Be sure to check out this amazing short film, Steam, by Jewish filmmaker Eldar Rapaport. It's only 13 minutes, but the conclusion of the movie will shock you. AfterElton called it "provocative," but I call it "brilliant."
A man finds himself in a steam-room wearing nothing but a towel, he is not alone. Another man is sitting next to him. After a brief encounter, the two realize that they can't find the door out. A modern take on Sartre's NO EXIT, the men, moving between anxiety, reflection, fear and finally revelation, try to decipher the meaning of the situation they are in. Where are they? How did they get here? Why? Finally, they realize their unspoken past and the devastating outcome of their actions.
Rapaport told Logo that, "I would like people to walk away a bit shell shocked, still thinking about my film, and our ideas of religion, life and death in our society." He's successful; after watching it last night right before bed, I woke up this morning thinking about it and wanting to watch it again.
