    Outfest, where LA’s affluent gay elite pay to see movies that none of us will ever see or want to see, just so they can stand bask in their gay elitism at after parties while talking about movies that none of us will see or want to see.

    OPINION: The Go Doc Project looks like a great story but unnecessarily melodramatic (and maybe it’s because it’s taken from a ‘non-stripper’ point of view… I guess), but I can’t wait to see it. also Beyond The Walls looks heart wrenching and beautiful… Like Weekend beautiful.

    I’m sorry the cool kids won’t include you. Maybe your cousin will take you to prom.

  • Niall

    Will any of the movies include a 15min sex scene like Blue is the warmest colour? :P

    @Spike: What the hell does that mean, “none of us will ever see or want to see”? How can you know this? Do you have a crystal ball, are you a mind reader? If you’re not interested in the festival, or the films, that’s fine. But how can you make such a broad, sweeping and stupid statement? Do you realize that if one- ONE! – person who didn’t attend the festival sees or wants to see one of the films shown, then your entire moronic premise is invalidated?

    It also interests me that you claim no interest in or connection to the festival, dismissing it as the territory of gay “elites,” yet you feel strongly enough to make this angry, clenched-fist statement. If you don’t care, why the ax to grind?

    And if you’re on the other coast, you can see many of these films at QFest in Philadelphia this month. (Or you can pout about our festival, too. We don’t care.)

    I want to see The Happy Sad.

    I wish gay US filmmakers would make films about people over the age of 30, though. What about middle-aged and older gay people? There are quite a few out there.
