ON DVD: The Best “Weekend” Ever, Plus: “The Dictator,” “Bernie,” And Dustin Lance Black’s “Virginia”

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Next »

Last year’s highly acclaimed drama Weekend, which chronicles an intense 48-hour gay romance, kicks off a pretty awesome week in home entertainment: Dustin Lance Black wrote and directed the semi-autobiographical Virginia, starring Jennifer Connelly as a schizophrenic raising a teenage son. Jack Black plays the titular gay man driven to the brink by Shirley MacLaine in Bernie. The despot of a fictitious country wreaks havoc in New York in Sacha Baron Cohen’s The Dictator (above). A closeted former hockey player and his adolescent daughter struggle in Grown Up Movie Star. And a pair of gay fathers search for their missing son in the quirky Sedona.

      Weekend was my favorite movie of last year. I was simply elegant and heartbreaking. I plan on spending the $30 for it. It deserves to be included in the Criterion Collection for sure.

      Weekend: real, honest, funny. The only gay movie I ever liked. Watched it twice on Netflix.

      It’s not really my favourite gay film, but I did think Weekend was a wonderful movie and more than any other gay film I’ve seen I think, it kind of stays with you long after it’s finished.
      I think it may become my favourite gay film, to be honest. It’s truer than any other I’ve seen, certainly.
      I may watch it again tonight…

      I love Weekend. I had a similar experience and I think a lot of guys have been there.
