1) The Unseen - with Gale Harold, Steve Harris

I haven't seen it anywhere online, either, but I really hope you can get a hold of it and watch it. Out of all the movies Gale's made, I like this one best. The plot is engrossing, and Gale has done some of his best work in this film.

Oh ok,thanks. I really hope I can too...I really want to see him at his best. XD (not that he wasn't doing that in his other works and QAF,but still...) So what is it about anyway? :)

Oh, yes, Gale is always at his best (especially in QAF). I just meant the role he plays in The Unseen is very intense and emotional - he's absolutely perfect for it. No other actor does brooding better than Gale Harold.

It's hard for me to describe without spoiling it for you, but the main gist revolves around his relationship with a childhood friend, who is African American. It takes place in the deep south, a region of the U.S. where race relations is a complicated, sensitive issue.

On a fun, upbeat note, the movie was filmed back when Gale was still working on QAF, and Michelle Clunie is his girlfriend in it. It was so cool to see "Brian" and "Melanie" liking each other. LOL

Yeah, well if Gale perfected brooding anywhere it was QAF lol! :)

Thanks. Now I REALLY WANT to see the movie :(

Yeah,that would be refreshing lol. Tho,to be honest...Brian and Mel had a personality conflict. But she did help Brian when he needed,like with Kip and getting the community to donate money to Brian's fake political group when he went into debt to bring down Stockwell.
