Coming Attractions

A few things worth noting:

The Castro is running another 70mm series; their first in several years. It’s a modest one—four films in nine days: West Side Story, Playtime, Vertigo, and Lawrence of Arabia. See Glorious 70mm for my thoughts on the format in general.

Frameline, the Bay Area’s premiere lesbian, gay, bi-, and transgender festival, runs for the 35th time on June 16 – 26 this year at the Castro, Roxie, Victoria, and (for those of us in the East Bay), the Elmwood. This year the festival focuses on the T in LGBT, with several films concerning transgender characters. These include the opening night drama Gun Hill Road and the documentary about Sonny and Cher’s daughter-turned-son, Becoming Chaz. There will also be a number of films about young people and an award for comedian Margaret Cho.

I haven’t seen any of the movies yet, but I can already tell you the best title: Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same. Don’t know if the movie’s any good, but I love the title.

One thought on “Coming Attractions

  1. Hi Lincoln, the film in this year’s Frameline I most want to see is the Argentinian Marco Berger’s latest, ‘Absent’. His ‘Plan B’ was the best in last year’s festival by far, I thought. I reviewed it on Undine, its under ‘Films in Frameline 34’.
