ONE OF Judas Kiss‘ best reviews appeared on the EDGE Network this week, calling the film “amazingly well-made [with] great acting, including Brent Corrigan’s first major acting role, great editing, and an interesting plot.”
The review, written by Christian Cintron, highlights Judas Kiss as a “deep, insightful film” that refuses to follow “the typical formula of sex scene, bad dialogue, sex scene. In the end, it turns you on mentally as well as physically.” He goes on to observe:
Judas Kiss … explores some of the shadows we run from as gay men and the toxic and self-destructive decisions we make. … It also offers a different take on the cliché time travel idea of “If I could only go back” by positing that sometimes we need to turn and face consequences rather than run from our past. It’s an entertaining film that makes you think.
Cintron also singles out the acting by Charlie David (“substance, depth and real drama”), Richard Harmon (“haunting”), Brent Corrigan (“amazing … coy, innocent and deliciously dorky”), and the comic relief offered by Julia Morizawa as Abbey Park.
