I once shared a statistic with fellow LOAers Snickerdoodles and J.Seams (both totally Black) that between 99 and 100 percent of Black men "get on the down low". They disagreed with me, and dismissed it. Finally, after months of research, I've found the evidence that proves that statistic beyond a reasonable doubt. AND it's also quite common for Down Low Brothers to also be Down Low Murderers, which I was not aware of. But I guess it makes sense. This short film titled, "Hidden Prodigy", captures what Ang Lee must have been striving for with "Brokeback". I think Ang could really learn something about editing from this piece, and Jake and Heath (RIP) would have benefitted the movie a touch more, had they been able to better convey the homoerotic tension displayed here. Dialogue is top notch, Enjoy!
