Just Came Out: Everything at Once

A seductive documentary, Everything at Once profiles Paco Moyano and Manolo Rodriguez, two Catalan photographers from the outskirts of Barcelona who have been together for thirty years.

Inspired by Caravaggio, Pasolini and Agnes Varda among others, their simple yet sophisticated style records the sex appeal of working class men, using natural light and abandoned locations. With great compassion and understanding, Paco and Manolo build an intimate relationship with their subjects, capturing not only their bare bodies but their inhibitions as well. In the end, they reveal just as much about themselves as they do the nude men in front of their cameras.

Everything At Once tells the beautiful story of two fascinating artists and a special relationship that has lasted for three decades.

Trailer Alert: One in a Thousand

When Iris (Sofia Cabrera) meets Renata (Ana Carolina Garcia) in the projects of One Thousand in Argentina, she is immediately and inexplicably attracted to her, but Renata’s presence also makes plenty of people uncomfortable… and prejudices begin to grow.

Iris will have to overcome her fears and struggle with her insecurities in order to experience first love. The two girls and their small group of friends are the queer resistance in a hostile environment where desire adapts many forms in the darkness, and gossip can turn into a hateful weapon.

A touching, engaging and intelligent new film from writer-director Clarisa Navas, One in a Thousand uses a talented group of young, non-professional actors to tell an inspiring story of standing for your truth, no matter who tries to shut you down.

Gypsy 83
Two goth misfits living in Sandusky, Ohio – musician Gypsy Vale (Sara Rue) and her younger queer protégé Clive Webb (Kett Turton) – decide to run away together to New York City so Gypsy can participate in an epic Stevie Nicks-cosplay event called “Night of 1,000 Stevies.” Along the way, they encounter other misfits that pave the way to their salvation, including washed-up singer Bambi LeBleau (played by the late, great Karen Black) and a confused Amish runaway (Anson Scoville). An indie hit when it was first released in 2001, Gypsy 83 is a touching queer coming-of-age flick from writer-director Todd Stephens (the filmmaker behind Another Gay Movie, Edge of Seventeen and the upcoming Swan Song). The film was recently remastered by the cult film label Altered Innocence.

 

No Hard Feelings
Parvis (Benjamin Radjaipour), the son of exiled Iranians, copes with life in his small hometown by indulging himself with pop culture, Grindr dates and raves. After being caught shoplifting, he is sentenced to community service at a refugee shelter where he meets siblings Banafshe and Amon (Banafshe Hourmazdi and Eidin Jalali), who have recently fled Iran. As a romantic attraction between Parvis and Amon grows, the fragile relationship between the three is put to the test. They find and lose each other throughout a summer of fleeting youth, an intense first love, an attempt at a joint future and the stark realization that, in Germany, they are not entirely equal. A critically-acclaimed new romantic drama, No Hard Feelings won the coveted Teddy Award for Best Queer Feature Film.

 

Cousins
Lucas (Paulo Sousa) lives with his religious Aunt Lourdes (Juliana Zancanaro) in a quiet, remote country town in Brazil. With nothing much else going on, the youngster spends his days gardening, playing keyboard and trying to avoid his aunt’s meddling attempts to set him up with the local girls. His life, however, is about to change drastically. He finds himself unexpectedly sharing a roof with Mario (played by screenwriter and co-director Thiago Cazado), a trouble-making distant cousin who has recently been released from prison. When pious Aunt Lourdes leaves for a religious retreat, Lucas and Mario become friends… and much, much more. Cousins is writer-director team Mauro Carvalho and Thiago Cazado’s second feature film following their debut romance About Us.

 

Socrates
When his mother dies, fifteen-year-old Socrates (Christian Malheiros) quickly finds his already tenuous life in the favelas of São Paulo pushed to the brink. Guided by an often-explosive temper, the volatile youth is desperate to find a job in order to keep the rent paid and to stay off the streets. When he crosses paths with the mysterious Maicon (Tales Ordakji), whose sketchy offer of quick cash takes Socrates to a wholly unexpected place, the young orphan must decide where his life is headed, what kind of person he is and who he will become. All the while, he’s desperately searching for his mother’s remains in order to say goodbye one last time. An astonishing film from writer-director Alexandre Moratto, Socrates won the coveted Someone to Watch Award at the 2019 Film Independent Spirit Awards.

