    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "Fat Girls" Director Ash Christian

    Actor/director Ash Christian's "Fat Girls" center on Rodney (Christian) and his Rubenesque friend Sabrina (Ashley Fink) are valiantly suffering through the indignity known as high school. Both are outcasts; he's gay and she's overweight. Trapped in a small Texas town and having come to accept his "fat girl" within, Rodney is an aspiring Broadway star who musters up the energy to confront his fears and take life -- and the hot new student from England -- by the horns. "Fat Girls" won best feature at the North Carolina, Birmingham and Indianapolis gay fests as well as the "Coup de Coeur" at the Image + Nation Montreal gay fest. Regent Releasing...

    REVIEW | Return of the Repressed: William Friedkin's "Cruising"

    There are untold artistic benefits to living in a culture of critical reassessment--otherwise, what would current generations think of "Vertigo?" But if the glut of superfluous "special edition" DVD packages over the past ten years is any indicator, then there are also some sorry side effects. Falling somewhere between the enshrined camp package ("Mommie Dearest"'s Hollywood Royalty Edition, complete with John Waters commentary track!) and the sober-minded resurrection of the long unavailable and disenfranchised as crucial artifact (the recent "Films of Alejandro Jodorowsky" box set, featuring "El Topo") will surely be Warner Home Video's imm...

To celebrate its silver anniversary festival organizers honored the history of queer cinema, publishing the "25 Films That Changed Our Lives," a list compiled from over 1,000 responses to their inquiries, and held special screenings for four of those films including "High Art," "I've Heard the Mermaids Singing," "Longtime Companion," and "Poison," the last accompanied by a tribute to actor and editor Jim Lyons.
