Gaby Dunn's short film 40 is a rare combination of cheerful and mind-blowing, exploring what happened when her father hit 40 and met his birth dad for the first time, and how that monumental event informed the rest of his — and eventually Gaby's — life.

Michael Moore says of Fahrenheit 11/9, his new doc about Trump's power grab:

Fuck hope. Seriously, fuck hope. Fuck despair, too. But fuck hope. Hope is passive. Hope gives you permission to let someone else do the work. Hope leads people to believe that tax returns, or a pee tape, or the FBI or an adult film star will save the country. Hope, and the passivity that comes with it, is what helped get us here to begin with. It’s the lazy way out. We don’t need hope. We need action. 

Check out the trailer — film's out September 21 — after the jump ...

Buddy, Buddy: Wild Q&A With Scotty Bowers & Director Matt Tyrnauer @ IFC Comments (0)

Matt Tyrnauer, director of the documentary Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood, brought his baby to NYC's IFC for an East Coast IMG_1899*****_newopening — and in a last-minute surprise, his twinkling-eyed subject Scotty Bowers tagged along with him!

Bowers, in NYC for the first time in decades, was very witty in the talkback after the 7:35 p.m. showing Saturday evening (and in an intro for the next screening that I also captured), amazing considering the 95-year-old underwent dialysis the day before his cross-country flight and had attended a party and given several similar talkbacks at IFC upon landing. Even more incredibly, he went from IFC over to the historic Stonewall Inn, receiving admirers (and scarfing down pizza) until 12:45 a.m.

I guess I shouldn't be so surprised that Bowers has stamina, considering he claims to have had half a dozen sexual trysts a day during his prime, many of them with Golden Era household names. (It ain't often that you hear someone stating flatly, “I fucked Bette Davis.”)

Scotty Bowers is celebrating the success of the doc on his life, Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood, which opened with a stellar per-screen average this weekend.

His quote — unlike his pretty awesome peen — is priceless:

Scotty Bowers Measures Up As A Sex Icon In Newly Unearthed Photos! Comments (0)

It's no secret that I was a fan of the salacious Scotty Bowers memoir (full review here), and am an even bigger fan of Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood, the Matt Tyrnauer documentary on the notorious hustler and pimp's storied life that comes out Friday, July 27.

One thing that fed skepticism in the tawdry stories from his book — but that also makes sense if you take him at his word regarding his countless couplings with A-list stars, randy studio employees, married businessmen and other assorted horndogs — was the absence of images showing Scotty with any stars, or at least in action.

As handsome as he appeared in old photos, especially during his WWII days, the now-95-year-old Bowers was sort of a blank slate. You knew what he was telling you he was capable of, and what he had done, you knew he was supposedly well-endowed enough to stir drinks with it, but you couldn't quite picture it. 

Imagining Scotty getting off with the likes of Spencer Tracy or gaily enjoying a threesome with Cary Grant and Randolph Scott got a little easier with the release of the doc, which — incredibly! — coughs up footage of Scotty at a Hollywood (no stars) orgy in the '50s or early '60s.

I caught a screening of McQueen, the new documentary that attempts to capture in a bottle the genie that was designer Lee Alexander McQueen, and it went a long way toward filling in the blanks I had regarding the troubled talent's stratospheric rise and fall in the world of fashion.
