eh, I feel like brooklyn drag has retained a lot of the spirit of what I've seen from east village 80s drag. bushwig has no corporate sponsors and is going on its 8th year this summer. go to metropolitan on a sunday afternoon for merrie cherry's bbq and you'll feel that same communal queer love depicted in the doc. I went there the day after the pulse shooting and it was as welcoming and as safe of a space as one could wish for. there are lots of people, drag queens in particular, who are doing the heavy lifting in new york to keep the queer community vibrant and tolerant.

financialization and its accompanying corporate greed is a much more difficult enemy to locate and mobilize against than the reagan administration was in terms of being a palpable threat to queer livelihoods. there are lots of groups resisting it, though they might not be solely gay/queer, and I think you'd find that sort of political community you're yearning for from this doc. I felt happy watching wig because it helped reinforce the idea that I am liberated, in part thanks to the performers from wigstock and the legacies they sedimented onto new york queer nightlife.

yeah I agree 100%, and it's something i've tried to work on over the past year or two, that whenever i meet and come face-to-face with an older queer performer or activist in this city, to ask questions and really communicate my genuine interest and respect and reverence in their lives and legacies. i do feel so much gratitude towards them. I guess what I was feeling while watching Wig was a yearning to be part of that liberation and to cement a legacy of my own in the lgbtq community and give back in some way, and I just haven't found that yet. but I also don't think I've tried as hard as I could, truthfully.

also thanks for the bushwig and metropolitan reccs, i'm gonna buy tix for bushwig in september now so I don't forget :)

So for the cinema project where they asked me to pick a movie for screening, I ended up going for The Act of Killing. I had actually spent a long time making a shortlist of picks, with Ordet and The Honeymoon Killers near the top. But none of them were possible. Anyway, this is one crazy documentary. They're screening it in September, so I can take all summer building anxiety over having to introduce the film to a room full of people.

Have you seen The Look of Silence? I might like it even more than The Act of Killing but both are phenomenal and so, so bleak.

I actually haven't seen The Look of Silence yet, but the man from the cinema also talked about how good it is. He hadn't seen The Act of Killing. If people show up for this one, it could be a good opportunity talk to him about the possibility of screening The Look of Silence.

The Emigrants (1971)- Jan Troell
Image
The New Land (1972)- Jan Troell
These two films are Troell's masterpieces for me, Sydow and Ullmann were fantastic.
Image
The Roaring Twenties (1939)- Raoul Walsh
Really liked this, Cagney was a force to be reckoned with, and Gladys George gave a great performance.
Image
The Winslow Boy (1948)- Anthony Asquith
Really great film, Donat, Hardwicke, and Leighton all gave magnificent performances.

It was the first time I've been to the theater since my son was born and I think the joy of sitting in the dark with no interruption really affected my review. The past couple days my wife and I have been bringing up issues with it constantly.

How did Molly just wander into her home???

God they really were. I was dying at some of their stuff though. When cassavetes said “who cares if there’s a gate that’s never stopped us before!” And Falk went “never stopped us before? Jesus, they’re gonna think we’re cemetary freaks!” :lol:

The Colour Of Pomegranates (1969)- Sergei Parajanov
This was mesmerising, the editing, sound design, and use of colour were especially amazing.
Image
The Killing (1956)- Stanley Kubrick
This ruled.
Image
The Marriage Of Maria Braun (1979)- Rainer Werner Fassbinder
Really loved this.
Image
The Suspect (1944)- Robert Siodmak
This ruled, Laughton was pretty much perfect, and loved the almost gothic mood in a few scenes.

Pom Poko (Takahata, 1994) - this is basically Studio Ghibli's Battle of Algiers, starts off you think it's just gonna be an environmentalist parable but then it becomes a legit study of collective action, ideological warfare, genocide, assimilate-or-die, etc. straight-up masterpiece imo.
