New This Week: Director Marco Berger Explores Masculinity inThe Carnival

Marco Berger, the prolific director behind The Blonde One, Young Hunter, Absent, Hawaii, Taekwondo and more, has a new movie coming soon. 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.

Two buddies become dangerously entangled in the new erotic gay thriller Isaac

The debut film from directing duo David Matamoros and Angeles HernandezIsaac employs two different timelines to tell the story of two couples who clash together.

Former childhood friends Denis and Nacho (Ivan Sanchez and Pepe Ocio) had an intense relationship as teenagers. After years apart, they meet in a café and seemingly regain those distant ties of trust, affection and complicity.

Denis, who needs money for a business venture, doesn’t hesitate in asking Nacho for a loan. From there begins a game of mutual dependencies in which the two men’s partners – Marta (Maria Ribera) and Carmen (Erika Bleda) – are both implicated. And if this four-way collaboration was not complex enough, loose ends, social pressures, ambition, repressed desires and the guilt that has been weighing on the two men for many years further complicate this intense story of polyamory.

Watch the trailer for Isaac below and click here to pre-order your copy. The film is coming to DVD and VOD November 16th.

Another Gay Movie: 15-Year Anniversary Director’s Cut
Another Gay Movie has become a raunchy comedy classic – and this new 15-Year Anniversary Director’s Cut is more outrageous than ever! The film follows a group of insanely horny gay high school boys who are determined to lose their virginity by any means necessary. With bright colors, over-the-top humor and a cast stacked with hot guys and comedy ringers, director Todd Stephens (Edge of Seventeen) skewers the wildly popular teen movie craze of the late ’90s and early 2000s and gives this delicious parody a decidedly gay twist. The film is available now on-demand. Make sure to pick up the DVD as well. It’s packed with interviews, audio commentaries, original audition footage, a staged script reading and much, much more!


A provocative, sexy and visually-stunning new documentary, Bare follows acclaimed Belgian choreographer Thierry Smits through the process of creating Anima Ardens, his newest stage production featuring eleven completely naked male performers. In between breathtaking dance sequences, Bare reveals the artistic collaboration and conflict between choreographer and company as they build an avant-garde piece steeped in dark, primal energy and ritual. Together, they address questions of body politics, gender, censorship and a variety of taboo subjects. The film also traces the arduous process of auditioning, rehearsing and opening a new dance piece – which is apparently even harder when you’re totally nude!


The Blonde One
In the suburbs of Buenos Aires, Gabriel (Gaston Re) has just moved in with his colleague, Juan (Alfonso Barón). Shy and reserved, Gabriel is reluctant to follow Juan’s wandering hands and meaningful looks. With a revolving door of beauties streaming out of Juan’s bedroom, his machismo seems firmly in place. However, the attraction between the two men is undeniable. What starts out as a sexual relationship based on convenience of location soon develops into the engrossing evolution of a tender and intimate relationship. But, as reality begins to set in on their homemaking fantasy, something needs to give… or does it? Poignant and incredibly sexy, The Blonde One is one of the hottest gay movies of the past few years.


Breaking Fast
Set against the twinkling lights of West Hollywood, Breaking Fast is a delightful new culture-clash romantic comedy that follows Mo (Haaz Sleiman), a practicing Muslim still reeling from heartbreak. When an All-American guy named Kal (Michael Cassidy) offers to join him in his nightly Iftars – the traditional meal eaten by Muslims during Ramadan – meal after meal, the two start to discover they have more in common than meets the eye. The two soon start to fall in love over all the things that they have in common and – more importantly – the things they don’t. A major crowd-pleaser at various LGBTQ+ film festivals around the globe, Film Threat summed it up by calling Breaking Fast “as near a perfect film as one can ask for.”


Dancing on the Dark Side of the Moon
A futuristic lighthouse floats through dark space. Aboard is a “Spirit Guide” and his two “Younglings.” These three otherworldly beings are in the middle of an unusual journey. When Alexi asks about life on Earth, the Spirit Guide is compelled to show him what it’s like. Inspired by The Twilight Zone and the films of David Lynch, Dancing on the Dark Side of the Moon is a low-budget erotic fantasia from Babaloo Studios, the same company behind the films Necro-Mancing Dennis, Deadly Screams of a Naked Siren and Counselor Week at Camp Liberty. Like their other works, this film is packed to the brim with gorgeous naked twinks in a variety of explicit sexual situations. Viewer discretion is strongly advised!


