Whatever's happened to good old queer cinema. Where are the Arakis and Jarman's.
I am a bit concerned the way most LGBT cinema has entered the mainstream leaving us at best with shoddy gay zombie films or equally mainstream 'Gays gone wild'. I cant believe this is the same Todd Stephens who delivered the rather powerful Edge of Seventeen.
While I have no problem with the LGBT cinema entering the mainstream- infact it is something worth celebrating, I have grave concerns the way Queer cinema is 'normatising' itself to fit the mainstream moulds.
I am quite dissapointed with the films LLGF has to offer this year. Where the hell is world cinema?
