Thread: Queer film, novels, art

  1. #31
    Posted this in the film forum too, but saw Weekend yesterday and it blew me away. I can't imagine any gay guy not finding some part of themselves in one of the two protagonists. The characters are so fully realized and well written. I think it's a revelation and could totally change the scope of gay male depictions in cinema. I hope it finds the audience it deserves.

    The Conrad Boys on Logo AM. Written, directed and starring Justin Lo. Justin's acting was not good. But the writing was great and the directing and camera work were very credible. He must lean more on the writing and directing side because he really stuck out against the rest of the cast who were probably more seasoned and trained in acting.
    I think I like this movie better than Shelter which is very much like it. They are nearly identical thematically and setting-wise.

    Samuel R. Delany's autobiography - The Motion of Light in Water - is one of the best books on earth. I highly recommend it!

    Well, I know Comcast/Xfinity for sure because that's what I have. But maybe other cable companies are providing it as well? I don't know.

    Both great reads:

    Stone Butch Blues by Leslie Feinberg
    Numbers by John Rechy

    And I do have a soft spot for A Home At The End Of The World.

    BBC's adaptation of Christopher Isherwood's biographical novel of the same name. The 'divinely decadent' Berlin cabaret scene is in full swing when a young and wide-eyed Christopher Isherwood arrives in the city to stay with his close friend and occasional lover, the poet WH Auden. To Isherwood's reserved English sensibility, the city's thriving gay subculture is thrilling and intoxicating. But Christopher soon finds himself heartbroken after the failure of a hopeless love affair, and so sets out on a process of self-discovery as he forges an identity and place for himself amidst the chaos of 1930s Berlin.
    Just stumbled across this movie online. I really enjoyed it.

    I now have a crush on the Doctor from Doctor Who.

    ^ That looks interesting.

    I watched Locked Up, a German prison drama the other day. If you're looking for a good movie, skip it. If you're looking for a gay porn with romance and a plot, this is the one.

    I've seen that. I think it was on Netflix. It was completely butchered with editing, then I found out that it was actually shot as hardcore porn and turned into a "movie". So I watched the hardcore porn version online instead.

    The guy was really cute, but that's all I can say for it.

    It is rather enjoyable - especially if you've read anything by Isherwood, who I certainly recommend reading. I've read his Berlin novels, which formed the basis of the movie/musical Cabaret, but not the actual biographical novel that "Christopher And His Kind" is based on.
