Mumbled recriminations
Seattle slacker Jack (Mark Duplass) has been beating himself up over his brother's death for a year, so his brother's ex-girlfriend (Emily Blunt) — who is also Jack's best friend— offers him her father's cabin in the San Juan Islands for the weekend to clear his head.

Cannes: Rust and Bone

Cannes turns 65 and shows no signs of retiring

Socialist security
Sixty-five is the age at which people think of retiring. Arguably the world's greatest film festival, Cannes — whose 65th edition began the day after beaming Socialist François Hollande was sworn in as President of France — has no such plans. This year it overflows with riches.

The 2011 Guide To Pride

Scratching the seven-year itch

Review: Kaboom

Less a boom than a whimper
In the late '80s and early '90s, the subversive "New Queer Cinema," with such filmmakers as Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, and Greg Araki, promised a vital gay sensibility in independent film. Since then, Haynes and Van Sant have been absorbed by the mainstream, and gay cinema has deteriorated into inane, lurid rom-coms.

Review: Eyes Wide Open

Melancholy spirituality
Though Hair Tabakman’s intense melodrama seethes with eroticism, for most of the film the only flesh on view is the raw meat in Aaron’s (Zohar Shtrauss, who with his beard looks like Dostoevsky) butcher shop in a stark Haredi neighborhood in Jerusalem.

Review: The Owls

Birds of prey
Down-and-out lesbians on the skids, looking for trouble and doomed to end up with blood on their hands — it’s material that’s always worked wonders for tawdry pulp novels and grindhouse flicks.

Review: The City Of Your Final Destination

A lazy, lush adaptation
Watching a James Ivory film is like entering a room aglow with plush furniture and exuding tasteful music and promising comfort and a brush with sensuality.

Review: Beyond Gay: The Politics Of Pride

Activism on parade
The Gay Pride Parade is one of the best parties of the year — so much so that it’s easy to forget that, not so long ago, it was risky to participate, or that in some cities today, a token gesture of pride can get you imprisoned or killed.

Planning a same-sex wedding
The fact is, most couples argue in the early stages of wedding planning. My partner, Diane, and I are no exception to this rule. Currently, our biggest argument surrounding plans for our wedding is whether or not she can slide into the ballroom during our reception, performing Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" on her air guitar.

Pride at 39

One year shy of middle age, Boston Pride Week has the times on its side
Not to downplay this year's Pride Week or anything, but the annual weeklong mélange of events geared toward New England's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community is just one year shy of its 40th anniversary. Which makes it sort of like the night before Christmas.
