A young man loses himself in a bewildering maze of leather, fisting, toilet play, and bondage in 10:30 PM, one of the earliest and most influential experimental gay porn films. The story is non-linear and there is no dialogue. Scenes cut abruptly, characters appear and disappear, and locales change without warning. Some sets are dark and shadowed, others are stark white. Add a creepy melodic soundtrack, trippy effects, and lots of Crisco-slathered hardcore action into the mix, and the result is an atmospheric, Hitchcock-ian mind fuck of a porno that is as disturbing as it is arousing.
A mysterious vintage Rolls Royce pulls into a driveway and whisks protagonist Jeff Sattler away to an old stone mansion. The tall, bearded, sandy blond approaches the house to investigate. Slowly he enters, unaware of the pleasures and perversities that lie within.
A radial whirl transition effect a la Twilight Zone is used whenever Jeff finds himself a different spot in the house. Depending on your taste, the device is a cheesy distraction from the dark mood of the piece or a charming artifact of a more na´ve era of filmmaking. Either way, in narrative terms the effect is meant to suggest that events in the mansion might be taking place only in Jeff?s head.
Jeff follows a white hand painted sign reading ?Bar? and comes upon the bartender, a hot hairy leather man wearing chaps, a leather vest, and an officer?s cap. Other men begin to arrive in various degrees of undress, mostly shirtless and in jeans torn in just the right places. The men start to slap ass, rip pants and suck dick. The sequence is erratically cut and it isn?t always clear who?s doing whom, thereby conveying the confused state of Jeff?s mind. He rips off a brunet?s jeans and rims him ? or maybe just fantasizes that he does, for shortly after he is back leaning against the wall nursing a beer. Next to Jeff a jock-strapped fellow is splayed over the makeshift bar, sucking the butch bartender, as another blond fucks his tight ass.
Jeff stumbles out of the room and down a dark hallway, following another painted sign that says ?Toilet.? Fantasy and reality blur again as we watch Jeff or someone who looks a lot like Jeff, kneeling at a toilet bowl he?d just pissed into. While he?s waiting, a brunet coats his hand liberally in Crisco. We are treated to an excellent shot of the brunet?s hand slowly disappearing up his chute. The fisting event is undercut with shots from other parts of the house. A brunet sits on a wispy blonde?s pole and jerks his own enormously long cock, paying special attention to the deliciously large mushroomed tip. The hunky bartender inserts his hand into a dark-haired fellow who is sucking another cock.
