I Want Your Love review

Funded by a gay porn studio. Banned from screening at the Sydney Mardi Gras Film Festival. Passionately defended by James Franco.

Director Travis Mathews’ controversial feature debut recalls the likes of Shortbus and 9 Songs with its divisively explicit sex scenes.

Following a group of San Francisco gay guys, including daydreamer Jesse (Jesse Metzger), IWYL is porn with a pumping heart.

Like porn, it’s structured around shagging. Unlike porn, Mathews’ film boasts a seductively emotional core.

Graphic, gritty and uncompromising, it explores love through the act of sex – an admirable experiment.
