The Dekkoo Digest 029 – 11/18/22

The Dekkoo Digest is back with three new releases this week (of course!). Check out what Ross has to say about the Dekkoo-original series ‘Adam In Fragments’. It’s available to stream now exclusively on Dekkoo!

Watch the trailer for the upcoming Dekkoo-Original Adam in Fragments

Conjuring Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch and Steven Soderbergh all at once, the trailer for the brand-new Dekkoo-Original Adam in Fragments delivers a small taste of the transgressive sights and sounds to come.

Inspired by crime thrillers of the ’70s, this provocative, gritty drama tells the story of one hustler’s odyssey.

After a prolonged disappearance, Adam (Beau Swartz) reluctantly returns to sex work. Following the urge to protect a young aspiring adult film star, Lucy (Keiva Bradley), from their terrorizing handler, Felix (Francisco Antonio), Adam’s actions trigger a series of events that send violent ripples through the Los Angeles underground sex-trade.

Featuring supporting performances from Jonathan Miller, Ryan Ruffing, Joe Garcia and Tara Emerson, Adam in Fragments is the newest film from Omar Salas Zamora, the filmmaker behind Here Comes Your Man and Nothing But Flowers. This time, he is co-directing along with his Here Comes Your Man lead actor Calvin Picou.

“Adam is a career sex worker,” said the directors. “It was interesting to us to look at Adam as someone who doesn’t view himself as a victim of circumstance, and instead takes pride in a skill he’s mastered. His drug use muddies thing for him, but it was important to us that his story should be one where the sex worker doesn’t necessarily want out because he genuinely doesn’t care. His careful anonymity to keep his professional lifestyle livable until the end was a big draw. His noble aspirations to be in control of his life and accountable for his decisions makes him unaware that he’s on a suicide mission.”

The filmmakers hope that audiences “find the humanity in difficult characters. It wasn’t interesting to try to make them heroes, villains or victims – they just needed to exist.”

You can watch the trailer for Adam in Fragments now on Dekkoo. The film will be available to Dekkoo subscribers in November.

***SEASON 2 IS HERE!!***

The Dekkoo-original series ‘Here Comes Your Man’ follows Aaron living his own version of the 21st century gay experience. Along for the ride are his friends and lovers who are all exploring their own ambitions, relationships and dreams in modern day Los Angeles. Both seasons are available to stream now!

Fernando is a teenage boy living in the traditional countryside of São Paulo. With the insurmountable peer pressure to lose his virginity, he ends up engaging in a sexual encounter with an older man he met online. The hook up doesn’t go as expected. ‘Self’ is available to stream now on Dekkoo.

During Passover, Reuben, a French-Jewish man living in Finland with his Nordic boyfriend, finds himself back in Paris with his zany family after a lovers’ quarrel. ‘Let My People Go’ celebrates and upends Jewish and gay stereotypes with wit, gusto and style to spare. The result is deeply heartwarming, fabulously kitschy and hysterically funny.

Two very different young men come together in Here Comes Your Man, a brand-new Dekkoo Original Series that follows their relationship, from beginning to end.

When Jordan (Calvin Picou) and Aaron (Jason Alan Clark) meet in person after exchanging pics and pleasantries on a hook-up app, it’s nervous attraction at first sight. Their initial tryst is fraught with the kind awkward tension that suggests they might not be a perfect match.

On top of that, Aaron is unaware that Jordan is, for all intents and purposes, “straight.” Confused about his sexuality and faking his way through a hetero relationship, Jordan blocks Aaron’s number. When they run into each other in a gay bar weeks later, the truth comes out… and they both find that there is something undeniable about their strange romantic chemistry.

A charming, funny, sexy and refreshingly realistic new 5-episode Dekkoo Original Series from creator/director Omar Salas Zamora, Here Comes Your Man takes us through the entirety of Aaron and Jordan’s tumultuous relationship, jumping father forward in time with each successive episode to show us the most pivotal moments.
