Gay adult film stars, Remy Mars and Antonio Biaggi, become actors with their clothes on in this upcoming feature film, Chasing Pavement. Written and directed by newcomer Matthew Doyle, the film delves into the complicated personal life of an adult entertainer looking for a way out.
Although the film looks very well-produced, the dialogue and acting itself appears very lifeless and stilted.
Also, I’ll play the role of Meek Mill here and call out writer/director Matthew Doyle for using Lamont Pierre (creator of Freefall) as his ghostwriter and ghost director. If Pierre didn’t actually have anything to do with this film, his influence on Doyle is definitely clear as day. Maybe they both subscribe to the same indie arthouse Netflix film queue.
Official Synopsis via Facebook:
Chasing Pavement stars Remy Mars as Elijah Young, an ‘urban’ porn star who is preparing to leave the adult entertainment industry and start a new career as a chef. His new roommate, Takeshi, played by Tokio Sasaki, is a Japanese immigrant who is looking for a new start in the information technology field. Takeshi, who feels completely invisible in the United States, becomes obsessed with his extremely visible flatmate. Takeshi’s obsession culminates in a violation of boundaries that brings the two together for a moment of intimacy that neither will soon forget. The movie also stars Antonio Biaggi as Bryson Colon, a man with a troubled past who frequently hires Elijah as an escort, but wants much more.
