USA, 2002.  Screenplay by .  Cinematography by .  Produced by , .  Film Editing by Susan Turley.  

Or as the full title reads, The Modus Operandi Of Male Intimacy. A great title leads to a bitter disappointment in this unwatchable piece of garbage, shot in 18 days on a miniscule budget (and boy, does it show). Performance artist and drifter Jonathan insinuates himself into the life of supposedly happy couple Michael and Tom by crashing on their couch during his stay in Los Angeles. Seeing as how Michael and Tom have been fighting since the opening scene (right after having sex), you’re almost hoping that the new guy will do it with one of them and stop their incessant whining.  Once Jonathan has stayed long enough we learn that he’s actually running from some organized crime thugs who will stop at nothing to catch up with him. Bad writing, direction and atrocious acting will make you want to turn it off before you’re ten minutes into it.
