    In Between The Extremes: Jesse Rosen On "The Art of Being Straight"

    Jesse Rosen's directorial debut, "The Art of Being Straight," follows 23-year old Jon (played by Rosen), who has just moved to Los Angeles from New York, ostensibly "taking a break" from his longtime girlfriend. Jon is hardly comfortable discussing his shifting Kinsien scale placement, and his new job as bottom-rung gofer at a major ad agency is fraught with sexual tension as a studly boss (Johnny Ray Rodriguez) barrages him with thinly veiled come-ons. Infamous among his buddies as a womanizer, Jon is more surprised than anyone when he ultimately falls for his boss’ seductive charms, which sends him spiraling into a world of sexual confusion...

    A Triumph of Passion: "Herb & Dorothy" Director Megumi Sasaki

    Megumi Sasaki's doc "Herb & Dorothy' tells the story of Herbert Vogel, a postal clerk, and Dorothy Vogel, a librarian, who managed to build one of the most important contemporary art collections in history with very modest means. In the early 1960's, when very little attention was paid to Minimalist and Conceptual Art, Herb and Dorothy Vogel quietly began purchasing the works of unknown artists. Devoting all of Herb's salary to purchase art they liked, and living on Dorothy's paycheck alone, they continued collecting artworks guided by two rules: the piece had to be affordable, and it had to be small enough to fit in their one-bedroom Manhatt...

    "I'm Surprised When Anybody Likes It": Soderbergh On His "Girlfriend Experience"

    "The Girlfriend Experience," a riveting provocation from Steven Soderbergh, is so organic and of a piece - it contains nothing extraneous, nothing that doesn't serve its central concern. Take, for example, the voice of a ritzy call girl named Chelsea, played by porn starlet Sasha Grey. Chelsea's f...
