DVD: “The Iceman,” “Petunia,” “I Do,” & More!


The issue of gay marriage hasn’t been in the news so much lately, what with Russia and all, but it kicks off this week’s home entertainment lineup!

In I Do, a gay immigrant may need to marry a woman to stay in the USA, while an intense and troubled queer affair takes place between musicians in Beyond The Walls.

The exploits of a big dysfunctional family keeps Petunia lively, and actor Michael Shannon brings a real-life hitman’s work to life in The Iceman.


I Do

($24.99 DVD; Breaking Glass Pictures)

In the latest LGBT festival hit from director Glenn Gaylord, set before DOMA was struck down, a British gay man in the USA, Jack, falls for a Spanish architect, Mano. Unfortunately, Jack’s going to be deported unless he marries, and although Mano would make a great husband, legally they wouldn’t get any sort of immigration benefits.  Two hours’ worth of extras include a commentary, cast Q&A, deleted scenes, behind the scenes and interviews, music videos, and more!


Beyond The Walls

($27.99 DVD; Strand Releasing)

In Brussels, Belgium, gay musicians Paolo and Ilir fall hard for each other, causing a split between Paolo and his understandably unhappy girlfriend. However, a drug arrest and at least one other guy threaten to break up this pair… A complicated romance indeed, pair this one with Ira Sachs’ Keep The Lights On.


($24.99 DVD; Wolfe Releasing)

The Petunias are not your average dysfunctional family. The parents, both psychoanalysts, could use a dose of couple’s therapy themselves, while their brood includes a celibate gay son, a sex addict, and a recently married cuckold. Director Ash Christian’s comedy boasts an excellent cast including Michael Urie, Christine Lahti, Thora Birch, and Brittany Snow. Extras include a behind the scenes featurette and commentary.

The Iceman

($29.99 Blu-ray, $28.99 DVD; Millennium)

We loved him as General Zod, and Michael Shannon is at his evildoing best again playing real life contract killer – and dedicated family guy – Richard Kuklinski. Extras include a couple of making-of featurettes.

    My boyfriend was the makeup artist for Michael Shannon on Iceman. Mr. Shannon was downright cruel to my bf, breaking things, throwing tantrums. The BF told me he felt like a battered wife. I can’t watch anything that SOB is in. I think there’s a reason he always plays a jerk.

    Once again, Queerty refuses to point out things that are awesome, so I will take it upon myself to point out that the special edition Blu-Ray of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie has been released, including the never before released Deleted Scenes/Alternate Ending that I’ve been drooling over for the last 15 years.

    Stories we Tell is way better than these movies and its barely mentioned.

    What a shame. Hopefully people discover it and get to see it for themselves.
