It’s pretty good directing when a story can be told with little words but more so with body language. Goldstar not only accomplishes this but also presents us with two Black non-heterosexual masculine leaning men. One even has a regular body (yeah his booty is looking plump in them blue shorts but still). From the brief dialogue it seems Craig went ghost in attempts to escape his sexuality. Unfortunately once again for some reason stories that feature Black men can’t escape the DL trope. Nonetheless, Goldstar is a good super-short film with decent cinematography and audio which is something most Black gay short films / web series struggle to accomplish.
