OUT ON DVD: Michael Fassbender Feels Shame, Gay Dysfunction In Domain And American Translation, And More!

Despite the arrival of springtime sun, it’s a dark week in queer home video entertainment. Hot Irish actor Michael Fassbender plays a sex addict we wouldn’t mind enabling in Shame, while a French Bonnie and Clyde take a queer-hunting road trip in American Translation. In Domain, a gay teen falls in with his dysfunctional auntie, while a real-life gay genius you probably haven’t heard of gets his due in Paul Goodman Changed My Life.

Okay, perhaps that last one isn’t so dark.

FIRST: It’s a Shame

    Probably a bad movie in every way [exploitative[,but Chris(Pierre) sure is pretty!

    Glad to see there’s finally a film on Goodman !!! Haven’t noticed any public comment on him since his death.
    Dating myself,but reading “Growing UP Absurd”,on a prof’s recommendation in the late 60’s,I found it already dated.
    “The Empire City”,on the other hand, is a great novel for anyone,of any sexual orientation.

    I cannot tell you how excited I am to see Goodman in a documentary. The trailer is superb. Goodman’s writings had a profound effect on many of us in the Sixties, and he, along with the Beats, served as role models for those growing up absurd. I had not known that he was a co-founder of Gestalt Therapy as I assumed it sprang fully grown from the head of the late Fritz Perls. It makes sense that when I researched a book I wrote about a “Me” Generation human relations seminar similar to est, I came upon Perls, who for all his faults emerges a fascinating, charismatic individual on the order of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Ginsberg’s mentor. Now I see that Goodman, too, was one of the “crazy gurus.”

    Fassbender is German-Irish: dad is German, mom is Irish.
