THE SCREENING ROOM

OUT ON DVD: Ryan Gosling in Drive; Skinnyfat Goes Soft, And Candy Is A Beautiful Darling

Skinnyfat
($24.99 DVD, Abstrakt Films)

When gay hipsters Chaz and Davy realize they’ve gone soft in the middle, they decide to give themselves an eating disorder—and do pretty much anything else that might give them hipbones “sharp enough to trim hedges.”  Satirical and un-PC, director Andy Bydalek’s 40-minute black comedy aims squarely at gay men’s obsession with self-image. It’s a body-fascism comedy—a bomcom! (So wrong it’s right, no?)
