Overview

The fates of nine people are intricately tied together in director Dean Howell's thoughtful meditation on modern relationships. Ronnie is getting up there in years, and as he begins his journey into the online world he begins to reflect on the many love affairs he has had over the course of his life. Meanwhile, Tony the drug dealer Mikey finds his infatuation with smoldering hustler Bo becoming more intense as he moves dope on the streets to help provide for his mentally handicapped younger brother. On the steamy side of things, television producer Daniel, his boyfriend Corey, and their pool boy Carlos engage in a heated menage-a-trois that threatens to go bad, while Lisa and her harried husband Ralph get ready for the arrival of their firstborn child. Later, when Lisa receives a fateful telephone call, all of these disparate stories slowly begin to come together.

    Coincidences and Consequences

    Based on the Michael Kearns' play 'Complications', NINE LIVES introduces a sequence of the lives of nine men who are interconnected by the fact they are all participants in the roundelay of casual sexual encounters. The technique used is that of each actor speaking to the audience about his background and how each ended up in the rather sad state of living in which they find themselves. The stories are interesting if a bit repetitive (parental abuse of both the verbal and physical type, the agonies of 'coming out'. and the spectre of AIDS), but the script keeps the conversations mixed well with actual encounters so that we the audience are less confessional listeners so much as participants in the results of living life on the edge. The cast is uniformly fine, a factor that keeps the film afloat in many instances. Particularly fine is Steve Callahan ('East Side Story') who seems to have a promising career. Director Dean Howell (who also wrote the screenplay) is another solid actor as are Eric Turic, William Christian, John Ganun, Dennis Christopher, Nick Salamone, Debra Wilson - well, the entire cast. The direction is tight and flows well from 'life to life', using sexual scenes where indicated, and keeping the focus on the darker side of the round of confessions. The cinematography by Mark A. Ryan keeps the look dark and coarse and a bit too much on the dreary side. The makeup artist Shari Balbien is none too kind to the actors' looks. Made in 2004 the film holds up well as far as content, a sad statement about the slow progress in the struggle against HIV infection. Grady Harp
