Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow_Stills_01_edited

Camp, cult, Cuba, queers… we’ve got it all this week in home entertainment!

Gay lives in Cuba and Taiwan are the focus of, respectively, sexy drama The Last Match and rom-com Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? (above).

The incredible tale behind the most insane, visionary sci-fi film that never actually got made is revealed in Jodorowsky’s Dune. Johnny Knoxville serves up additional, previously unseen helpings of elderly Irv Zisman in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.5, while Ian McKellan and Derek Jacobi play a gay couple in the long-awaited U.S. release of British sitcom Vicious: Season One.

 


The Last Match

($24.99 DVD; TLA)

Director Antonio Hens, of the uber-hot 2007 import Clandestinos, makes another steamy return with this Havana-set tale of a pair of hot young Cubans – one a hustler, the other recently engaged – who fall for each other. Muy caliente!!

 

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

($24.95 DVD; Film Movement)

In director Arvin Chen’s queer Taiwanese rom-com, a married-with-children optometrist, Weichung, reconnects with Stephen, an old friend who is also married yet manages to live a sassy gay life. When Weichung learns that you can have your straight cake and penis too, and he falls for an adorable flight attendant, what might this mean? A closeted double-life? A look inside a dichotomous society and Taiwan’s lively capital city of Taipei, this is a rare treat! Includes a bonus 13-minute short film, Mei.

 

Vicious: Season One

($29.99 DVD; PBS)

In this 2013 British TV sitcom, Ian McKellan and Derek Jacobi portrayed Freddie and Stewart, a gay couple together for almost 50 years. A little bit retro, a little bit meta (McKellan plays an actor), and, well, maybe more than a little bit camp, this first season features plenty of pith, shade, and co-stars like Game of Thrones‘ Iwan Theon in a less dastardly turn as the couple’s neighbor, and Marcia Warren.

 

Jodorowsky’s Dune

($40.99 Blu-ray; Sony)

Visionary cult director and comic book writer Alejandro Jodorowsky — of midnight cinema classics El Topo, The Holy Mountain, and Santa Sangre fame — attempted to mount an insane, trippy, epic version of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel Dune during the 1970s. Despite an incredible amount of pre-production and expense, involving extensive storyboards and conceptual artwork by HR Giger and Moebius, a soundtrack by Pink Floyd, and actors David Carradine and Salvador Dali (how that came to be is a pretty insane anecdote in its own), it fell apart. Yet, as revealed in this fabulously entertaining documentary, it laid the groundwork for many future, iconic films (including the Alien franchise) and influenced numerous other filmmakers. Extras include deleted scenes.

 

Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa .5

($22.98 Blu-ray, $15.99 DVD; Paramount)

Johnny Knoxville’s rascally old man alter-ego, Irv Zisman, gets up to even more trouble-causing antics in this companion compilation of deleted scenes and outtakes from last year’s Bad Grandpa. While you can catch it on Netflix streaming at the moment, the Blu-ray edition includes an additional 40 minutes’ worth of material.

      Well nothing could have been worse than Lynch’s Dune, ultimately I don’t think it would ever work as a blockbuster; the book is so dry and humourless.

      Alejandro Jodorowsky is a fucking L-E-G-E-N-D. You owe it to yourself to watch most of his filmography.

      Smoke up/drop your acid for El Topo and Holy Mountain, but make sure to sober up for Santa Sangre, because that shit gets mad sinister.

      I’ve watched The Holy Mountain on methoxetamine, still his films are hardly commercial to say the least…
