The Suicide Vests of Cherbourg

Dennis Cooper has left an impressive mark on gay fiction, with his George Miles cycle and five subsequent novels. In the past two years, he’s turned to screenwriting in collaboration with French director Zac Farley, making “Like Cattle Towards Glow” and “Permanent Green Light.” Comment

Never All That Great

In his novel “Requiem For a Nun,” William Faulkner wrote, “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” That quote is now too famous for director Robert Greene to use an epigraph for his hybrid non-fiction film “Bisbee ’17,” but it’s a very fitting way to describe a movie whose imagery suggests an American version of the Holocaust tied together with premonitions of our contemporary disastrous xenophobia.

Working It

If you’re looking for pure, undemanding fun on Broadway this summer, well, there’s no shortage of shows. “School of Rock” is going strong. “Head Over Heels” is pure fun, and “SpongeBob SquarePants” is inspired silliness, but you’ll want to see that soon — it closes next month. Comment

Poignantly Quiet Desperation

A 4K restoration of out gay filmmaker Terence Davies’ landmark 1988 feature debut “Distant Voices, Still Lives” gets a week-long run at the Metrograph starting August 31. The film, a bleak and lyrical drama, tells the story of a working class family in 1950s Liverpool in two parts. The first half, “Distant Voices,” features the death of the father (Pete Postlewaite) and how his wife (Freda Dowie), and children, Eileen (Angela Walsh), Tony (Dean Williams), and Maisie (Lorraine Ashbourne), remember him. The second half, “Still Lives,” which is set and shot two years later, focuses on the children getting married and, in some cases, starting their own families. Comment

Apocalypse Any Day Now

A 63-minute 3D non-narrative film inspired by a hurricane’s impact on Texas, Blake Williams’ “Prototype” is undoubtedly going to be the most adventurous film to get a theatrical release in New York this year (even if it’s telling that this is happening at a museum). So far Abbas Kiarostami’s “24 Frames” is its only real competition. Comment
Glimmerglass’s 2018 season continued with an inspiriting production of Leos Janacek’s 1924 “The Cunning Little Vixen,” surely the first opera based on a comic strip. Aged 69 at […] Comment
