Queer Flicks From Daniel Radcliffe, James Franco, David Sedaris Head To Sundance
Dec 04, 2012 by gaycities
The 2013 Sundance Film Festival starts January 17, and with it come a slew of LGBT-related movies that will pop up at film festivals, movie houses and awards shows in the months to come.
One film on everybody’s lips (okay, ours) is Kill Your Darlings, the true-crime drama about a murder involving young Beat writers Allen Ginsberg (Daniel Radcliffe), William Burroughs (Ben Foster) and Jack Kerouac (Jack Huston).
In Yen Tan’s Pit Stop, the lives of two working-class gay men in a small Texas town run parallel, before they finally converge.
James Franco and I Want Your Love director Travis Mathews bring “Interior. Leather Bar,” their avant-garde redux of the gay erotic thriller Cruising, to the famed festival. The experimental project imagines what was in the 40 minutes director William Friedkin allegedly cut from the original to avoid an X rating.
Out filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Freidman—collaborators on iconic docs like Paragraph 175, The Celluloid Closet, and The Times of Harvey Milk—team up for Lovelace, a bio-pic about Linda Lovelace (Amanda Seyfried) and the breakthrough porn movie Deep Throat.
Kyle Patrick Alvarez adapts the work of out satirist David Sedaris in C.O.G. The film sees out Glee actor Jonathan Groff playing a smug young Sedaris type stuck in rural Oregon.
In the field of documentary comes director Marta Cunningham’s haunting Valentine Road, which explores the causes and aftermath of the murder of gay student Lawrence King by classmate Brandon McInerney in 2008.
Russia’s queer feminist icons come under the microscope in Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, which look at the band’s message and art—even as they face seven years in prison. The also-very-timely God Loves Uganda investigates the role of Christian fundamentalists—both native preachers and American missionaries—in waging a war ithere against “sexual immorality.”
Then there’s kink, James Franco’s documentary about fetish-porn site Kink.com and its massive ornate headquarters in San Francisco. (Franco has obviously been exploring some dark shit lately.)
And just for laughs: R.J. Cutler and Greg Finton’s The World According to Dick Cheney explores how the former veep became the most powerful man in modern American history.
