Glitterbox
"A collection of four films by director Derek Jarman, whose 'lush, experimental reflections on art, politics, sexuality and identity transcend and subvert ... the period costume drama, the biopic--as well as the boundaries of so-called gay filmmaking.' The Angelic Conversation: Ethereal super-8 mélange of homoerotic love, layered with languorous music by Coil and emotive readings of Shakespeare sonnets by Judi Dench. Caravaggio: The volatile life of the 17th-century painter re-imagined through his brilliant near-blasphemous paintings and flirtations with the Roman underworld. Wittgenstein: 'Portrait of the irreverent 20th-century philosopher who preferred detective fiction and Carmen Miranda musicals to Aristotle.' Blue: Over a Bue Screen, Derek Jarman lays bare his physical and spiritual state in a narration about his life, his struggle with AIDS, and his encroaching sightlessness."

Go Fish

Kia sets her up with Ely, an ex-student of hers who is in the process of terminating a long-distance relationship. They finally go out on a date and everyone insists on getting all the details."

When his dour housekeeper Hannah hires handsome young gardener Clayton Boone, the gay director and the simple yardman develop an unlikely friendship."
