North Of Vortex (1991)

A Film by Constantines Giannaris

A gay poet heads west from New York City in his convertible. He picks up a muscular sailor who's bisexual; then Jackie, a waitress at a diner, joins them. Jackie is attracted to the poet who rebuffs her romantic gestures; rejection fuels her continued interest in him. The sailor and the poet are bonded by sex, but the sailor's frank advances to Jackie make him uninteresting to her. The sailor can get violent, the poet is passive, Jackie is glamorous and detached. The landscape changes, they stop in cities and in the desert. They reach a lake. Who will be left out of a final pairing?

Ένας γκέι ποιητής αφήνει την Νέα Υόρκη και με το ανοιχτό του αμάξι κατευθύνεται δυτικά. Στον δρόμο, θα πάρει μαζί έναν μπαϊσέξουαλ ναυτικό και μια σερβιτόρα, την Τζάκι. Η κοπέλα ελκύεται από τον ποιητή, που όμως αγνοεί τα σήματα της. Ο ναύτης κι ο ποιητής κάνουν έρωτα. Όμως, η Τζάκι δεν έχει εγκαταλείψει την μάχη κι όλα θα ξεκαθαριστούν στις όχθες μιας λίμνης.
