Dear Pillow

With a mercilessness that suggests Todd Solondz, writer-director Bryan Poyser tackles our modern obsession with sex, as a horny teenage boy bonds with a gay neighbor who writes porn for a living. The boy is desperate to get laid but still uncertain about his sexuality; the older man seems to be on the prowl, but he's also willing to set the kid up with a woman as long as he can film it. The graphic, rambling dialogue rings true, and Rusty Kelley is utterly convincing as the teenager, whose inner struggles register in his awkward, closed-in posture and inability to look anyone in the eye. This is the kind of story that leaves you feeling vaguely dirty, but that's a good thing. 85 min.
