Product Overview

This micro-budgeted, gay-themed indie film from 1988 covers an important week in the life of Buddy Fields (Michael Waite), a sexually curious young man who abandons his rural, upstate community in favor of bustling New York City, where he finds friends and lovers alike. Director Roger Stigliano's minimalist approach to storytelling includes long takes, fixed camera angles, and single-source lighting. The film has no dramatic arc whatsoever; it's a loosely connected series of seemingly random scenes. But Waite's Buddy is a sweet, gentle, ingratiating character whose big-city experiences will prove enjoyable to gay audiences.

Reviews
ReviewSource Los Angeles Times
Review There definitely are awkwardnesses in "Fun Down There," but [Roger Stigliano] is a filmmaker with a vision, a man who is as observant of New York' off-the-beaten-path charms as he is of its people, whom he tends to view from a discreet, compassionate middle distance. There's real subtlety in [Michael Waite]'s understated portrayal of the reflective [Buddy], and depth in the two young men he attracts, [Nickolas Nagurney]'s photographer and Martin Goldin's waiter, who is also a college student. There are some brief glimpses of explicit sex but they are natural in effect rather than exploitative; you do, however, regret the filmmakers' choice of title, which lends itself to crude double entendre completely at odds with the film's tender tone. P.S.: Sit out the credits and you'll be rewarded with a hilarious parting shot.

PopcornQ Review ...a fresh, comic, coming-of-age drama...the use of real time and dead-pan humor give Fun Down There much of its charm.
