The shower scene has always played a pivotal point of climax in most gay movies. And as is often the case, it features the regular drill where the main couple of the film gently touch and wash each other’s body, push one another against the wall, and force a deep and intimate kiss on each other. River Knows Fish Heart is no exception to this rule as it follows the same with An He and Xiao Yu engaging in intense acts over the shower clearly demonstrating the sexual tension between the two.

Esprit de Crops (Philippines)

Esprit de Corps is a queer story of two cadets and their pursuit to outwit a corrupt Major Mac Favila for his position. An adaptation of Auraeus Solito's play by the same name from the 1980s Esprit de Corps is about the game of seduction and ranks in the Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) in the Philippines. Many cadets are aspiring for the position of Major Mac Favila, who is every cadet's ideal officer considering he is sharp, snappy, witty, and most of all the most masculine among all other officers. Private Abel Sarmiento, who was abused when he was a child, and Cain Fujika, a Filipino-Japanese whose mother worked abroad as a japayuki are the top contenders for his position. No matter how corrupt the methods are, they will do anything to win this position.

The film features several scenes that depict the abuse of authority by superior officers towards their subordinates in the military as they inflict brute corporal punishment, verbal humiliation, and force strip on those below them by rank. The movie is intent on testing its audience’s limits as it is filled with scenes where soldiers are made to take off every piece of clothing from their well-built bodies and made to scream dirty abusive lines with Major Mac ultimately asking his fellow soldiers, ”Do you think this is the moment that should stay for eternity with us?” If you are the soldier, how are you going to reply to that?
