Two guys (one of them gay) and a girl come of age in the SF Peninsula community of Colma, with songs and dancing. H.P. Mendoza (he wrote the screenplay and songs, and plays Rodel, the gay guy) and director Richard Wong's winning portrait of post-adolescent life in the foggy "graveyard town" makes it look like the most magical place on Earth, with songs actually worth listening to ("Colma Stays," "Crash the Party") and the instant-classic "Deadwalking" production number in the cemetery, complete with waltzing ghosts among the tombstones. Few San Francisco movies have captured the multiculti, mellow-melancholic spirit of the place like this one does. Great sound mix and imaginative on-location camera work, too. Costarring Jake Moreno and L.A. Renigen.
