The Wedding Banquet by Ang Lee is probably the first gay film I ever saw and it’s still on top of my list today. I remember watching it the first time, and found myself laughing hysterically and yet was touched by the characters at the same time. That’s when I first discovered the genre of dramedy and that a film does not always require an evil villain to forge conflicts. Another film I loved is Totally F***ed Up by Gregg Araki because it has such a raw portrayal on the angst and fear of being a gay teen that is still very relevant today.”

“I love Weekend by Andrew Haigh. I think it’s important to use film as a platform to stress the very real and present discrimination that occurs for people of the LGBT community today as well as the past. But it is sometimes nice to have a film that shows the day to day mundane problems single LGBT men (or women) go through that are extremely similar to heterosexual men and women. Haigh places his story in a fairly accepting community, with a character who has both straight and gay friends, and allows us to watch him (in a very naturalistic style) make the common human mistakes we all make in trying to find someone who is right and good for us. Also, he shows his central character grapple with macro (non-love related struggles) life decisions that we all come across whether we are gay or straight. In the end it reminds us that we are all way more similar than we are different, and the idea of discriminating against groups based on trivial small differences is absurd.”

“I loved Longtime Companion. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen it, but I remember being so taken in by this group of friends and their struggle to live with the reality of AIDS. I also LOVE Transparent. My sister and I appreciate the reality of the family dynamic. We know that if our father came out as transgender that we would behave EXACTLY like his kids!! Last but not least, Angels in America because Tony Kushner creates a world filled with characters that are so flawed and so insanely courageous at the same time.”

“My favorite LGBT movie is also one of my Top Five Favorites of all time, Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain. I strongly identified with Ennis and Jack’s emotional struggle to be true to their forbidden love. Much easier said than done when you’re a gay cowboy in macho, gun-toting, Wyoming during the 60’s and 70’s. The idyllic moments they shared on Brokeback juxtaposed by their superficial lives back in town, to the deep meaning of the unforgettable Last Line and Final Image of the movie make Brokeback Mountain a masterpiece. Upon each viewing, I appreciate it more and more, and strive to live by its message.”

Posted on June 11, 2015  | Filed Under New DVD Releases | Comments Off on Match


DVD Wolfe Price: $19.95 Available: August 11, 2015

Synopsis:

Patrick Stewart gives a captivating performance in this witty, emotionally gripping adaptation of director Stephen Belber’s own Tony Award-nominated play.

Stewart stars as Tobi, an eccentric, pot-smoking Manhattan ballet instructor whose quiet life is interrupted by the arrival of a young couple (Carla Gugino & Matthew Lillard) from Seattle, presumably there to interview him about his colorful life as a dancer in the 1960s. As Tobi spins salacious tales from his former career, an ulterior motive for the couple’s visit emerges, forcing the trio to confront a secret that may connect them all.

Driven by Stewart’s tour-de-force performance, MATCH moves masterfully between razor-sharp comic banter and heartrending poignancy.

Starring Patrick Stewart (X-men series, Star Trek: First Contact), Carla Gugino (Watchmen, Sin City, Night at the Museum) and Matthew Lillard (The Descendants, Scooby-Doo)


Year Produced: 2014

Seashore

Posted on June 3, 2015  | Filed Under New DVD Releases | Comments Off on Seashore


DVD Wolfe Price: $19.95 Available: August 04, 2015

Synopsis:

Having been good friends for years, Martin and Tomaz now find themselves on the cusp of adulthood. Martin’s father sends his son to southern Brazil, where the family is from, to sort out an inheritance matter. Tomaz accompanies him there. For both of them, the brief excursion to the coastal town becomes a journey into themselves. It’s not just the sea that nearly reaches the doors of the country house which exerts a slow, yet relentless pull on them – the two friends have the same effect on one other.

Filipe Matzembacher and Marcio Reolon’s richly atmospheric, autobiographically inspired feature debut follows its two main characters on a weekend that will change their relationship forever. Seashore wanders through the borderlands between love and friendship, exploring sexual orientation and personal identity.

The outstanding camerawork picks up on the protagonists’ complex emotional states in the same way as the soundtrack captures the roaring of the sea: gentle and powerful in equal measure. Always on an equal footing with the subject and the characters, the film creates a moment of magic and tenderness. Looking for love and finding it are sometimes one and the same thing.


Year Produced: 2015
Directed By: Filipe Matzembacher, Marcio Reolon
Starring: Mateus Almada, Maurício José Barcellos
Language: Portuguese
Run Time: 83 min.