Dry Wind
A gloriously erotic new film from Brazilian director Daniel Nolasco, Dry Wind follows factory worker Sandro (Leandro Faria Lelo) as he escapes his rural boredom via secret trysts with his co-worker Ricardo (Allan Jacinto Santana) – and through elaborate sexual fantasies that would make Tom of Finland himself blush. Though his sex life is in full swing, Sandro shies away from any emotional attachment, preferring to imagine worlds of anonymity, leather and unbridled fetish-play. When a new arrival to town (Rafael Teóphilo) – a certified hunk straight out of Sandro’s dreams – sets his sights on Ricardo, Sandro finds himself brimming with jealousy and fearing exclusion from the kind of romance he never thought he wanted.


Here Comes Your Man
What begins as a simple hookup blossoms into an unlikely romance between two young men in this charming and deeply sexy gay romantic comedy. When Jordan (Calvin Picou) and Aaron (Jason Alan Clark) meet in person after exchanging pics, their initial tryst is fraught with the kind awkward tension that suggests they might not be a perfect match. On top of that, Aaron is unaware that Jordan is, for all intents and purposes, “straight.” Confused about his sexuality, Jordan blocks Aaron’s number. When they run into each other weeks later, the truth comes out… and they find something undeniable about their strange romantic chemistry. But turning a one-night stand into “happily ever after” is not quite as easy as it seems.


Pornstar Pandemic
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, so many people found their industries grind to a halt… and porn stars are no exception.

A Skeleton in the Closet

Lucas (Samuel Gonzalez), an architect, travels to visit his sister, who lives in a remote town in Southern Chile. Beside the ocean, shrouded in the wintery mist, he meets Antonio (Antonio Altamirano), a boatswain on a local fishing boat. When an intense romance blossoms between them, their strength, independence, and adulthood become immovable, just like the ebb and flow of the tide. Confidently directed by Omar Zúñiga Hidalgo, The Strong Ones took home both the Audience Award and Grand Jury Prize at Outfest last year.

Altered Innocence is releasing a new special edition of the underseen queer indie classic Wild Tigers I Have Known

In Wild Tigers I Have Known, visionary director Cam Archer portrays the lives of teens in awkward gay first love.

Originally released in 2006, Wild Tigers I Have Known was a hit at the Sundance Film Festival and LGBTQ film festivals around the globe, but didn’t quite attract the same attention as similar contemporary films like Mysterious Skin, Thirteen or The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things. That’s a shame because Wild Tigers I Have Known is a true queer coming-of-age indie gem that seems ahead of its time 15 years later. It’s hard to imagine a film like it being made today, yet it feels completely essential at the same time.

The film follows Logan (Malcolm Stumpf), a middle schooler who is crushing on an older classmate named Rodeo (Patrick White). As the pair spend time together, Logan’s infatuation grows. Exploring gender fluidity for the first time, he invents a female persona and starts making sexually provocative phone calls to Rodeo at night, hoping to get even closer to the object of his affection.

For the film’s 15th Anniversary, cult indie label Altered Innocence has put together a restored version of this experimental queer classic on DVD and Blu-ray and packed it with tons of exclusive special features.

Watch the new trailer for Wild Tigers I Have Known below and click here to pre-order your copy. The new special edition will be available starting October 26th.


Coming Soon: On the Fringe of Wild

Peter (Harrison Browne) is a sensitive and shy teen who dreams of leaving his small northern Ontario town to pursue life as an artist. Unfortunately, his homophobic father (Andrew Bee) intends to “make him a man” instead. Sending him on a hunting trip one cold winter break, tensions run high and Peter runs away.

Lost, cold and reaching his breaking point, Peter meets Jack (Cameron Stewart), a kindred spirit who is also desperate to escape his toxic family situation. A romance quickly develops between the two teenage boys as they hide away in a secluded cabin, discovering each other and themselves. But the world outside eventually pulls them back and they’re soon stuck facing the circumstances they tried to so desperately flee.

Out This Week: Can You Bring It?

Can You Bring It: Bill T. Jones and D-Man in the Waters brings to life the creative process that culminated in choreographer-dancer-director Bill T. Jones‘s tour de force ballet D-Man in the Waters, one of the most important works of art to come out of the AIDS crisis.

In 1989, D-Man in the Waters gave physical manifestation to the fear, anger, grief and hope for salvation that the emerging Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company (both partners at the time) felt as they were embattled by the AIDS epidemic.

As a group of young dancers in the present re-interpret the work, they deepen their understanding of its power – exploring what is at stake in their own personal lives in order to commit and perform it successfully.

Through an extraordinary collage of interviews, archival material, and uniquely powerful cinematography, this lyrical documentary uses the story of this iconic dance to illustrate the power of art and the triumph of the human spirit.
