If you've never read Freak Show by James St. James — as I hadn't, until recently — do! It's a darkly funny coming-of-age story about a flamboyant kid attempting to adapt to his decidedly non-flamboyant surroundings, and it couldn't be more timely.

Now, Trudie Styler is making her directorial debut with a feature adapted from the novel, and I was lucky enough to be invited to the NYC premiere last night ...

Contract Playa: A Review Of SCOTTY AND THE SECRET HISTORY OF HOLLYWOOD Comments (0)

T-scotty-bowers“I created the rainbow in Hollywood.” — Scotty Bowers (Image via Altimeter Films)

Five years ago, I posted a review of the book Full Service, the as-told-to story of Scotty Bowers, a 21430294_1815779352046499_9204368091529911051_nHollywood gas station owner who claims to have become a procurer for some of Hollywood's biggest names from the '40s onward, including Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, George Cukor, Rock Hudson and many more.

Along with hooking them up with sex partners, he also claims to have had sex with many of them himself, including Bette Davis, Walter Pidgeon and both Cary Grant and Randolph Scott.

Gore Vidal on Scotty Bowers

The comments on my review were largely critical, blowing him off as a liar in spite of the support of Gore Vidal and other serious people who wanted us to know Scotty was the real deal.

I prefer this take: 

Now, director Matt Tyrnauer has shot a compelling documentary on the man of 1,000 facials, and I think Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood far surpasses the book as both art and documentation that Bowers was probably every bit as busy as he boasts ...

Savage Lust + Trump Wants Death Penalty (I Would've Been Satisifed With Prison, But Let Him Have It!) + Christmas Carol + Spacey Seeking Treatment + Brazile Trashes Hillary + Rose Marie's Must-See Doc — 6-PACK! Comments (0)

Terry-Miller11-534x780Dan Savage has been trashed by some in the gay community over issues of race, so it's maybe a little daring for his boyfriend, Terry Miller, to pose for literal re-creations of classic Tom of Finland BDSM images that were very racially driven to begin with.

Some of the shots work, some don't. Terry's got the body of death, that's for sure.

Keep reading for more of that deadly body, plus Trump's terror-ifying folly, a Carol Burnett ornament, Kevin Spacey's new treatment, Donna Brazile twisting the knife in Hillary and a rave review of a doc about a 94-year-old showbiz legend ...

Crying To Your Soul: A Review Of BPM (BEATS PER MINUTE) Comments (0)

**IMG_1134_newI caught France's submission for this year's Best Foreign Language Oscar, BPM (Beats Per Minute), and found it to be a sneakily emotional film, one that begins as a fairly dry protest procedural but gradually becomes a deeply moving look at an all-too-short love affair ended by AIDS.

Keep reading for a full review and pics from one of the film's NYC preview screenings ...
