My friend Gordon forwarded me this story from the U.K. about Don Bachardy's views of Tom Ford's A Single Man, adapted from the famous Christopher Isherwood novel. Bachardy, Isherwood's lover of many years, loves the film, while others think it too pretty. I thought the prettiness fit perfectly with the story. The piece also argues, in reference to the Ford's insistence his film is not "gay":
"Not since Steven Spielberg directed the slave epic Amistad in 1997 has a director's identity politics been such a part of a film's buzz."
Regardless, the interview with Bachardy is well worth a look—as is A Single Man.
