      Joe is exceptionally cool. His “Tropical Malady” is one of the best gay love stories ever made.

      I am so amazed with how young filmmaker Xavier Dolan is.

      At 20, his first feature film “I Killed My Mother” was featured at Cannes (one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world) and won 3 awards including the Prix Regards Jeunes award. At 21, he is accepted again into Cannes with his second feature film “Heartbeats” and wins another Regards Jeunes award. WTF!

      I AM SO EFFING JEALOUS!!!!!!!!
