship with a man.

They explore, in detail, their feelings for each other, and finally admit something neither thought they would ever be able to admit about themselves – that they are in love with each other, and always have been.

“Everyone thinks that you’re such a good boy and I’m so bad, but I know the real you, Chris, and you’re every bit as bad as your sister”.

Canada is known for its weird and sexy cinema, and this one definitely delivers.  Only two actors in the entire film, not even any extras but they really carried it! It felt like a play, which worked for it, but also at times I felt held it back. Even the set looked like it was a theater piece. A bit more immersion into cinema and it could have been more haunting.
