Critique

The idea of a 60-year-old gay man hiding his sexual orientation for his entire life certainly is plausible, though the way in which it is presented in Boulevard, the fifth feature film from Dito Montiel (Empire State), is just downright dull.

Robin Williams stars as Nolan Mack, a man steadfast in his routine bank job and “happy” in his marriage of convenience to Joy (Kathy Baker). One uneventful night, Nolan slowly and deliberately drives down a boulevard known for its streetwalkers and picks up a young male prostitute played (Roberto Aguire). It’s unclear whether or not Nolan has ever done this before since Williams reacts as neither surprised nor accustomed to how the whole scenario goes down. They begin meeting again and again, though their relationship seems more like that of a father and son than one of a sexual nature.

Believability and inconsistent characters are a real factor here. The one time in 26 years that Nolan is 15 minutes late to work, his boss threatens to revoke a potential promotion. Suddenly Nolan’s best friend (Bob Odenkirk) becomes suspicious over incredibly mundane things, and his wife Joy for the majority of the film shows little care for the obvious clues that her husband is gay, and reacts in a way that seems falsely intense, as if she thinks this is how she’s supposed to react.
