I look forward to watching more Donald Strachey films!
This film is about Donald Strachey investigating the harassment of a lesbian couple, and he uncovers a lot of dark secrets along the investigation.

"On the Other Hand, Death" maintains the mystery and thrill throughout the film. It has a complicated plot, with a lot of unexpected twists. Though it is refreshing to see such a nicely written mystery, the various parts of the mystery needs a lot of explaining and building up. This makes the first half of the film confusing and seems leading to nowhere. When everything finally falls into place, I am marvelled by the storyline.

The plot's inclusion of confused teens and people with a dark past make the characters more real. In addition, the relationship between Donald and Timothy is loving, not based on sex as other gay films would jump into at once. This is affirmative and encouraging to people who long for lifelong relationships. I enjoyed watching "On the Other Hand, Death", and I look forward to watching more Donald Strachey films.
