In The Body of Angels, Remi listens to the birds and falls ain the hedges while, Gabriel does something far more sinister. In En Retour, Jean-Marc meets Simon, a younger man, for dinner. After a promising start, the evening plunges into extreme drama. Ruptures follows Gabriel and Andre, ex-boyfriends who cross paths for the first time in ten years.

Seat in Shadow (c) TLA Releasing

Coming Soon: Seat in Shadow

The debut feature film of renowned Scottish artist/filmmaker Henry CoombesSeat in Shadow is a witty, perceptive study of social mores, sexual excess and the bizarre symbiotic relationship between doctor and patient, teacher and pupil; artist and muse.

 

Albert (David Sillars), an eccentric, aging painter doubling as an unconventional, Jung-inspired psychotherapist, is asked to counsel his friend’s lethargic grandson Ben (Jonathan Leslie), whose ongoing boyfriend problems are rapidly fueling an already deep depression. Their subsequent therapy sessions, though, seem to reveal as much about Albert as they do about the troubled young Ben. Soon, a deeply unusual bond is formed.

Even Lovers Get the Blues (c) TLA Releasing

Just Came Out: Even Lovers Get the Blues

Parties and love affairs lead to heart searching, deep desires and a craving to live life to the fullest as a group of good friends come to terms with the unexpected death of beloved group member, Hugo. Ana, Hugo’s partner, attempts to overcome her loss by going to sex clubs, while Hugo’s brother, Arthur finds comfort in Grindr hook-ups. One night Arthur begins an affair with sexy Graciano, who has yet to come to terms with his bisexuality, adding fuel to an already raging fire. Even Lovers Get the Blues is an explicit portrait of the love and the fluid sexual lives of disenchanted and passionate young people.

 

A contemporary pan-sexual drama that can best described as the darker, equally sexy Belgian versions of John Cameron Mitchell’s Shortbus, this film features a ton of nudity and some truly explicit sex scenes. It’s an adult-only exploration of the love and sexual lives of a group of fascinating young lovers. And though there is lots of explicit sex, as we mentioned, this isn’t some debauched affair. There are deeply emotional characters that you will come to care about – and romance and discovery a-plenty!

Bromance

2016, Argentina

Welcome back to the fall of 1996. When four friends go on a camping trip in a remote part of Argentina, sexual tensions quickly bubble to the surface. Once in virtual seclusion by the beach, Juli, the only girl of the group, quickly recognizes that the boys seem to have a closer relationship than what she would consider “normal” (it’s only ’96, after all). The line between friendship and love fade further for two of the boys in particular as their desire becomes too much to bear. When what started as a simple getaway quickly becomes tinged with sex, romance and conflict, everyone is forced to confront who they really are for the very first time. Starring Javier De Pietro, the scrumptious star of Absent and Sexual Tension: Volatile, Bromance uses a clever found-footage aesthetic to deliver a thoughtful and supremely sexy meditation on young, burgeoning gay love.

Halloween Highlights: 50 Queer Horror Flicks We Think Are Worth a Look – Part 1

If you’re the same kind of scare-seeking movie geek that I am, you’ll know that October is a time to light a few candles, turn down the lights, open up the windows to let in that fresh autumn breeze… before really setting the mood with some seasonally-appropriate scary movies! This month, I’m sure we’ll revisit some tried and true classics (think The Exorcist, The Shining, Rosemary’s Baby, the original Halloween). I have plans to finally bust open the Criterion Collection edition of Don’t Look Now I bought forever ago. Being authorities on all things gay-cinema, though, 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 the first ten movies – 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!

Lose Your Head (c) Canteen Outlaws

Lose Your Head

2013, Germany

Lured by Berlin’s reputation as city with a pulsating night life, young Luis (Fernando Tielve) leaves his boyfriend behind to travel there – eager to indulge in drugs, sex, partying, music and mindless fun. Somewhat innocent and certainly naïve, wide-eyed Luis is quickly sucked into the dizzying whirlwind of the club scene where he meets up with a strange bohemian crowd, does coke and hooks up with Viktor (Marko Mandic), a domineering Ukrainian with his own set of hidden problems. After he meets a couple looking for a missing man who bears a striking resemblance to him, and after Viktor becomes more menacing, Luis gives in to paranoia as a sense of deteriorating reality begins to overcome him. Lose Your Head is a complex, “Alice in Wonderland”-like tale of a young man methodically driven out of control.

Furious Desires

Just Came Out: Furious Desires

A brand-new compilation of stellar short films is out this week from TLA Releasing! Gay themed short films are often hard to find outside of the festival circuit, but this collection bring you five of them for one low price!

 

Desire is mysterious. Desire is overwhelming. Desire is tragic. Desire is FURIOUS. The many permutations of that strange thing called desire are on full display in this stunning collection of short films: <i>Daytime Doorman</i> tracks the burgeoning desire between Marcelo and his sexy doorman Marcio. <i>Xavier</i> charts the beginnings of desire when Nicholas begins to notice his son, Xavier, only pays attention to certain types of boys. <i>The Other Side</i> is about the frustrations of unfulfilled desire when the object of your lust is beyond your reach – literally. <i>The Tiger’s Fight</i> explores what happens when one man, unbound by the ancient traditions, decides to subvert what’s expected of him to declare his desire for his best friend. Finally, in <i>Loris Is Fine</i>, we learn about the lengths two young lovers will go to prove that their love is beyond desire altogether.
