It's All Relative: New STAR WARS Is Light-Years Ahead Of Previous Sequels Comments (0)

Star-Wars-The-Force-Awakens-Rollie-Pollie-DroidMoving things forward, with a wink


Film-news-star-wars-the-force-awakens-second-teaser-trailer-drops2I was honored to be invited to attend a special press screening of Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens, at which I spotted Taran Killam & Bobby Moynihan, Whoopi Goldberg leaning over the back of her seat to chat with Jeffrey Tambor (I was dying to tell him I've loved him since The Ropers), Tamron Hall, Natalie Morales, Michael Musto and more.

But the real stars were up on the screen, and it was an unexpected treat to see the original Star Wars leads—Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher—reunited and given important roles in a sequel that for the first time since the fun of Return of the Jedi is worthy of a series that is inarguably the most beloved in Hollywood history.

Director J.J. Abrams has never been my cup of tea, but he certainly understood his task in making this rollicking installment, a movie that successfully, effortlessly mirrors the tongue-in-cheek goofiness, big-hearted moral center, charm, snappy dialogue, iconic music and unique visual flair of the first three films. Uncannily, in spite of advances made in the FX field, Abrams even delivers a movie that preserves the slightly creaky technology of those first classics—and why not? The originals reflected a time and place so insular from our own that a story picking up 30 years later should not reflect all the advances made in our own moviemaking recent history.

Those Were The Gays, My Friend: A Review Of REEL IN THE CLOSET Comments (0)

1974NYPGayPrideParadefromReelInTheClosetCopsucker

On Saturday, I was excited to be able to catch an NYC screening of Stu Maddux's documentary Reel in the Closet, which presents dozens of rare clips from home movies (including footage shot from TV, some of which is the only copy of such newscasts known to exist) that show queer people living queer lives.

Framed by a narrative of preservation—we meet several prominent archivists who have devoted themselves to the painstaking task of transferring one-of-a-kind home movies to the digital medium—the film is itself a one-of-a-kind document, a hub that shows images never meant to be shared outside a small circle of intimates, but that must now be shared in order to create a historical record of queer living. 

Among the most amazing finds would be a short piece of film from inside a lesbian nightclub 65 years ago, including incredible footage (with sound) of women singing to butch/femme couples. We have to wait until the end to get some erotica (well-off white gay dudes sunbathing), but it's worth the wait.

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 10.35.12 PM

There is also a wealth of raw footage provided by a sneaky film editor who took it from the stations for which he worked in San Francisco, which means that truly unique footage from the White Night Riots is forever preserved.


Framegrabrotatormaster2xcnx1-375x275_cBut as interesting as these unusual bits are, just as compelling is the footage that shows gay people in their day-to-day existences, being goofy, showing off and playing to the camera. Many are people who are unknown to us now, while some—including a wealthy dentist who documented decades of his life—seem to have succeeded in achieving a slice of immortality.

Due to the resources required, most of the footage comes from privileged white men (cameras were expensive!), but Maddux makes sure to reflect people of color and women and drag queens/genderqueer individuals. One part of the movie that sort of leapt out to me was when a trans woman (perhaps she would have been called a transvestite back then) spoke about how drag queens started Stonewall—and this footage was from the '70s, so the recent controversy about whether that impression is true has to take into account the fact that it was widely believed from shortly after the event.

Don't miss Maddux's scrupulously assembled, deeply respectful documentary, and visit his site if you have what you think might be unique footage showing gay life in home movies.

Keep reading for Maddux's remarks before and after the NYC screening ...

It Happened One Night: Roland Emmerich Accidentally Tosses A Brick At The Legacy Of Stonewall Comments (0)

UnnamedI didn't honor a boycott. There is a difference between getting something wrong and deliberately getting something wrong.

At one point during Roland Emmerich's embarrassingly misguided take on the Stonewall Riots, invented character Danny (plush blond Brit Jeremy Irvine, whose accent emerges even more often than homophobic violence in the film) exclaims that he's so angry he just wants to break something

So did I, not long after one the movie's earliest, most excruciating scenes, in which aw-shucks Indianan Danny, who we soon learn has been cast out of his idyllic Midwest home for being a damn dirty queer, is slobbered over by a drag queen who won't take no fucking way for an answer. The reason for my disgust was not that the character (overplayed to the hilt to Richard Jutras) was a cliché, so much as it was that the scene was constructed to make the audience cringe. Danny's excuse for being uncomfortable is that he's had zero exposure to any homosexuals other than the strapping fellow closet-case back home (played by a Marlon Brando-channeling Karl Glusman) with whom he is in love, but what is the filmmakers' excuse?

Why does a film so earnestly about LGBT rights that it ends with a mini history lesson on the subject spend so much time seeming to grimace at the LGBT characters who aren't pretty enough?
