Thanks to the splendid folks from Peccadillo Pictures we have – get this – a copy of the excellent film Margarita, which we just reviewed earlier today, AND a signed copy of the filmmakers’ previous film Finn’s Girl. If you don’t win that don’t be worrying, we also have a second copy of Margarita for you to get your mitts on.
Margarita has exactly what you want in a good film; an array of amazing actors, amusing moments and genuinely touching storylines. I’m predicting this dream team as one to watch for the future!
People of Cork, rejoice! The 58th Cork Film Festival runs from November 9 to 17 and is an eclectic mix of films, music and ideas. Plus a load of LGBT films for your enjoyment.
Monsters University has deeper themes chugging deep below the surface are the sort of thing one simply doesn’t expect from a film predominantly aimed at children. In fact they are not themes we often see in mainstream cinema releases at all: failure and personal inadequacy.
It’s almost that time of year again folks, the weekend all LGBT film lovers look forward to. Here’s a sample of the programme so you can have a think about how many films you can squeeze into the long weekend.
HBO’s documentary The Out List was aired earlier this summer and is well worth your time. Consisting of short interviews with a diverse section of our community it makes for an interesting look.
Thanks to the splendid folks from Peccadillo Pictures we have not one, not two, but three copies of the excellent film Stud Life, which we reviewed last week.
You never really know what you’re going to get with films; it’s a deep-set fear of mine that, anticipating an LGBT classic with real depth and meaning, what I’ll actually find is some over-sexualised portrayal of a lesbian relationship. Not so with Stud Life.
Lisa Aschan’s coming of age picture, She Monkeys, guides us through the intricate and at times blurred female adolescent mind set.
It’s not every day that a film about a same-sex relationship wins at Cannes, and certainly not a 3-hour epic which, in detail, depicts a love-making scene for a full 10 minutes.
Vito Russo was a gay activist who stood up for equality and was deeply passionate about LGBT representation in the media. This HBO documentary is a wonderful tribute to his legacy.
I’ve just discovered Pedro Almodóvar and I like him more than I ever thought I could like a director (before this I’d have been hard pushed to identify the effect a director has on his film). I’m currently working my way through his portfolio, there’s plenty to keep my entertained. So far my absolute favourite has to be All About My Mother.
Any girl out there who has experienced the agony of a break up will empathise and possibly compare their own personal experiences to the short and intimate film, The Morning After.
It isn’t easy or cheap to have a child when you’re a lesbian. Less so when you’re a gay man. If you happen to be a single, 30-something gay man who works in a comic book store, the money probably isn’t there.
Turn Me On, Goddammit, is scheduled for release in the United Kingdom on March 25th, and will hit the shelves with a 15 certificate (unsurprising, given the amount of explicit content – including at least two shots of an actual penis – consider yourselves warned!) and a £15. 99 price tag.
Thanks to the splendid folks from Peccadillo Pictures we have not one, not two, but three copies of the excellent film Bumblefuck USA, which we reviewed last week. We also had an interview with the star and the director, coz we’re that cool.
