Head On


A gay movie set amongst the Greek community in Australia. We follow our hero through a 24 hour period (more or less) and see what his lifestyle and pressures are like. He is unemployed and spends his time permanently smoking dagga, in between snorting cocaine, hanging with friends, going to discos, and engaging in frequent (very frequent) oral homosexual sex with friends and total strangers. In between, he abandons his responsibility to look after his younger sister. The film does attempt to examine the racism prevalent between different communities in Oz.
We regret the lack of overseas commentary.

104 minutes.
