Roland Tec's smart, provocative film, "All the Rage" is set in Boston's boy-beautiful South End, but its story could easily unfold in any gay ghetto -- Miami's South Beach, San Francisco's Castro District, or New York's Chelsea. It is a seriocomic look at a specific gay male type -- the too-handsome-for-his-own-good charmer who doles out his affections in measured portions, but can never quite commit. He's not a bad person, but like so many others, he can't see past his own pretty face. With such a man, what you see is what you get; you just won't get it for long.
