So Madonna directed this movie, everyone. She has officially taken her passion for England to a new level, from fake British accent to actual British history flick, telling the story of Wallis Simpson, the divorced American woman who stole the heart of King Edward VIII and caused him to abdicate the throne for love -- a story that gets partially told in The King's Speech. It's called W.E., which stands for Wallis and Edward, and this was apparently how they signed letters after they were married. And because Madge probably thinks it's Academy Award-worthy, she's waited until year's end to release the thing. Anyway, the costumes look nice.
Well, it won some prizes at OutFest in L.A. this year, and the production values look pretty high. But if you're not into hairy fat guys kissing, we don't necessarily recommend watching this trailer for Bear City, a new movie coming soon to a gay ghetto indie cinema (or Netflix queue) near you. Hey, the bears deserve their own round of shitty gay rom-coms, right? We're actually surprised it took this long. [via JoeMyGod, natch]
Behold this trailer, for the little known 1970 "gay erotic thriller" A Deep Compassion, which promises to be an "epic of Biblical proportions!" but is really just an early rape-fantasy flick. The best part: it features a blind, blond twink who like to read his braile books by the Victrola, until someone decides to "have a little fun" and ass-rape him.
This would be San Francisco indie cinema, kids: a film about a Filipina artist who's a big fag hag and makes a lot of art about finding her biological parents while also hanging out in Dolores Park a lot. Also, it's a musical, from the guy who made Colma: The Musical, which we're sure at least one or two of you has gotten from Netflix.
We hate Harmony Korine (Kids, Gummo, Mister Lonely) as much as anyone else, and think he's a sad, silly, uninteresting provocateur. But nevertheless he's still making movies, and his latest, Trash Humpers, features some elderly freaks (who are actually younger actors in freaky latex masks) who like to hump dumpsters, and garbage bags. In any event, we enjoy the VHS aesthetic of the trailer, and now we don't have to watch the film. [Flavorpill]
Life During Wartime is a sequel of sorts to Happiness, the controversial 1998 film by our favorite fag filmmaker (next to Todd Haynes, of course), Todd Solondz. He's also the guy who created Dawn Wiener of Welcome to the Dollhouse, and this new movie features an ensemble cast of many of the same characters from Happiness, only recast with different actors. It stars Allison Janney, Ally Sheedy, Paul Reubens, and Ciaran Hinds in the pedophile role originated by Dylan Baker.
Oh, this is just a perfect late-afternoon treat for your Friday. The theatrical trailer for Scorchy, a proudly B-grade piece of cinema from the glorious 1970s starring the squeaky voiced Connie Stevens and several very hot male costars. She's like the white Foxy Brown, and we need to own this. [Muchos gracias to Rose et Ridé. How can we ever repay you?]
