Floating Skyscrapers

2013, Poland

Kuba (Mateusz Banasiuk), a champion swimmer, wants to have his cake and eat it too. He’s in a committed relationship with Sylwia (Marta Nieradkiewicz), but he’s carrying on an affair with Michal (Bartosz Gelner), a naïve, slightly younger fellow athlete who, initially, yearns for more affection than Kuba is willing to give in his state of sexual confusion. As the two boys spend more time together, Michal finds the courage to come out to his family while Kuba starts falling more and more in love with his best gay buddy. Sadly, Sylwia and won’t let Kuba go so easily. By trying to hold on to two loves at the same time, Kuba ensures as tragic ending for everyone involved. Prizing setting and mood over dialog and incident, Floating Skyscrapers makes up for a lack of action with gorgeously-rendered, highly erotic sex scenes. The director stages intimate moments that giving the audience a clear view of Kuba’s bisexuality, and showing how he treats both his male and female lovers.

Halloween Highlights: 50 Queer Horror Flicks We Think Are Worth a Look – Part 4

Second to last! We’re coming close to the end of this series! Being authorities on all things gay-cinema, we at TLAgay.com wanted to put in a good word for some queer movies that don’t make the usual ranked horror lists. We came up with a selection of 50 different gay titles that are either direct horror movies or horror adjacent (suspense, mysteries, thrillers). Below, you’ll find part four of our five-part list – in alphabetical order – with new lists appearing each Monday in October. Keep checking back each week for the latest additions!

We tried to limit these to films that are currently available on our site – either on DVD or Blu-ray, or available via our On-Demand service. If a movie is missing from this list, chances are good it’s just out of print or otherwise currently unavailable/hard to access. This isn’t, as you’ll see, a definitive list of the greatest gay horror – that’s not what we were going for. This is just a sampling of some offerings that usually fly under the radar. Some are good, some are great, some are delightfully campy and ridiculous, some might be downright terrible, but they’re all available to help get your into the Halloween spirit!

Palace of Fun

You’re Invited to the Palace of Fun

In a world of sun and sea, three young people on the brink of adulthood navigate the complexities of love, sex and secrecy with disastrous consequences. Coming out in October, Palace of Fun is a smart, stylish thriller that is going to keep the sizzle of summer lingering well into the fall.

 

Producer David Stocks, writer/director Eadward Stocks and actor/writer George Stocks (real-life brothers, if you hadn’t already guessed) are the masterminds behind the project and their gorgeous craftsmanship reveals their movie-loving roots. Seemingly inspired by art house thrillers of the 1960s and 70s (Purple Noon and Knife in the Water certainly come to mind), the siblings have done their cinematic homework and prove themselves talented filmmakers worth keeping an eye on.
