independent film, lgbtq film, gay film

This past Spring Boston’s LGBTQ Film Festival a.k.a. Wicked Queer, showcased the Portuguese film, The Ornithologist. The film returns to the Boston area and will play at The Brattle Theatre starting Friday, Sept. 1st.

You can purchase your tickets from the Brattle online, here.

ABOUT THE ORNITHOLOGIST: Director João Pedro Rodrigues reimagines the myth of Saint Anthony of Padua as a modern-day parable of sexual and spiritual transcendence. On a bird-watching expedition in the remote wilderness, Fernando (Paul Hamy) capsizes and loses his bearings. His ensuing odyssey, both intensely physical and wildly metaphysical, involves sadistic Chinese pilgrims, a deaf-mute shepherd named Jesus, pagan tribes, Amazons on horseback, and a glorious variety of feathered friends.

New trailer for Call Me By Your Name

gay literatureEarlier this spring I shared a video for a forthcoming  movie based on a popular gay novel Call Me By Your Name .

The new trailer which was released last week gives a glimpse to the film that is scheduled to open in theaters in November 2017. If you are unfamiliar with the book, go out and buy a copy. The story centers around Elio played by Timothée Chalamet and the American graduate student, Oliver, who moves in with Elio’s family in Italy for the summer, played by Armie Hammer.

Style Council: My Ever Changing Moods

This past week one of my favorite bloggers, Kenneth Walsh, shared a recent, live acoustic version of this song, and I’ve been hard pressed to get the band out of my head. The Style Council was a UK band from the 1980s that enjoyed fantastic success it seems everywhere but the US.

Were you a fan of  Style Council? What was your favorite song?

Gollum reads Donald Trump tweets

Andy Serkis, Trump Tweets

Andy Serkis is an English actor and director probably best known as the voice of Gollum, a fictional character from The Lord of the Rings movies. Last week he happened to be on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert when the host, Stephen Colbert, asked if he would read one of Donald Trump’s recent tweets.

This could make for a great political commercial next fall. It is both hilarious and frightening. If you missed it, check out this 90-second clip.

Penis cakes are all the rage in Taiwan

This is both hilarious and difficult to watch, and it may not be appropriate to watch in front of children or at the office. According to The LAD Bible an Australian Facebook page that posts funny videos and photos, these “Penis Cakes” are a traditional treat in Taiwan.

I feel like I need to share this with Shane (Connie’s Bakery) and Frank (Relish) or perhaps this might be an alternative to pizza for a late night bite at Spiritus.
