October 25, 2013 | 0 Comments

An artsy film, Five Dances revolves around a small, but elite dance troupe in New York, which eighteen year old Chip (Ryan Steele) joins in the hopes of escaping the expectations of his Midwest home life. The narrative of this film relies little on dialogue and more on character body language and, of course, dance,...

Quite possibly the only Gay-Jewish-French-Finnish film out there, Let My People Go! Mikael Buch’s debut feature is certainly one of a kind. With a comedic narrative fixed on the road to the upcoming Passover, the film’s protagonist Reuben (Nicolas Maury) has a painful and bumpy ride. Reuben, an overtly camp and melodramatic Frenchman living in...

Les Invisibles is the latest offering from renowned, and awarding winning, filmmaker Sébastien Lifshitz (Director of the beautiful Presque Rien, 2000). His latest non-fiction effort explores the lives of a group of ageing homosexuals in France. In essence it’s an ode to ‘the forgotten gays’, but moreover it’s a fascinating exploration of what it is...

DVD Review – Cal

September 3, 2013 | 0 Comments

So, whilst it’s true that I wasn’t a particular fan of Shank (Pearce 2009), I was curious to see how a sequel to the street-tough original would pan out. I have to admit, it’s interesting to see how the kitchen-sink drama has evolved over time as a genre; in this case repackaged here in terms...

DVD Review – I Want Your Love

July 28, 2013 | 0 Comments

If you’re easily shocked, Travis Mathews’ feature film, I Want Your Love, is probably something you should avoid. This is the film that has set tongues wagging and pulses racing all over the world, except perhaps in Australia where is has been banned. The reason for this is simple; it is entirely uncompromising with its...
