The Skin I Live In

Pedro Almodovar’s new movie The Skin I Live In will have it’s premiere in Cannes next week. The film’s poster could also be an ad for Bodyworlds. This better be a good sign. Apparently the movie is based on Thierry Jonquet’s novel “Mygale”, this revenge tale tells the story of a plastic surgeon on the hunt for the men who raped his daughter. It’s also the first time in 21 years that Antonio Banderas is going to be featured in an Almodovar film.

In this still from the movie actress Elena Anaya looks like she’s wearing a Margiela bodysuit.
I mean I have not seen one from La Maison MM like this, but couldn’t it be?

Rise!

Helllllo, I'm huuuur!

‘Rise of the Apes’ is set in present day San Francisco where man’s experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence of apes and the onset of a war for supremacy. (source)

That is the sentence that got me into the apes almost a year ago. I had forgotten about it up until I found the trailer today. And now it stars James Franco. Hopefully, there is an ape – human sex scene!
Anyways, I’m very much entertained by the fun-romantic-creepiness picture above.

Watch the trailer or here.

Get Over It (July) and Get Into It (August)

There’s no Hotnuts in July. We need a short summer break. Sorry. BUT – we’re coming back with a megabang at the end of August. Cody Critcheloe of SSION (prəˈnounst ‘shun’) is going to be in town for the Toronto premiere of his movie BOY. The screening is going to be at Mercer Union on Saturday, August 28.

And afterwards, join us for Hotnuts. Or will it be Boynuts? I dunno. Cody will be performing and shake some iPods. And I heard, KevinHBomb might bring some house music?! YAY!

For a SSION mixtape, head over to DIS magazine.

Clown, one of my favourite songs from the SSION album, got a music video this year. You have probably seen this already, if not, get on it… Kansas City, here we go.

Raw at Inside Out

This Friday, get ready for a great night at Inside Out, Toronto’s LGBTTIQQ2S film and video festival.

There is a rare screening of Viola Klein’s movie Raw. Doc Nancy, Toffi and myself play Hortense, Phyllis and Susan, who live in a self-supporting environment, far away from their former stage, the Vanity Ballroom.
Get tickets for this program Friday, May 15th, 7:45pm.

Toffi in Raw

After that, you should just stay at Cinecycle for a screening of The Beaver Trilogy.

Then, take a cab to The Beaver for the afterparty. Mary Messhausen is hosting, Fay Slift is performing with M+M, Will Munro and Alex W are djing. You don’t want to miss that.

Broken Embraces Teaser Trailer

Below are the first 30 seconds of the new Pedro Alomodovar movie, Los Abrazos Rotos (Broken Embraces). The film was shot in Madrid and Lanzarote last year, featuring Penelope Cruz and Rossy de Palma (yay!).
Premieres are scheduled for Spain in March, Germany in August, North America in November. Hopefully, we’ll get it a bit earlier in Toronto with the TIFF in September.

Looking Shockingly Like Milk

Every gay blog on the planet has written about Milk. The new Gus van Sant biopic about Harvey Milk, the first openly gay city supervisor of San Francisco, and gay rights activist. Milk and Mayor George Moscone were shot to death by resigned city supervisor Dan White in 1978.

The movie opens later this year.
Sean Penn plays Harvey Milk.
