    The fragile romance between two men is threatened by addiction, obsession and desire in this short film directed by Drew Stephens. The film, adapted from a stage play, stars César Cadabes, Melvign Badiola, Vicky Nguyen.

    Synopsis:

    “Viewer Discretion Advised (Tape 96)” offers a peek into a crumbling romantic relationship between two Filipino-American men, as their date night goes wrong. The real-time dialog intensifies as they confront issues of obsession, grief, marriage equality and the legacy of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.” Ultimately, the film conveys the personal pain endured when society at large does not provide equal support to all loving couples.

    The acting seems very robotic and artificial. Also it seems like around the 7 min mark dudes in the scrubs looks like he is trying his best not to laugh during the scene. IDK
    :yeshrug:
    Nonetheless the message is still deeply meaningful.

    I enjoyed it. The story threw me for a loop. Which, I am sure was part of the intent of the film. It was good to see a all Philippines cast, especially a gay film. The storyline is unique and the acting was decent. I would have to agree their was some exaggeration on both actors. I thought the cinematography was good. Overall, I give it a B-.

    I think silence would have been better than the background music played during the second half.

    So the music around the argument was UNNECESSARY. I was definitely thrown off when they were talking about his problem and then they showed the problem. I was not expecting that at all. Great story and the acting was cool I'd give it a B/B-

    The acting was a little off but overall I like the plot and story line. Compared the other gay web series and stuff its actually refreshing to see something different.

    Liked the overall story and it's varied touch points.
    Wasn't overly impressed by the 2 male leads stunted delivery of the dialogue, the newscaster was a little bit more natural, however I did appreciate his silent emotive ability at the end.

    I give it 3½ stripes out of 7 of the rainbow flag rating system.

    I liked that this short film and a twist to it because at first I thought dude had a porn addiction and his boyfriend was getting tried of it. I would have allowed him to grieve if it was my boyfriend.

    THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS LOST SOMEONE THEY WERE TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH IS BE THE BEST , SUPPORTIVE FRIEND YOU CAN BE. WORK IN TOOLS THAT WILL RELIEVE THEM FROM SOME OF ALL THAT PAIN. HUG THEM WHEN THEY NEED IT , LET THEM CRY UNTOUCHED SOMETIMES. - IF YOU WANT THIS PERSON , THEN IT WILL TAKE ' TIME AND PSYCHOLOGICAL-TOOLS ' TO > LOVE THEM PAST THEIR PAIN <