 

Heartstone
In a remote fishing village in Iceland, teens Thor and Christian (Baldur Einarsson and Blaer Hinriksson) experience a turbulent summer. As one of them tries to win the heart of a girl, the other discovers that he is harboring romantic feelings for his best friend. When summer ends and the harsh nature of Iceland takes back its rights, it’s time to leave the playground and face adulthood for the first time. A gorgeous, emotional coming-of-age film, Heartstone won over critics all over the world. The Playlist said it’s “beautifully shot, touchingly performed and delivered with a thrillingly atmospheric sense of place.” And Screen International said it’s “affecting as well as perceptive in how it intimately depicts the blossoming of youth… just the right amount of confidence, compassion and clear-eyed style.”

Now Available On-Demand: The Carnival

Marco Berger, the prolific director behind The Blonde One, Young Hunter, Absent, Hawaii, Taekwondo and more, has a new movie available on-demand! The Carnival is a clever pseudo-documentary which centers around two men who grew up in the town of Gualeguaychú, a city in the east of Argentina near the border of Uruguay.

Every summer, the residents participate in the town’s traditional carnival, which transforms the men of the community into Dionysian figures via costumes, glitter and feathers.

While Berger captures the action – and the mostly straight male participants’ bodies – he also blurs the line between fiction and non-fiction, adding his unique cinematic spin, homoerotic themes and eye for dynamic male relationships to color and comment on the proceedings.

Check out these exclusive photos from the film below and click here to rent or download the film. The Carnival is available on-demand now at TLAgay!

 

 

Get four swoon-worth gay romantic comedies from director J.C. Calciano in one new set!

Get ready for the ultimate Gay Romance 4-Pack with The Classic Gay Romance Collection! Now you can own all four of these iconic gay romantic comedy films from beloved writer-director J.C. Calciano – several of which have been out of print for years – in one set. From the classic feel-good comedy Is it Just Me? to the riotously funny Steam Room Stories: The Movie, these four films are sure to satisfy your funny bone, as well as the hopeless romantic in you.

Originally released in 2010, Is it Just Me? is a gay rom-com take on Cyrano de Bergerac. Frustrated by his ongoing failure to meet “Mr. Right,” Blaine (Nicholas Downs) stumbles upon what might be his perfect match in an online chat room. That would be Xander (David Loren), a sweet, hunky Texan who has recently moved to Los Angeles. Smitten, Blaine finds he’s been mistakenly chatting to Xander under his go-go dancer roommate’s profile, setting in motion an increasingly complicated comedy of errors with romance as the ultimate objective.

Released the following year, eCupid adds a fun sci-fi spin to the rom-com formula. Marshall (Houston Rhines) is a cocky young ad man working at a dead-end job for a boss who overlooks his talents. After seven years with his boyfriend, Gabe (Noah Schuffman), Marshall’s love life has become too comfortable. Desperate for a new life, he goes looking online, where he comes upon a mysterious app called “eCupid” that guarantees to find true love. From the moment he downloads it, “eCupid” scans every inch of Marshall’s online world and instantly turns his life upside down. Marshall suddenly gets everything he thinks he wanted. Newly single and ready for adventure, “eCupid” overwhelms Marshall with sexy guys at every turn, each promising to be the man of his fantasies. But too much of a good thing may not be a good thing at all.

The 10-Year Plan follows Myles and Brody (Jack Turner and Michael Adam Hamilton), best friends and total opposites. Myles is a hopeless romantic looking for “Mr. Right.” Brody is a sexy player on the hunt for “Mr. Right Now.” These two friends make a plan that they’ll be together if both of them are still single in a decade. Nearly ten years later and still alone, both friends will do whatever it takes to avoid becoming a couple.

 

A hilarious feature-length comedy based on the wildly popular web series, Steam Room Stories: The Movie follows failing cosmetics magnate Sally Fay (Traci Lords), who will stop at nothing to possess the waters of our favorite steam room to help lift her sagging empire. What she doesn’t count on is the Steam Room Guys banding together to thwart her evil plans.
